While these gloves have a place in the road cycling and mountain biking environment, they are exceptionally well suited to running, hiking and paddling disciplines.
The upper is made from a light, tight-mesh, breathable fabric that offers protection from light chill and sun. The palm material is a thin, light foam. It is soft, durable and flexible allowing you to grip items like trekking poles, a paddle shaft or handlebars without bunching, adding puffy volume or diminishing tactile feel significantly.
For the coldest winter mornings and nights, you will need more insulation than these lightweight gloves provide, like the Cyclogel Gel Padded Long-Fingered Gloves. These Lite ones would take over when the sun comes out and you start warming up.
Great to use for:
- improved grip and comfort using trekking poles (prevents blisters)
- chilly bike rides
- cold and windy hiking / running
- vegetation grabbing when scrambling
- holding a cold paddle shaft in windy, cold conditions.
