Ideal for traditionalists or techies, Nike cycling gloves feature classic fingerless mitt styling paired with cutting-edge materials to improve moisture wicking and air ventilation. Although Nike is traditionally regarded as a leader in other sports areas, Nike cycling gloves are durable and as good as or better than the competition. Designed for warm weather riding, Nike cycling gloves feature strategically positioned padding to increase comfort and eliminate bulk. Built-in terry cloth forefingers on the thumb and index fingers of specially designed gloves absorb excess moisture to create an effective, integrated brow wipe. Small features, such as reinforced seams and a pull-tab for easy removal, increase overall functionality and durability.
Nike cycling gloves can be machine washed and dried, which is a must with an integrated brow wipe. Standard glove sizes are offered for specially designed men’s and women’s cycling gloves. All sizes are based on the circumference of the hand measuring around the knuckles, but excluding the thumb. Many riders suggest going with a size larger than you normally would as Nike cycling gloves tend to run small. Men’s Nike cycling gloves are available in:
• Small 18-21cm
• Medium 20-23cm
• Large 23-26cm
• X-Large 26-28
• XX-Large 28cm+
The £15 Nike Swoosh Cycling Glove features fingerless, mitt styling with vented mesh palms for improved moisture control and thermal regulation. Unlike traditional leather-palmed gloves, the entry-level Nike Swoosh Cycling Glove features a polyurethane-coated palm grip and minimal padding in all the right places for excellent comfort and improved durability. Nike’s proprietary moisture wicking Dri-FIT™ fabric, which is used to create the back of the Nike Swoosh Cycling Glove, provides enhanced breatheability and a flexible, non-restrictive fit.
Nike’s Dri-FIT™ material is also featured extensively in the company’s Dri-FIT™ Cycling Gloves and Lightweight Cycling Gloves, which are priced around £17. Featuring non-bulky construction and lightweight moisture-wicking materials, these Nike cycling gloves provide comfort and protection in one package.
Priced at £19, Nike Pro cycling gloves feature padded palms with integrated aeration holes and specialised padding to provide the best performance and comfort to each part of the hand. Reflective trim, terry-cloth thumb wipes, microfibre side vents, synthetic Lorica leather palms and Nike Sphere Dry fibres are combined in the Nike Pro to provide a high level of non-bulky performance and impact protection.
The £25 Elite model is the ultimate in Nike cycling gloves. Featuring patterned-silicone Magnigrips, Nike Sphere Dry fabric and vented palms paired with soft microfibre mesh. Terry-cloth fingers, Lorica leather palms, reflective stripes and breathable, Cordura-reinforced fingers provide a great combination of protection and flexibility.
Nike cycling gloves are ideal for all-season and warm-weather riding with excellent moisture wicking capabilities and improved ventilation. For light recreational riding or challenging race conditions, Nike cycling gloves are suitable for riders shopping for traditional fingerless mitts with modern moisture wicking technology and engineered fibres.
