StarStarStarStarStar Bar Mitts Great for Winter Riding

by
Ownership: a few months
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

Big. Warm. With cuffs on they are good to below 0 F.
You can ride with half-gloves down to below 20 F and preserve feel. I wear a little longer glove but still have open fingertips when it's colder.
You can store stuff in them, like a phone or an energy bar.

I have these on a fatbike optimized for snow riding and LOVE them. They are THE key to making winter riding enjoyable.

Cons

They are so big they slow you down into the wind. In a stiff crosswind, they affect stability and make your steering response slower. I am not exaggerating, but if I wanted to be faster I'd be on a different bike!

Other Thoughts

I would buy again, for sure.

Pros

Great fit on the handlebars, great for blocking cold and wet, fairly sleek design without too much wind-catching.

Cons

Can be tricky to move well-mittened hands in and out of the mitts, especially while biking.

Bar Mitts

"Bar Mitts evolved from many years of hang gliding and cold winter bicycle rides. During the cold months, I used my hang gliding mitts on top of my bicycle handle bars. Hang gliding mitts are used on a straight steering control bar. As one can imagine, not being on the shifter and brake levers had its downfalls especially when it came to descents and emergency braking. I designed various Bar Mitts prototypes that enclosed the shifter and brake levers. I am so pleased that the final product is now available for sale. We hope you enjoy Bar Mitts and many warm rides."
