2. What temps? Wind, rain or snow encountered? I like windproof fleece gloves down to 30 F or so. Pogies for lower than that. This is for normal US fahrenheit temps, not some crazy 'freakin celsius temps in Canada. Thats crazy talk.

The gloves must handle - 10 degrees Celsius below zero.

4. I don't ride in celsius temps, I mentioned that.

5. Is -10° C below zero actually 10° above zero?

6. ^^^ that's what I was thinking. There aint no -10 below zero...no, wait...

It’s 14*F.

The difference between freezing and boiling is 100*C and 180*F, so each *C is 1.8*F. I find that a lot easier to remember than the conversation formula.

8. Pogies and normal gloves.

9. Pogies 100%. I use the bar mits ones. They work and are reasonably priced. You can wear a normal mtb glove, a lightly insulated glove or a thick glove (probably unnecessary) underneath. I wear normal gloves to keep my dexterity.

I saw on GMBN that you can make your gloves warmer by wearing latex gloves in combination with your riding gloves. Though you will likely get sweaty hands. Which I would think is not good when you ride at that temperature.

Interesting that Picard is worried about keeping his hands warm considering that he rides naked.

The formula is C x 1.8 + 32 = F
And 212 - 32 = 180. In other words, there are 180*F between the freezing and boiling points of water.

12. gloves for skiing/snowboarding, tons of options, better quality for less money

Really terrible solution in my experience, lose so much dexterity it's hard to control the bike in any kind of challenging terrain. I fail to see how anyone's hands won't sweat badly doing this too. Although you "grip" a bar, kind of, in both sports, the similarities end there, with your fingers operating things in mountain biking.

14. I wear klim inversion snowmobile gloves. They arnt insulated, just windproof.

15. Winter mtb gloves with merino wool liners underneath. Merino wool will help keep your hands stay warm even if they get a bit damp.

16. I have a pair of bontranger lobster gloves, and while they are warm, they are too warm, my hands sweat a lot and the become hard to get off.

I p refresh to,use a pair of ponies with a fall type glove.

17. Pogies and a lightly insulated pair of gloves has worked well for me riding in temps down to zero degrees fahrenheit. Keeping my face warm is harder than my hands.

18. I find winter mittens to be comfy and warmer than gloves.

19. YES - 1st choice is Them moose mitts / Bar mitts or pogies + thin gloves.

If not, wind proof gloves , maybe neoprene like the diver suit material I think.

Here's a link to some info and the best part, - it's all priced in Celsius !

20. The Endura neoprene jobs are supremely warm...almost too warm!
