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.

Dave Stohler wore them in the film Breaking Away. The iconic crocheted half-finger cycling glove is designed with an eye to both tradition and function. They’re a great choice for biking in warm weather.

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.

Planet Bike Taurus gloves provide comfort, protection, and breathability for bicyclists of all abilities. With sizes from extra-small to extra-large, these cycling gloves are designed to fit both men, women and even kids. We think you’ll appreciate these classic gloves as you pedal through the summer.

We love the balance that the bicycle brings to the world and its power to make people, communities and the planet healthier. In addition to creating products that make cycling safer and more enjoyable, we pledge time, resources and profits to organizations working for sustainable transportation solutions.
