BMW ProSport Gloves

Anybody have these gloves? I know that they are summer gloves but have you worn them in the winter? Would they be good enough at around 40 degrees with the heated grips?

Howdy Keith,

I have the similar BMW Pro Race version. The palms side of the glove on mine is very light for winter, but with the grip heater on it is fine. Pull you hand off the grip for a moment and it will get cold in a hurry. The benefit of the light palm side is that they have extrordinary sensitivity for touch. 40 degrees, they're going to be okay.

I use the BMW Altantis most of the winter. Water proof and with the built in "wiper" on the left index finger, very practical.
