With a focus on protection, the Turbulence gloves from Royal Racing feature a thin, tough palm and Thermoplastic Rubber (TPR) detailing on the back of the hand with neoprene protection. A TPR cuff closure keeps things snug.
The thumb and index finger have silicon grip detail and the tip of the index finger features a touchscreen-compatible material, which is useful for those irritating moments when your phone rings mid-ride.
Fit is good – we initially found the thumb a touch short, but it loosened up once washed. Despite the heavy-duty build, they are fairly cool to wear thanks to the vented panels on the finger sides.
