Classic Comfort Gloves

Retro-style gloves with a nice touch of modern technology--at a great price!

I’ve been using these gloves for a few months now and have been very pleased with their performance. They fit nicely and give me the retro-style that I like.

The back of the glove is made of black mesh and the palm is made of a durable composite fabric. The palm area does not sacrifice any grip in wet conditions and does not get stiff if left overnight to dry. The padding and reinforcement in the palm make nice longer rides more comfortable without going overboard and being too cushy. One of the nice modern features is the nose-wiper on the back of the thumb. It is made of a nice soft black terry cloth that matches the glove well. In addition to being able to effectively wipe noses, the gloves are also machine-washable.

Single Velcro straps across the backs of the wrists are what keep these gloves on. The band that wraps around the base of the glove is made of neoprene, which provides padding in the wrist giving a little extra protection. It also allows for a better, more adjustable fit.

Overall they are a nice solid pair of gloves at a great value. They come in any color—as long as its black—and they are a great way to get the pink polka-dots onto the backs of your hands. Avenir Classic Comfort Gloves are available for purchase at your local Raleigh or Diamondback Dealer.

Update - Avenir is Growing... ok probabaly not news to many

Yeah it's been a while... slap me on the hand and send me to the corner for a time out. But hey I'm back from what I would consider a learning situation that took me from typical busy to ludicrous speed.

Since my last blog lots has happened and is still happening. We've almost completely phased out our Cyclepro brand and converted it to Avenir. Our pump line has been revamped and will take many of you by surprise when you see how they look and and how well they perform. Our bag line got some flavor by adding a rainbow of colors plus a few panniers that every commuter will enjoy. Overall we are focusing more on growing the brand and value of our products which will be obvious with the new product to come.

I apologize to all who visit the site and look for images and info of our new product. In the next few weeks expect to see images of the new stuff. Right now I'll just keep you wondering what's come.
