This biking season, I’ve had the Truck ZRP gloves on several rides from Moab to the Uinta Mountains. From day one to now, I’ve been impressed at the quality of these gloves considering their affordable price. The goat skin leather is very soft and supple. From the palm to my fingers, the gloves fit my hands like… well… a glove.
Truck’s Velcro strap is big and beefy. So far it has not failed me.
Despite being full-fingered, leather gloves, the ZRP are remarkably cool. Even on hot rides in the desert when temperatures pushed 100 degrees, my hands never felt too sweaty. This breathability no doubt is fueled by the very lightweight material on the back of the hand.
The pads are strategically placed on the palms and heel of the hand for cushion against handlebars. I’ve found many mountain biking gloves overdo the padding, but the ZRP provides all I need for a comfortable ride.
