Electric gloves

I'm looking for recommendations for heated gloves. Once it gets below 30F, I have no choice but Zwift or insane discomfort outside. As I am now hitting on the back-9 of life, I am much less able to deal with the cold. I grew up in CO and rode 12mo a year from the time of being a jr to graduating at Boulder. So I know it's a physical limitation for me.

I have OR heated ski gloves and it has been a game changer, but I cannot use them with Di2. I can't even really use them on the MTB. So I hope some folks here may have found a brand that has a glove with dexterity and heat comfort. My Craft unheated gloves are great until that freezing point, so any thoughts would be appreciated.

Cheers

Look for motorcycle heated gloves. They are also designed for using hand controls, so should have the dexterity you need. They will be pricey, but they will also include much better hand protection than most bike or ski gloves.

What about a chemical type heater. Handwarmers are a bit bulky, maybe they make small ones.

These would be overkill unless you are doing 10 hour winter rides.

Here is my glove solution that works pretty well. Layers just like shirts and pants. These silk glove liners are good, just keep them away from velcro. Insulated top hat and monocle sold separately. Very thin, could probably wear several.

Did my normal ride at 16F the other day, hands fine.

Did my normal ride at 20F the today, left pinky going numb.

No wind either day. Think I might buy a butane hand warmer just keep it in my pocket.

Didn't know they had rechargable hand warmers.
