Many of us opt to ride glove less during the summer months due to the natural dexterity, sensitivity to road feedback, and cool feeling that naked hands are able to provide. However, there are situations when gloves are a must. Both racing and long days over harsh roads are a couple of scenarios where the added support and coverage that gloves provide make all of the difference in how your day turns out. After all, time spent off the bike healing mangled palms is never worth the trade off, which is why Assos designed its new summerGlovess7. The Summer Gloves are a refined version of the Assos' popular CYC gloves. They provide the signature level of quality, comfort, and durability that you've come to expect from Assos but, in typical Assos style, several updated design features have been incorporated. The airy mesh see through padding is still present, although it's slightly denser and placed in more optimized locations to better soak up road chatter. Lightweight, stretchy back panels conform to your hands for a full range of motion, with mesh panels between the fingers providing breathability and a light, nonrestrictive fit. Closure is handled by a slip fit cuff that follows the contour of the forearm at the underside of the wrist. The Assos summerGlovess7 are available in six sizes from X Small to XX Large and in the colors Black Vokanga, Red Swiss, and White Panther.
