Our Element collection of gloves is designed to keep you warm and protected from wind and water, all without adding any bulk or restricting movement. Starting with a Gore� WINDSTOPPER� waterproof and breathable laminate, we add 100g Primaloft� for insulation from the cold. The Element 1.0 gloves are the lightest softshell gloves we make, so you get excellent flexibility and handlebar feel. The Ax Suede palm, meanwhile, provides a sure grip, even when wet, in order to keep your hands where they need to be�in control. Lastly, the rib-knit cuff is the most accommodating cuff closure we make, and it's designed to go seamlessly under a jacket cuff.
