The Chiba Superfly is a technical Bike glove that is lightweight, while offering Chiba's protection against the numbness/pins and needles feeling Bike riders often get. Each Superfly is made with a innovative knitting technology that creates ventilation holes. The Palm is a robust MicroFiber, over Chiba's exclusive BioXcell padding. The Superfly also includes a quick pull-off aid, and has a Terrycloth Thumb to wipe off moisture while riding. Washable in Cold Water (below 85 degrees).
One question when buying Bike gloves should be whether your hands get numb, as 80% of all cyclists have problems here. In this case, a BioXCell glove from Chiba helps:
The BioXCell padding consists of an ergonomic 2-level special gel cushion that lies over the ulnar nerve in the palm area. The almost 0.8 cm thick ergonomic padding optimally protects the ulnar nerve. At the same time, the pressure points of the handlebars on the hand are changed and the pressure on the middle of the hand or carpal tunnel is greatly reduced. With BioXCell from Chiba, the numbness in the hands is gone in 80% of cases. If there are still problems with the hands despite BioXCell, the handlebars and grip position must be changed in addition to the gloves. Please also make sure that the glove is not too big, as in this case the ergonomic BioXCell padding is not positioned correctly (it is too far out) and does not work properly.
CHIBA- GLOVE MAKERS SINCE 1853
More than 160 years ago Chiba was appointed by the Austrian emperor to be the supplier of gloves for the imperial family due to the high quality of their products and their skills.
Manufacturing gloves has always been a special skill. In former times it was necessary to select the right leather, tan it, sand it down to the correct thickness, stretch it and cut it to shape. A single mistake by the glove maker meant that the entire glove was unusable. But even today the demands regarding quality, functionality and durability are still high.
