Mountain Bar Mitts keep your fingers toasty on bike rides
You have quite likely heard the phrase, “there’s nothing like riding with the wind on your face” before. Well that’s great and all for the summer, but the same can be said of the winter; however, the connotation is a quite a bit different. The cold air bites at you as if a thousand tiny gnomes felt like taking an ice pick to your face. While you can cover up with a scarf and hat, you have to be a bit more careful with your choice of gloves. If it’s not made of a material with good grip, you won’t be able to hold on to the handle bars.
Even with a proper pair of cycling gloves, you’re still going to have to deal with frozen phalanges within about 20 minutes. If you want to protect your hands from undue discomfort, then the Mountain Bar Mitts might be of use. These are Neoprene coverings for your bicycle handlebars for when the weather is a bit chillier. There is nylon laminate on both sides, and a variety of sizes for those who have small or large paws.
These are very easy to put on and remove depending on what your needs are as it’s all just a stretchy covering. If you need bulkier gloves, you’ll likely want to go for a larger size. There were a few comments that you’ll only need a thin pair of gloves for this to block out the bite of cold wind, but you’ll likely want to read around a bit to make sure you’ve got the size you need. These will cost you around $53, and would be useful for winter rides (when the road is suitable enough for bicycles).
