Many of us in the Competitive office have a tradition that, wherever we are, we get out for a ride on Thanksgiving morning. For some, this is the final ride until spring. Those of us who keep riding into the teens during winter have one thing in common: Giordana's SottoZero 5 Finger Waterproof Winter Gloves. After November, the ol' knit gloves just don't cut it, and the weather quickly deteriorates until you need fabric like the SottoZero Gloves' WindTex shell, which is no turkey when it comes to blocking wind and repelling water. The gloves are stuffed with a healthy serving of fleece, which insulates and wicks moisture away from your skin. Both materials stretch and breathe well, too, so your hands will be as dry as your aunt's turkey and as warm as her green bean casserole. The gloves are finished off with gel padded synthetic micro suede palms, which also incorporate silicone gripper detailing so your grip on the bars stays true, even in the kind of crummy conditions where you'll really want that WindTexfleece sandwich. A hook and loop cuff maintains a virtually impenetrable seal against the elements. The Giordana SottoZero 5 Finger Waterproof Winter Gloves are available in four sizes ranging from Small to X Large in the color Black.
