The Dissent 133 Ultimate Glove is not just gloves – it’s a glove layering system. Designed with road riding in mind, I thought I’d see how they would fare in the muddy world of mountain bikes.
Three things I liked:
- They’re not sweaty
- They’re waterproof
- You can adjust layers if you do get too warm or cold
Three things I’d change:
- Change the cuff fastener design to remove the Velcro
- Improved durability of the palm and finger grips
- Add a lobster mitt layer
What you get with the Dissent 133 Ultimate Glove pack is four different gloves – a silk liner, a knitted ‘Cordura touch fit’ thermal glove, a ‘Showerlite’ soft shell outer, and an ‘Outdry Lite’ waterproof outer. The idea is that you can mix and match the layers according to whether it’s cold and wet, warmish but windy, warm and wet, and so on. The gloves come in a substantial case of the type you might keep a laptop in, which seems like overkill but does look posh, and there’s a guide inside the box as to which layers you should pick for different weather conditions. I had the size medium kit on test, but also ordered a small kit to try on for size comparison.
