WHAT MAKES A GOOD SKI GLOVE?
It is not so easy to find the optimal ski glove. Every person feels differently and therefore attaches importance to different factors. Key factors include fit, warmth level, water resistance, breathability and finger feel. A good glove is characterised above all by the fact that your hands are neither cold nor overheated or sweat excessively after a long day of skiing. A good glove is therefore breathable and yet waterproof. It should be comfortable but also robust, light but also durable.
GLOVE OR MITTEN?
Mittens tend to be warmer than finger gloves and are therefore particularly suitable for those who get cold fingers quickly. This type of ski glove reliably keeps you warm and dry, but significantly restricts your mobility. Gloves have the advantage that you can move your fingers individually, but they don't keep your hands as warm as mittens.
OUR TRIGGER SYSTEM
Our trigger click system gives you a direct connection between glove and pole, improving control while skiing. Your ski pole is firmly attached to your hand, so pushing requires much less force and the pole can no longer get lost during the lift. Thanks to the self-triggering safety mechanism, our trigger system can also prevent injuries.
HOW TO FIND THE RIGHT SKI GLOVE SIZE?
Here, you will find a step-by-step guide on how to determine your glove size. The glove fits ideally when there is some air between the material and your skin. Gloves that are too tight do not insulate optimally. If the gloves are too wide, you have no feeling and therefore no stability. Pay particular attention to your thumbs and index fingers when trying them on. If the glove feels right in these areas and there remains a thin layer of air even when you clench your hand into a fist, you have found the right gloves.
