A new take on a winter cycling glove. The Alpha borrows know-how from our advanced Alpha System of jacket + mid-layer and incorporates that concept into an extremely warm yet lightweight glove. Inspired by high alpine mountaineering, the concept combines our DVStretch Softshell outer layer for wind/water protection with Polartec's Alpha Direct inside for its high warmth-to-weight insulating qualities, in a newly developed 3D pattern. The result is our warmest glove, capable of temps below freezing while maintaining a light low-bulk feel with unmatched dexterity.

Very good

These gloves fit better than any others I own, and I own a bunch. They're quite warm and breathe well. For me they're good into the upper 30's, with very good tactility. So they've earned their spot in my gloves drawer. The main downside is the shells are not sufficiently windproof for really cold days (close to freezing). Also, they're expensive, delicate, and lack grippiness.

Favorite cold weather gloves

My new favorite “go to” winter glove. I was so happy with the warmth and decreased bulkiness on a recent ride, that I went home and ordered two more pairs in the color I didn’t have.

Work really well in German winter

Excellent experience. Did not get cold hands in 0 Celsius weather and was able to grip handle bars firmly whole time. Good stuff

Alpha glove

I love everything Velocio, but the Alpha Glove while a great idea is poorly executed. It is built on the same pattern as the Zero glove, but while the Zero glove is roomy, the alpha glove is tight because the designers didn't take into account the alpha material. Being tight around teh fingers, even when sizing up equates to much less warmth than advertised. The Alpha gloves are great from say 40F to 45F but below 40F they provide little protection against the elements (i.e. tips of fingers are cold. Above 45 they become a touch too hot. In addition, as noted, when one takes them off, even when careful, the alpha material, especially the thumb bunches up and they are difficult to get back on. I think the glove needs a redesign with a shell and a free floating generous alpha liner. and to complete the system for temperatures below 40F, Velocio need to consider a windproof/waterproof lobster shell to put on top of the alpha glove to provide an extra layer of air.
