Glove FAQ

Where are the gloves made?

The gloves were designed in Texas and Montreal and manufactured in Pakistan.

Why leather?

Because leather is a natural material, it performs great and looks awesome. And all your friends will be jealous of your cool gloves.

Is the glove leather the same as the saddle and bar tape leather?

No. The glove leather has different characteristics but is the same very high quality.

What are the specs on the leather?

The leather is full grain deer-tanned cow leather, with an approximate weight of 2-2.5oz and thickness of 1-1.5mm

Is the leather waterproof? Stainproof?

No and no. The gloves will behave like an old pair of gardening gloves. The more you wear them, the more they will conform to your hands and take on a unique patina, making them entirely your own. IMO, this is one of the best things about these gloves. They all start out the same but are all unique in the end.

How long will the gloves last?

It’s hard to say. I have testers who have used them for 5000+ miles and they are still going strong.

Will leather gloves make my hands more sweaty?

No. The gloves have been tested for nearly 2 years by several dozen testers all over the country. There have been no complaints about over heating.

Why isn’t there any padding?

Padding is a very personal thing and what ever thickness I chose would be wrong for most people. Instead of me deciding how much padding you need, you can decide on your own by adding padding to your bars.

But I really need padding!

After the gloves conform to your hands, you will be surprised at how little padding you need. Trust me on this. Try them.

What size should I get?

They are sized similar to Pearl Izumi or Giro gloves, so get the same size as your regular cycling gloves. If you are between sizes, then get the smaller size. They run very slightly large and will conform to your hands over a few rides.
