Lobster-claw designs are common for cycling gloves; they give more dexterity than a mitten, but keep the fingers close for warmth. This Milan, Italy, cycling outfitter uses advanced materials in its claw-shaped $55 LG Super Shield Gloves to provide warmth and breathability while minimizing bulk. The lining is made from 3M Drytex and Thinsulate. The exterior is made from a waterproof, breathable membrane to let sweat pass, but maintain impermeability to the elements. In terms of temperature ranges, Garneau stamps this one “Extreme +.”
