Minimalistic gloves are all the rage right now, and for good reason. Outside of a high-speed and treacherous downhill setting, they provide plenty of protection in the event you decide to go from riding your bike to doing a handstand down the trail. Handup gloves are lightweight, yet still have a Clarino leather palm and silicone printed graphics to deliver plenty of grip without losing the feeling of a direct connection to your bike. They have a stretch cuff that eliminates the need for a bulky strap, while a sweat-wicking fabric is attached to the thumb for wiping sweat and gunk away on the toughest of days. They’re available in six different colors at $26 per pair.
