Riding trails with big features requires a few things--technique, strength, and dexterity. While the Pearl Izumi Summit Glove won't instantly make you stronger, it will help you out by ensuring you have plenty of dexterity to control your bars and levers, from brakes to droppers. The anatomical fit works with a stretchy material that moves with your hand, and the Summit features a synthetic leather palm and silicone fingertips to ensure you can maintain traction on your grips and shifters. The Neoprene back protects your knuckles from overgrown trails and the occasional fall. A hook-and-loop closure secures the fit without squeezing you uncomfortably, and the terry thumb swatch lets you wipe away sweat, blood, tears--whatever your bike brings out of you.
