Air Gel Ultra Glove

Bumpy backroads and long miles on the bike can sure put a hurt on your hands, but Louis Garneau aims to take the sting away with the Air Gel Ultra Glove. Garneau claims that the Air Gel Ultra Gloves feature more gel padding than any other glove on the market, so you can count on them to absorb those vibrations from harsh potholes and gravel roads alike. The gloves feature a whopping 5-millimeters of anatomically targeted Biogel padding placed around the palm to help keep the blood flowing and prevent numbness, while Ergo Air X-Vent allows air to keep flowing freely through your palm, so padding doesn't have to equal sweaty paws. Since durability is a must for long hours on the bike, the palm is made with GTEX synthetic leather that holds up to the abuse.

  • Ultra-cushioned gloves to take the sting out of the road
  • 5mm of Biogel padding absorbs vibrations from rough rides
  • Let your mitts breathe wit help from Ergo Air X-Vent on palm
  • Durability is taken seriously with Gtex synthetic leather
  • Easy on-and-off thanks to finger pull tabs
  • Breathable back of hand lets sweat escape
  • Item #LGN00LZ

The pads are thick, but I hesitate to call the material "biogel". it just feels like fairly dense foam. when i took up cycling in 1990, i had a cheap pair of no-name gloves that had real fleshlike gel pads. It took several year to wear them out and i never found a direct replacement. these are pretty good gloves overall, though. they fit as expected.

For those who want the most padding between their palms and the grips this is a great glove. If you have any nerve sensitivity this would be a glove to consider. If on the other hand you want nothing to impede hand feel, then I would not recommend this glove. I love them. They fit true to size, are well-made and look great too.

OK, I don't have the largest hands in the world, but I do wear XL Specialized biking gloves. I honestly think my wife's (admittedly very small) hands could have fit in with mine in these gloves (I bought the XL size). They're huge. So if you have BIG hands, these could be perfect. That said, I think the GARNEAU size chart is likely accurate. I knew they were likely too big but XL was the only size available, so I decided to give them a try. Luckily I also bought a pair of similar Specialized gloves and as mentioned above they fit me fine. But the reason for the 3 stars is because I don't think the padding on the GARNEAU is as good as the padding of the Specialized.
