Antifreeze Glove Liners

Guys I picked these up a couple of years ago from CycleGear and I've finally tried using them again this morning. Cold weather riding is coming up on us fast and I for one, welcome it That being said, I busted out the antifreeze wind protection glove liners... but they suck

My gauntlet gloves are size Large, which actually at the moment fit me a little too big. With that being said, I would have expected these liners to fit even easier inside my gloves. Well they don't. The liners leave you without a feel for the throttle, and I personally, was hardly able to keep my hand closed without it aching. They really didn't help much as far as the wind goes either. At first they were good in that department, then less than 10 minutes into the ride my hands started to freeze slowly and the aching on my right palm was nearing unbearable.

If you are looking for something to keep your hands warm, I wouldn't suggest these wind protectors/liners from Antifreeze that CycleGear sells. I would almost say it's best to just buy a cold gear pair of gloves.

Just my .2c guys.

they work well for me, but a little cold doesnt bother me. Its cuts wind chill and helps keep a little warmth in. Paired with a decent pair of gloves they work wonders, and you dont lose feeling like with bulky gloves.

I have those antifreeze gloves too and don't care for them. I was hoping to wear them under my leather gloves, but just bought some winter riding gloves instead.
It's not cold enough yet to get that gear out though.

Surgical gloves only reduce perspiration cooling effects. They are too thin to provide any significant insulation (though neoprene seemed to work better for me than the latex variety) and they are snug to the skin so you may get minor reduction of blood flow. I ran experiments with those last year, but then again it was at sub 40F so YMMV.

The simple equation for warm hands (or anything else) is wind blocking + plus air entrapment (read insulation) + plus blood flow (metabolic heat generation) = warm.

The alternative to this equation is electrical resistance heating.

Heat is lost by three forms of transfer: convection (wind), conduction (touching cold metal or skin surface perspiration evaporation) or radiation (yes, you glow in the dark with infrared cameras). Warm gloves will help with all three. Electrics will shift your skin energy balance to the positive, but won't, necessarily, help with any of the three.

Or just freeze. Which is not recommended as your physical reaction time and dexterity/finesse will be significantly degraded as your hand/finger temp approaches 32. At 32 well you are out of luck.

Other than proving you are a complete nerd, I couldn't find any suggestion in there on what gloves to buy to keep our hands warm.

i wonder if these would work.....says it lasts for 12 hours... just stick these things all over your body (they have em for different parts but since we're talking about hands) LOL

I am a complete nerd. What's your point?

Anyway I did recommend points to look for wind blocking and insulated, but since you asked...
Warm motorcycle gloves




In addition to being a nerd I am also an .

Bought these, there is a heating element running the entire orange area and battery packs that go strap onto both wrists...

They are as thin as the ski glove liners I wore last year and fit into my winter
gloves no problem.

We'll see how it goes when the temp gets below 40 at 5AM...

When I used to ride I had excelent luck with the Alpinestars drystar glove it was waterproof and pretty warm my 30min ride to work at 10pm and 45min ride home at 7-8am wasnt so bad hands still got cold towards the end but not unbearable! I was still able to use my controls pretty well except for enter pin code at gas pumps I had to take them off for that! they lasted me about 2yrs before my dog got a hold of them lol.

I do have a pair of Drystars so I'll give them a try when it gets colder. I bought a size too big really though, so they I lose a bit of feeling of the controls when I wear them, and I really don't like that :(
