How do you determine size for Drop Bars?
Sizing the Bar Mitts is based more on girth than hand
size. The difference from small to medium and medium to
large is about 1" around the opening where you slide
your hands in and out of the Mitts.
If you are tall but thin, I would lean towards a small
to medium. If you are thick and husky, I would suggest a
medium to large. I am 5' 8", 160 pounds and use a small.
When it is cold, I want my forearm to fill the hole as much
as possible reducing air from getting sucked out.
How do you determine size for Mountain / Flat Bars?
One Size Fits All - Works with regular or varying thickness
of cycling gloves or no gloves.
Large - Works with heavier and bulkier gloves and clothing
for the colder climates.
Do Bar Mitts replace gloves?
No, but it drastically reduces the required glove thickness,
increasing dexterity. Some even go without gloves.
How is it getting in and out of the Bar Mitts?
Getting in and out of the Bar Mitts is a natural movement.
The mitts stay open so you can slide your hand in and out
with no problem.
How should they be washed?
