The Excel Sports Team glove is made for us by Castelli and we're happy to report that it is our best team glove design to date. The glove features a Clarino palm for grip. This washable fabric looks and feels like natural leather but is more durable, retains softness when wet and offers far superior breathability. Four specific pad zones have the right amount and density of padding for comfort and a natural bar feel.These pads are placed far enough away from each other so you do not lose dexterity during movement of your hand while riding. The rear section of the glove has one large center Action Lycra panel for ventilation and support. The simple glove design foregoes the cumbersome and unnecessary Velcro closure strap, which is how we like it.
