Shimano Advanced Gloves. True to their name, the Shimano Advanced Gloves are the product of typical Shimano ingenuity and know how that results in a superb performer for your hands. The ergonomics in this Cycling Glove are truly superb, as Shimano's free flexing cuff structure ensures smooth wrist motion in any handlebar position while the wrap around Velcro closure improves stability and comfort. Shimano has developed their own Poron XRD padding to smooth out the rough stuff while the Clarino synthetic leather palm provides a level of durability and suppleness that's second to none. The large slanted opening makes it a breeze to slip the gloves on or off, there's a microfiber thumb to wipe away perspiration, and it's rated UPF 50 for protection from the sun's rays.
