Streamlined for sending it.
Sure, you can understand why your friends might want padded gloves, but you covet the close-textured feel of your grips, and don't want to sacrifice tactile touch for cushion. Designers at Dakine understand where you're coming from, which is why they crafted up the Covert Women's Gloves. These streamlined gloves omit padding to keep you connected to the bars, but offer just enough protection on the back of your hand to shield from stray branches and trail debris.
The Coverts feature a 4-way stretch back with a Ax Suede UNO synthetic suede palm. Silicone gripper on the fingertips makes shifting easy. Because you don't want to remove your gloves to use your phone, the Coverts are touchscreen compatible. Finally, microfleece panels on the thumbs keep your nose from dripping.

great light weight gloves
These gloves are comfortable, light weight and provide great grip on your bars. They run a little tight (I usually wear a medium and still went with the medium but they feel tighter than past gloves I've had). I also like the simple triangle detail on them for something to spice it up but keep it simple.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
Looking for a lightweight glove for all your cycling pursuits? The Covert is a solid choice. Breathable, with great bar feel. These gloves are very grippy whether riding mountain, gravel, or road. They don't have any padding which is preferred by some and not by others. Have held up great after 3 months of consistent riding with a few crashes mixed in.
