Description

Warm and ready for winter roads.


Assos' fuguGloves_S7 are the full-on winter gauntlet. They do things that repurposed ski gloves can't do. In the cycling world, gloves are only made to accommodate the sweating that comes with prolonged aerobic activity, but the Assos fuguGloves_S7 do more than merely accommodate over-heating digits.

There are many problems with typical non-cycling winter gloves. One being that the fabric doesn't stretch well; which makes holding onto handlebars more difficult than it should be. Another is that the insulation is rather bulky, inhibiting motion and further increasing the difficulty of grasping the bars. Assos fuguGloves DetailThe typical winter glove's insulation makes for poor padding — it may initially feel ok, but it gets matted down over time.

Assos solves all these problems with the fuguGloves_S7. They protect your hands from chilly winds and rain with its strataGonLight fabric — a stretch nylon bonded to a waterproof and breathable membrane. This fabric demonstrates its ingenuity in how it closes its own pores in the cold, and then opens them up when it senses heat. The 'smart' system grants you more insulation and venting when you need it. Inside, there's a thin-layer of micro-fleece that works great for insulation and moisture wicking, as well.

The fuguGloves have strategic padding on the palms, as well as external reinforcing material in the high-wear areas. There's elastic at the wrist with a zipper just below. The zipper offers several functions at once. It eases entry and exit, it seals your jacket from the cold, and it allows venting to keep your hands from getting too warm.

The Assos fuguGloves_S7 are part of climaRange 6 — what Assos call winter. According to Assos estimations, you'll feel comfortable in these gloves in 32-46 degrees F (0-8/260 C) temperature ranges. Use Assos insulatorGloves as a base layer, and the FuguGloves should keep you warm for another several degrees colder. They come in the color Black Volkanga and sizes run from X-Small to X-Large.

Only gloves i've found to work for me!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This review is a year old, i bought these from CC during the winter of 2012-2013, and had tried to figure out a glove situation for long 3-5 hour rides in 32Fish temperatures. I tried a few pairs from pearl isuzu and gore , but was unable to figure out a glove situation. I do agree with some of what has been said that these gloves (by themselves) can take you down to about 40 degrees comfortably. For me below 40F the gloves alone* are not enough, however, i have very thin silk glove liners from a ski company seirus (12$ on amazon) that I use with the assos and i can report plenty of successful rides at* 32F for 3-5 hours. For sub 32F rides under 2 hours, this same setup works for me. (Dry conditions). These gloves are not waterproof. Hope this helps someone. YES they are pricey, but if you ride alot during the winter, and use them... I think they are worth it!

Not the usual Assos quality

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These gloves grip nicely and fit comfortably, but do not keep my hands as warm as I would expect from something out of the Assos Fugu series that costs about $150. I have worn these over my Assos insulator gloves on many rides in temperatures in the mid-20s to mid-30s, day and night. I always ride very hard. After about 20 miles or so my fingers usually start going numb, so I have to constantly flex them to keep the blood flowing and reduce the numbness. In the upper 30's, they seem to work alright on 50 to 60-mile rides when worn over my insulator gloves. Also, the zipper on the side of each glove is pretty much useless... it doesn't really loosen the glove for inserting your hand, nor does it tighten it significantly after your hands are inside. Inserting/removing your hand is pretty much the same, whether zipped or unzipped.

Also, I noticed that unlike all of the other Assos products I own, these gloves are not made in Europe... they are made in China. But this may not have anything to do with their lack of warmth. The material and construction does appear to be pretty good, so it could just be poor design... but that would be very strange coming from Assos.

The Assos Early Winter Gloves may actually be almost as warm as these... and they look way, way cooler. And by cooler I mean glamtastic. I am NOT talking about the ones currently being sold by Competitive Cyclist with the stripes down the middle two fingers! These are different and they can be obtained at the Assos factory outlet. They are made in Italy and do their job very well... I usually wear them on intermediate-temperature rides, either alone or with my insulator gloves underneath.

Best deep winter gloves I've owned.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

My hands will sweat in these in temperatures above 35 F and I'm fairly comfortable in them down to 25 F (humidity dependent). My son is begging me to get him a pair for Christmas as the other pairs of gloves I've used in the past are now his... they aren't good enough for extreme cold temperatures.

Save your money

These gloves are all about fashion and useless in temperatures below 45F. I've ridden with them twice when temps are in the low to mid 30s and warming. Both times I had "meatcicles" for fingers until the temps got well into the 40s. I'm not into suffering for fashion and these are not worth the high price of entry into the Assos club.

I disagree with this comment. I've had these gloves since their release, and prior to this I used the ALS insulator with the Assos Early Winter Gloves. The ALS insulator with the Early Winter gloves was quite comfortable down to around 35 F, unless the weather was extremely humid, then my hands would get colder faster... However my personal experience was that I was in fact able to ride more comfortably down to around 25 F with the Fugu gloves. In fact they are so warm that my hands would get sweaty in any temperature over 35-37 (humidity dependent).

However I will say that I'm sure the pace of the ride makes a huge difference, if your heart rate is sitting around zone 1 or 2, then you might find that your hands do in fact get colder faster and at warmer temperatures. But if you're training and keeping your heart rate at a decent level, these gloves will be your go to gloves for 25-35 F temperatures.

This is my personal opinion, but my son agrees with me... he gets all my hand me downs and I let him try these on one of his rides when I wasn't using them... he's saving his allowance to buy these over the other 6 different types of winter gloves (including the above mentioned assos glove combination) that he has had handed down to him. For a 15 year old who's heart rate spikes to >200 bpm, and seems to stay warmer than me, I'll take that as a confirmation that these are some pretty good gloves, if my opinion isn't good enough.

I agree very much with this review. These gloves fit well and I the zippered cuffs are very nice, but I've found they don't work well below 40. I commute in the Northeast winter and have turned to Castelli's glove line, which I think work much better than these. I really agree that these are not worth the dollars you spend on them and there's much better out there for less. fwiw, I used these for an entire season and feel like I put them through the ringer.
