Glove technology design

Whether it’s a warm insulation, a waterproof GORE-TEX membrane or a windproof GORE-TEX INFINIUM™ fabric – our range of gloves offers a variety of product technologies to keep your hands dry and warm, no matter the weather conditions.


The connection between hands and handlebar is crucial for performance, it significantly impacts comfort and potentially even safety while riding. This is justification enough for us at Gore to constantly evaluate and re-evaluate our glove materials, designs and technologies, with the goal of optimizing their performance and their positive contribution to your riding experience. New insights gathered from riders and athletes globally and new technologies have enabled us to create an entirely new and improved collection with products that serve a wide range of cycling needs.

We utilize GORE-TEX and GORE-TEX INFINIUM™ with WINDSTOPPER® product technology to add a seasonal specific style to our range, which include road and off-road products for conditions from scorching summer days, to relentlessly harsh winters.

Garments engineered with GORE-TEX fabric are durably waterproof and windproof, combined with optimized breathability — enduring products that maximize protection and comfort for the coldest, wettest rides.

GORE-TEX INFINIUM™ with WINDSTOPPER® PRODUCT TECHNOLOGY, the totally windproof, yet extremely breathable membrane blocks the wind and allows sweat to escape. This combination of protection and breathability minimizes the cold, wind chill effect while avoiding the risk of overheating when you’re working hard.



The Roll and Box finger construction provides riders which prefer long finger gloves improved dexterity and tactile feedback, by using less material, reducing wrinkling and adding comfort through strategically placed seams.

Thumb, pointer and index fingers receive the roll construction which is shaped to support the constant up and down movement of the fingers when shifting or braking. The ring finger and pinky stay smooth, comfortable and free from irritation on the bars because of the box construction.


All of our long finger gloves come with a preshaped finger construction that mimic the natural hand position and grip on the bars. This allows us to use less material, reducing wrinkles that could cause irritations on the palm.

Elastic materials and stitching allow a comfortable fit even when extending, flexing and straightening the hand.


Cyclists’ needs and demands vary significantly as it relates to glove construction, padding, and performance attributes. To address this, we offer a broad variety of glove palm designs and padding levels.
This minimalistic single layer palm construction with minimal padding creates the purist contact to the bars, for those who want to have maximum feel, feedback and tactility, while still maintaining glove durability.


The cut palm construction has an improved anatomical preshape of the palm to give a more comfortable contact to the bars.
Less material can be used with this construction to avoid irritations of the palm from wrinkles.


The reinforced and padded palm construction gives additional comfort and offers abrasion resistance for rough rides. It helps by absorbing shocks coming from constant terrain changes, bumps or impacts from the ground and prevents hand and wrist fatigue.
We use either EVA, foam or GEL for the padding which is applied to different critical zones on the palm, depending on both the type of gloves and the type of riding.


Taking your short finger gloves off after longer rides can be challenging; often times cyclists just turn the gloves inside-out to take them off, we solve this problem by including finger loops on all our short finger gloves, which make glove removal simple, and extends the service life by reducing unnecessary strain on the seams.
