Finding the right glove for bike polo isn’t an easy task. It’s got to feel comfortable, be non-restrictive with mallet handling and offer as much protection as possible.
Here’s a few Todd has tested…
I’ve recently just moved to using the same glove as Rupert – The Brine “Cosmic” Thriller, designed for lacrosse.
My experience of gloves to date have just been light weight BMX or MTB gloves, which feel comfortable on the hand and offer good mallet grip, but littler protection.
I was hesitant at first to move to a bulkier glove, but have to say, the Brine Thrillers are awesome!
The fit is great – I use a 13″. There’s lots of movement flexibility, good top protection, a soft palm and plenty of breathable mesh vents to circulate air flow. They’re not cheap, but based on how long Rupert has been using his for, they wear really well, so I reckon you get your moneys worth out of them.
If only they were more readily available in the UK!
