When the mercury soars, keeping your paws cool is critical. Sweaty palms lead to loose grip, and sliding around on the bars is the last thing you want when you're booking it into a banked berm at warp speed, so don Ion's Traze Glove and stay in control in the heat. The Traze is Ion's most ventilated, lightest glove, with feathery synthetic on the back of the hand to let cool air in, and a palm built from a single piece of synthetic leather to avoid irritating seams while you ride. Just because you want your hands to keep cool doesn't mean you want to go so minimal that your hands go numb from trail vibrations, so Ion equips the Traze with Nerve_Nugget gel padding at the palm to help reduce fatigue while you ride. And for those moments when snagging a quick picture of an epic vista at the top of the climb, or grabbing footie of your buddy hitting that lofty double, the gloves feature Ditital_Tip technology at the forefinger to enable you to access your touch-screen devices without tossing off your mitts.
