7 of the Best Finger Warming MTB Gloves

There's nothing worse than numb fingers, so keep them warm on the trails this winter

Although riding in the winter can be incredibly fun. Crunching leaves, cracking ice and super crisp air stinging your lungs, the worst part of it is getting cold numb hands.

Once your hands go, it can be game over for the ride. Without the feeling in your fingers, you can run the risk of having slower reaction times, and being unable to really grip those brakes in case of an emergency.

Fortunately for us, there are plenty of warm and cosy hand jackets designed specifically for mountain bikers.
