Windster 2 Windproof Winter Gloves



Lightweight and breathable gloves that offer cold weather insulation and a barrier against windchill. Exceptional breathability and moisture wicking fabrics mean these gloves are highly versatile and suited to a range of conditions.

Plus grippy palms and touchscreen-friendly index finger and thumb.

To help you get the most out of the Windster 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 Windster 2 gloves should have a snug fit to optimise their insulating properties
  • Preferences differ, but for most riders these gloves are perfect for cold conditions between 0 and 8°C
  • The Windster 2 gloves have a water-repellent treatment to cope with light drizzle, but for heavy rain look to our waterproof gloves instead
  • When removing these gloves pinch the fingertips of the gloves as you wriggle your fingers out. This will avoid the soft inner lining from separating from the windproof outer
  • 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
  • The Durable Water Repellent treatment (eco-friendly DWR finish) 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!

The Windster 2 Windproof Winter Gloves is made from 80% recycled material. An anti-bacterial and anti-odour treatment reduces the number of times the gloves need to be washed.

Our responsibility is clear and simple: the world should be a better place with GripGrab in it than it would be without.

We want to exist on this planet in a responsible way and to us, as a business, we must take responsibility for our social and environmental impact – and that starts with us setting the bar high.

As one of our valued customers, you might notice small changes in our products over the coming years. These are made to improve our impact (and our products), while we also remain very attentive to never compromising the GripGrab quality that you know and appreciate. We hope you will welcome these changes and support us on our journey.

GripGrab is a family business. Founded by brothers Kristian, Martin and Bjørn Krøyer in 2000. GripGrab is today run by CEO Martin Krøyer and CPO Kristian Krøyer.

GripGrab’s core philosophy is based on our experience as cyclists: creating products that protect against any conditions.

These products give riders the confidence to go further, push their limits and explore more.

Our mission is to create the products that enable all cyclists to explore and live out their individual cycling potential.


When we designed the Windster 2, we wanted to create a pair of gloves that was lightweight and breathable but offered cold weather insulation and windchill protection. These two-layer gloves have a soft fleece lining and a windproof outer material; between the two material layers you trap an insulating layer of air to insulate your hands against the cold.

The exceptional breathability and moisture wicking performance of both fabric layers makes these gloves highly versatile, while the silicone gripper print has been designed to enhance your control on the handlebars and levers. The index finger and thumb are touchscreen friendly to allow use of your phone and bike computer without removing the gloves.

The Windster 2 gloves are an evolution of the original Windster, using more sustainable and higher performance fabrics, as well as receiving an updated graphical look.

A favourite winter cycling choice amongst our GripGrab team, the Windster will keep you riding through the cold months of the year.
