These Specialzed BG Gel Gloves are great for road cyclists. They utilize BG Gel Technology, which reduces numbness in the hands by taking pressure off of the ulnar nerves. The palms are protected too, with soft BG Gel foam padding across all of the pressure zones. A really cool feature of the Specialzed BG Gel Gloves is the soft microwipe thumb, which is designed to wipe away sweat. A very useful feature indeed. Micro-width VELCRO closures allow for unrestricted wrist movement. The Specialzed BG Gel Glove retail for $35.00, and can be purchased at the Specialized online store.
