I have a pair of BMW Pro Summer gloves, light weight, Gortex lined. Done a couple of rides through snow and only needed the heated grips on low.

Cheers

Aaron.

I've got the BMW Rallye2 gloves, as much feel as MX gloves but heaps warmer.
About half way between the ProSummer gloves and MX gloves.

BMW gear is pretty good for this type of riding.

Here's their range ....

I bought a set of DryRider winter gloves and they are horrible, they dont keep you very warm and they do not breathe at all even though they are supposed to be some super duper breathable stuff.
They always end up damp and clammy on the insides :snooty:
They are just not pleasant to wear at all, Id keep right away from them next time.

I mostly wear my BMW rally gloves with the thermal glove liners and they are good to about 8-10 degrees.

After all these suggestions I just realised that Kraj said something that is the biggest help of all ..... HEATED HANDGRIPS ....

I have them and they are so easy and cheap to fit, don't get in the way and can be turned on when it's cold and when it's hot just not turned on.

Warm gloves are still needed but with heated handgrips you can wear gloves that are a bit thinner and therefore have more feel.

It's good to have the confidence to know that if you don't end up with gloves that are warm enough the heated grips will do the last bit.

Any bike can have heated grips of course, and you can just have an on/off switch and don't bother with high/low and all that ... I don't !!

Still trying to find some better gloves for the winter riding around Guyra :frozen:

These are great, been using these for a while now and cant recommend them more highly.
No need for the bulk of winter gloves anymore, these are the same as your silk liners.
Just use these liners under thin gloves.

I use these under a light pair of wind proof (and a bit waterproof) gloves

This combo has been awesome even in subzero conditions :thumb:

Mate, these are all you need ...

These are from Moose Racing, but Giant Loop and MSR also make something similar ...

Cost bugger all ...

Completely deflect all cold air, so that pretty standard winter gloves are fine ...

They also deflect rain, and keep gloves dry in all but heavy falls ...

Dead easy (1/2 minute) to take on and off ...

And the best part, they just make any bike look just fantastic ...

After how cold my hands were the other week i got some Klim element short gloves last week. They would be only good for transport stages and i'll swap back to my motocross gloves i think. Tomorrow is their first run.
I'm not a team player..
