Warmth to keep your season going.

Lightweight windproof/breathable gloves are the foundation of cold weather hand protection. And they've been the center of Assos' cold weather hand protection for years; they offered an earlier iteration of these earlyWinterGloves as the centerpiece of a three-component system: liner, windproof/breathable glove, windproof lobster-style overglove. They've taken those classic airBlock-backed gloves, and updated them with their strataGonMedium fabric.

As part of Assos' new line of windproof/breathable fabrics, strataGonMedium is a three-layer laminated fabric, incorporating insulation, breathability, and stretch into a fabric that keeps the wind at bay. These gloves might be a bit warm at 60 F, but they can be worn alone down to about 40 F and even colder with the addition of a liner like the insulatorGloves.

As with earlier versions of these gloves, they have a long cuff that extends well past your wrist and a reinforced area that is designed so that you can yank them into place without fear of damage. The palm has thin, strategic padding laminated to gripper material. You'll get insulation from the vibrations of coarse roads, and you'll have a good grip on the handlebars, even in wet conditions.

The Assos earlyWinterGloves are part of climaRange 5, aka earlyWinter, which is 40-60 F (6-12 C) by Assos' estimation. They come in Black with White stripes and White with Black stripes. Sizes run from X-Small to X-Large.

Great early winter glove

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I've used this early last spring and this fall. The fit is great. The glove is warm but not overly thick. The glove has a long cuff which holds the glove in place. The grips on the fingers are great. The top portion of the glove is slightly thicker than the lower portion. This helps keep my hands warm while stopping the glove from feeling too thick. I have very large hands and the XL fits perfectly.

Good for 2 seasons

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are good for colder Utah days in the spring & fall. Sizes seemed a bit on the big or small side, but I settled for a L. Not the warmest when things get wet.


  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Assos' temperature range on these gloves is spot on accurate in my riding. They are a bit stiff (took forever to break them in and I'm still not satisfied) and the workmanship around the fingertips is pretty wonky (the stitching does not line up and the fingers look like trapezoids, which is just sloppy). The biggest issue I have with them, however, is the grip is incredibly slippery. They work fine if you are on the rubberized hoods, but if you are on the bars using any kind of slick bar bar tape (like Fizik), it's very difficult to feel secure in the grip. Forget it, if you have to do anything with downtube shifters. I've had much better experience with other gloves on the market and spent far, far less.

Great gloves if it's dry

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These gloves are very good from the mid 50s down to freezing in dry climates and upper 30s/low 40s if you're in a humid cold. Extremely warm for how light they are and as windproof as they claim. With a liner they can go even colder than advertised, but as soon as it rains they stop being warm. To be fair, their description does not mention any water resistance. I've put them through snowy winter rides in the Rockies, the Appalachians and now the cold rains of the southeast. They'll hold up to a good snow for an hour or so until it starts to soak in, but again they immediately lose their insulating properties. I also wish that it had a soft fabric over the back of the thumb for wiping snot on hard, cold rides. The current material will chew up your nose a bit. Overall a great set of gloves for what they are designed to do, but if I think I might get caught in a cold rain I'm reaching for different set of gloves.
