Glo Glov Reflective Sport Glove

08 Oct

Some us of ride our bikes at night because it is fun, others do it because they have no other choice. Regardless of why you are cycling at night you want to get back home safely—and that means proper lighting and reflectors. One of the greatest pieces of safety equipment I’ve ever bought was a pair of Glo Glov Reflective Sport Gloves and I never ride at night without them.

Glo Glov Reflective Sport Glove for cyclists

Glo Glov Reflective Sport Glove

Glo Glov Reflective Sport Gloves are lightweight gloves that have several pieces of yellow retro-reflective vinyl sewn onto the back (and a red piece on the wrist). These gloves are specially designed for outdoor sports and are great for cyclists, runners, walkers or anyone who has to exercise near road traffic—the reflective strips can easily be seen from 1/4 of a mile away. While a reflective vest and taillight will allow motorists to see you, these gloves will allow them to see you signal for turns (or for a stop if you point the red reflective strip towards the back). These gloves work so well that I’ve had several motorists pull up beside me at a stoplight and ask about them.

These gloves have a padded grip palm and you can wear them alone or over your regular cycling gloves. These lightweight (only 1.5 ounces per pair) gloves are highly breathable and made of a non-fraying fabric (80% nylon, 20% spandex). As for sizing, these gloves are advertised as “one size fits all.” Incredibly, this is one of the few times that a claim like this is actually true—the gloves should fit any size hand from Medium to XXL. I wear XL cycling gloves and the Glo Glov fits of them without any trouble (and they come off just as easy).

Glo Glovs are made in the USA and sell for $20 on the Glo Glov Website (price includes shipping). I would highly recommend this product to anyone who cycles or runs at night.

      Joboo, I don’t think they have a full finger glove, but the Glo Glove should easily slip over standard full finger cycling gloves (but not you heavy winter gloves).

    Hi Joe, I just sent you a return email. Because of the many different hand sizes and glove types, our GloGlovs are designed to fit over your full fingered gloves! Our Original GloGlov stretches the most and they are on sale!! Thanks, the Glolady

      Lynette,
      Yes I received it. Thank you for the quick reply!!! Very very refreshing!! I guess I really don’t have a need for an extra glove over my full fingered summer gloves I usually wear inside my Pogies. It’s a less is more kind of thing during our cold winters in northern Mn. If I’m off the bike for an extended period of time, I throw on my “choppers.” you guys have a killer product going on none the less!!
      Peace

      They have a few other models on their Website — some might even be better for running (larger reflective area, but no pads on the palm)

        Awesome.. when I bike, I usually have 2 blinkers on my back, one on the helmet the other on my bike.

        There is a saying that you gotta light yourself up like a Christmas tree, when you bike at night.

        Cheers

      I heard that Santa is going to use a Surly Pugsley this Christmas if the snow gets too deep for the reindeer (and we can only hope).

    Do you have any gloves that you recommend for spinning? I joined a new gym and the handle bars are rubbing blisters on the heel of my hand. Do you, by chance, have any recommendations? Thanks!

      Dani, it seems like most cycling gloves made to today are lacking the padding that they had just a few years ago. However, the Spenco Ironman T.2 Elite Cycling Glove is an exception to the rule — great padding in a comfortable glove. I posted a review of them at:

    The gloves I wear have silverish reflectors on it…not on the wrist area though…I like that for the hand turning signal thing you mentioned.

    And …. I think I like the yellow reflectors better. In my head they would seem more visible.

      The reflectors on the Glo Glov are much brighter than you will find on any other glove. They even make one model for cops — it helps them direct traffic better.
