Gripgrab - Windster
Go riding - whatever the weather
The Windster Windproof Winter Gloves provide a unique fit and feel, due to its box finger construction with the stitching on the outside of the fingers. The palm is made from an artificial suede material, which is durable, yet soft and even waterproof. On the inside, a comfortable lining gives you excellent insulation, while the knitted cuff seals out the elements completing the overall look and feel of this functional glove.
The Windster also offers you excellent breathability so as to avoid the feeling of clamminess as warmth builds. Key features also include a sweat wiper and touchscreen compatibility to make it the best cycling glove for those changeable conditions of autumn and winter.
DoctorGel Protection - Numbness nullified
The DoctorGel™ system has been developed in collaboration with both active athletes and doctors. GripGrab gloves with DoctorGel™ are designed to reduce the feeling of pins and needles in the fingers secondary to compression of the nerves innervating the hand. The symptoms can present as light tingling in the fingers but can progress to more severe numbness and paresthesias. The condition is described in the literature as “Cyclist’s palsy” and the problem arises when a nerve to the hand is compressed between the handlebars and the underlying bone.
Both mountain bike and road bike riders, regardless of level of experience, may suffer temporarily from nerve compression. A prospective clinical study has shown that 70% of long-distance riders experience symptoms related to nerve compression. Doctor Gel has been developed specifically to help combat this nerve compression when riding.
