The Danish company, GripGrab specialises in looking after your extremities; it makes gloves, hats, socks, leg and arm warmers as well as overshoes.

Its Roadster mitts are designed to be really lightweight for summer riding. The backs of the gloves are made of a thin, see-through mesh. GripGrab says that they are made that way so you can get a tan through the fabric as you ride - so no more dodgy hand tan lines.
