Craft Shield Glove
The Shield Glove from Craft is an insulated, wind and waterproof cycling-specific model that is ideal for cold, wet rides down to about 45°F. The ergonomic fit and flexible, low density design are just right for ensuring you won't compromise functionality with your controls or handlebar in the name of protection. With excellent reflectivity for safety and solid protection, the Shield Glove will be popular with serious riders and bike commuters who don't have a second thought about riding in wet, cold, challenging conditions.
Each item carrying the Shield name must be anatomically designed, be wind and waterproof or highly water resistant, have integrated reflective print, and all use 4-way stretch Body Control fabric. Craft is keeping the lid on the technology details of how they can make such a flexible fabric so water resistant, but the base material is 100% polyester with a soft inside finish, and densely woven outside. The material breathes well, with the brushed fleece surface easing moisture off the skin and passing it through the outer layer. Shield technology works, and is ideal for cyclists living in regions where transitional seasons are a mixed bag of, cold, wet, fair conditions, or all of the above on a given day.
For the Shield Glove, Craft adds an articulated light layer Thinsulate™ insulation around the wrist, and incorporates VentAir™ X Wind panels on the forward facing finger and outside panels. This combination blocks all cold oncoming air and combine to make the fleece insulation feel much warmer than it should. At the same time, exceptional breathability allows perspiration to escape for maximum comfort. This level of performance and protection is rare in a glove this functional for cycling. A significant amount of silicone print has been used on the palm and fingers for decisive grip in cold wet conditions, and thin gel inserts across the standard bone/nerve pressure points to handle the always challenging off-season road conditions. The mandatory soft terry wiping zone on the thumb is always appreciated and having a Velcro cuff adjustment allows for personalization of fit. Amazing protection, solid warmth, and all the right details in a great-fitting cycling glove- the Craft Shield Glove.
