Louis Garneau is known more for road apparel than mountain bike gear, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t know its way around the trails, too. Exhibit A is the Rover Glove, a midweight mitt made from a stretchy blend of spandex and neoprene and finished with a Clarino synthetic leather palm for durability and sensitivity. Sensitivity doesn’t mean flimsiness, though; the Rover has padded knuckles and D3O impact protection on the outside of the hand so you can punch trees or take spills without serious damage, and Ergo Air ventilation that’s specifically designed to breathe well when you’re gripping handlebars. The fingers are touchscreen compatible, so you can Strava and selfie like a legend, and the thumb has a microfiber panel for nose-and sweat-wiping excellence.
