Specialized BG Gel Mitt D4W review£24.99

Specialized have upped the sizing on women’s gloves, so these are nearly two sizes larger than 2006’s. Minimal velcro fastenings keep your wrists cool but feel insecure when shredding hard. Multiple back panels mean more stitching, thus they’re hotter than they could be and there’s sweaty nylon between the fingers.

Specialized have upped the sizing on women's gloves, so these are nearly two sizes larger than 2006's.

Minimal velcro fastenings keep your wrists cool but feel insecure when shredding hard. Multiple back panels mean more stitching, thus they're hotter than they could be and there's sweaty nylon between the fingers. The Body Geometry pad protects vulnerable nerves but too much thick gel on the palm absorbs trail buzz and reduces bar feel to a minimum.
