2013-08-16 11:57:40 - Drawing on decades of experience, outdoor specialist Extremities® uses technology forged at the peak of Mount Everest to offer cyclists the ultimate in protection.
With design influences from its sister brand, Terra Nova Equipment , whose products have been used by the military and British Antarctic Survey, Extremities® benefits from the latest design innovations.
Featuring cutting-edge technology, the MB Glove from Extremities® provides a high quality glove that can be used throughout the seasons.
Perfect for cooler mornings, or when cycling at higher altitudes, the MB Glove has structured holes in the side of the palm, strategically positioned to help create air flow and prevent sweating.
Made from WINDSTOPPER® material, the glove offers protection from bitter winds, while maintaining breathability.
Carolyn Budding, a managing director of Extremities® said: “The MB glove is one of our top products for cyclists and features a range of highly technical features.
neoprene cuff on the glove gives comfort and supports the wrist when cycling, which can be particularly useful when mountain biking or off-roading.
“This is also the reason why the MB glove has strategic padding in the palm of the glove. It helps to increase comfort, but also provides shock absorbency.
“In addition, the Velcro wrist strap offers extra wind protection, and helps to ensure that the glove stays in place when riding.”
Amongst the technical specifications, the glove also features a durable silicon print that can be found on the palm and fingers, helping to increase grip on the handlebars.
For particularly windy days, an absorbent fabric is incorporated into the thumb that can be used for a handy ‘nose wipe’.
Reflective trims are an additional design feature, helping to increase visibility – particularly when cycling in conditions with low lighting.
Extremities® stocks a range of clothing accessories for cyclists. For more information on Extremities® products, or to buy online visit www.extremities.co.uk
