Polaris 2 Waterproof Winter Gloves



The Polaris 2 are your ultimate deep winter wet weather companion: gloves to keep you comfortable even in freezing rain and driving snow. They have a premium four-layer design for warmth against all weathers – wind, rain and snow – and are made with recycled materials.

To help you get the most out of the Polaris 2 we have collected all the inside knowledge and experience from our test riders and R&D team on this page.

Rider's Guide

  • The Polaris 2 gloves should have a snug fit to optimise their insulating properties
  • Preferences differ, but for most riders these gloves are perfect for sub-zero and cold conditions between -5 and 8°C
  • When removing these gloves pinch the fingertips of the gloves as you wriggle out your fingers. This will avoid the soft inner lining from separating from the outer membranes
  • For even more insulation in the coldest weather conditions, you could combine these gloves with a pair of liner gloves – but you will need to size up when purchasing your Polaris winter gloves
  • The lining of these gloves has an anti-bacterial treatment that helps to reduce the build up of odour-causing bacteria; potentially reducing how often you need to wash them.
  • If your gloves are not too dirty, consider spot cleaning them with a sponge to avoid giving them and the environment a hard time by using your washing machine
  • As well as a fully waterproof membrane, these gloves have a Durable Water Repellent fabric treatment (eco-friendly DWR finish) to stop the outer fabric absorbing too much water. This treatment will last for approximately 20 machine washes, but you can easily reapply it with wash-in or spray-on solutions

...and remember – you are wearing high quality cycling essentials from GripGrab that are built to last. Take care of them and they will take care of you for many years to come - enjoy your ride!


When we designed the Polaris 2, we wanted to create a pair of gloves that would be the ultimate deep winter wet weather companion; gloves to keep you comfortable even in freezing rain and driving snow. The result is based on our previous best-selling Optimus gloves, but with some notable evolutions. The Polaris 2 gloves have a four-layer design: with a windproof outer fabric, a fully waterproof membrane, a layer of Primaloft® insulation, and then a soft fleece inner lining fabric. The gloves use Primaloft® Gold – a very low bulk insulation in the palm (100% recycled material), then Primaloft® Gold Active+ (55% recycled) on the back side; this insulation is best-in-class for the ultimate protection against cold weather conditions. The exceptional breathability and moisture wicking performance of both fabric layers and the waterproof membrane make these gloves highly versatile and will keep your hands dry even as you work up a sweat. The silicone gripper print has been designed to enhance your control on the handlebars and levers, while the thumb and forefinger are touchscreen compatible to allow you to answer calls and use your touchscreen bike computer without needing to remove the gloves. Designed in Denmark for Scandinavian winters, we have tested the Polaris 2 gloves to the extreme and trust they will offer you the deep winter comfort you need.
