Today I did my final long ride the week before the Norwich 100. It was a great training ride, nothing ballistic here, but I got to chase down a couple of fellow riders when I was feeling fresh...and feel the humbling experience of being chased down too once my legs had a few miles on them! The weather went from cool, to hot, to wet; it really provided a great opportunity to test the HYperlights out in all conditions.
Firstly, the gloves are so light and well fitted that you don't feel them. You get a glove free feel, which I personally love, as I have always struggled with the standard stiff and bulky offering causing me discomfort, particularly in between my fingers. The HYperlight's comfort lasts mile after mile.
When the sun was out and I had a good sweat on, I was regularly wiping my brow and lip with the glove, which kept me feeling fresh and comfortable. When the sun hid, the gloves kept my paws warm enough without being the cause of sweaty hands. When it rained, everything got wet fast. But the HYperlights dried out fast after the deluge due to light weight and hybrid fabric.By the time I got into the last few miles the gloves were once again dry.
We didn't really know if such an extreme road cycling glove would appeal, until we tried it.
Ride safe, Run far...
