Endura Rapido Mitt

 

These women's gloves deliver more than their looks suggest and with a low price tag too. Endura describe the Terry wipe panel as 'monster' in size! Taking up half the back of the glove you'd be hard pressed not to enjoy wiping your nose/glasses/brow and thankfully there are no scratchy sections or rough stitching to ruin the experience.

 

Using fabrics that stretch properly to allow freedom of movement is crucial for a good fitting glove, the Rapido Mitts are well equipped here and are particularly comfortable around the wrist. The snug and contoured design provides a great fit whilst gripping the bar. The Velcro fastener, on the inside of the wrist, is much lighter and more adjustable than many we've tried.

A good grip is provided thanks to well sited, padded Silicone grips at the base of the thumb and fingers, plus additional pads for ulna protection at the heel of the palm.

 

Sizing is sensible for women's hands, with the small size fitting our child-like hands perfectly, narrow enough for a snug fit with the 4-way stretch Lycra allowing good flexibility and comfort. A handy flap between the middle fingers allows the gloves to be pulled off easily, especially useful on hot and sweaty summer days.

These mitts certainly passed the comfort test on road and mountain bike bars, their tough construction shines through and we expect them to stand up to many more miles of abuse, making them great value too!
