I was in a bike shop today, picking up some gear for my forthcoming ride with Dan and Andy when I saw these new Specialized gloves hanging in the display. As part of their 74 line, Specialized developed some rather classy 74 Pittards leather gloves. At first glance, it looks like they hit a decent pricepoint without sacrificing quality or function. Add these to the list of must-have gloves, alongside Giro and Rapha‘s offerings.

Finally, the industry is returning to the nostalgic past of cycling and making products that doesn’t look like club dorkwear. But don’t forget who started the push. I’m going to pick a pair of each up and do a showdown of sorts in the coming months. Has anyone bought a pair of these yet? They looked damn nice in the shop.
