Cycling clothing guide: gloves

Proper cycling gloves are important because riding can cause sore hands, no matter how softly the handlebars are padded.

The gloves have special padding that protects the hands.

Ones with gel-padded palms are a good investment.

The gel reduces vibration from the road while the glove protects your hands from cuts if you crash or fall off.
