Best cycling gloves 2024 | Cyclingnews

Rapha Core Mitts

The best cycling gloves, or track mitts, as they are commonly known, have been worn by cyclists for decades to protect their hands and provide extra comfort on the bike. The humble track mitt or short-fingered glove is one of the few pieces of cycling equipment that has stayed the same over the years. 

We use our hands constantly when cycling. Whether it is gripping the handlebar tape and gear and brake levers, wiping our faces, drinking, repairing mechanicals, and wrenching on the bars when sprinting or climbing a steep hill. Cycling gloves can protect the skin on our hands, particularly in the event of a crash, and add grip and comfort. Winter cycling gloves do the job of keeping our hands warm in the cold, but when summer arrives, gloves can still serve an important purpose.
