You don't want gloves that offer no cushion, but you also really don't want thick gloves that interfere with your feel for the bars. POC's AVIP Short Finger Gloves strike a delicate balance between protection and sensitivity, with a perforated Clarino synthetic leather palm for control and a double layer pad for extra protection and durability. Silicone grippers at the knuckles give you extra control, and breathable four way stretch fabric on the back of the hand serves up a snug fit that won't trap sweat. On the thumb, a soft terry cloth patch makes for pain free wiping, and the elastic cuff has a pull tab for easy use. And, like everything in POC's AVIP collection, these gloves boast a reflective logo and bright orange fabric, because a little extra visibility never hurt anyone.
