First look - Richa Ravine race gloves

Smart summer racey gloves from Richa on test

Richa Ravine gloves

IT'S NOT getting any cooler out there, so we're turning to the most vented cooling kit we can find for riding. So we're giving these new Richa Ravine race gloves a go, to see how they perform.

They've got a full leather construction, with hard carbon knuckle protection, extra vents on the fingers, and wrist/cuff closures for extra security. And at just £45, they won't break the bank either.

Our man Dave Smith is trying them out as we speak - and he's not an easy man to please, so they'll be properly under the microscope for sure...
