There is no "one-glove-fits-all" – but we have gloves for all riding styles and conditions

The perfect winter cycling gloves for you will depend on the weather conditions you ride in and the style of riding you are doing. Whether you are endurance training for hours in sub-zero conditions or racing a short fast cyclocross race; there is a glove within the GripGrab range to suit your needs.


Weather conditions

MILD Winter

Comfort range: 8 to 15°C

Gloves for the transition seasons of spring, autumn and the milder days of winter need to be lightweight and breathable, while adaptable to a variety of temperatures.

GripGrab's spring-autumn gloves feature flexible single layer fabric designs. This style will offer light insulation when the temperature begins to feel a bit chilly, but maximum breathability so you can keep wearing them even as temperatures rise throughout your ride.

Insulation in the form of glove linings and fibre fill adds protection from cold temperatures, but also adds bulk to a glove’s design. 

In our premium level winter gloves, the fibre fill insulation is award winning Primaloft® Gold – offering maximum insulation with minimal bulk; so you retain the best possible feel and control of your handlebars.

Waterproof vs windproof

In freezing rain or snow, gloves with a fully waterproof membrane in their construction will create a protective capsule for your hands – keeping them dry and comfortable.

For most winter conditions however, an outer windproof fabric will offer the protection from windchill you need without the additional expense and reduced breathability of a waterproof construction.

Liner gloves

Liner gloves are those worn inside other gloves, to trap an additional layer of insulating air. Liner gloves can turn your winter gloves into deep winter gloves, or provide even more insulation in your deep winter gloves.

Liner gloves are best used with slightly looser fitting outer gloves so that you don’t cramp your hands inside with the added bulk. Therefore, you may need to size up in your outer gloves if you want to wear liners inside.
