Tester Emma Franklin Time tested Three months/1500 miles What’s good? Made from a mix of full-grain leather on the palms, fin­gers and knuck­les and Nys­pan tex­tile fab­ric on the back of the hand, the Weise Le­gends of­fer win­ter pro­tec­tion with­out the bulk. The ther­mal Pri­maloft lin­ing, re­in­forced with a wa­ter­proof and wind­proof Hi­pora mem­brane, keeps my hands warm when rid­ing at tem­per­a­tures as low as 5°C. They also stay dry dur­ing sleety down­pours, and are re­tained se­curely via sim­ple Vel­cro straps at the wrist and cuff. Mc­fit tech­nol­ogy also en­sures that you don’t pull out the in­ter­nal lin­ing with your hand when you take them off, an an­noy­ance which af­fects many other win­ter gloves.

What’s not? At tem­per­a­tures lower than 5°C the cold does start to creep in, and hits my fin­gers worst of all. There’s also only pad­ding at the knuck­les and fin­gers to pro­tect from im­pact in a crash, which makes the gloves very com­fort­able but doesn’t give the re­as­sur­ance that hard ar­mour pro­vides.
