Instead of compromising between weight and protection, our AUTOMATIC GLOVE finds the perfect balance to give you exactly what you need. Mesh keeps it lightweight while Unobtainium® plating helps protect the knuckle zones. Clarino® is an integral part of this design, and it brings durability to the one-piece palm without diminishing responsiveness. We used more on the thumb to shield you from branch strikes and brush swipes. The first and second fingers have a high-grip pattern, and AUTOMATIC has a nose-wipe zone of soft terry. If you're into short climbs and ultra sketchy descents, this is the glove to wear.
