I just googled Rolhoff specific pogies and drew a blank.
Maybe adding brake noodles to the Rohloff cables at the shifter would be easier than finding Rohloff specific pogies. With the noodles any extra wide pogie should fit? Having said that, I don't have any experience with them, but I would think that that would be a way to make them work and should keep them better both wind and water proof.

Do you think with these ones it will be ok ?

You say "Noodles", you mean to attach the Rohloff cables to the handlebars ?

Julien,

George (Mickeg) used v-brake cable noodles to make a more compact cable routing from his Rohloff shifter, which is mounted to a Hubbub adapter on the end of his handlebars. You can see photos of his setup here and how it a similar setup might make it easier for the Rohloff shifter cables to fit inside a Pogie:

The big advantage of using cable noodle is they allow the cables to make a 90° turn in very little space and gets them neatly out of the way.

Best,

Dan.

Origin 8 Super Noodles could also be used https://www.sjscycles.co.uk/brakes/origin8-super-noodle-pair/

The shifter with noodles looks like this on a flat bar.

I understand better now. it could be a good idea but it mean i have to change my Rohloff cāble by a new one..

As well, the current Rohloff cāble way is perfect to enter the welded inserts, and pogies are installed just for a defined time (cold weather)

So maybe find noodles that can be "easily removed" would be more in adequacy
