We normally like a plain, unstitched palm, and the stitched panels of the Rhythm gave us some concerns. In use though, Bontrager have got it so right.
The embossed, reinforced grip area has stitching that falls perfectly into the crease of your palm. This makes the palm shape perfectly to the grip and hand, giving great comfort and control.
The nose wipe is super-soft and the lightweight Lycra mesh back keeps everything cool, although it offers zero protection. The cuff makes it easy to get the gloves on and off, and does a good job of locking them comfortably in place.
