The Prologo CPC is a true race mitt – uncluttered, comfortable and lightweight, with no excess material. It uses the company’s CPC (Connect Power Control) material for extra grip.
Highs: Innovative grip and padding
Lows: The price is rather high
There’s no Velcro tab around the wrist, but the gloves slip on and off easily, in part thanks to the finger-joining loops. The wrist section is relatively short as well.
Padding and grip is provided by the CPC groupings of small conical pieces of rubber. In the dry these perform well in terms of grip, and even offer relatively good grip in the wet, but being lightweight there’s not the biggest amount of padding.
The low-pile but absorbent sweat panel performs well too, being nice and soft.
