Adaptive Cycling: Handcycles, Amputee Adaptation, Visual Impairment, and Other Needs Have a need for adaptive equipment to ride to compensate for a disability or loss of limb or function? This area is for discussion among those of us in the cycling world that are coming back from traumatic circumstances and tell the world, "No, you are not going to beat me down!"

Do you need gloves for co2 inflator?

I saw a video and co2 gets you cold. Do you use gloves?

No, mine have a red foam sleeve that fits over the cartridge. I got mine from MEC years ago. It looks like this WalMArt one but the sleeve on mine is red not black.
