Looking to extend my road biking season, I've been hunting for a thicker pair of long-fingered gloves. These advertise they are good for 40-60F (4-15C). First ride (20miles) was a mix of flats/cat5 climbs, on a morning when temperature was 46F (8C) with light wind/clouds my hands were very comfortably warm. I was also wearing bib shorts, long sleeve base layer, sun sleeves, long sleeve jersey, and thin POC beanie under my helmet. Temperature-wise, was very happy and comfortable. The palm padding is quite thin, however. Riding in grips was less comfortable than what I'm used to with fingerless gloves, especially in my left hand when shifting. No issues riding on tops or drops, but I spend most of my ride (85-90%) in the grips. I may double up with fingerless gloves underneath and see how that goes. I also noticed that the finger length was long by 1/2" (~1cm), which was only an issue when trying to use my bar-mounted phone to skip songs or interface with my ride-logging app. In summary, these are a good thickness for deep fall, very early spring but need better padding and shorter finger length.
