Last fall we had the short finger variant of Prologos CPC-Gloves in the test. [Link] Back then we were particularly impressed by the grip. In line with the new season, we have now taken a closer look at the long-finger version.
equipment and practice
The Italian saddle specialist caused a stir some time ago with a special nub pad. The pad was applied to the top models and was based on the short CPC abbreviated Connect PowerControl-Technology. It effectively prevented slipping on the saddle. Motivated by this success, the technology was also transferred to other products.
The CPC-Long-finger gloves are anatomically narrow. The upper hand is made of spandex and features the distinctive company logo. Finely sewn on the inside CPC-Nubbly pads. These are attached in such a way that the gloves do not rub during use and therefore do not leave any pressure points on the hand. In addition, the inner hand absorbs the sweat that occurs while driving, so that the hands do not slip in the glove and thus guarantee a secure grip. And the gloves have this. In contrast to the short-finger version, our test model also has pads on the fingertips. As a result, shift control is retained even on rougher surfaces.
A total of 17 pads are processed on the palm of each glove. Although these do not have the same comfort as you might know from gel pads, they are beyond any doubt in terms of grip. Even after a few weeks, they show only minor signs of wear.
With the CPC- Long-fingered gloves give you a firm grip on everything at all times. They are also more versatile than the short finger version. In addition to being used on racing bikes, they also look good off-road in cyclocross or on MTBs.
