Quick look: Adventure Spec Alpine Windproof off-road gloves
“Feel everything apart from the wind” say Adventure Spec of their new Alpine Windproof glove for off-road and adventure riding.
Off-road and adventure riding specialists Adventure Spec have added to their own brand range with a new all-weather, off-road designed glove.
The new Alpine Windproof Glove is designed to give off road feel on the handlebars but with enough wind protection to stay warm.
Alpine Windproof Glove technical highlights:
- Windproof polyester and elastane membrane provide windchill protection
- Amara fabric gives the feel of leather without degrading in the wash
- 110g / 3.9oz
- Foam knuckle inserts
- Conductive touch screen finger tips
- Rubber grip pattern on palm and fingers for increased control
- Easy on pull tab
Adventure Spec say the Alpine model is a medium weight glove designed to strike the right balance between weather protection and control.
Off-road riders know that the ideal glove is a difficult one to actually pin down. What works in the daytime desert is no use in the winter snow. Good feel of your handlebar controls is important off road though, especially for when the going gets technical. What's good about this breand is an inherent knowledge of riding in all conditions which means this gloves has been designed by riders out in all conditions.
Constructed with a polyester and elastane membrane, this three season glove protects your hands from windchill in all but the coldest environments. Weather protection is predominantly positioned on the back of the hands and fingers whilst the palm and fingertips use Amara fabric that mimics the feel of thin leather without degrading in the wash.
Advanced conductive fabric is sewn into the finger tips providing easy touchscreen usage without ever wearing off they claim, helping you feel everything apart from the wind.
