Tactile feedback, lightweight protection, and overall comfort were the primary focal points of the Equipe RS Aero FF gloves, each of which has been addressed through careful textile development and patterning. The streamlined “no wrinkle” silhouette comes courtesy of seven individual panels that have been cut to form a curved 3D shape, mimicking the intricate anatomical structure of the human hand as it grips the bars.
At the back of the hands we applied our Breezer Tex, an ultralight woven fabric with mesh-like structure, which promotes breathability and delivers an ultrasoft feel. Strategically positioned pads on the palm-wrapped in perforated synthetic leather-deliver light support and protection, without blocking necessary feedback from the bar. The resulting gloves create a barely there layer, free of bulky fasteners and fabrics, for a smooth low-volume fit.
- Breezer Tex: An ultralight woven textile with mesh-like structure that promotes breathability, constructed with thin yarns to keep the backs of the hands cool and dry.
- Perforated Synthetic Leather: A durable, lightweight material that promotes grip, while also supporting and protecting the hand.
- Palm Padding: Strategically positioned pads flex with hand to eliminate hot spots and bunching.
- Anatomic Cut: “No wrinkle” construction creates a 3D curved structure, made possible using three separate textiles and seven panels.
