Gore Bike Wear Fusion GTX Gloves $89.95
Intervals or warm gloves?
No one likes riding with cold hands, but lacking dexterity because of bulky gloves is also hardly ideal. The Gore Fusion GTX Gloves hit the elusive sweet spot by giving you warmth while still giving your fingers enough room for movement so you'll be able to shift efficiently or fish for a gel pack out of your back pocket.
Waterproof and warm, the Gore-Tex element provided by the gloves will make sure that winter wetness will not reach your digits, while the breathable thermo insert will keep moisture build-up at bay. With the Dual Chamber technology, the inside chamber is sewn into the glove. The dual chamber makes it more versatile as one chamber allows for a more tactile grip with added dexterity, and the other chamber is completely focused on adding warmth. Both chambers feel like a natural glove and one would never guess that it has a dual lining.
A winter glove has to be sturdy too since there is nothing worse than holes appearing at the finger tips or in the palm, letting in the cold and wet. To prevent any such untoward occurrences, Gore has reinforced the Fusion GTX Gloves in the high-wear areas. The space between the thumb and forefinger has been strengthened for a better grip and added durability. All the fingers have been coated with silicone which not only gives them greater durability, but also adds to the fingers ability to grip and grab wanted items.
The palm and inner forehand have been a thin layer of foam padding for greater comfort on the bars in addition to adding a touch of extra insulation. The Velcro closure at the wrist helps customize the opening size so that you can slam them shut directly against your skin, or you can leave them open a little wider to accommodate thicker sleeves you may have with a winter riding jacket.
The Gore Fusion GTX Gloves come with a reflective logo to help keep you visible on dark cold days. They are available in Black and come in sizes Medium through XX-Large.
- Reflective logos keep you visible in low-light
- Hook-&-loop adjustment at wrist for a secure fit
- Silicone coated fingers for improved grip in wet weather
- Reinforced between thumb and forefinger for a solid hold on the bars

Sizing for ladies...
I need a serious winter glove for riding in the 30's or even colder. The ladies' line up doesn't offer much. I wear a 'M' in the ladies' ALP-X glove, could have maybe used a 'L'. Hand measurement is 8" (relatively short fingers). Also, possibly considering a 'lobster' type glove, which may be the best for serious winter-riding.
What might be the best size to order in these???
(use: for both road/trail)
Thanks so very much!
The ALP-X would work for your temperature range needs. For a men's size, I would still suggest a medium since you could have possibly used a women's large. Also, the medium should give you extra room to wear a thin inner liner for the really cold days. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. email@example.com
Awesome winter gloves
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I've used these through 3 snow storms now in 30-minute rides to work and they've held their own. My fingers have stayed nice and warm, even with temps in the high teens. They took about two weeks to break in, but they're not too stiff at all. The Gore Tex needs no reviews - my hands stay 100% dry. Like everyone else says, they run small, I needed a L when all my ski gloves are M. The cuff is tight/high also, so it's impossible to wear a watch. Other than that, well worth the $70.
Extraordinary warm. Super small
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
These gloves are by far the warmest gloves I've tried. I seriously doubt any digits could go numb or even get cold while wearing these. The gloves do run really really small. I normally wear a medium glove, but ordered a size large based on reviews stating to go up a size or two. Despite fitting a medium glove per their chart, the large is too small as well and I will be returning these for an X-large.
These are the real deal
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
These gloves are no joke. I'm a exreme cold weather junkie (especially gloves) these bad boys are by FAR the best and warmest cold weather bike gloves made hands down. Like the other poster they run very small. I would at least get them 2 size's up from your true size. You will not be dissapointed. I've used them down to -10 F so far and they were toasty. I believe they could handle -20 F for me (my hands run on the warm side). ALL Gore bike stuff runs small to size.
serious gloves going on here
These run small. I returned a large pair. Pretty bulky cold weather gloves. Too heavy duty for my climate. Nice quality though.
Is there a cold weather glove that is...
Is there a cold weather glove that is especially good for cold thumbs? My husband feels it there and can't seem to find a glove fix.
if there is a glove for cold thumbs, this will be the warmest option we have. Also fully waterproof and guaranteed to keep you dry. I've skied in this glove and been warm all day. It's definitely the warmest Gore Bike Wear glove.
hope that helps!
