Gloves are essential accessories for cycling, offering protection and comfort during long bike rides. They are made from lightweight, breathable materials to enhance grip and provide protection against vibrations. Some models also feature Velcro fasteners for a customized wrist fit.
Are cycling gloves really necessary for cycling? 
 
Yes, cycling gloves are essential for cycling, as they protect against shocks and vibrations, as well as providing better grip on the handlebars. They help prevent blisters and numbness in the hands during long rides and can be fitted with reflective zones for better visibility on the road—a real safety bonus.
What's the difference between short and long cycling gloves? 
 
Short cycling gloves are designed to cover only the palm of the hand, making them ideal for summer outings when heat is a factor. Some cyclists prefer short gloves for how they allow you to grip and feel the handlebars. Long cycling gloves, also called full-finger gloves, cover not only the palm but also all the fingers. They offer better protection, including against the cold, making them ideal for mountain biking and winter or cool-weather outings.
How do I choose the right size of cycling gloves? 
 
To choose the right size of cycling gloves, measure the circumference of your hand. Use a tape measure and measure around the widest part of your palm, not including your thumb. Then refer to the size guide to find the glove that's right for you. It's important to choose a size that offers a snug but comfortable fit, to ensure good grip and ideal protection.
