The weather is starting to turn here already (seriously), and now the Tasker’s have become the glove of choice for my morning rides. In the thick of summer I tend to stick with textile or mesh gloves that allow for maximum airflow, but when the needle dips below 48F, I’m quick to something that better manages heat.
The Taskers are short-cuff leather gloves, marketed as a two or three-season glove (depending on where you live). Priced at $80, the Tasker is not-quite-expensive but also not bargain priced- they sit comfortably alongside their peers from REV’IT, Icon, Dainese, etc.
The Taskers are the ideal complement to the REAX Jackson jacket I reviewed a few weeks ago, incorporating the same style and materials. Having now spent numerous mornings with the Tasker’s, I’ve found them to be comfortable, warm, and good quality. Let’s dive in.
