HINCAPIE PERFORMER GLOVE
Shipping Weight: 1.00 pounds
If you do avoid wearing gloves, itâ€™s most likely because you hate losing the immediate feeling of the handlebars in your hands. Hincapie kept that in mind when they designed the Performer Gloves. They make their palms from the lightweight and abrasion resistant Chamude fabric. Chamude is a high-tech material that has a leathery feel and improves on many of the benefits leather offers in terms of durability, absorbability, ventilation and temperature control. These palms are so strong that you can wipe your tires after rolling through glass without worrying about any shards penetrating the material. An open cell foam-cushioned gel-grip pad is integrated into the palm so that youâ€™ll get the comfy protection from bumpy roads, though your feeling of control and connection to the handlebars will not be compromised.
The abrasion resistant lycra uppers will also be efficient at protecting your knuckles if the untoward happens and you end up wiping out on a descent or hitting some sand while taking a corner at great speed. The thumb has been reserved for a super absorbent terry cloth so that you can wipe sweat or a runny nose with equal facility. The wrist has an adjustable closure that won't get in your way or poke you with pointy tabs.
