Sleek and durable, the Capo MSR SF Cycling Gloves embody the duality of the cyclist; an allure towards memorable aesthetics and the need for performance. Further exploration shows the combination of leather and lycra (not a cycling cover band) as the amalgamation of new and old under the banner of what you've come to expect of modern performance cycling gloves.
Durable, imported Pittards leather coats the palm and thumb webbing of the MSR Short Fingered gloves. The leather palm has been reinforced with dual-layer foam for extra comfort. For strength, Capo incorporated leather on the end seam for all of the fingers, and added a sturdy low-profile Velcro wrist strap. The top of the glove is comprised of stretched HG Lycra with ventilation points on the knuckles to keep your hands cool and dry.
Minimal branding, exceptional materials, and clever design make the Capo MSR SF Cycling Gloves a strong investment for your hands. The MSR SF Cycling Gloves are available in Black, and in sizes Small through X-Large.
The gloves fit and function well, but leave black stains on my hands. The stains come out in the shower, but take some effort to remove. Other gloves I've owned have not left stains like this. For the high price paid, I expect better.
I was given a pair of these by a friend whom they did not fit. I found them to be sound and comfortable, although not particularly padded. They're great everyday riding gloves, but perhaps a little thin for 75+ miles. The stitching came undone around the cuff, but it was a quick repair. I lost a pair to a bad crash earlier this year and decided that they were worth replacing.
