Gloves are the most underrated piece of cycling gear. A cheap pair of gloves can speed the onset of fatigue because it can cause numbness and pain in your hands and then your arms. Pinarello Corsa Gloves are anatomically designed to reduce numbness so you can ride longer and more comfortably.The palm of the Corsa is made with microfiber. This presents two advantages. The first is durability. Gloves deal with abrasion hour after hour while you ride, and you want your gloves to last as long as possible. The second is grip. As you lean on your hands, your gloves will want to slide around the tape. Microfiber grips the tape, so you don't have to continually rotate your hands back. The back of the Corsa is Lycra. Lycra's stretch won't bind or pinch, so your ride will be more comfortable. Lycra also pulls moisture away from your skin, so your hand stays dry and cool. Lycra also breathes well, so your skin will be able to regulate its own temperature. The Corsa's fingerless design also helps with breathability, as well as airflow.Pinarello added padding to the palm to reduce pain and numbness. The pads are strategically placed to reduce pressure in the most susceptible areas.
