Extreme All Weather Gloves

12 reviews
Jet Black

Maximum protection for cycling in nasty conditions. Waterproof liner repels moisture, insulation repels cold and lobster claw design allows your fingers to keep each other warm while maintaining dexterity to hang onto handlebars and brake levers.

  • Water resistant, windproof, breathable and insulated.
  • SealSkinz® ADD waterproof liner with anti-slip for enhanced dexterity.
  • Climashield® insulation for added warmth.
  • Neoprene cuff with velcro tab seals at wrists.
  • Lobster claw style for warmth and cycling dexterity.
  • Pressure point gel padding.
  • Reflective panel for safety at night.
  • Tight gloves mean cold hands - if in doubt choose up a size.
  • Made by SealSkinz in China.
  • Weight: 180 grams.
+How waterproof are these gloves?
  • The fabric is completely waterproof, but if you are riding in persistent and/or heavy rain - water will eventually run down your arms and sneak into your gloves.
  • Also with extended exercise in warmish conditions you are likely to overload the breathable membrane and get sweaty/damp hands.
  • So not bulletproof, but in those conditions they will still keep your hands drier than standard gloves.

  • All Ground Effect clothing enjoys a warm 40ºC machine wash. Try to avoid cold-water detergents and those with bleach, 'oxygen whitener' or fabric softener.
    • The cold-water varieties have little enzymes that are super-charged to brave the cold but can damage technical fabrics and cause skin irritation.
    • Bleach rots natural fibres like merino, strips the dye, attacks laminates of waterproof fabrics and can also cause skin irritation.
    • Sodium Percarbonate (the main ingredient in oxygen whitener) can make colours run.
    • Fabric softener and stuff containing it like wool wash destroys the water repellent finish on waterproof and water resistant fabrics, and can cause colours to run.
  • As a rule of thumb, a product that is easy on the planet is also easy on your body. Select a mild plant-based soap like Ecostore, Earthwise or Aware.
  • Hand washing is sometimes the only option on tour, but a washing machine rinses more thoroughly and is preferable if you have the choice.
  • Most Ground Effect gear dries super-fast so hanging on the line or drooping over the bedpost is generally the best option. High heat can damage some fabrics so if you do take your threads for a spin, set the device on 'medium' or 'warm' rather than hot. A lap in the dryer is recommended for your rain jacket, after it has dried on the line, as it helps recharge its water repellant finish.

  • Items are generally packed and sent the same day your order is received.
  • Costs $9 by overnight courier within New Zealand.
  • NZ$12 by tracked airmail to Australia.
  • Around NZ$15-25 by tracked airmail to destinations elsewhere in the world - calculated in our shipping cart as you check out.

      Extreme Waterproof Gloves (Sealkskins)

      We recently upgraded our waterproof clothing for a planned winter cycling trip to the Victorian Rail Trails. After extensive research and checking of reviews, we settled on the "100% Waterproof" Sealskins for myself and partner. We got a chance to test our waterproof outer layers at the Midnight Oils concert held at Commonwealth Park in Canberra on the 19th April. It rained throughout the support bands and the Oils cancelled due to the rain at 9pm. The gloves were useless! Totally soaked through after the first hour of rain, leaving me wondering if they had forgotten to apply waterproofing to our sets! After reading and believing the reviews about these unusually designed gloves, they turned out to be an expensive waste of money. While they were nice when the weather was cold and dry, I'm sure we could have spent much less than $129 to keep our hands warm.

      Excellent for cold hands

      I get frozen fingers when riding from autumn onwards and generally use hand warmers and poly-props under gloves but these have proved themselves very good at keeping my fingers warm and dry without additional heating and insulation so far this year (it’s now a cool June) Fit is great, easy for gear changes. Definitely recommended.

      Extremes , offer Warm and Dry Hands.

      This claw style glove does initially feel different , but I think this style offers more finger warmth , in extreme cold riding , than the standard waterproof gloves .They do keep your hands warm and dry, but do struggle with the fit. I would suggest ordering “at least “, one size larger.

      Sealskinz extreme Waterproof gloves

      Well they definitely keep my hands and fingers toasty warm and bone dry. Full marks for that. I don't like the camel toe look.
