We've just launched some gloves which have been getting great feedback - the Roubaix Grippy Gloves. You can find them at www.lewiskit.com under TechnicalKIT

Cheers
I like the look of those grippy gloves, I could use them when cycling as well... what exactly is Roubaix fabric? Is it breathable?

Thanks

Dave

Hi - yes they're designed for spring/autumn cycling too - or good as liner gloves when it is baltic. We've designed them as multi-sport gloves (I hate that phrase but you know what I mean) and they are used by our Team LewisKIT who do mainly adventure races (like the Hebridean Challenge this year).

Roubaix is the fabric that thick winter cycling tights are made of - similar to Powerstretch - so very breathable and warm when wet (and they don't melt on a hot trangia pan!).

Ron Hill do bright yelolow ones if your really not a shy person
I've got the yellow ones - they've very visible and very good as a running glove - providing enough warmth during the first couple of miles of a run while the blood is still only just starting to pump.

However, for cycling to/from a run they are nowhere near warm enough - definitely need some windproofing for that!

Hi all,
I've spent money on dedicated gloves before. Never again. A pair of old socks does the job for me. Inelegant yes, but I can live with that.

Best wishes,
Ash
