Gloves: Pearl Izumi Cyclone vs Specialized Deflect?
I bought a pair of Specialized Deflect gloves a couple weeks ago. They are rated down to 50 degrees, and although I know some people are comfortable wearing them in colder temps, my hands freeze if I wear them when it's below 50 or maybe the high 40s.
Today I tried on some Pearl Izumi Cyclone gloves at a different LBS. They are a bit more comfortable and have MUCH better padding, but in terms of thickness and warmth they seem very, very close to the Specialized Deflects. The materials seem to be almost identical unless I'm missing something.
So, to anyone who has tried both, is one warmer than the other? I have some nice thick gloves for temps down in the 30s or even a little lower, but my hands sweat in them when the temps are in the 40s. I need something in between those and the Deflects.
