Even hardened bikers accustomed to riding through cold weather tend to avoid it where possible. But if you’re planning on heading out all year round, or need something for essential short trips when it’s chilly, then you might want to check our the new Weise Nomad winter motorcycle gloves.
They’re a cost-effective way to keep your hands warm and dry, with a Hipora membrane to combat wind-chill and rain, but without making your palms and digits clammy. And you also get a two-layer storm cuff with an elasticated inner, and a hook-and-eye-secured outer layer to stop water trickling down your arm and wrists.
Typical winter motorcycle kit isn’t always the most dynamically designed, but the Weise Nomad winter motorcycle gloves do have 3M Scotchlite piping on the outside to help your visibility in dark conditions. And while they may not look particularly exciting, you do get full grain leather and textile consruction with TPU knuckle armour for protection.
Even nipping out for a quick trip can be painful in cold weather if you’re not kitted out properly. And if you’re distracted by being uncomfortable or chilly, it’s much harder to pay attention and spot hazards. In our limited experience of Weise kit, it tends to last a while, so it’s perfect for those practical, no-nonsense investments in riding gear. If you want to opt for more features, then alternatives in the Weise range include the Montana 150 gloves for £99.99.
So it’s good that the Nomad gloves are pretty affordable at £59.99 in sizes S-3XL for men, or XS-XL for women. Online shops selling Weise products include Halfords, or you can find your local retailer on this map.
