Louis Garneau Challenger II Gloves
The Louis Garneau Challenger gloves (also known as the Soutenir glove) are a must-have for warm weather riding. The ventilation is superb via Garneau's Ergo Air concept with mesh paneling on the palm as well as a super-lightweight, moisture-wicking back. Regarding comfort, the Challenger II gloves utilize Biogel padding on the palm to maximum effect as the gel reduces pressure on nerves plus absorbs vibrations. The elastic cuff provides a snug, secure fit and the microfiber thumbs provide a convenient means to wipe away sweat.
  • Biogel padding reduces pressure on ulnar and median nerves plus absorbs vibrations for the ultimate in comfort
  • Ergo Air technology provides means to evacuate palm moisture via mesh panels
  • Pullers at fingers make it easy to remove gloves
  • Elastic cuff ensures a secure fit and easy on/easy off
  • Microfiber thumb is optimized for moisture absorption

  • Padding not very thick

Best Uses

Comments about Louis Garneau Challenger II Gloves:

These fit nice and have little tabs on some fingers to help remove them. However the padding on the palms is not as thick as my previous gloves. This allows more road vibration thru to my wrists and arms.

    Comments about Louis Garneau Challenger II Gloves:

    I ride when I can, a couple for few hundred miles a week, not really fast, but I like comfortable gloves. I have a had good luck with LG gloves, and these are the best I have bought--I literally did buy three more pair- ( set for a few seasons now.) These are lightweight gloves, good for the summer, and are lightly padded---not for you if you like really thick palms. Also, they are pull-on, no tabs or velcro---I don't mind because the feel so good on my hands I forget I am wearing them.

          Comments about Louis Garneau Challenger II Gloves:

          These are really a very minimalist glove. Think I want the look of wearing a cycling glove without any of the benefit of wearing a cycling glove. Very difficult to take off and not that easy to put on. There is an inherent wrinkle in this design and it shows in the picture on the inside of the thumb. Wrinkles equal sore spots or blisters. The padding is nearly nonexistent. These would not be beneficial for distance rides and will be relegated to the give away pile or maybe packed away as a last resort backup on the bike.

              Comments about Louis Garneau Challenger II Gloves:

              I am returning this product having not worn. The appearance and feel of these gloves is that there is very little protective padding to help prevent hand numbness during rides, (my main problem). The Nashbar Ergo grips are a great help, but, gloves with ample padding are necessary to help with numbness and pain. I found such gloves that were designed for the construction trades. Impacto brand, nylon-lycra tool grip finger-less glove with grain leather and viscolas palm/web design. Every bike glove I've been looking at are pretty much worthless, compared to this glove. Pain and numbness now gone.
