Cycling gloves for every weather condition
Attaquer has cycling gloves for every riding climate: from fingerless gloves for the hottest of days, to insulated winter cycling gloves for the coldest of mornings.
Our summer gloves offer UPF 50 protection against the sun and are made with breathable fabrics to wick sweat away from hands and handlebars.
Our mid winter cycling gloves are ideal for temperatures from 15°C down to around 0°C, with water resistant and windproof qualities.
Our thermally insulated deep winter cycling gloves will keep hands warm and dry in temperatures from 12°C down to around 0°C.
Meanwhile, it’s simple to add further protection as needed. Our cycling warmers provide the ideal companions to Attaquer cycling gloves, crafted from Italian-made Super Roubaix fabric for comfort and warmth.
Thoughtful features of Attaquer gloves
Attaquer cycling gloves offer a few key features that optimise form and function, from excellent grip to variated gel-padded palms that add comfort and control. We’ve designed gloves that are easy to slip on and off, yet are protective in all the right places against wind chill and friction. For example, our Adventure gloves include a velcro strap and neoprene wrist area to minimise distractions as you’re hitting the trails.
Our full finger gloves include touchscreen sensitive finger and thumb tips, making it easy to pull up directions or answer a call when out on a ride. And of course, our iconic F@ck Yeah designs provide inspiration with every glance down at the handlebars.
Do cycling gloves make a difference?
While it’s an entirely personal choice, many cyclists consider a pair of gloves an essential part of their kit. Whether it’s for sun protection, wind protection or to minimise distractions over a long ride, cycle gloves can offer several important advantages.
What is the point of biking gloves?
These are some of the main reasons cyclists will look to Attaquer cycling gloves.
Our gloves help to wick sweat from the hands and direct it away from the handlebars for greater contact and control on every ride. We use textiles like leather on the palm and finger pads to enhance grip and minimise slippage.
Innovative gel padding can help to reduce pressure on the ulnar, median and radial nerves in the hand and wrist for a more comfortable ride. We’ve chosen and implemented our glove fabrics carefully so they’ll effectively block wind chill and keep your hands feeling dry. Not to mention, it’s easy to wipe away sweat on the forehead with a quick swipe of the hand.
Attaquer cycling gloves are designed to provide protection against cold, sun and scrapes in the event of a crash or collision. They’re also crafted to minimise the effects of road vibration via the handlebars through their thoughtfully placed gel padding.
Do cycling gloves help with numbness?
Numbness or pain can arise when the hands grip handlebars tightly or over long periods of time, particularly on rocky and rough paths. Our designers have put a great deal of thought into how our cycling gloves can work to reduce pressure, sore points and numbness.
Tips when choosing cycling gloves
It’s worth considering size, temperature conditions and individual product features when looking for the best cycling gloves. Whether you’re looking for men’s or women’s cycling gloves, finding a good fit is essential. We offer a size guide on every product page, which is simple to check by measuring the circumference of the knuckle and the length of the hand from the bend of the wrist.
How long should bicycle gloves last?
Of course, this depends on a few factors like the quality of the gloves, their composition and how they’re used. Even with intensive use the best men's cycling gloves or women’s cycling gloves could provide great performance for 6, 12 months or beyond with proper cleaning and care.
How do you clean bike gloves?
While our fabrics are chosen for breathability and to prevent bacterial growth, all cycling gloves can benefit from regular cleaning according to their individual care instructions. Broadly speaking, our cycling gloves can be safely washed with mild liquid soap and air dried.
