Can also recommend Grip Grab, which is a Danish brand, made for Danish conditions. If anyone wants some - shout up.



Just looked these up and I think the Nordic ones would be just the ticket for winter rides, Found Bike24 sells them.

Pearl Izumi Lobsters worked a treat last winter. -10C and not even a tingle of frosty digits.
Couldn't say the same for me tootsies though... :cry: :)

Aldi winter gloves - greta for a fiver. Mine from last year are just about still going (worn every day except when in the wash during the winter). Will be replacing them soon with another pair.
