Rapha Explore Gloves
The Explore Glove is lightweight and breathable, like a pair of mitts, but provides extra grip and crash protection for mixed terrain riding in mild to warm conditions. Tested everywhere from long-distance bike packing adventures and ultra-endurance races to gravel rides and cross races, it performs year-round with flat bars or drops.
The palm is made with a highly durable suede which provides excellent grip while also being compatible with your smartphone. The same fabric is positioned on the thumb to act a nose wipe. Carefully placed gel padding reduces vibration on uneven surfaces, while a rolled cuff prevents irritation at the wrist. On the back of the hand, a durable, quick-drying mesh features throughout, protecting your hands from the sun and allowing excess heat to escape.
