Chromag Launches First Glove Range for 2020

Mar 16, 2020
by Chromag Bikes  

Press Release: Chromag

We ride a lot here at Chromag which is why we enjoy designing our own gear. Naturally, creating our own gloves was always on the cards. We have an established apparel line and adding gloves to that rounds out our kit even more.

For 2020 we're really proud to announce the Habit and the Tact gloves.

A great deal of time and effort has gone into designing and testing these (yeah yeah it ain't all that bad!) and we hope you like them as much as we do. Both options feature top quality materials including AX palms to provide added grip in all weather conditions. A continuous palm wraps around the end of each finger to give a seamless feel at your fingertips, a small but crucial touch.

The Habit Glove in Charcoal Heather

The Habit is an ultra-lightweight but durable glove for riders who like a minimalist feel. The Habit was designed for those who wear gloves more for the added grip and moisture-wicking benefits than for protection. Tonal branding is in keeping with the minimal ethos of this slip-on glove and touch screen compatibility adds the finishing touches.


Habit Features
• Lightweight, Formfitting 4 Way Stretch Top Material
• 4 Way Stretch Finger Gusset Fabric for Flexibility and Airflow
• Seamless Fingertip Construction
• Absorbent Moisture Wipe on Thumb
• Touchscreen Compatible
• Laser Cut Venting on AX SUEDE CONNECT™ Palm
• Comfortable | Durable | Breathable


The Tact is slightly more weighty with a heavier polyester-nylon grid fabric and features a Velcro wrist closure for those who prefer a more secure feel.

As you'd expect, attention to detail is high on both the Tact and Habit gloves

The AX Ritter palm on the Tact is slightly beefier, and has a polyurethane injected pattern for a tackier feel. The palm material wraps around the fingers and outer edges to provide extra durability for those who roll their hands outward slightly, or even the occasional brush passed a tree at a tight point in the trail (or maybe you really can corner that low?!).

Tact Features
• Durable, Formfitting 4 Way Stretch Top Grid Material
• 4 Way Stretch Finger Gusset Fabric for Flexibility and Airflow
• Seamless Fingertip Construction
• Velcro Wrist Closure
• Absorbent Moisture Wipe on Thumb
• Laser Cut Venting on Tacky AX Ritter Palm
• Durable | Comfortable | Versatile


The Tact and Habit gloves range from XS to XXL and are available from select dealers and online.

 These are just opera gloves...where are the damned steel gauntlet types that offer some protection to mitts that hang off the ends of 800mm bars?!

 They look like that would feel like Troy Lee Ace’s. The ace is super lightweight, and if you are riding, and up you put up your hand into the wind, it feels as though there is no glove there. The thing is it’s touch screen is not good, and the padding is not great either.

 Touch screen? 1st world problems mate

 The sooner I can get my hands on a pair I'll get in the habit of wearing gloves again.

 The MTB industry definitely needs more glove options. Not enough rn. Same with stems, pedals and handlebars.

 I thought for a brief second that these gloves were going to match the Trailmaster saddles with baseball glove leather. Oh well...

 I'll pass. Ever since I switched to ESi grips, I don't need gloves anymore. One less expense and item to clean.

 Sports are cancelled. But we can do our sport with soft leather gloves in isolation.

 I nearly pulled the trigger on some of these during my latest chromag order, but.. my current gloves don't need replacement yet and it looks like these don't have conductive thread in any fingertips (good for starting/stopping trailforks without removing a glove).

I love minimalist gloves and these look good. The tact will probably be my next pair. Lack of conductive thread isn't a deal killer (tend to work poorly anyhow).

 Says right in the article “touch screen compatible”

 @5afety3rd: oh and it's just the habit not the tact that states "touchscreen compatible". I prefer a wrist closure. That's why I missed it, I skipped over the habit.

 Why would you need to start/stop strava regularly? Start it before you put the glove on, and then stop it when you're done riding and have taken the glove off anyway.
  • 1 0
 @Dethphist: I should have said check trailforks rather than start/stop. I do sometimes stop it when taking a break, but more often I'll check tf mid ride to determine where I want to go next, or add reports for trail obstructions. Also I ride during work hours, so sometime I need to take a call quick. In any case I tend to touch my phone while riding. Yanking my gloves off every time is a pita.
