English term or phrase: minimal take on out-and-out function
Hello ! Pour un communiqué de presse sur un équipement de vélo- ici il s'agit d'une collection de gants entièrement revisitée - j'ai besoin de traduire en Français "a minimal take on out-and-out function".

La phrase entière : "Gloves have been trimmed down to the bare essentials: a minimal take on out-and-out function, and the ideal choice for technically demanding trails".

Doit-on comprendre que les performances les plus importantes ont été conservées et limitées à leur strict minimum ?

Merci !

Should we understand that the most important performances (functions) have been kept and kept to a minimum?
