The perfect balance of warmth and low bulk for endurance sports.
Beware a glove that makes you sweat too much, you have to stow away, or you can't eat with.
There is a lot of functionality in simplicity. Stripping away all the features you don't need can leave you with a product that is many times more useful. When we started making the original Duraglove™, the idea was "Hey, we just want a glove we can ride hard with in cooler weather." The gloves on the market insulated to the point they ended up overheating us on climbs to the point we had to remove them or they became drenched in sweat. They were over done. We created our version of the glove, trimmed, tested, revised, and ultimately had a winner.
How big of a winner, we didn't know. Our gloves have been used to so many World Cup races and one day Classics that we've lost count. What the pros still tell us makes us feel pretty good about our original concept. Each Spring, they say things like "We try the other gloves, but we always go back to the DeFeet's because we can wear them all day, we don't get too hot or too cold, and we can even leave them on to reach in our pockets, open food and eat it." Hooray for warmth, dexterity, and practical design.
