MTB gloves, essential to protect yourself
are almost as important as mountain bike
helmets. Indeed, they have an indispensable protective
role in this discipline. For practices such as DH or enduro, pilots place as much importance on the choice of their gloves as on their full protections or on their knee pads.
The MTB glove is similar to BMX gloves
or motocross long glove
versions. The short glove models resemble road bike gloves
, also called fingerless gloves
For some years now, we have seen the appearance of technical materials for the manufacture of MTB gloves (lycra, clarino, synthetic leather, neoprene...). Today, there are high-performance products that offer comfort, security and freedom of movement.
The MTB glove is therefore a device that allows you to ride while being protected, it also allows you to fight against the cold, to have a good grip on your MTB handles, or simply to avoid to damage your hands during improvised repair sessions.
An MTB glove for each practice
To find the right MTB glove, you must first choose it according to the discipline.
Indeed, in cross-country and especially in the summer period, short gloves are preferred, whereas at this same period in DH, the pilot will keep wearing long gloves for protection.
You should also take into consideration comfort and freedom of movement. The role of a glove is also to optimise the sensations of piloting.
Finally the choice of material is also important, a breathable mesh glove will bring you freshness, and conversely a neoprene glove will bring you waterproofness and heat in extreme conditions.
