Do these Gloves Count as Multi-Sport?
Contributed by Kelly Kessler, Terry Marketing Communications Manager
An essential component of any cycling kit, gloves can play a key role in your comfort and therefore enjoyment of the ride. As Spring begins to bloom and the wheels are ready to roll once again (yes, I admit, I am a fine weather cyclist and let the skis navigate the snow), my go-to glove is the Full Finger WINDSTOPPER® Glove. It provides enough warmth and keeps the wind out, just as the name says, while the gel padding works to diffuse road shock. However, I recently learned something new about my go-to gloves – they make great lawn and garden gloves, too!
After a recent wind storm pushed yard clean up to the top of the list, I went searching for my garden gloves, and none to be found (kind of like that missing sock that you know is lurking somewhere). So instead I geared up with my trusty Full Finger cycling gloves to rake and prep the spring beds and clear away the fallen branches.
Holy cow! For the first time, my hands managed to stay unscathed from blisters and callouses, thanks to those magical little gel pads in the palms of my hands and a comfortable streamlined fit. Talk about relief after an afternoon of heavy yard work! From this year forward, forget the garden gloves – it’s cycling gloves for me… and now, I don’t have to worry about a myriad of missing and mismatched garden gloves. Talk about handy.
