We wanted to include a cyclocross glove in the mix to show the differences required for this demanding sport. The $50 Cw 6.0 Cross Gloves are for temps between 41 and 54 degrees Fahrenheit, according to Canadian manufacturer Castelli, and feature extensive silicone grips on the palm for dismounting and carrying the bike during competition. The gloves have a high degree of breathability from fine microfiber material in the palm and vents in the fingers to prevent clamminess during intense bouts of effort. The neoprene on the back of the hand stays warm even when covered in cold, wet mud.
