Ideally a thermal glove will be perfect for just about everyone, but it can be hard to know what the right level of thermal warmth is best for you. Specialized offers the Softshell Thermal Glove for mid-range, shoulder season conditions or cool summer mornings. Lighter weight softshell layered fabrics that offer wind resistance, a one-way breathable membrane, and a light thermal layer generally offer the right protection level for cycling from 45-60°, but that range could vary by individual. Other factors can include how tight the wrist cuff is, as well as how tightly you regularly grasp the bar. Ideally you don't want a wrist cuff or glove that is too tight or restrictive, as those aspects can impact blood flow down into your fingers. By not being able to relax your hands some on the bar while still having proper control, you can also restrict blood flow, which means you get colder faster in moderate temps while flying along the trail.

With a 3-layer softshell fabric system as described above, along with a wrist cuff that is adjustable and designed to be flexible, an AX Suede palm with an outstanding level of inherent grip that is accentuated by a considerable application of silicone grip zones, the Specialized's Softshell Thermal Glove can be a great option for most cyclists, and you can see how the fabric and features allow you to address the challenges that can limit a glove's effectiveness. No glove can do it all for every individual, but if you find the right fit and construction, while learning to relax your hands a little and let the tacky surfaces do their work, this is a glove that can perform with you and keep you comfortable in temperatures that require shoulder season clothing overall. With the added benefit of touch screen compatibility, you can also be warm while accessing your messages while you wait for your companions at the top of the daily climb.
