UX BeiJing China Pogies

Coming from a worm country, I was very surprised to see bicycles with thick gloves permanently* attached to the thick bicycle handlebar.
I smiled, thinking this is a simple solution for a few problems:

  • The time it takes to remove / put on gloves with a narrow build.
  • If not attached to bicycles, you would have to carry the big gloves pair with you all day, on top of carrying the regular thin gloves, used during the day.
    (In that cold, having just one regular pair of gloves, is not enough for a bicycle ride longer than two minutes)
  • Avoiding the annoying mystery of “the disappearing glove” (How is it that always oen one glove goes missing?)

* = “permanently”: The gloves are detachable, but during the cold winter there is no reason to take them off the bicycles. They are also too thick for daily indoor use.
