Bear Pawswinter poggies
Lightweight cycle pogies with VX21 outer and pile lined inner for toasty hands through the winter
Bear Paws winter poggies
Bear Paws provide winter warmth and bad weather protection but unlike gloves Bear Paws stay attached to your bike, just dunk your hands in and ride.
The design fits straight and riser bars, allowing you full access to your brakes and gear shifters. Whilst not providing a 100% waterproof seal they are very effective at keeping your hands warm in the worst of weather.
The VX21 outer is the defacto fabric for bike accessories - proven for its lightweight and durability - they will also match the rest of your Alpkit bike luggage. While the fabric is technically waterproof the seams are not sealed and the cuff is open for easy access in and out.
A VELCRO® Brand side entry slot provides a dual purpose. Firstly it lets you get your poggies over your bar grips and brakes with ease. Secondly it makes it easier and safer should you need to get your hands out fast - a small strip of single-sided VELCRO® Brand (supplied) helps prevent the side entry slot sealing fully. A swift sideways sweep of your arms is enough to burst open the velcro.
Pile is an excellent insulator for UK conditions. It stays warm when wet, doesn't mind a bit of mud and should your Bear Paws get saturated you can turn them inside out for quick drying. The pile lining is inset by 70 mm to help prevent water seepage down your arms and into the insulation.
Bear Paws have been used succesfully with our hooped Confucius bars along with other loop bars - but your success may vary according to your specific configuration. Bear Paws are not suitable for use with drop bars.
