As is the case for any cycling clothing, it’s important to choose the right bike gloves for the application. Full-finger cycling gloves are ideal as MTB gloves, while half-finger cycling gloves are better for road bikes and tours. The weather and season also play a role: special winter cycling gloves protect against the cold; other cycling gloves are waterproof or windproof. The information in this article will help you reach the right decision.

MTB gloves vs. bike racing gloves – what are the differences?

Before you make a purchase, you should consider which application and which conditions are relevant for your future bike gloves. Fingerless road bike gloves are a good choice for your next summer road tour. But if trails and terrain make the tour more challenging, full-finger cycling gloves are not only better in winter since they offer more protection and even more grip.

The fit is also critical. For instance, there are differences between women's and men's cycling gloves, which you should keep in mind. What’s more, children’s bike gloves are not only smaller but also varied in terms of fit. And their designs are naturally tailored to kids’ preferences.

Moreover, a range of special features are also available on the market for different glove models, such as comfortable cycling gloves with gel cushioning. Special freeride or downhill gloves can likewise feature integrated protectors for maximum safety.

Mountain bike gloves

Mountain bike gloves are primarily long-fingered or full-finger cycling gloves. But for MTB tours in summer or for marathon and cross-country (XC) bikes, lighter and better ventilated gloves are recommended. In general, the palm surface should have as few seams as possible and consist of grippy material. Here are some tips for choosing your MTB gloves:

  • Mountain bike gloves should not be a loose fit – after all, they are the point of direct contact between your hands and the bike.
  • There should be a little bit of space at the finger tips, otherwise uncomfortable pressure points may form between the fingers.
  • For gravity sports, it’s best to use bike gloves with integrated protectors and back-hand protection.
  • To go with your MTB gloves, you’ll also find the right MTB shoes at BIKE24.

Half-finger and road bike shoes

Half-finger gloves leave the last two finger phalanxes free. When riding a road bike with gloves, they should feel like a second skin. An elastic, well-ventilated top of the hand provides high comfort. If you also wear your cycling gloves in summer, good ventilation is important. The inner surface is key. No wrinkles should form, even when your hands are in a gripped position, otherwise pressure points may arise on the palm.

Size and fit are vital points to keep in mind. After all, only when the bike gloves fit well can you wear them comfortably for a long time while riding, without a feeling of numbness setting in or pressure points arising between the fingers. At BIKE24, you can try on your cycling gloves in the comfort of your own home and return them easily if they don’t fit perfectly.

Bike gloves for children

Kid's cycling gloves are particularly important as children's hands are very sensitive and easily prone to injury. The risk of falling off is also higher with kids, which is why they have all the more reason to wear bike gloves.

Since children have smaller hands, the palm of the cycling gloves should not have too much material or cushioning. Otherwise, it will be difficult to grip the handlebars firmly. Children should get new gloves as soon as the old ones have become too small. This way, they have the best protection possible.

Cycling gloves for winter and changeable weather

The key purpose that insulated bike gloves fulfil is protecting your hands from low temperatures, right down to the fingertips. For winter, cycling gloves are available for various temperature ranges: from models with light insulation thanks to wind-stopper materials through to variants with highly effective Primaloft insulation. You can also browse our online shop for suitable cycling jackets for all weathers and requirements.

Since the autumn and winter bring not only the cold but also many wet days, water-repellent or waterproof exterior materials are a good choice for cycling gloves. The inner lining of the bike gloves need to be able to absorb moisture, without allowing the cold and wet into the gloves.

Tips for correctly using your winter gloves:

  • Winter bike gloves should not be too tight so that thin liner gloves can also fit inside if necessary. Moreover, the air between the hand and glove serves as an insulating layer.
  • When weather is changeable, take an extra pair of thin or thick bike gloves that you can swap on.
  • On very cold days, use winter gloves with combined finger sections: this way, two or three fingers are kept together and less heat is lost.
  • In case of extreme temperatures, normal bike gloves for winter will no longer be enough. Instead, use mittens – but beware that the improved thermal regulation comes at a cost of less grip and dexterity (which may have an effect when switching gears, for example).
  • Complete your winter outfit with thermal arm, leg and knee sleeves.
