Go Pro Thermo.
In Mavic's clothing line, if a piece of gear comes with the venerable Ksyrium label, it means that warmth is priority number one. The Ksyrium Pro Thermo Gloves are designed for riding on seriously chilly days, and while they aren't the absolute warmest glove Mavic makes (that'd be the Ksyrium Pro Thermo+), they will keep your fingers warm on all but the most frigid winter rides. True to its function, the Ksyrium looks almost like a standard winter glove at first glance. The synthetic shell is laminated to a waterproof and breathable membrane and treated with a water-repellent DWR coating, and the gloves are loaded with lightweight Primaloft Sport insulation that stays warm even when it gets wet.
While the Thermo+ has a lobster-claw design to keep your fingers together for extra warmth,
the Thermo keeps your fingers separated for increased mobility. Mavic included a soft microfiber insert on the thumb for breathability
and glasses wiping, and a tough Clarino palm insert that adds durability without
sacrificing bar feel. Touchscreen-compatible inserts at the
fingertips let you snap a quick photo of the conditions, so you can show
everyone how hardcore you are. The long cuff seals up with a
hook-and-loop tab to keep heat in and moisture out, and reflective
highlights on the fingers help you stand out even when the weather is
less than ideal.
- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: XL
Have used these twice in 40 degree temp, w/strong winds. My hands were always warm, even slightly sweaty when I was finished. Will be able to use these into 30 degree temps with no problem.
These gloves are sleek, well-fitting, and plush without feeling bulky, keeping the wind out and the heat in. My fingers have remained comfortable in temps approaching single digits (F) and been a little too warm in the thirties. I'm so pleased with the Ksyrium gloves that my next jacket and bibs will likely be Mavic as well.

I tested this today and yesterday new england weather yesterday, It was 25f feels like 15 my hand froze but i made it home with all five fingers. It was a two hour ride My heart rate is around around 140 to 170 onthe average.... Today i tested it it was around 40f feels like 34 It was ok better than neoprene of casteli i bought and my hand were warm and toasty at the end of the ride of 25 miles. Ii strongly believe that this product can handle 32f easy.... but not 15. may hand warmers or inner liner would be neaccesary.
