The Lightness 2 Glove is sectioned into two parts, the front and the rear. The front section has a Clarino™ palm for grip and comfort. This washable fabric looks and feels like natural leather but is more durable, retains softness when wet and offers far superior breathability. A large silicon graphic acts as the gripping mechanism for a sure hold on the bars. This functional graphic adds some style points as well. The rear section of the Lightness glove is constructed from one solid panel of Thermoflex Light. For those of you who are new to this fabric, Thermoflex allows for simultaneous breathability, warmth and elasticity. It's the perfect trilogy for the rear panel of a glove. The last detail is the simple stretch cuff with a pull zone which makes getting the gloves on and off an easy task. For the proper condition,s we would say these are best of show. The Lightness 2 run true to size with improved curvature and ergonmics.
