Bontrager's Rhythm Elite Gloves are technical gloves aimed at the all-mountain rider. The synthetic-leather palms are pieced together for a no-bunch fit. Hallelujah. The backs are super tough, able to withstand brush strikes and add a little crash protection while remaining breathable. Silicone grips on the fingers keep your grip on your levers, and the hook-and-loop closures give you a custom fit.
