One of the first signs of the coming cold season is feeling your hands slowly lose feeling on an early morning ride. The first sign of fall and the coming winter ahead. And nothing is more crucial for making or breaking a ride than temperature management. 45NRTH's Sturmfist 5 will keep your hands comfortable, able to fend off that first sign of dropping temperatures.
The most crucial factor in keeping your hands warm and functional is water and wind resistance. The outer shell and the goat leather of the palm of the Sturmfist 5 work in concert as your first defense from these deterrents. And from the inside, a Merino wool lining wicks moisture from your hands as you break a sweat, and 100g Polar Tech Alpha Insulation allows that moisture to escape while retaining heat. Keeping heat in while blocking the worst offenders from the outside.
The Sturmist 5 will provide you with the protection to ride through the coldest months of the year. No need to put away your bike when the temperatures drop below freezing.
