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.

Does what it says

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

Temp range is spot on. I mostly wear with a liner, so a bit lrg on Bare hands but w/ liners, pushes the temp down to low 40sF. I consider these "over gloves" have worn a fair amount in the rain & have not experienced the slippery thing other reviews say. Almost no stretch so yes fit is not tight but great early winter, early spring, all around great performing gloves. Stash a liner & your good to go.

Not Assos Standards

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: M

The glove and finger tips are an awkward fit. The traction nubs on the palm and fingers are hard and slick offering no grip on the controls or bottles. Scrubbed palm and fingers on the concrete and it helped a bit. Not that warm either........

Unimpressive protection & Awkward fit

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

These are OK down to about 50 °F for me for anything over an hour, from 50 down to 45, they're OK for 30-60 min's. Below 45 my fingers are hurting within 30 min's when riding at typical road speeds. The fingers are a bit on the long side for the correct hand size, and as another reviewer noted, a bit weird. The feel with Shimano integrated brake/shifter levers is awkward and clumsy. My old PI Cyclone gel gloves, which were less than half the price, do a better job against cold, and they fit better down the fingers too.

I'm going to try these with Castelli glove liners and see if that helps. Also trying out Gore gloves for better protection & fit.

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.

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.
