DAKINE designed the Sentinel Mountain Bike Gloves with stretch materials and flexible D30 armor to provide protection without limiting your range of motion. Stretchy air mesh at the back of the hand helps you fingers stay cool, while a neoprene panel provides a smooth shot of abrasion resistance. The palm is made of tough but soft Clarino synthetic suede, and both the palm and back of the hand are hooked up with Dakine's flexible D3O padding, which provides flexible shock absorption and light protection. Silicone fingertip grippers give you firm control of your brakes and shifters, and a microfleece thumb panel makes for easy nose wiping and goggle cleaning. Dakine even made the Sentinel touchscreen compatible, so you can whip out your phone when you hit the bottom to take some sweet pictures of your mud covered mug.
