Date Reviewed: April 6, 2006

Strengths:    cheap, hold up to regular use, cover more finger but keep your hand cool

Weaknesses:    black version had dumb plastic coating that I immediately removed on the back of hand

Bottom Line:   
Cheap and efficient. Not for riding through the bushes, but fine for well-groomed trails. Fingertips are still exposed, so tuck and roll if you crash.

Submitted by Mike a Weekend Warrior from Ipswich, Suffolk, UK

Date Reviewed: April 2, 2002

Strengths:    Look good, no too much padding, pads are soft enough to still be able to feel your handlebars through, colours, different length "half" fingers

Weaknesses:    None so far

Bottom Line:   
These gloves really make you feel the part, not to mention the fact that they save your hands getting blisters on hard rides.
The fact that the "half" fingers are different lengths is a bonus as it means that your skin is only exposed at the bits they need to be and you dont end up with blisters half way down your fingers.

Managed to get these thrown in with my bike, so a bit of a bonus, plus they had both the tan (which I got) and green in stock. If you are serious about keeping your hands sweat and blister free, whilst still being able to feel your handlebars, these are the gloves you need

Submitted by John a Weekend Warrior from Irving, Texas

Date Reviewed: June 13, 2001

Strengths:    Comfortable
Tough
Goodlooking


Weaknesses:    Color choice (but I bought them on sale so that limited my options.)

Bottom Line:   
Much more comfortable than my previous gloves even with less padding, very cool to wear (important here in Texas). These are the half-finger style and might not work for hardcore off road freaks who deal with bad conditions. For light trail work and around town commuting they rock. They grip well but allow you to shift your fingers around when needed.

Date Reviewed: November 8, 2000

Strengths:    Comfortable, full finger glove.

Weaknesses:    Could use just a smidgen more padding.

Bottom Line:   
Comfortable full finger gloves that will protect you from rocks, stickers, cactus spines (well maybe not). Hold up well if you don't put them in the dryer. Good price. You're stuck with the color for the size (red=small, blue=medium, green=large) but who cares?

Date Reviewed: May 9, 2000

Strengths:    fits like.... a glove!
super sweet styling
good padding without loss of control, and without making your hands feel tired, because too much will do that.


Weaknesses:    didn't see them earlier,

Bottom Line:   
go with these, they are simply the best if you are serious about control, and dont want your hands to fatigue. good breathable fabric helps shed water and keeps hands relatively dry, makes holding onto the handlebar every bit easier....
can you say control, who could ask for anything more?
