Tow Rope Gloves
 
Living in Chicagoland my riding is very limited. I have a fun little park not far from my house so I hope to get a good amount of riding in during the week and travel to better spots on the weekends. This place is mostly tow rope though and looking for a good pair of gloves that will last longer then a trip or two up the hill. Anyone have any good suggestions?

get the leather glove covers. Like $15 they slide right over your gloves and work great. All 3 of us have them in our gear tote for if we ever need them.

I have never seen those before. Know any places I can get them at? I am actually not far from you. I have a place in Bristol Wi that I spend alot of my time at. Thanks for the suggestion.

Fergus,
I got mine at Laacke & Joy in Brookfield try a google search Dogfunk may carry them or EVO not really sure if the big box chains carry them but worth the look. Laacke & Joy's does have a web site not sure if they are on there though. I've used these since the 80's on tow ropes.

If you ever make it up to Alpine Valley which is currently making snow to open next weekend drop me a line love riding with guys from the forum. Made some good friends off here from the Chitown area.

EDIT: :laugh: 2 pairs are still in wrappers I bought as just in case equipment.
Maker is Kombi "the glove protector"
