Cycling gloves are one of the indispensable equipment for cyclists, so how do you choose the riding gloves that suit you? This article gives a detailed answer to the role of bicycle gloves and their purchasing skills.
When the bicycle is in a high-speed motion state, the rider’s control effect on the bicycle largely depends on the skill of the hand. The exquisite workmanship of riding gloves has made great efforts to prevent slip resistance. The air permeability depends on the material and size of the glove. The protection of the palm is mainly reflected in the rollover? Riders often touch the ground with their palms first to make their body land slowly. If there is no glove for shock absorption, this action will easily cause the palm to be worn out and severely damage the joints.
The reason why riding gloves are silently dedicated is mainly because there are not many friends who realize that gloves protect wrist joints. In fact, because the rider adopts a different sitting posture and gripping style from leisure cycling, this puts the wrist joint in an abnormal state of tension for a long time, and its negative impact on nerves and tendons is even lifelong. The special function of riding gloves is to relieve the pressure on the wrist joints to the greatest extent. Comparing it with ordinary gloves when the back is flattened down, you will find that its front is not flat but upturned, which is exactly the same as that of the rider. The posture of the grip is consistent.
