Our Élysée glove, brings smooth, warm style to any cycle.They are meticulously hand-cut and sewn in our glove maker’s workshop. These gloves are constructed from fine grained leather with double stitching at key wear points for added durability. This hand-tanned leather is thin, supple and breathable, but also strong. After several rides, these gloves will form to the shape of your hand, creating a near second skin.
The inside of the glove has a light fleece lining which is excellent at wicking moisture to keep your hands dry and warm, and is also odour resistant. A strap with a dual popper, keeps the gloves snug at the wrist. To say I love these, is like holding a candle to the sun. Two ‘first-cut’ layers of leather, give stunning feel and protection to the Palm. An extra layer is added to the face of the knuckle for longevity and a ‘D’ pad to protect the ulnar nerve, above the inner wrist.
For 2019 stock we are now using the first cut, soft leather and have tweaked the finger length. The internal lining has been upgraded to a light and breathable fleece. The cuff is extended by 10mm and a lycra insert has been added to the adjustment cutaway of the gauntlet.
Our winter and summer gloves come in standard glove sizes. These are designed to be close fitting, so size up of you like a relaxed feel. The measurement is taken at the circumference of the hand at the knuckles. Please contact us if you have ANY questions at all about glove sizing (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Please note: acid from sweat eats away at leather over time, so it’s important to wash the gloves, particularly if you’ve sweated them through on a ride. Once washed and dried, glove balm should be applied to keep them supple.
