POC Index Flow Gloves - $54.95

For all the brawny beauty of POC's downhill gloves, some of us find ourselves preferring something a bit lighter, more flexible, and with a more sensitive feel for the bar. This could be why we're bullish on the POC Index Flow Gloves. They're just that bit more normal than the DH versions so we reach for them, not on occasion, but all the time as part of our normal kit. What they offer is some knuckle protection not found in other gloves and a lightweight comfortable fit. POC really delivers with the Index Flow. These gloves have soft pads on the second and third knuckles of the two outer fingers of each hand, which makes them more flexible in general and movement in the fingers is a bit more independent. The back of the hand is composed of a breathable nylon mesh. The palm uses a synthetic suede, but it's textured for a positive grip in all conditions. The gloves are secured in place thanks to a full wraparound Airprene cuff and a soft Velcro strap. And while it's built for the extreme set, it's still light and dexterous enough for XC applications that require a little something extra. The Index flow is even touchscreen-compatible, so you can answer important work calls during your ride (not recommended). The POC Index Flow Gloves come in Bohrium Red and Uranium Black. They're available in sizes XS through XXL. - $54.95
