In the search for the lightest kit for the summer of 2021, we designed the simple and stylish SPECIALISSIMA mitt.
At only 18grams a pair (M) this is essential hand protection. The palm is made of water-resistant, vegan Suede material, that provides grip on the handlebars and remains soft next to the skin. On the back of the hand, we chose a snow-white Invista® Lycra. This is a breathable fabric with excellent mechanical stretch and minimised the amount of seams for comfort in any position on the handlebar. The thumb panel is pre-shaped for improved articulation while the padding is provided by double layer of fabric which is extended to provide wrist protection and reduces irritation.
Machine washable and durable. The palm has a contact points stitched to match drop bar ergonomics and vented centre area.
If you get a rear wheel puncture, these must be removed and stored in your jersey pocket until you can wash the oil off your hands. #protectthewhite
Like all good mitts, they should be neat fitting, a loose glove will move around and cause abrasion. Measure right around your knuckle and compare to chart below. A good fitting mitt should be pulled off one finger at a time.
