Best Winter Cycling Glove? Pearl Izumi P.R.O. Softshell WxB 3×1 Glove Review

Pearl Izumi P.R.O. Softshell WxB 3x1 Glove

If you’re like me, nothing kills a good winter ride more than frozen fingers. I typically don’t have any issues with the rest of my body but when the weather dips below freezing my fingertips always end up frozen solid. I mean, they start out okay, then get cold, then get hard, and then they just hurt. The worst part? When they thaw out after the ride, it’s like getting nailed with a hammer over and over again.

hope pro 2 evo rear hub

This review is for a set of Hope Pro 2 Evo 6 bolt MTB hubs that I have laced to NoTubes Crest 29er hoops.

When looking for a solid bikepacking/Tour Divide wheelset I was torn between a few options. On one hand I thought about just keeping it basic and going with a stock Crest 29er wheelset and the NoTubes 3.30 hubs. On the other hand I thought about going with the gold standard DT 240’s. That’s when I came across
