Yesterday I failed to make a turn and rode into a thorny bush, which cut my hands.
I have often feared similar situations. For example, when descending, I often need to take a difficult line, in order to evade some hanging vegetation in one half of the fire road. I fear that a wound on the wrist at high speed can make me lose control.
So I am looking for some kind of protective gloves. I do not need any padding on the inside. Rather, I am looking for:
- Cut resistance. To resist thorns on the trail and cuts from sharp rock, should I find myself on the ground.
- Breathability. Riding for 10 hours in the sun is already exhausting, the gloves should not wick sweat and become wet rags.
Does such a product exist? What features and marketing slang to look for when purchasing?
