My Klim Powerxross Gloves have been awesome for spring and late season riding. They’ve provided enough hand protection to keep out the biting winds, but don’t make my hands sweat in warmer temps by over-insulating .
The GORE-TEX waterproof liner works great for keeping out external moisture. The pores of the liner are about 20,000 times smaller than a drop of water. So when the spring snow gets heavy and wet, the moisture won’t penetrate the membrane of the liner.
The grip is superb as the fingers aren’t thick with insulation and I can really ‘feel’ the hand grips, throttle and brake lever providing a sensation of control as I ride.
I also like that these gloves don’t have a long gauntlet and I can pull my sleeve down over the wrist strap. This gives me a bit more ventilation up my sleeve depending on how warm a day I’m riding.
Make note that Klim Powerxross Gloves aren’t ideal for the extreme cold temperature days we’ve experienced this season and may not provide the protection you need from the harsh winds that come hand-in-hand with the dipping mercury.
Right now, my Klim Powerxross Gloves are my gloves of choice for warmer weather conditions and freeriding with my pals.
