Summer weight gloves for every day riders must feature excellent padding, breathability, and durability. Louis Garneau has continually delivered on these requirements, and the Biogel RX-V Gloves are just the latest great option. With dual density, anatomically informed padding, specific air-flow design, and quality materials, this is a great glove, and a tremendous value at the price.
The patented Ergo Air® palm cooling zone is an X-shaped ventilation chamber that actively promotes air flow without compromising padding, fit, or tactile response. The perforated Amara synthetic palm material wears well, with a soft feel. Padding is supplied by the Biogel inserts which reduce pressure on the ulnar and median nerves, and reduces hand fatigue through vibration and impact absorption. The gel is applied under the metacarpals at a 3mm thickness, while the ulnar nerve and palm heel are protected by 5mm of padding. You get optimal padding without losing flexibility in the glove or losing feel at the controls.
The outer material is a spandex power mesh, which stretches and breathes, while providing a comfortable fit. Retention comes from an externally facing velcro closure cuff. As you would expect, a soft fleece wiping zone covers the back of the thumb. Overall this a comfortable glove that keeps you cool, dry, protected and in control at all times.
