With denser, thicker insulation these De Marchi Contour Plus Ultra Gloves are the next step in protection from their Contour Plus Gloves. They're made of a different material, 3D Thermashield Extreme, that seems like neoprene at first glance. Once you try them on you find that they're a bit softer than your ancient neoprene gloves, and they afford a better feel with the bar while you ride. Like their lighter weight brethren, the Contour Plus Ultra Gloves are windproof and water resistant. However, there is no membrane laminated inside the fabric to provide this protection. Rather, the fabric has a multi-cavity construction. The outer layer is so densely woven that its very nature makes it windproof and water resistant. Between the inner and outer surfaces, this version of Thermashield has a substantial pile that traps the warmth created by your hands. They're designed to keep your hands comfortable in 32 - 41 degrees F (0 - 5 degrees C) temperatures. The De Marchi Contour Plus Ultra Gloves are Black and are available in five sizes from Small to XX-Large. They have a stretchy Lycra cuff that extends far enough up the wrist to eliminate exposed skin between gloves and jacket when you're in the drops. The palms have silicone grippers shaped like the De Marchi rooster to help you hold onto the bars when it's wet and nasty.
