What makes these midweight gloves special is that there is no tradeoff between insulating warmth and handlebar feel, making them indispensable for fall and early spring riding. Pearl Izumi starts with 60g Primaloft Gold w/Crosscore technology on the back of the hand, which incorporates Aerogel particles for maximum warmth with minimal bulk. The Ax Suede Laredo palm is insulation-free; creating a glove that insulates you from the elements, not control of the bike. The main body fabric provides wind protection with excellent dexterity and the synthetic leather palm makes the glove as grippy as it is durable. A very sensitive insulated glove!
