Show Description

Cycling season can go longer than you’d think with these gloves. Wind-resistant fabric protects your digits, helping you cruise through chilly gusts.

  • Backs of hands are wind-resistant bonded soft shell material with a DWR finish to shed light precipitation.
  • Faux-suede palms are abrasion resistant.
  • Interior and cuffs are soft brushed fleece with a wicking finish.
  • Sniffle patches on thumbs are a great alternative to snot rockets.
  • Precurved fingers provide great dexterity.
  • Touchscreen conductive patches on thumbs and forefingers so you can check your Strava segments.
  • 3M reflective details and a reflective print keep you visible on night training missions.

A windproof garment does not allow any air to permeate the fabric. A garment with windproof panels has panels of fabric that are totally windproof, but the rest of the garment may not be windproof. A wind-resistant garment resists some wind, but not as much as a garment that is windproof.
