2012 GEAR GUIDE: SWRVE FULL FINGERED GLOVES
Those already familiar with Swrve Cycling know that they produce some of the best urban cycling apparel available. One of their latest offerings is this pair of full-fingered gloves inspired by gloves worn by professional Keirin racers. The gloves are primarily designed for riding in city traffic but we know these badass bitches are just right for the intensity of track racing. Features include a Kevlar skid patch, passive venting to keep the fingers cool, conductive fingertips (for touchscreen junkies who can’t wait a few extra seconds to remove the gloves before checking their F’book) and of course the carbon knuckle guard to protect your hands.
The gloves are available in two different materials — classic leather ($75) or vegan-friendly synthetic leather ($35) — and are available at Swrve Cycling.
