Nicely shaped and comfortable, these Italian-made gloves have a grippy palm lined with thin gel that absorbs road buzz effectively, and a large swatch of soft towelling on the thumb – very effective for wiping away sweat on hot summer days.
The stretchy mesh back also helps with cooling and there’s a thin strip of reﬂective tape for visibility when you’re signalling at dusk.
They’ve proven tough against a minor spill and come up shiny after a few runs through the washing machine. Fit is slightly generous – large samples were a little roomy on hands that usually take that size.
