• Waterproof & windproof • 70gms Thinsulate for extra Winter warmth • 2x2 mitten-style • Individual finger channels for control • Grippy Nappa leather palm • Drawstring cuff to combat drafts • Motorrad Magazine Test Winner
Praised for its all-round weather protection, comfort and fit, the Probiker Cool Breaker II winter gloves are perfect for scooter riders and motorcyclists with an upright riding position. This is the latest, upgraded version and like its predecessors it comes out top in comparative tests. The gloves partition fingers together in a mitten style which means greater retention of your body's own warmth. The 70gms Thinsulate insulation then protects you effectively against wind-chill (most winter gloves only give you 40gms insulation!). Because it is Thinsulate, it isn't bulky either. Breathable, wind and waterproof, this winter glove is ready for the elements!
