Default What Gloves-or Handlebar Gauntlets?

What is preferred in deep snow? Good gloves or gauntlets?

How thick of gloves are needed?

I prefer to ride with thin water replellent gloves on my sled but hate cold hands. With a dirtbike I prefer light gloves also so I have a wraparound handguard installed and just purchased the Powermad Guantlets from amazon. Primarily because they are made to go around the hand guards and also have a preformed ring to keep the guantlet open for easy hand enter etc. They also have a 1 year no questions asked warranty. I have ridden street bikes in cold weather with a cheaper style of these and it was hard to get hands into guantlets with gloves on as they would hang up so I hope the open hole design helps. Also the streetbike did not have handguards and the wind would push the guantlet against the levers and make then difficult also. On the positive side I ended up not even wearing gloves in 30 deg weather at highway speeds nice and warm.

I have a couple pairs of good gauntlet type sled gloves. Bring extras incase a pair gets wet.

Default hang 'n on

45 years of riding enduro's you learn to not hang on toooo hard, so on my snow bike I can wear big fat gore tex gloves no big deal, drives others crazy, ...........just relax, encourage the bars don't grab them, no white knuckle. Is nice on the 800 once in awhile on the way back in the dark to light up the grips.

bought a set of those big elephant ear gauntlets, haven't remembered to run them yet in deeep powder, looking forward to trying them this year. doubt the wr has enough juice to run a light and dry out gloves at dark.

Don't waist your time with bulky difficult to use guantlets. The best solution is to install some heating elements under your grips. Then you can use comfortable thin riding gloves for full non-fatiguing control. My 2 cents.

Yes, that's the best option, unless your bike doesn't have an electrical system to run them

i love the gauntlets myself. use a water proof moto x type glove most of the time. hands arn't so hot that snow melts on them cuz of heated grips so they stay dry.
its gonna come down to personal preference i would say.

I ordered the Powermadd gauntlets and they are pretty cool. Bars are totally accessible and it looks like they won't hinder use in any way. Thanks for the info.
