The Barrier are a highly insulated, cycling specific, winter glove. Keeping cyclist’s hands warm in 35 countries.
Next to the skin is a soft, thin fleece lining offers loads of warmth; Around the outside of that there’s a polyurethane membrane that provides the weatherproofing and stops ALL wind from stripping finger heat. The bulk of the insulation comes courtesy of 100g HyTex internal glove, while the final outer layer is a combination of 5 specific, hard-wearing synthetic fabrics; each chosen for durability, malleability or reflective qualities.
The seams are on the outside of the liner rather than pressed up against your fingers so there’s no irritation there. The lowers are synthetic leather with silicon printing on both the palms and the fingers that gives you a decent amount of grip to prevent hands slipping on wet bar tape or levers.
Upgraded visibility and inner lining for breathability for 2020
