just came back from a 45 min ride below 40 degrees and honestly its not that bad at all. Just gotta wear a lot of layers.
The only problem is my hands! I even wore my north face gloves under my alpinestars gloves. But honestly, after ten mins it really didn't help at all. My hands started hurting so much I couldn't even grab the brakes tightly lol.
I've been told I could wear latex gloves underneath the riding gloves and this would help? and recommendation on latex gloves? or any other ideas, other than heated gloves?
are the tourmaster gloves usually good for cold weather riding?
or should I try wearing my astar gloves under my snowboarding glove? lol
They are a cold weather glove, thicker than my Dainese VR46 Sport Gloves. They are insulated to help in the cold.
Coldest I rode in was ~35*F and they worked well for about 15-20 minutes, then my hands started feeling the weather, but that was with no other insulation or latex gloves..etc. Again though, with raynauds in my fingers, even typing on my PC right now my hands are cold.
So honestly, I think a cold-weather specific glove should do the trick!

Latex helps to a point. If your hands start to sweat or get wet in anyway, though, it's all over and your hands get colder than if you didn't wear latex at all. I'd wear them for shorter rides, but not regularly.
"Multiple track days are needed every 12 month period to keep performance of the nut between bars and seat within an acceptable range. Failure to do so could result in a loss of talent in the nut. Crashing, "squidding it up" and illusions of awesomeness could occur.".
heated gloves seems like the only solution....sounds weird but one thing that i found out that helps is putting lotion on your hands a few minutes before you head out..rode out in the cold(about 35) and when i got done with my commute my hands were cracked and bloody cus of the cold(gp tech do not keep you hands warm lol) put lotion on before my next ride and it didnt happen..hands got a little cold but nothing bad like before...idk maybe this just works for me
i have heated gloves now so f you winter
