Strengths:    Nice, which can be a challenge for my thin hands. Stretchy and thin enough for comfortable handling. Nice reflective markings.

Weaknesses:    Glove failed to prevent cold air from seeping in around the fingertips and the underside of the hands. Within 10 minutes on the trail, my fingers were painfully cold on a 34 degree day.

Bottom Line:   
I was very disappointed in this product and the promotion of it as a wind stopping glove. I retunred to my car for other gloves within the first 30 minutes of trying them out. Feel that this was a waste of my money. However, it does not seem to be representative of Cannondale's overall product line. I happily own many other products made by them.

Strengths:    Comfortable, lightweight, highly reflective material so you can be seen in the evening. Late Fall Early Winter gloves.

Weaknesses:    I commute in the mornings and evenings and its cold in the mornings. these gloves can withstand 40 degree temps, but not much less. Hold on tight to the handlebar, because if you expose the material on the palm side of the gloves, it will let in the cold. DON'T attempt to grip onto cold handlebars. After a while you get used to it.

Bottom Line:   
I think these gloves are really comfortable while riding. They don't really interfere with rapid shifters and allow for good overall hand mobility. The reflective material is a definite plus. The gloves are good if used correctly (by holding onto the handlebar straight) but if your riding style is holding onto the handlebar sideways like roadbike handlebars... it won't protect you from the cold all that well. 40 degrees or over. no less especially if commuting in cold temps

Strengths:    warm but not too warm (just right!)

Weaknesses:    none yet

Bottom Line:   
I've only used the gloves for a short time but in 20 degrees farenheit temperature the gloves worked good (not too hot and not cold at all). I have not exposed them to wetness yet so I'm not sure how they will handle that. Overall I am very please so far.
