Just out of curiosity, I wanted to find out what $169 will get you in the realm of cycling gloves. The fuguGloves_S7 have some pretty sophisticated tech for low temps—specifically between 32 and 46 degrees, according to the Swiss manufacturer Assos. When the gloves get cold, a nylon “smart” fabric in the exterior closes its pores; when it gets hot, it opens them up to allow more breathability. Inside, there’s a thick layer of fleece for insulation and moisture wicking. Overall, the gloves employ six different materials to guarantee dry, toasty digits.
