Glove Buyer’s Guide


A product often undervalued is the right pair of gloves. As one of the main connections with your bike, gloves can make or break your ride. Furthermore, it’s important to note that gloves aren’t all made the same. Similar to purpose-built bicycles, gloves, too, feature unique qualities to enhance your ride. We decided to help you find your next perfect pair of gloves with this handy buyer’s guide. Follow along as we introduce different types of gloves and show you some of our favorite options.


Protective gloves are in their own unique category. Unlike the other categories of gloves that are available, these are designed with extra protection for your knuckles and are most often described as “confidence-boosting.” These gloves add a shield against cuts, branch strikes and, in some cases, rock strikes as well. Although these gloves might take a bit longer to break in, they make up for it with added protection. Protective gloves definitely do their job according to our test riders’ needs and are worth investing in if you want a boost of confidence riding down the trail.
