Glacier Glove Cyclocross Glove >> $40

Waterproof gloves are non-negotiable for wet and freezing races, but Glacier Glove developed the Cyclocross Glove specifically for the type of intensity and challenging temperature regulation typical of cyclocross.

The back of the hand is waterproof and protects from the elements, but the palm is breathable, preventing the slippery, sweaty hands typical of racing in Neoprene gloves. It prevents your hands from freezing, but also keeps them from overheating, a delicate challenge.
