Aero savings start at the hands.
Gloves can certainly add some additional grip and protection while out on the road, but when you're jocking a skinsuit and an aero helmet, you don't want to throw on any old glove messing up your aerodynamics. If it may be a little cooler out or you're competing in something that has a greater propensity of touching down, say a track race or a crit, you might want the extra protection of Pearl Izumi's P.R.O. Aero Full Finger Glove for some aerodynamic benefits and a little extra protection.
The full-finger design is thin so it offers as much dexterity as you could hope for from a full-finger glove. Conductive synthetic leather on the index finger and thumb works with touch screen devices letting you attend an important call or navigate GPS. A soft Clarino synthetic leather palm helps provide a sure grip to the bar tape even if you have sweaty palms going into the bell lap. Pearl constructs the back of the gloves with a 1:1 Glove fit from P.R.O. Aero fabric, a stretchy synthetic blend with texture, helping reduce drag so you get to the line a little quicker. If you need to wipe your nose or brow, Pearl includes a low-profile wiping surface on the thumb. A simple pull-on design avoids the extra bulk of a hook-and-loop strap.
