As this video shows, you can convert the gauntlet glove into a short summer glove in seconds and then quickly pull a fully waterproof cover over them.
The goat skin gloves are not cheap at €179.99 (about 294) but they may the only pair of gloves you will ever need. They also only come in sizes large to 3XL.
Siima founder Giorgos Evripidou says the gloves are Euro approved, designed in Cyprus and made in Indonesia.
He says that since I had written about the lack of such an all-round, all-weather glove, he would send me a pair to review, so stay tuned.
Giorgos says they might release women’s sizes if they are a success.
“This design is something that was never done before, as far as we know,” he says.
“Thus we are taking small steps in order to make sure we have the right product in the right place.”
All-weather travel glove
The Sibirsky Adventure Glove is designed for riders who spend long days in the saddle, travel a long distance and in all types of weather.
They feature a four-way air mesh in between fingers to allow a steady air flow for the hot summer months, while the inner shell is Thermolite for warmth.
It will be interesting to see how these seemingly conflicting vents and liner work in different temperatures.
You could always pull on the thin but fully waterproof overglove to add some warmth.
We are also interested to see if the overglove makes them cumbersome and isolates the feeling of your fingers from the throttle and levers.
Siima says the gloves have 11 “protection points” of armour or extra leather thickness on the palm, knuckle, fingers and wrist.
Some other great features are a wiper blade on the left index finger, a pull string on the overgloves to seal against the rain and a grip patch on the palm for better throttle grip.
They also feature touchscreen-sensitive index and middle fingers. We’ve tried these before on other gloves and found some work better than others, so we shall see.
