If the phrase The Full Monty conjures up images of middle-age British male strippers, we would like to present a more pleasing image. The Endura Full Monty glove is the full package for summer riding. This protective, yet highly vented, full fingered glove is also appropriate for late spring and early fall rides. The back of the glove is comprised of four-way stretch mesh running from the cuff to the tips of the fingers. Forefinger and inner hand are backed with an over-sized terry sweat wipe. The Fully Monty uses the same silicone grippers across the fingers and palm as other Endura gloves. A durable double layer is added over the inside curve of the thumb for added protection. Like the Endura Deluge and Dexter II gloves, the Endura Full Monty uses a Velcro closure around the wrist to endure a snug fit. Available in sizes Small through XL.
Strengths: Excellent balance of protection and ventilation. Great ventilation.
Great gloves that offer a nice balance between ventilation and protection. The vented material is provided in-between the fingers, which is very effective. This allows Endura to use a heavier material on the back of the glove where you need some protection. I generally do not like a lot of padding in my gloves. While these gloves have more padding than I usually prefer, it is very unobtrusive and I quite like it. I'm not sure where the MSRP listed above come from, I believe they retail for around $30-35. I subtracted one star because I am beginning to see a couple of small holes developing along the seems in between the fingers. I have a stack of gloves for every occaision, but since purchasing these... I haven't reached for another pair. I think I can say that these are the best MTB gloves I have ever used.
So here's the deal....I am new to the mtb game (however I have been both cross and road for a few years now). Do I put in my dues with a mid priced Cannondale F5 (or something similar) or do I go with the entry FS. I got an $800 Giant Yukon FX that I am itchin' to pull the trigger on, but not sure ...
