I met the folks from Spenco at Sea Otter this year. They are makers of cycling gloves with a new technology called SHOCK-TEC.
What is SHOCK-TEC? It’s a patented technology designed by neurologist, Dr. A. Robert Spitzer. Their gloves feature a unique patented groove over the carpal tunnel nerve that reduces shock and hand numbness. It’s perfect for those jarring descents or epic rides. For more information on Shock-Tec visit www.shocktek.com.
These high performance, full finger gloves are well ventilated and are anatomically pre-curved for maximum comfort. I used these gloves at Woodward West for a downhill race. It was perfect as the padded palms provided comfort for the jarring course. It was also the ideal glove for the warm temperatures at Tehachapi, CA. During our race, it was well in the 80s and the glove was just right.
These gloves retail for $27.99. Spenco offers a One-Year Unconditional Guarantee. Your money back if you’re not completely satisfied with their gloves. For more information, visit www.mtbseries.com.
