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

      There is no closure mechanism on these gloves so you cannot snug them up to custom fit your hands plust there is not much padding in the palm area.

            Purchased these gloves and rode a few times to have one of the seams start splitting. Nashbar will take them back and refund but I am paying shipping and waiting another week. Good reason to support your local bike shop.

                I take long rides and these gloves are great. Good padding, super light and fit really well. They don't have a strap at all so it doesn't accidentally push the buttons on my smart watch. Really nice gloves.

                  Great gloves. My 2nd pair. Lightweight. Comfy. Great fit. Love that there is no Velcro wrist closure. Palm vent works well.
