We all know that when it comes to fallwinter cycling gloves, lobster claw designs are the warmest because they retain more body heat. But some of us simply can't get used to the feel. If this sounds like you, the Louis Garneau LG Shield Gloves are a wise choice. Of Garneau's five finger gloves, they're the warmest, and offer protection from wind, rain, sleet, and snow. For a manufacturer, insulating cycling gloves properly requires maximizing warmth while minimizing bulk. The LG Shield Gloves accomplish this feat by combining a Drytex 3M lining with varying thicknesses of Thinsulate interlining. Naturally, there's thicker insulation around the fingers and less at the palm. Because that insulation isn't worth much when saturated, the exterior of the gloves is constructed of Garneau's Breathable Twillwave with a fully waterproof and breathable Hipora membrane. Gloves can become saturated from the inside, too that's why Garneau incorporated their Ergo Air concept into these. Strategic ventilation at the palm ensures that sweat has an opportunity to evaporate. An Amara palm with strategically placed foam padding gives you superior grip and relief from chatter induced numbness. Reflective piping provides some added visibility. The Garneau LG Shield Gloves come in sizes Small through XX Large and in Black.
