Gore Bike Wear is one of the most respected names in bike gear and clothing. It's made quite a name for itself in the worlds of cold weather cycling and mountain biking. Less well known, but just as meticulously well made are Gore Bike Wear's warm weather products. The Alp X 2. 0 Glove is made with Gore selected fabrics to keep your hands protected from impact and vibration fatigue. The Alp X 2. 0 is made with two different kinds of padding, strategically placed to offer the best possible protection and dexterity. On the front of the palm, foam padding is used to absorb the vibration that come through your handlebars and causes muscle fatigue. The heel of the hand gets gel padding that protects your hand from impact and injury.GBW added ventilation holes between the fingers which, along with the cut off fingers, keep your hand cool and dry by forcing air to flow through the glove. An absorbent, fast drying panel on the thumb allows you to wipe away sweat before it can make its way down to sting your eyes and smudge your glasses. Loops at the end of the fingers make it easier to pull the gloves off, and a hook and loop strap allows you to customize your fit. Gore Bike Wear Alp X 2. 0 Gloves come in S to 3XL. They are available in Black or RedBlack.
