Nashbar Matrix Gel Gloves
The hands are often an unsung element for on-the-bike comfort so give them a present with the Nashbar Matrix Gel Gloves. The strategically placed gel pads on the palm are a thing of beauty as there's no bulk at all to interfere with the feel of the bars while the pads' mesh covering provides just the right amount of grip when your tape or grips get slick from sweat or precipitation. And speaking of sweat, whisk away anything your brow (or nose for that matter) produces via a soft, microfiber wiping surface along the thumb.
  • Strategically placed low profile gel pads relieve pressure on the palm's sensitive areas
  • Synthetic palm is soft and durable
  • Easy on-off removal tab with Velcro closure for a secure, comfy fit
  • Microfiber wiping surface on thumb takes care of sweat on the brow or a drippy nose
Nashbar Matrix Gel Gloves
  • FABRIC Polyester blend back, Synthetic palm
  • WEATHERPROOF No
  • CLOSURE Velcro

            But Where's the GEL?

            These are nice gloves and have a Velcro closure. But to call them "Gel Gloves" is vastly misleading. If the "pads" have any gel at all, it is so miniscule that it might as well not be there. And to charge extra for that "feature" is outrageous!

            Comments about Nashbar Matrix Gel Gloves:

            I got these to help keep from getting numbness that comes from road shock. The glove I was replacing had almost no padding. I've had gel gloves before that did a good job. These are not those gloves. The "gel" in these gloves is almost non-existent. I have more padding in my current gloves than these "gel" gloves. Not happy with these.. returned for a refund. I'll shop locally to make sure I get something that will do the trick.

            The Gel is about 1/8 thickness of my last pair from Nashbar.

              Sadly disappointed. The Gel is about the thickness of 2 pieces of toilet paper. Nothing like my last pair that had 1/4 inch Gel pad.

                  I was expecting gel pads which would help with the impact from road ruts and cracks. What I got was a glove with almost no padding at all.
