Hirlz Grippp Tour gloves review£44.99

Kangaroo leather palms

BikeRadar score3.5/5

The Grippp Tour full-finger gloves from Hirlz are quite unusual in that their palms are constructed from kangaroo leather. This supple, thin palm translates into masses of grip on the bar in normal dry conditions and just as much, if not more, grip when the rain is pouring.

We’re big fans of the thin upper and minimal Velcro cuff – it doesn’t get caught or snagged on jerseys. There’s a massive terry cloth wipe for wiping your nose with too. The fit is really comfortable too – like a second skin. It’s just a shame about the name.
