The new Gore Bike Wear Universal Windstopper Gloves utilize a Gore-Tex membrane that's waterproof, windproof, breathable, and insulates. These are quite a lot of tasks to do at once, so maybe that's why it named them Universal as in accepted of being an awesome glove. More likely, it's because the gloves work so well in a variety of weather conditions and you can use them for road and mountain biking. Warm, dry hands shouldn't be a luxury. With the right gloves you can have this on every ride.
Fabrics are great but a glove must well, fit like a glove, if it's to perform well. Gore reinforces the area between the thumb and forefinger resisting abrasion and improving grip. Silicone coated fingers offer superior feel on the controls and the elastic cuff allows for easy on and off and limits the amount of heat that can escape. Gore adds foam padding to the palm of the gloves in order to absorb vibration. Improving your visibility to motorists in low-light conditions, are the reflective print on the fingers and logo.
The Gore Bike Wear Universal Windstopper Gloves are available in Black and Neon Yellow/Black and in six sizes from Small to XXX-Large.

Great Spring or Fall Gloves
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
These are great for spring or fall riding.. or even early summer morning rides when the temps are a little cooler and when it's a bit windy outside. I would not recommend wearing these in the winter. They're not insulated and don't have a fleece lining. I didn't give these full marks because the rubber on the palms has started to peel after 3 rides which is annoying but whatever I'll survive. I do recommend if you want a very simple lightweight, long-fingered glove for the above seasons as mentioned. Or if you don't get too cold or too hot or just want a pair of great gloves. Grab them!
