The hottest and coolest glove of (does that make sense??) 2008 will undoubtedly be Troy Lee Designs “Air Glove”. Totally revamped for this year these will be the glove of choice for every rider out there.
O.K maybe that was a slight over statement regards every rider, anyone from Alaska or Siberia click back now and go checkout the “POD” or something. Hold on, does Alaska even have electricity let alone the internet?The Troy Lee Designs
Air Glove is really the only glove they have totally re-designed from head to toe (That doesn’t make sense either does it) for 2008. The back of the hand part is made from a super light vented piece of material that when held up to the light shows pin holes of sunshine. Dual purpose this, allows the heat out and the rushing cool air in.
No Velcro wrist straps, remember this is TLD’s entry glove, though there is a small rubber guitar pick sized and shaped tab to help you pull them on. This is located right by your wrist, the part you’d slit if your mates ever caught you clipping in, wearing lycra or rollerblading.
Zero protection on the backside and nothing on the palms either keeps the weight down and your bars in immediate contact, almost giving the feeling of riding bareback without protection. The palms are pebble dashed with over 100 small and tacky silicon squares for plenty of grip. Real leather? No, the “Clarino” leather is synthetic (false) yet is still breathable with a suede feel and is easy care (machine washable).
Available in the following four colours/colors/kerb/curb:
