Urban bicyclists’ gear often focuses on grip and resistance from the elements, but has minimal protective features. In an effort to improve on the level of protection for urban riders, Tangible’s bike gloves add features and materials to fit user needs. They are designed for frequent and sudden impacts instead of long duration, abrasion-heavy incidents. All of the technology and materials are borrowed from the motorcycle racing industry.
