Days off are for the weak.
Your fitness isn't going to improve itself while you wait for the weather to warm up, so you'd better grab the Louis Garneau Course Attack 2 Gloves and keep your training up, even if the temperatures are dropping. Garneau optimizes the Attack for riding on cool, windy fall days, so it made sure to engineer in lightweight warmth, plenty of wind protection, and efficient moisture management.
The gloves are made primarily of Polartec Light Wind Pro, a lightweight stretch fleece that offers four times more wind protection than standard fleece while maintaining 85% of standard fleece's breathability. Together with the Ergo Air X-Vent ventilation on the Clarino synthetic leather palms, this will prevent moisture from building up and turning to ice
Garneau also outfitted the Attack with its patented Biogel progressive padding, which absorbs vibration and reduces the pressure on sensitive areas of your palm. It also made the thumb of lightweight microfiber, perfect for nose and goggle wiping, and included a fitted elastic cuff and reflective details for draft protection and visibility, respectively.
- Q & A
Light material with some gel padding
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
The gloves hold well, they are a bit thin, but they have a couple gel pads on the palm that are nice. I would have liked to have more gel padding. The fleece thumb is nice to wipe off sweat or swipe that phone lock on the go.
