Mountain Bike Gloves are amongst the most important products that we supply here at Westbrook Cycles, for a few good reasons. First of all, nothing ruins a ride quite like cold and wet hands - your hands are one of the first things that begin to suffer on a cold bike ride - and failure to protect them can see you wanting to finish the ride early, in search of warmth and comfort. In all regards, it’s important to use specialist mountain bike gloves which have been designed to provide the right levels of protection and importance VS normal gloves.
One of the biggest benefits of wearing mountain bike gloves, is the protection that they afford the wearer. Hands are one of the first things which make contact with the ground, as we instinctively put them out to break our fall. The right pair of gloves provides good levels of protection for the hands, thanks to tough materials and in some cases, armour. We have also mentioned the comfort that mountain bike gloves can add -with MTB gloves providing padding and materials which reduce the fatiguing effects of shock and vibration which reaches the hands through the handlebars.
Depending upon riding requirements, the main choices for most riders is between short finger gloves and long finger gloves. The main difference here is the levels of warmth, with most riders choosing to use short finger gloves in the summer, and long finger gloves in the winter. Regardless of whether you choose short finger gloves or long finger gloves - all mountain bike gloves that we supply, have been designed to provide maximum levels of grip and control - allowing you to effectively and safely handle your bike, whatever the weather. All of these gloves have been designed to allow flexibility and freedom of movement of the hands.
