I ride every morning to work about 30-45 minute at 60 mph with frequent stops. At 40F, my hands stay fairly warm. Between 30F & 35F my fingers are a little numb at the end of my ride. At 25F, the last five minutes is somewhat painful for my hands and it takes a couple minutes after the ride to regain full use of my fingers. After that ride though, the 30F rides are much easier. Keep them inside before your ride and you can get a couple more minutes of comfort from them. Throw them in the dryer for 5 minutes and you should get a couple more.
4/3/13 Update: I rode to work this morning in 45 degree weather without the glove liners, and my hands were cold when I arrived. Since my ride is only about 10 miles, I would think they should have been warmer upon arrival. So, downgrading my rating from 5 to 4 stars.
So good for the price, but there's a really narrow temperature band where they're useful.
An interesting comparison, I bought a pair of $130 gloves that have removable sleeves to block wind/rain with the idea they would do better in cold. Even with these my fingers still get pretty chilly in the lower to mid 30's. That's a testament to the not-too-badness of the Xelments
I've ordered a pair of heated glove liners and hopefully that will take the edge off. If so then these are great gloves... with heated liners. If not then I'll be in the market for a better solution.
** UPDATE **
I purchased a pair of Powerlet Rapid Fire Glove Liners to go along with these Xelement winter gloves. The combination of Xelement winter gloves and Powerlet liners is awesome! I've had several mornings now riding in the low 30's and I am still amazed how warm my hands are, even at highway speed. Anyone a little disappointed in the insulation of these gloves should definitely give the Powerlet liners a try.
Now, in the interest of fairness, I suffered a frostbite injury to my hands in Afghanistan, so my hands cannot take the cold like they used to. Still, I also purchased a pair of Harley-Davidson hybrid gloves, and even without the heating element, I find them warmer, in large part because they are softer and do not have any Kevlar.
Ride free, everyday water doesn't fall from the sky. :)
