If you pay close attention to what the peloton is wearing on their hands, you'll notice that they're either opting for nothing or a minimal design. Yes, even the pros benefit from vibration absorption, but the main rationale behind glove donning is to keep the hands dry and comfortable. Lucky for you, Capo understands this concept, and accordingly, it created the new Crono Lycra SF Gloves.
Starting with the palm of the gloves, Capo used Clarino microfiber for the construction. This material was incorporated for its resistance to abrasion and moisture, while also remaining highly malleable. So, your grip and feel on the bars isn't sacrificed for that of protection. The padding remains sparing in its volume in order to provide the perfect balance of feel and vibration absorption.
At the back of the hand, we find that Capo included a single material, Power Lycra. Why? Well, this fabric's muscle-holding support minimizes the fatigue-inducing effects of the muscle oscillation that results from road vibration. Additionally, this material effectively manages moisture, leaving your hands dry and comfortable over the long haul. Lastly, the Lycra is highly malleable, meaning that your reach to the shift levers, whether on the hoods or in the drops, remains uninhibited.
In terms of fit, you'll find that the Pursuit gloves conform to the hand like a second skin. The fingers stop just short of the knuckles, and the cuff extends to a mid-length over the wrist. For closure, the gloves simply slip on, eliminating the potential abrasion caused by hook-and-loop strap systems.
The Capo Pursuit SF Gloves are available in five sizes from Small to XX-Large and in the colors Black and White.
