Capo Verona Cycling Gloves - 2011 BCS
Is it more PRO to wear gloves or forego them? That is a debate that has raged nearly as long as there have been cycling gloves. And we are perfectly willing to entertain arguments from either side of the aisle; but the talking stops once one of us wipes out in a pile of gravel and ends up with half the road embedded in our palms. The Capo Verona Cycling Gloves acknowledge our desire to look sharp on the bike, while protecting us from our own handling mishaps. After all, who among us wants to wait to ride until our palms stop resembling uncooked steaks?
The uppers have been made from a super breathable but durable and stretchy Lycra with a strategic mix of mesh so that your patties won't get too hot. The thumb area has a generous portion of terry cloth to help wipe sweat from the eyes and moisture from the nose without scratching or irritating these tender areas.
The palms have been reinforced with a multi-density padding that will help ward away numbness, but it's not so thick as to be irritating. We hate to have the feel of the handlebars cushioned too much, reducing the immediacy of the handling. The Verona Gloves walk a perfect line between comfort and obtrusiveness. The rubberized palm pattern gives you more grip, especially if you get stuck in an unexpected rain storm.
The sleek design features a discrete pull tab and foregoes the typical Velcro closure, of which we highly approve. Now you won't be accidentally snagging your best Lycra shorts with your imperfectly closed Lycra tab. Just pull them on and luxuriate in the very PRO appearance. Black with the tricolore emblem on the right hand and a straight-up Capo logo on the left, the enthusiastic graphics of the Capo Verona Cycling Gloves will suit the rest of your Verona kit or stand perfectly well on their own. They're available in five sizes from Small through XX-Large.
- Two to five millimeters of varying padding throughout the palms absorb vibrations and provide coverage in crucial areas
- A rubberized palm pattern gives you a solid handlebar grip
- Stretchy, breathable Lycra and mesh fabric prevent over-heating paws
- A reinforced palm pull-tab makes the gloves easy to slip into
