One of the biggest aerodynamic drags on cyclists is skin. This is why we believe these full-fingered gloves may be worth an extra watt or two over conventional mitts. Moreover, the ribbing ensures the easy flow of air over the hands. In a world of marginal gains, this could be the difference between being on the podium or not. If the aero benefits don't grab you, then these gloves are perfect for the late sprint or early autumn.
