LOUIS GARNEAU MEN'S
With the dynamic nature of weather, especially in winter, it makes sense to have some adaptability with regards to your cycling clothing. After all, when you spend five hours out on the bike, a lot can change over the course of the ride. These Garneau Super Prestige Gloves are made with convertibility in mind. They can transform from full fingered gloves to a lobster styled mitt in just seconds, and you can do it as you ride.
The beauty of this system is that you effectively get two gloves in one. Sure, we've loved lobster gloves ever since our first pair of Pearl Izumi Pittards lobsters, and their effectiveness is unquestionable. However, they can quickly get too warm when the sun comes out. That's when we want simple full fingered gloves. The Super Prestige Gloves are both. The top of the hand and fingers are made of a stretch lycra and Wind Dry, a 3-ply waterproof/breathable, micro-perforated polyester. The thin nature of these materials allows them to be super comfortable and afford good grip on the handlebars. This is furthered by the suede-like synthetic Amara on the palms. When the temperature demands it, you can pull the lobster mitts free from the built-in pockets on the top of the hand and slip them over your fingers. At this point you'll have a waterproof/windproof shell encasing your digits for improved heat retention.
The Garneau Super Prestige Gloves are Black and come in five sizes from Small to XX-Large. The palms are padded with a number of gel pads that range in thickness from 1 to 5mm.
