WHY WEAR MOUNTAIN BIKING GLOVES IN SUMMER?
Mountain biking gloves are important for your safety all year round.
Keeping your hands covered all the way to the fingertips is key to preventing scratches from vegetation, especially in the forest or on singletracks. What's even more important, when you fall, is that your reflex is to put your hands out to cushion yourself. Mountain biking gloves keep your hands from getting scratched and cut. Gloves are also there to dampen vibrations when riding.
A VARIETY OF FABRICS
Our engineers and designers closely studied the hand's contact points when mountain biking. They have chosen:
- a material on the back of the hand that withstands vegetation.
- a material on the palm that grips the handlebars well.
- silicone bands to grip the brakes (on 3 fingers, because that's all you need to brake).
They have also padded certain contact areas such as the palm, and improved ventilation.
These ST 500 gloves are smartphone compatible. You can track your GPS routes, use your apps or take photos at any time with the touchscreen-friendly fabric on the fingertips.
The seams have been specially designed to be more resistant to tearing.
TERRY CLOTH FOR PERSPIRATION
Because mountain bikers perspire as much as tennis players, a small section of the thumb is made of terry cloth. It also comes in handy for runny noses.
