Why should I wear mountainbike gloves?
While some riders forgo wearing mountainbike gloves, they come with some practical features to improve your riding experience. First of all, they increase grip on the bars and help to avoid blisters. Some models even come with extra padding to prevent fatigue on long tours and many hours on the bike. Additionally to the full coverage, some models feature protective elements on the most exposed fingers to guard against branches and dirt.

How should mountainbike gloves fit?
Mountainbike gloves should have a snug fit without feeling restrictive in any areas. That is the best way to avoid irritating folds that may cause blisters. Plus, you will get the best grip experience possible. Also, make sure to try your gloves out in a riding position with hands around the bar and forefinger on the breaks. If you feel any tightness or restriction choose one size larger.
How do I find the right mtb glove size?
To find the right size of ION mountainbike gloves, measure the circumference on your knuckles. Thanks to elastics or adjustable velcros, the cuff will adapt automatically to your wrist size (depending on the model).
How do I care for my mountainbike gloves?
Mountainbike gloves can get smelly from time to time. Luckily, it’s really easy to keep them fresh and make them ready for many more rides. Most of the time simple handwashing with mild soap is sufficient. Please do not tumble dry your gloves.
- Specific cleaning instructions are included with each product. Please read them before washing.
- Close all Velcro fasteners before washing.
- Wash the gloves in a laundry net.
- Never machine wash gloves with real leather. You can clean them by hand with a soft brush. On top of that, you should treat the leather with special leather care products.
