Ergon is producing gloves that protect without losing feel and control of the bike.

Over the years, gloves have developed from half-finger ones to fully cushioned gel types, to the more minimalist ones found today. What seems to be working today is a lightweight, thinly padded glove that protects, but does not take away from the feel and control of the bike.
Ergon is here with three models with varying degrees of protection. The good news is they are all made with fit and control in mind. Padding on the palm is thin but there is some armor protection on the base of the palm where an impact is most likely to occur during a crash.
The models are:
HE2 – $39.95
HA2 – $44.95
HX2 – $44.95
