What about those "condoms" people put on the brake levers. Comes in various colours.

Cute. Much help.

Works for riding CO in Jan/Feb when the trails aren't iced over. Book

even with 100% winter gloves I was losing feeling in my brake fingers.

You're probably running into two problems that happens with ice climbing. 1. When you are gripping you are squeezing those blood vessels reducing warm blood to your hands. So not overgripping is even more important 2. If your core isn't warm enough as the blood goes down your arms it continues to cool, not helping anything.

what grips you running curcles?

ESI's seem to stay warmer for me than other harder materials. No need to answer, I probably won't be back in the forum for weeks.

My hands don’t get cold.

Did fair amount of ice climbing in the day. Not cold.

Flashbacks of 'screaming barfies' coming in now, thanks Axxe.
I find if I generally bundle myself up well, my hands eventually get nice and warm after my heart rate gets up. But that takes me a while so my hands are pretty cold until I've done a good bit of climbing. So I'll often do do hanging of the arms and swinging them around method to get blood into them when I have the chance, I'm sure I look super cool doing it.
But yeah..compared to ice climbing it's nothing, so I guess it's what your used to.

When it gets awful cold, do any of you run tape/heatshrink/etc... on your brake levers to help with the cold? It was snowing yesterday on a ride and my brake fingers were freezing.

Go to Stikrd Insta page and there is a post about them being able to print on grip tape now and I told them they need to do some for MTB levers and I wanted my username from here printed on them with my headshot. Everyone go tell them we needz them!!!!!

Brake Lever Blade condoms made by Durex?

The added girth could make braking a little more uncomfortable but maybe they will shrink a little in the cold.

Hockey tape works well too.

I bought some self adhering silicon tape and wrapped my metal brake and clutch levers. Rode at around 5-6,000 ft with a few inches of snow on the ground and more lightly falling. Insulating the lever actually helped a ton. And bonus, it was grippier than bare metal. Thanks everyone.
