For the long-term care of your gloves, it’s best to hand wash them with a mild detergent in lukewarm water and let them air dry. If machine washing is desired, make sure the cuff closures are secured so the "hooks" don't adhere to other items in wash. Add detergent to the wash after the water has started and avoid fabric softeners. To preserve the technical performance of your gloves, we recommend using a simple detergent that is free of additives. You can also rinse non dirty gloves in hot water to get rid of any surfactants that might appear. Never place your gloves in a commercial dryer or use any “hot” settings. They can be machine dried, just be careful to use lower or warm setting. If in doubt, treat them like your jeans and let them air dry for best future fit.

Natural cotton crochet mesh covers the back of the hand to provide a close and comfortable fit that increases ventilation to keep your hands cool during long summer rides. The soft and sturdy leather palm gives you a firm hold on your handlebars and has a reinforced Kevlar zone for added durability. We added 5mm foam padding to better absorb vibrations caused by rough terrain and road conditions, thus decreasing hand fatigue and improving comfort during long rides. The half-finger design leaves your fingertips exposed for great tactile feedback and bar control.
The adjustable hook and loop closure and lycra fourchettes between the fingers provide for a great customizable fit and the tricot inner lining is soft against the skin. We’ve also added a soft terry cloth nose wipe on the thumb.
