    A new take on a winter cycling glove, the Alpha borrows know-how from our Alpha System of Jacket + mid-layer which was inspired by high alpine mountaineering. The concept combines a our DVStretch Softshell outer layer for wind/water protection with Polartec's Alpha Direct inside for its high warmth-to-weight insulating qualities, in a newly developed 3D pattern. The result is our warmest glove, capable of temps below freezing, while maintaining a light low-bulk feel with unmatched dexterity.

Alpha Glove

I bought the zero gloves previously but they weren’t warm enough in v cold weather. I bought these to cover the colder days. I actually don’t notice a difference between the gloves . I have been out in 1-3 degrees and still have v cold fingers. On the positive side these gloves don’t get sweaty, wash v well, are light to wear and look good but just don’t quite do the temperature suggested by brand.

Warm and Fuzzy

Right off the bat I was almost shocked at how much mobility I have with these gloves - I usually wear thick goretex gloves in winter that give me the dexterity of an astronaut. Not with these! My fingers move freely and independently of each other I was between a size XS and S - I went with S as my hands are long and narrow and I didn’t want them to feel like they were butting up against the tips. I’m glad I did - they’re still a snug fit. Beware the inner liner moving around independently of the outer liner. I’ve been using these in 0 - 10 degree Celsius dry weather and my hands are pretty much happy the entire time. Closer to 10 degrees is a teensy bit warm but I’m a cold person (literally not figuratively) and I’m used to my fingers being frosty. Barring one very cold day, my hands have been warm. Excellent wind breaking. I’m impressed.

Warm dependable gloves

Warm at freezing temperatures, tips a little cold. Fairly water resistant, tips again get wet first after a while. No grip, might bother people who go off the smooth. Bit snug on fingers, size wise for me I went up and my thumbs touches end but fingers have space. The touch screen isn’t very sensitive, struggles on Garmin 830, which other gloves haven’t.

Fits like a Turnschuh*

*In German, when something fits like a Turnschuh it is the highest compliment for comfort and fit, it's not tight, it's not loose, you can spend days and nights in it and it does exactly what it needs. So these Alpha Gloves fit perfectly (using the size guide for finding the right size) and both on VERY cold rides (-5/-10°C) and normal cold winter rides, my fingers kept warm and I never lost the feeling for a good grip on my handlebar.
