Giro and Elastic Interface have partnered to develop a new cycling glove called Supernatural, which features EIT Palm Technology, the same material used in the latter’s premium chamois pads.
Elastic Interface notes that its EIT Palm Technology delivers “the first ever three-dimensional, seamless and elastic palm to be developed for cycling gloves, and takes the protection and comfort of your hands on the handlebars to a whole new level.”
Elastic Interface developed the patented EIT Palm Technology with support from the University of Padua Department of Biomedical Sciences.
Billed as “the chamois for your hand” the palm pad adapts to the shape of the hand. It is claimed to improve blood flow and reduces soreness in the ulnar nerve – to reduce tingling fingers while riding.
“Unveiled in September 2019, the Elastic Interface Palm Technology is the result of years of R&D in the field of cycling pads, which made Elastic Interface the global leader of comfort in the saddle. The EIT Palm brings Elastic Interface to two of the three contact points between cyclists and their bikes; the saddle, with the cycling pads for shorts and bibs, and the handlebars, with gloves featuring the EIT Palm Technology.”
Giro is the first US brand to feature the EIT Palm with its Supernatural Glove, which are available in both men’s and women’s sizes for $50.00.
