Cycling is inseparable from riding equipment, such as: cycling clothes, goggles, helmets, face towels, gloves, etc. Today, let's briefly talk about the role gloves play in riding. outdoor sports gloves
The main functions of cycling gloves are shock absorption, anti-skid, and protect your fingers from injury when you fall.
Cycling gloves are divided into full finger and half finger. Many people have suggested that this is the way to do it, but is it right or wrong to do so?
Also right and wrong! Why do you say that?
The bumps and vibrations generated during the process protect the palms, so that the palms will not be numb due to long-term vibrations and bumps. When cycling, you tend to sweat easily. The same goes for the palm.
Generally, riding gloves have some small ventilation holes in the center of the palm, which have good air permeability. The palm part of the gloves is generally made of non-slip materials, which can increase the friction of the gloves. Therefore, riding with gloves It will effectively avoid some symptoms without gloves, such as: sweating, slippery palms, unable to hold the handlebars, etc.
In the above two points, there is no obvious difference between full-finger and half-finger gloves.
As for the protection of the palm in the event of a crash, full-finger gloves are no problem. But half-finger gloves will not work. The fingers on the outside suddenly come into contact with the ground, can they not be injured? No!
Similarly, half-finger gloves can't play a role in preventing sun exposure in summer (especially long-distance exposure), and they will not play a role in keeping warm in spring and autumn (early spring, late autumn).
Therefore, to sum up, when riding, especially when riding or riding long distances, please wear full-finger gloves, and try not to wear half-finger gloves.
Of course, full-finger gloves are not as good as half-finger gloves in some places, that is, taking things from pockets while riding, or operating a mobile phone, in terms of the convenience and flexibility of fingers, half-finger gloves are slightly less. Therefore, the key to what gloves to wear when riding depends on which aspects you choose.
