A hand stitched, natural leather cycling glove which will mould you to your hand.
The all new Liberté glove embraces both traditional imagery, contemporary design and natural leathers.
There are times when we look to technology for solutions. Regardless of how many glove designs we tried, we kept returning to an all leather glove for long term comfort and protection. Dual thickness leathers, tapered wrist and naturally vented.
Just two rides and these will match your body, as the natural materials take the form of your hand. The gloves are breathable and the goatskin (more subtle than cowhide) wicks sweat extremely effectively. Good mitts are worth their weight in gold and we have worked hard to offer a premium, hand-made, all leather mitt, at the price of a synthetic glove.
These are FULLY hand cut and sewn so will have small differences (character) from something robot made. The palm is lightly padded by adding an extra layer of leather and have perforations on the fingers and knuckle holes to assist with ventilation. The gloves are naturally, dyed dark Green leather. Goatskin is often referred to as nature’s strongest leather. It has very high tensile-strength and abrasion-resistant properties, but has excellent softness and is lightweight.
The leather will bond and stretch to your hand after a few rides, so should feel tight and snug around the fingers when first put on. Once matched they will be your new favourite thing.
A good track mitt is removed by pulling off inside out.
OUR SUSTAINABILITY PROMISE
All the leather used by galibier for its gloves is a by-product of the food, wool and dairy industries and a completely renewable resource.
