Two-wheeled adventures in the backcountry often include adverse weather, and the advancement of mountain bikes from fat bikes to 29ers and the integration of camping gear has led to easier access of remote locations. If you plan on taking your bike to places less traveled, the Gore Bike Wear ALP-X GT Gloves will make a great companion if the weather looks variable.
Gore devolved the ALP-X GT specifically to offer protection and grip for wet and cold conditions. The shell of this glove features Lycra on the back of the hand to wick and evaporate perspiration. It's also very stretchy to ensure unrestrictive movement. For insulation and wind and water protection, Gore lines the inside of the ALP-X GT with its Gore-Tex laminate.
This laminate is soft against the skin while ensuring your hands are protected from the elements. At the palm, reinforcements add durability, while intelligently placed gel padding works to prevent fatigue. There is a soft thumb wipe integrated into the glove as well. The elastic cuff has a draw cord to seal out cold air, and pull tabs make it easy to pull on or off with frozen fingers.
Finishing off the Gore Bike Wear ALP-X GT Glove is reflective logos for added safety if you find yourself negotiating dark streets to get home. It comes in Small through XXX-Large sizes.
