The Hotlap. The original warm-weather ropetow mitten for spring slush and sweaty riders.
- Rubber grip on the proven synthetic palm patch
- Tough leather finger wear strip
- Super breathable Lycra/neoprene back
- Chairlift bands
- LONGER CUFF
The hotlap was conceived by family members Ginger Drew and Nick Schoess, because the coldlap was too sweaty for days above 20°F. A bunch of the Colab family already had amazing spring mitts by other brands, but they weren’t tough enough for a ropetow.
We launched the first Hotlap in the 17/18 season with a short cuff and very thin liner, and nicknamed it “the shoulder dislocator” because it gripped…… TOO good. But funny enough, grabbing on and gripping immediately was a huge problem, and it blew the seams apart in the mitts.
The following season (18/19), we added the same proven finger patch as the coldlap, so the glove would (a) slide a bit to reduce the jerk, (b) be wear-resistant to said sliding, and (c) not tear along the seams.
We got a ton of feedback on the Hotlap, and I’m hyped about the cult following it’s got. Do you love it?
