The hand is among the most complicated of body parts, with 27+ bones and extreme ranges of motion on every plane. Cyclists’ hands are also positioned at the leading edge of the bicycle, where they absorb shock and vibrations, and receive the brunt of wind and chill. Cold hands can compromise shifting and overall comfort, cause debilitating numbness, and result in a poor riding experience.
Shimano takes the rider-to-bike control interface very seriously. And, just like we design our shift levers starting from the complex ergonomics of the hand, we do exactly the same when designing Shimano Fusion Concept Gloves.
For 2017, we have updated our Advanced 3D shape to better conform to the natural curve of the human hand. Less fabric, no bunching — a more secure, form-fitting control lever interface.
The new Anatomic 3D pre-curved glove patterning provides a stable fit for greater bike control while reducing wrinkles and excess material on the palms.
Non-slip silicone and stretch gusset ensures confident handling. The new synthetic leather makes the gloves feel as good as they look.
On select models, extra-long cuffs with Velcro tab closures hold warmth in at low temperatures.
The super 3D gloves have been designed to grip easily with impactful visual.
Elegant, embossed-textured synthetic leather palms with stretch gussets provides easy finger motion and bike control.
Bike handling starts with the hands, and maintaining wrist range-of-motion for power and control is critical with the added bulk of insulated gloves. Shimano Fusion Concept Anatomic 3D design factors in materials to create a seamless rider-to-bike connection, even in cold-weather applications.
