    Our solution to cold hands. A breathable, water-repelling softshell combines with Polartec® Alpha® insulation and Italian Super Roubaix cuffs to provide extremely warm, yet low bulk, protection against the very worst that winter can throw at you.

    We know what it’s like to have winter spins become a misery due to freezing fingers. If it’s not the cold interfering with your ability to brake or shift gears, it’s the bulky gloves promising to protect you from it. Enter the Monkey Paw Alpha® Gloves. Designed to bring winter smiles, we’ve selected three incredible fabrics to achieve the highest dexterity-to-warmth ratio down to below freezing temperatures.

    The foundation of the glove is Polartec’s Alpha, a highly advanced insulation specifically tailored to active use. Far warmer than its weight and thickness suggest, the lofted fibres provide superb breathability to ensure dry, warm hands during both intense efforts and recovering periods. It’s also produced from 100% Recycled P.E.T. Plastic.

    A windproof, water-resistant soft-shell forms the outer layer, treated with DWR for additional wet weather protection. Low-profile Italian Super Roubaix cuffs integrate with jacket sleeves to keep out the wind and eliminate skin exposure, without the addition of extra bulk or kit destroying velcro.

    The palm is printed with a durable silicon echoing the natural lines and contours of the hand, supplying grip and control in all conditions. Both the thumb and index finger tips are sewn with conductive material so you never have to remove your gloves to capture those views.

    The Monkey Paw is here to make four winter wishes come true. Warm, dry hands in a lean, lightweight package.

    - Softshell outer, wind-proof and water-resistant
    - DWR treatment for wet weather protection
    - Polartec® Alpha® active insulation
    - Super Roubaix cuffs for close, comfortable fit
    - Low-profile cuff integrates with jackets
    - Breathable and moisture wicking
    - Silicon printed palm and fingers for super sticky ape-like grip
    - Touch screen compatible thumb and index
    - No jersey destroying velcro
    - Finished with black-on-black silicone monkey fur pattern and Victory Chimp logos
    - Machine washable
    - Recommended Temps: -5°C to 10°C (23-50°F)

    Wash cool. Line dry. Ride Safe. Go Ape.

    Refer to our size guide below to measure up correctly. Use a soft tape measure or similar to measure the circumference of your hand at its widest point, just below the knuckles, not including the thumb.

    About Polartec® Alpha®Active Insulation
    Alpha® was originally invented for the U.S. special forces. They required a superior insulation system for extreme temperature variations and the start-stop conditions of combat. Alpha® active insulation was engineered for consistent warmth, while allowing greater breathability during activity. This military use case also makes it perfect for cycling in the cold, when you want to avoid overheating on climbs while staying warm during descents and recovery.

    This patented, adaptive quality is made possible through Alpha’s lofted fibers connected to a solid mesh core. The fleecy element traps warm air, providing the insulation, while the mesh keeps the insulation in place. And since Polartec® Alpha® is inherently hydrophobic, it resists all moisture and dries incredibly fast.

    On top of all this, it’s got great eco credentials as well, as it’s made from 100% recycled PET. That’s drinks bottles to you and me. Polartec repurposes 95 percent of its remnants from making its fabrics into other, lower value, products like flooring, mats and insulation. It’s bluesign and Oeko-Tex certified.

    A gift my husband loves

    My husband has tried many cycling gloves but claims these are the warmest for winter he has ever had. He also loves the palm print design. Many thanks. Would definitely recommend.

    comfortable and warm

    Trevor Stein (Thunder Bay, CA)
    nearly Paw-ferct.

    These gloves have been awesome, water resistant, windproof and warm without getting too sweaty. Easy to get on & off if hands are a bit warm without pulling the finger insulation out which is not the case for many gloves that offer this kind of warmth. I'd only like to see a snot wipe on the thumb or top of the thumb/pointer finger area (thumb pit?). Those little rubber nibs are tough on the nose. Love the looks as well.

    warm hands

    gloves do why I have purchased them, keep my hands warm and comfortable during rides in colder weather
    they don't feel stiff but are very convenient and hands are handy to shift gear and breaks
