The next time you head out for an after work rally at a new trailhead you've been meaning to check out, don't be caught missing shifts and sliding around the bars without your gloves. Throw the Oakley Factory 2. 0 Glove into your bag and you'll have far better grip than you do in bare hands on the coolest, driest days. Oakley adds an AX Suede palm to the glove to provide you with tacky grip against the bars, while perforations in the fabric make sure your palms are still able to breathe. During the times you find yourself ducking under encroaching tree branches, the padding at the knuckles will help protect your hands from scrapes and bumps, and the grippy pattern added to the underside of the forefinger and middle finger will make sure your shifts land exactly the way you want.
