On the Trail
The Fall Line XC is a lightweight glove and it feels easy on your hands when you slip them on. The soft palm area feels snug and doesn’t bunch like some other gloves when you have been holding onto the bar for a long time on long rides. The mesh backing ensures airflow around your hands keeping them cool in the summer months. The silicone on the palm area as well as the breaking finger is a nice touch and ensures you won’t ever slip off the bars. The Fall line XC is a simple but effective design.
Lightweight summer glove that keeps your hands cool and offers plenty of grip.
