Oakley has a new item for mountain biking for 2011, which is the Factory glove. The minimalist slip-on design makes the glove look too weak for hard trail riding and its soft and thin material is something expected from a lightweight driving glove. However, the glove is surprisingly durable.
Sufficient airflow is provided by the lightweight fabric of the Factory. Through this, the hands of the rider are kept cool and free from dank sweat. With the thin material, riders can handle the bars with a nice feel. One amazing feature of the glove is a soft terry cloth nose-wipe on the thumb.
Durable, comfortable, and unbelievably functional, the 2011 Oakley Factory Glove is ideal for mountain biking and XC races. It comes in six color options with Wade Simmons and Brian Lopes signature editions. It is incredibly affordable as well.
