GORE Bike Wear Universal Undergloves Review

Gore Bike Wear Universal Undergloves ReviewThe GORE Bike Wear Universal Undergloves give you the option to extend the lower limit of your regular winter gloves by a 5-10 degrees, but at a price. Made from “thermo-stretch functional fabric” as stated in the product description, these under gloves offer an extra layer of insulation that helps in keeping the cold away from your hands and the warmth trapped inside a bit more effectively.

Gore Bike Wear Universal Undergloves ReviewI don’t see much point in the reflective logo printed on the top of the under glove, but I think it is a nice touch. Apart from that the whole glove is simply black.

Gore Bike Wear Universal Undergloves ReviewThe fit is tight, but not as tight as I would like it to be. I have the GORE Bike Wear ALP-X 2.0 WINDSTOPPER Gloves in size M and I got the undergloves in size M too. Although my gloves were pretty tight, I managed to put them on with the undergloves on may hand. The end result was a more tight fitting combination that felt somehow restraining when I was trying to bend my palm (like wearing shoes with very thick socks).

Gore Bike Wear Universal Undergloves ReviewMy only complaint was that the seams on the finger tips were getting pushed under my fingernails. I think that a seamless version of these undergloves will be much more comfortable to wear, but unfortunately they don’t make it.

Gore Bike Wear Universal Undergloves ReviewThe brushed inside is made from a nylon-elastane blend and does its job well in insulating you and wicking the moisture away from your skin.

Gore Bike Wear Universal Undergloves ReviewHere is the glove from the inside. A lot of leftover material around the seams and to be honest this bugs me a bit more than it should. Maybe I will get used to it overtime.

Gore Bike Wear Universal Undergloves ReviewTo summarize this review, I must say that the Gore Bike Wear Universal Undergloves are a nice addition to my winter gear, they are light, warm and easy to put on at any time of the ride.

Gore Bike Wear Universal Undergloves ReviewThe only thing I am concerned with is, that if I use them a few more times I will stretch my gloves quite a bit from the added bulk and they will become loose around the fingers. I think I will be better off buying another heavy weight winter gloves when temperatures drop below 0┬░C.

Pros: Warm, lightweight

Cons: Pricy (around 20 EUR), seams not executed that well
