Pogies have been around for quite some time. They have been used for mopeds, skidoos, extreme cycling and kayaking to keep hands warm and protected from the elements. Pogies for bicycles may be funny looking, they are definitely a conversation starter, but we like to think of them as a winter bicycling necessity.
The cold temperatures of a handlebar and the elements outside a glove can make it difficult to shift break or do anything else with your hands during a winter bicycle ride. Pogies are essentially pockets for your hands that cover and protect the area your hands need to function in.
How they work
When your hands warm up the inside the glove, they create a microclimate sealed from the elements. The pogies stay warm and keep your hands and the controls of the bicycle warm which makes it easier to shift, break and enjoy your bicycle ride. This also means that you can bicycle in a lighter, thinner glove or liner instead of heavy winter gloves. Pogies are ideal for cycling in 0C to -30 C.
WEATHERGOODS Pogies are designed for the urban market. They are stylish and functional with discreet reflective details. Our gloves are filled with 360 grams of thermal polyfill for warmth and the top layer is made out of PU coated polyester to make them waterproof. We have a model for a curved handlebar found on city bikes and a straight handle bar on hybrids, mountain bikes and many cargo bikes.
