Terra Nova Offers Cuben Fiber Ultra Glove
Terra Nova's Laser Ultra 1 tent holds the Guinness World Record for lightest double wall shelter ever produced. Now the British manufacturer has made a glove version of its ultralight Cuben Fiber tent: the Extremities Ultra Glo winter running glove.
Terra Nova took the Ultra fabric (Cuben Fiber) from its Laser Ultra 1 tent and used it for the windproof back of the Ultra Glo Glove. The glove gets around Cuben Fiber's inherent impermeability with super-breathable mesh for the palm in high-visibility Coolmax. Total weight: 19 grams.
Andy Utting, managing director at Terra Nova, said: “As soon as we created the Laser Ultra 1 we realized the material could offer real benefits to runners."
Sold under Terra Nova's Extremities brand, this is a bare minimum glove for highly aerobic events.
Tell us, winter runners. Would you wear translucent, Cuben Fiber gloves?
