MTB Gloves not only add more protection to your hands but also improve your grip on the handlebars and reduce blisters! As we ride on rocks here in the United Arab Emirates, It is very much recommended you use full finger gloves. Half-finger gloves are perfect for short trails and hot-weather riding (True) but once your hands land on sharp rocks and thorns you will wish you had full finger gloves!
When buying gloves please make sure they are durable (A mix of leather, synthetic fabric and rubber), they also need to be breathable to give your hands room to cool down and not sweat too much. A great addition to the gloves will be the extra padding filled with gel to give you that extra bumps and shocks protection you need for our trails.
