Sweat and moisture shouldn’t get in the way of a firm, flexible grip: the new uvex sumair’s material mix lives up to it promise.
Sweat and moisture are part of any athletic performance. All the more so in riding, as the rider’s hands are in contact with perspiration from both rider and horse.
The new uvex sumair gloves combat this problem with high-tech materials. The gloves’ breathable mesh material generously covering the outer hand and thumb wicks away any moisture that may accumulate. On the palm and between the fingers, an equally thin, high-quality polyurethane ensures extreme resistance to slipping and abrasion, offering a firm grip whilst maintaining sensitivity. No matter how hard your workout is, these gloves will keep you in control.
Their highly functional material composition also lends them a unique, stylish look: glossy synthetic leather, polyurethane and mesh in a range of colours. Black detailing and a clean sporty line make these gloves icons of style. The uvex sumair also has a short cuff for a smart look, even in warm weather.
Available in black.
Do my riding gloves fit properly?
Anyone who rides on a regular basis knows that gloves not only offer greater comfort, but also a more secure grip on the reins. A proper fit and sufficient grip ensure a precise and tactile use of the reins.
Important when trying on: the optimal fit. The fingers should fit entirely inside the glove without leaving too much space inside the material. Wrinkles on the ring finger indicate that the fit is too loose, which in turn will limit control of the reins.
To determine if the length of the glove is correct, intertwine the fingers and press the material all the way down. Then look at the seams between the fingers to see if the length is correct and the glove lines up with the hand. The glove should also fit securely on the wrist. Simply close the velcro and check the fit.
Hands remain closed when riding – the glove should not apply too much pressure. For an optimal use of the reins, the rider’s hand needs to be soft and flexible. As a result, the glove should not cause any pressure points. To find out, form a fist with your hand and see if you feel any pressure points or if the glove fits comfortably firm and secure.
How do I wash my riding gloves?
Because hands tend to sweat particularly in the summer and riding gloves often get dirty, they should be washed regularly to maintain an optimal, secure grip.
A few care tips
Important: close the velcro strap, matching up the patches perfectly, to ensure that nothing gets stuck in the velcro when in the washing machine – so that the velcro closure continues to work properly. We also recommend placing the gloves in a laundry bag before washing them in the machine.
Specific instructions for hand and machine-washing can be found inside each uvex glove. When washing by hand, use a mild soap and water. Important: allow the gloves to air-dry and do not iron.
If gloves are only slightly dirty, the surface can also be wiped clean with a lint-free cloth.
