Handske Gloves want to bring style to your hands through minimalistic and functional gloves. The company is new to the market, following a successful Kickstarter campaign, but are owned by an industry veteran from Kogel Bearings. Handske feels there is no reason to have boring gloves and is partnering with artists to accomplish exactly that.
Fit is similar to a surgical glove, thin and comfortable. The palm is synthetic leather covered with a silicon pattern for added grip. Through the snug fitment, bunching is prevented when gripping the bars. The index finger has conductive thread for use on touch screens, and the back of the hand is woven fabric to help keep things cool.
The back of the thumb has absorbent fabric to wipe your brow or dripping nose, and there’s additional protection inside the thumb. Two styles are available now, with three more coming by the end of May, and six additional by the end of June.
Mtbr already had the opportunity to ride with them on the trail and found initial performance to be excellent. Look for a detailed review coming soon.
