The Covert is a fairly minimalist glove, simple yet effective. They boast moisture wicking 4-way stretch fabric on the back of the hand and a Clarino synthetic suede palm. A slip on design they do away with the need for a Velcro closure system, which gives them a very clean profile. There are neoprene flex panels on the knuckles and the finger tips have silicone grip to ensure you keep those brake levers in the right place.Buy Gloves on
Slipping the Covert on and off is easy enough; personally I am a fan of this style of glove, things are very straightforward. The palm doesn’t feature any padding, so these are for the minimalist riders out there. Microfleece thumb strips are an essential feature, especially on those cold days. The Covert’s are a midweight glove, so perfect for spring and autumn. I would happily ride with them all year but I appreciate some people like a little more warmth in the winter and something lighter in the summer.Buy Gloves on
