Zippyrooz Bike Gloves Review – Fun and Functional Protective Gear

Kids generally fall hands first.  When riding balance bikes, kids instinctively try to catch themselves with their hands.  As a result, second to the helmet, gloves are the most important safety equipment for young riders.  Elbow and knee pads certainly prevent their share of bumps and bruises, but not as often as a good pair of biking gloves.

Like bike and helmets, not all kids bike gloves are created equal. Over the years we have had gloves fall apart, deemed uncomfortable by our kids, or have stopped using simply because they were difficult to use.  While getting gloves on kids will always be problematic (although we’ve found half-fingered gloves to be easier to get on), Zippyrooz gloves are amazingly simply to get off.  With sewn in finger-loops on the palm on each gloves, our testers quickly, easily and independently were able to remove their gloves.

Zippyrooz finger loops easily tuck under the fingers during use and are easily found when kids are ready to take them off.

Even beyond the finger loops, Zippyrooz are amazing gloves.  The top fabric is breathable and stretchy, while the palms are soft and pliable with sewn-in pads.  A Velcro wrist strap helps the gloves stay on and provides a wide opening to aide in getting the gloves on.  Getting little fingers in all the right holes in still a challenge with the Zippyrooz, but not any more than other kids biking gloves.  For those inevitable preschool and toddler happenings, the thumb also has a soft absorbent nose wipe.

Well-made, with finger-loops for easy off’s, the Zippyrooz are fun as they are functional.
