No expense has been spared to make the Ascender™ a first-class roping glove. Ergonomically cut to fit every contour of the hand with spandex backs laminated to foam for a snug, yet flexible fit. Removable wrist wraps provide additional support.
The palms feature gel padding and ARMOR-TAN™ leather from the world famous Pittards® Tannery of England. It extends into the fourchettes and around the fingertips for additional grip, protection and durability. The ARMOR-TAN™ process encases the leather fibril bundles with microscopic ceramic plates to increase abrasion resistance and durability to 25% more than that of untreated leathers. An additional WR100X treatment instills water and perspiration resistance, keeping the leather soft and supple even after repeated exposure.
A secondary, double-stitched layer of ARMOR-TAN™ leather in the palms and Toughtek™ fingertip patches increase durability and protection in the crucial gripping areas.
The cuffs have a grommet for easy attachment to belts or gear bags with the complimentary caribiner clip*.
