A:One of the most popular insulated gloves for the bike just got an upgrade. For the coming season, the latest $40 Women’s Cyclone Gel Gloves from Pearl Izumi now have more flexible fingers and gel padding on the palm. The Japanese company says that the gel is there in order to form a bridge over the ulnar and median nerves (in response to the common problem of sensory and motor failure in cyclists’ hands). Other nice features also include tacky silicon on the index and middle fingers for grip, durable synthetic leather on the palm—which washes better than real leather when the gloves get a little funky—and a reflective stripes for visibility.
