It doesn't have to hurt. Much.
Getting out on your bike in the dead of winter requires a lot of drive, determination, passion, and windproof, breathable gear. Nobody does windproof and breathable quite like Gore. WindStopper fabric became the benchmark softshell material years ago and it still leads the way. With light, synthetic insulation and windproof breathable Windstopper fabric, the Gore Bike Wear Xenon Thermo SO Glove is ready to give you the upper hand in the battle against Old Man Winter.
However, Gore didn't stop at fabrics to keep your hands comfortable. The Xenon SO features a design that's specific to road cycling, and this forethought is most predominantly displayed in the grip of the gloves. Knowing that you're applying consistent force at the webbing between your thumb and pointer finger (think of how you grip the hoods), Gore reinforced the area to resist abrasion and to strengthen the grip. Further along these lines, Gore also coated the fingers in silicone for confident shifts and added both gel and foam padding to the palm of the gloves to absorb road vibration and reduce numbness and fatigue .
To make you more visible in
low-light conditions, Gore also added reflective accents throughout the
the gloves. Gore also added absorbent material on the thumb to allow you to wipe away sweat before it drips into your glasses and snot before it shellacs your 'stache.
Gore Bike Wear Xenon SO Gloves are available in White or Black and in from Small to 3XL.
