Bicycle gloves should provide comfort, compression, control, support, shock absorption, pain and fatigue relief and protection from the elements. After your helmet, gloves are the most important safety equipment you can own.
Your gloves should fit snugly – but not be tight. The perfect fit will be loose on the fingers and comfortable around the palm. Good bicycle gloves have moisture-wicking capabilities that keep your hands dry and cool in warm weather. Yet protect your hands against the cold and other harsh elements in cold weather.
There are literally hundreds of different styles available (each with their own unique features) and selecting the right gloves can be overwhelming. To help you with the task, Outdoor Junkie has researched and reviewed some of the best gloves available based on quality, durability, functionality and overall quality.
