WHY WEAR MOUNTAIN BIKING GLOVES IN SUMMER?
Mountain biking gloves are important for your safety - year round.
Keeping your hands covered all the way to the fingertips is key to prevent scratches from vegetation, especially in the forest or on single tracks. What's even more important, when you fall, your reflex is to put your hands out to cushion yourself. Mountain biking gloves will reduce cuts and scrapes. Gloves are also there to dampen vibrations when riding.
A VARIETY OF FABRICS
Our engineers and designers closely studied the points of contact with the hands when mountain biking. They chose:
- a fabric that holds up to vegetation for the back of the hand.
- a fabric that grips the handlebar grips on the underside of the hand.
- silicone strips to grip the brakes (on 3 fingers, because that's all you need to brake).
Certain areas like the palm are also reinforced while others are ventilated.
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 were specially designed to be tear resistant.
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.
Use the two press studs to keep them together.
Our engineers always have real riders test all our products in real conditions. These tests round out our lab tests and let us validate all our products before they hit store shelves.
