Dis­sent 133 lay­ered glove sys­tem

Cycling Weekly - - HOT KIT -

There are on av­er­age 133 rainy days in a UK year, and this South Downs-based brand has come up with an in­no­va­tive way to en­able you to ride, not hide, dur­ing them.

The idea is that you layer your hands just as you would layer the rest of your body. There are four sep­a­rate gloves in Dis­sent’s 133 sys­tem, with at least 11 pos­si­ble com­bi­na­tions based on wear­ing a max­i­mum of three.

A silk liner glove acts as the base layer, then there’s the Cor­dura E-touch ther­mal layer, the Show­er­lite wind­proof layer and the Outdry Lite water­proof layer.

All four gloves are avail­able sep­a­rately, or Dis­sent 133 of­fers them as the Ul­ti­mate Pack (all four gloves) at £95, the Water­proof Pack (three gloves) at £80 or the Wind­proof Pack (three gloves) at £58.

Dis­sent 133 says its lay­er­ing sys­tem has mul­ti­ple ad­van­tages in­clud­ing the abil­ity to strip off a layer mid-ride. In the­ory you no longer need a pair of deep win­ter gloves for just a few rides a year. Nor are there an­noy­ing lin­ers turn­ing them­selves in­side-out when you take the glove off.
