These days it's harder and harder to get away from our electronic gadgets. Sometimes you just can't afford the luxury of leaving them behind. The Louis Garneau Elite Touch Glove makes being a responsible adult a little easier with smartphone-friendly pads on the index finger and thumb, so you don't have to struggle with your gloves every time your phone rings.
At the heart of the Elite Touch Glove is Biogel Progressive Padding. Biogel absorbs impacts and vibration to reduce shock-induced injury and fatigue. It also virtually eliminates the numbness associated with hours on the bars. The Elite Touch also employs Garneau's patented Ergo Air Concept, which forces air through the glove to keep your hand cool, dry, and comfortable.
The Elite Touch's palm is made from a multi-panel, durable, synthetic leather called Clarino. This material, along with the Elite Touch's light gel padding, provides exceptional grip and dexterity, creating an unmatched feel on the bars while reducing hand fatigue and numbness. This perfect translation of the trail's surface gives you an upper hand while navigating tight, technical singletrack. The palm is also coated with silicone for improved grip.
The Louis Garneau Elite Touch Glove is available in five sizes from Small to XX-Large and in the colors Black and Black/white.

This glove bridges the gap between cold and warm weather gloves: when it is too cold for no fingers and too warm for full finger wind proof gloves: high 50's to 70 degrees. I have used them extensively for a year and they are durable, comfortable, and fit great.

Good idea on the smartphone-friendly pads on the index finger and thumb - those work well for phone navigation. However, the material is so thin that within just a few rides, the stitching started to fall apart. Overall, very bad construction. At first, I thought I just got a bad version, but the replacement pair did the same after only 1 ride.
Is this glove designed for warm weather conditions? I cant seem to find a warm weather long finger glove.
High 50's to 70.
