Performance cycling mitts for warm weather
Rapha has updated all of its gloves and mitts for 2017. Pro Team Mitts are designed for riders and racers looking for cycling mitts that deliver uncompromising performance in warm and hot weather. The key to the new changes is the fit: a mesh panel inserted on the underside of the seams creates shape when your hands grip the bars but doesn’t feel restricted when you relax your hands. The seams have also been repositioned to avoid any pressure points, easing the strain on your hands. The mitts are lightweight, made of an antibacterial and breathable fabric with a single perforated layer of microsuede on the palm. This is to ensure that they grip well, don’t hold onto sweat, dry quickly and still offer some protection in the case of a crash. There is no gel insert, as Rapha has found through feedback from pro racers that this isn’t necessary for rides and races of no longer than a few hours, and it allows riders to feel more connected to the bike. Other performance features include a mesh on the thumb back for wiping your nose and two finger pull loops for taking the mitts off. Elite performance technology by Rapha, at the tip of your fingers.
