Especially during summer, your gloves should be light, airy and breathable. There are different materials to choose from. Particularly popular for the warm season are mesh materials, which wick off excessive moisture and heat to the outside fast, where they can evaporate. In this way, your hands will stay comfortably dry and cool on warm days, too.
Some brands such as Roeckl offer materials like SunTan, a tan-through upper fabric for an evenly tanned back of hand.
The palm is mostly made from a synthetic leather, which offers good breathability on the one hand and safe grip on the bars as well.
When you are riding your bike, uneven roads or rough trails cause micro vibrations that reach from the wheels through to the fork, handlebar and into your hands. The constant stress caused by vibrations can lead to premature fatigue of your hands. This can be solved by integrating a padding on the palm – either made from foam or gel.
