Al­tura Three 60 G2 gloves £29.99

Mountain Biking UK - - WRECKED & RATED -

These mid-weight trail gloves can be worn through­out most of the year. The sin­gle-piece palm is pre-shaped rather than to­tally flat, so on the bar there’s lit­tle to no bunch­ing of ma­te­rial. There are per­fo­ra­tions on the fin­gers to aid breatha­bil­ity but none on the palm, so in the hottest weather the G2s can get a touch warm. Loads of sil­i­cone grip­per on the palm and fin­gers means great trac­tion on all but the grip­pi­est of grips. The fit of our size-large gloves was good, though the fin­gers weren’t quite as long as we’d have liked. A bulky tab on the long-ish wrist of­fers rea­son­able, if not amaz­ing, ad­justa­bil­ity. There’s a good-sized mi­cro­suede snot wipe, which even when sod­den with sweat is good for wip­ing away more, and it’s not too rough on the skin ei­ther. While the seams aren’t flat, we had no rub­bing is­sues. Tom www.al­tura.eu
