After watching the apline skiing competition in Sochi olympics, we see the glove that is the most popular among athletes.

 

 

 

 

 

The Reusch Race-Tec 14 GS was used by downhill gold winner Matthias Mayer, silver medalist in Super G Andrew Weibrecht and bronze medalist Bode Miller, also in Super G. The Reusch Race-Tech is availible both as a glove and a mitten variant.

 

Kjetil Jansrud Norwegian bronze medalist in downhill and gold winner in Super G, is using Level racing glove similar to the Level race speed x-trafit or in downhill and Sq cf in Super G. While Ted Ligety is the only one on the podium without Level and Reusch using Slytech.
