cycling gloves Many cyclists choose to wear specially designed gloves when riding.  These gloves provide protection from the elements, with terry cloth on their backs to wipe away perspiration as well as padding on the palms to help absorb shock and ensure a firm grip on the handlebars.  They may be worn year-round, but styles vary depending on the season.  Winter gloves are made of insulating and wind-proofing material.  They are also available in waterproof styles that tend to be more costly.  Summer gloves are snug with open-tipped fingers, although many off-road summer gloves have long fore and middle fingers.

When deciding on a pair of cycling gloves, it is important to select for fit, season, and quality of workmanship.  Well designed cycling gloves feature three or five pads with gel pockets or good shock absorbing foam for protection.  The type of leather used in the palm can have a huge impact on comfort.  Pittards specialist leather is one of the most sought after types.  Popular manufacturers of cycling gloves and apparel include Pearl Izumi, Assos, Castelli, and Garneau.  You can also find a variety of bicycle riding gloves for men and women at eBay auctions.
