The lightest Goretex glove?

I ride in SoCal and see lots of 50F days. I currently have the Dakine Bronco gloves but they are too warm. What is the thinnest goretex glove out there? I'm looking at the Dakine Impreza, but I'm afraid even that will be too warm... I'm looking for something with as little insulation as possible but that still keeps me dry.

If you go to and look at their snowboard gloves, you can click Gore-tex as an option and choose a warmth option. 2 (5 being warmest) is the lowest option that comes in Gore-tex, and it is the Impreza. If you read the site, it claims the Impreza has NO insulation, so I would say that is a good bet.
