Dakine Women's Aura Gloves
Who's this item for: Female riders who are chasing a remedy to sore hands. Regardless of riding style, sore, tired hands can bring a great day to a short end.
Palm Style: The Aura Womens Bike Gloves feature a breathable, durable silicone mesh palm that is laden with 2mm gel padded. The gel padding is focussed at the heel of the palm as well as the soft tissue located above the distal traverse.
Materials: The shell of the glove is a lightweight, moisture wicking, 4-way stretch airmesh. This stitches into the gel laden durable silicone mesh palm. The entire glove has Polygiene® odor control technology that will let you stretch out those laundry days.
The tech side of the materials are:
- Shell: 43% Polyester, 36% Nylon, 13% Spandex, 8% Polyurethane
- Palm: 47% Polyethylene, 28% Polyurethane, 25% Nylon
- Padding: 50% Polyester, 43% Butylene, 7% Styrene
Additional Protection: Yup. The 2mm gel pads featured in the palm help immensely if you have a bit of a bingle.
Closure or Slip-on: An adjustable hook and loop closure system is found here. There is also a silicone gripper tab located at the bottom-centre point of the palm to help with pulling the gloves on.
Touch Screen Compatible: You got it! Send all the messages you like while still wearing your favorite pair of gloves.
Sweat Wipe Included: There is a microfleece thumb wipe that works well for sweat.
Pros: The 2mm gel padding doesn't sounds like much but when it's well placed (like this) it can make a real difference to hand fatigue.
Cons: These are a great glove! If you're after something that feels closer to the bar, they won't be for you.
