Description

Maximum warmth.

Riding a bike in wintry conditions with under-insulated gloves is a recipe for disaster. After all, you have to be able to feel the brakes to use them correctly. For the coldest rides, consider the Louis Garneau LG SuperShield Gloves -- they're Garneau's warmest, combining a lobster claw design with superior protection from the elements. However, they also offer plenty of breathability to ensure proper moisture management.

For a manufacturer, insulating cycling gloves properly requires maximizing warmth while minimizing bulk. The LG SuperShield Gloves accomplish this feat by combining a Drytex 3M lining with varying thicknesses of Thinsulate interlining. Naturally, there's thicker insulation around the fingers and less at the palm. Because that insulation isn't worth much when saturated, the exterior of the gloves is constructed of Garneau's Breathable Twillwave with a fully waterproof and breathable Hipora membrane.

Gloves can become saturated from the inside, too -- that's why Garneau incorporated their Ergo Air concept into these. Strategic ventilation at the palm ensures that sweat has an opportunity to evaporate. An Amara palm with strategically-placed foam padding gives you superior grip and relief from chatter-induced numbness. Reflective piping provides some added visibility. The Garneau LG SuperShield Gloves come in sizes Small through XX-Large and in Black.

LG Lobster mitts

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

What the product description doesn't tell you is that even though these are lobster claw-type mittens, all fingers are are separated by fabric, like a glove in a lobster claw mitten. I was under the impression that finger-on-finger contact provided more warmth. Even so, these are pretty warm and have worked real well some days, and not so well other days. I live in Virginia and winter weather is variable. Some weekends are bitter cold and others are quite warm. I have worn these mittens in temperatures ranging from 20's to 40's. A little more padding between the palm and the handlebar would be nice. Overall a good piece of winter cycling gear.

best gloves I've worn

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

I am plagued with cold fingers over the years I have tried everything and these gloves are the first pair of lobster claw gloves I have used and they are fantastic! They keep my fingers warm down into the low 20's for 30-40 mile rides.

The super-lobster.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are the super-lobster. They are insanely worm for how low-bulk they are.
I picked them up from a store in CA thinking they were fall gloves just because they didn't look that burly. I was mistaken and have since used them in the coldest rider i've ever done (to be fair that was only ~28F with little wind).
