Bar Mitts Cold Weather Mountain/Commuter Bike Neoprene Handlebar Mittens
About this deal
While it’s not a set of gloves, the pogie is a brilliant invention that can make your regular winter gloves suddenly handle virtually any winter weather. When we asked for recommendations from hearty winter cyclists, more than half immediately responded with ponies. If you do, make sure you’re wearing a liner layer between the handwarmer and your skin, otherwise you risk burning yourself! And put it on TOP of your hand, not under your palm. What about layering gloves?

Bar Mitts provide an alternative that promises to keep hands warm when they’re resting on the brake hoods, but still let riders easily grab food, water bottles, or other items. Similar warmers called pogies or Moose Mitts have been available for many years for flat handlebars, but the Bar Mitts are the first version that I’ve seen that are designed to fit road levers. These windproof, waterproof polyamide covers use a flexible section with an elasticated cuff to fit a variety of mirror configurations and a transparent area over the switches so you can see what you’re doing. Two types of these well-designed, high-quality muffs are available for both bikes with handguards (motocross, adventure etc.) and regular handguard-free motorbikes.The term comes from a trash fish, and these mittens were initially developed to use while kayaking. Pogies is just another way of saying gloves that are attached to something else. In this case, fat bike handlebars are what they connect to. Cycling Weekly's North American Editor, Anne-Marije Rook is old school. She holds a degree in journalism and started out as a newspaper reporter — in print! She can even be seen bringing a pen and notepad to the press conference. Most people will make sure always to use them if there is snow on the ground, because not only is the temperature low, but the moisture can cause problems as well.

Heated grips and heated gloves work great but aren’t nearly as cheap or straightforward as this old-school solution. Givi makes quality gear, and this no exception. A good choice for anyone with large hands and/or bulky gloves. During the course of my test, I used full-finger gloves inside my pogies that are normally only warm enough down into the 40s. However, with the pogies, I rode in temps down into the teens, including riding into a brutal headwind whipping down off the Sawatch mountain range. During the entirety of my test, my hands stayed warm and toasty inside the Mitts.We like how they attach to the bar end, meaning you can fit them when it gets cold and forget about them until it’s time to take them off. I actually like my Bar Mitts so much that I have started to keep them on my bike for any rides under 45 degrees (much to the chagrin of my friends, family, and dog). Now, I just throw on some summer-weight gloves—or no gloves at all—and enjoy my ride without fear of numb fingers, ever. (And make sure you invest in our chamois and embro set to stay protected from the cold.)
