Keep your cool.
Sweaty palms should be reserved for horror movies and first dates, not bike rides, so Dakine hooked the Ventilator Men's Gloves up with obscene amounts of mesh to keep your hands cool and comfortable. The upper and palm are both made of mesh — stretch nylon and silicone, respectively — and the only non-mesh area is the thumb, which is made of moisture-wicking and breathable microfleece for nose and sunglasses wiping.
The palms feature lightweight gel padding to help your hands stay unbruised, and a low-profile, hook-and-loop closure that keeps dirt and grime sealed out. Dakine even integrates touchscreen-compatible fingertips so you can keep your social media game on point.
