We have several ski equipment and snowboarding tips on the site ( here ) but we still have not covered the small but essential accessories to enjoy your snow trip.
In this tip one of the best Brazilian snowboarders, Lucas Rezende , reflects his experience after the season to give readers of the Radical Zone some suggestions of him on the snowboard gloves.
Well, the snow is gone for now (at least for me) and there’s never anything better in this between-seasons than reflecting your experience. So I decided to share some of the experiences I’ve had over the years with gloves.
Fuck, gloves? Why not boards, bindings, boots, resorts, etc? Because everybody talks about it. And nobody knows anything about the gloves. And to be honest, I’m more afraid of riding without a glove than without a helmet. (Have you seen the corners of a running board?
There are two types of glove: with fingers (glove) or without fingers (mitten). There is also a lobster that is a mixture of the two, but to my mind, it has no advantage from either model.
My preference? Without fingers.
Why wear gloves without fingers? Business super clumsy, kind of ridiculous, it looks like those kid gloves that the mother does not want to feel cold for nothing. Answer: They are hot. Very warm. Much warmer than finger. And they are tough. I already bought cheap finger gloves, I already bought expensive, good brands, bad brands, known, unknown. None lasted more than a month.
Okay, and what to do in the spring, when the temperatures are much cooler? Finger glove, logic. The solution, for me, were work gloves. Type EPI same, but for cold and waterproof. Super sturdy, and work well if you do not stay all the time with your hands in the snow (not good for beginners).
Are you still hot? Half-pipe gloves. Super thin, they protect against the wind, and have a really good grip.
To conclude, we remember that there is also a mixture of gloves without and with fingers, which is called ‘lobster’. The likes and dislikes of this type of accessory we tell another day. =)
