Truly amazing cold weather gloves. They combine complete wind blocking with excellent heat retention. The exterior material is sleek and tightly woven so the wind goes right past them without sinking in. The insulation is thin and very warm. The thinness of the insulation is a good thing in that it does not bunch up and make the gloves clumsy. As a matter of fact, the fingers of the gloves are so well articulated that shifting is made easy, even on road bikes that have a combined shift lever/braking system. The lobsters are constructed so well that you don't lose anything from your bike handling or road feel.

There is an elastic wristband to help retain heat as well as a cinchable draw cord at the end of the cuff. The cuff extends out approximately 3 inches from the wrist of the gloves to cover the gap between the gloves and the jacket sleeve.

There is a thin layer of a tough rubbery coating on the palms which has a textured surface. This layer helps to keep a solid grip of the handlebars. This material is present on the fingers as well.

Cannondale designed these gloves with the index and middle fingers articulated individually and the ring and pinkie fingers together. Which lends to good dexterity yet does not sacrifice warmth.

All the seams of the lobsters are tight and solidly sewn. These gloves feel durable and are comfortable. The look of the gloves is simple and functional.

So far, I have ridden these gloves down to 19 degrees fahrenheit without noticing the cold.

I have ridden with a set of Cannondale five finger gloves (with inserts) for several winters now and I have been very happy with them. Without the inserts I tend to wear my fingerless padded gloves inside the shells, but with he inserts I found the gloves needed no additional padding and I have been very happy with the warmth factor. When Dan showed me the "Lobster Gloves" which Cannondale sent for us to try out, initially I was skeptical. These gloves are made of a single layer of fairly thin material, so I was concerned both for the warmth factor and comfort. I needn't have been!

OK what the heck are we talking about calling them lobster gloves? Well, we are responding to the shape of these "four finger gloves" which resemble (albeit loosely) lobster claws. This comes from the fact that the pinkie and the fourth finger are kept in the same glove finger. This is a great idea in terms of warmth and it does not hamper finger agility in any significant way. I found the gloves to be very comfortable, and they transmitted feeling nicely so subtle brake control and shifting were unaffected. Picking up change off a contertop would have been a challenge, but basic bike necessary actions were just fine.

The day we tested these gloves it was not extremely cold. The temp was in the high 40's, I would guess. We were rained upon significantly and that generally does tend to make things a lot colder but I must admit, my hands got neither cold nor wet. So I would have to say the gloves worked just fine. The surprising part is that my hands did not fall asleep either. Usually unless I wear padded gloves after about 20 minutes of riding, I have lost most feeling in my hands. This is why I wear padded gloves even under the other Cannondale gloves, but these Lobsters avoided that problem altogether! They're nice gloves! A Bit bulky, but Nice!

Color 5
Warmth 8
Fit 7 (they were large for me)
Comfort 9
Reflective striping 10

I would give them a weighted over all nine since the only thing that really matters is the comfort!

The temperature wasn't that cold the day I rode with these gloves on and I had commented to the other riders that "I wasn't impressed by them". While my fingers weren't freezing I was feeling the chill. I assumed that if the temperature were much colder I wouldn't like the gloves. The other 2 riders Dan and Gary responded that their fingers were warm.

Usually I wear a combination of gloves on cold rides. If the temperature is in the 40's, I wear padded gloves and a mitten that is a thin material but blocks the wind. If colder, I add another pair of cold weather gloves over the padded gloves. This combination has served me well over the years. As you might have guessed wearing three pairs of gloves is a bit bulky, and gets a little uncomfortable as the ride progresses. Also there have been occasions on long rides that my fingers start out warm when I leave the house then start to get cold as the miles add up.

The opposite effect happened with the Cannondale gloves. As our ride progressed my fingers actually warmed up. They are a little bulky, but not as bulky as my aforementioned 3 glove combination. I believe that the initial chill that I felt is probably the result of the wrong size glove for my hands. These gloves have an elastic wristband. If properly fitted it should keep cold air from seeping into the glove. The elastic is too big for my wrist. So there are gaps for cold air to seep through. However as my body warmed up during the ride this was insignificant.

I'll probably wear these gloves on my cold rides now. As the temperature drops I'll see if the fit problem I mentioned above is still a problem.
