    Strengths:    Quality

    Weaknesses:    Gel inserts are too thick. Weird insert placement.

    Bottom Line:   
    I second that the inserts are too thick. It was a bit uncomfortable sometimes and I did get occasional numbness. This was on a full suspension bike. I use Race Face grips, I was thinking it was maybe just grips and these may be better with bar tape. Still have to try that out.

    I have a wide palm so the outermost insert became somewhat irritating when riding for a long time.

    Plus side is that they're good quality and relatively comfortable if you do find a decent grip position. Downside is they can be somewhat pricey.

    Strengths:    Has all the basic features right- terry cloth wiping surface, wrist-side velcro closure, smartly positioned pads. Light. Cheap.

    Weaknesses:    Way, way, way over-padded. Not that there is too much padding on the palm overall, but more specifically that the padding is too thick and dense, so dense that it actually creates pressure points instead of alleviating them. I found myself with blisters and numbness. Maybe century-every-weekend roadies are not the intended market for these gloves and they rock on the trail, but I can tell you for sure that they sucked on the road, at least in my experience.

    Bottom Line:   
    Not only did they not help my hands, they killed road feel, so you get all of the downsides to thick gloves with none of the benefit.

    Take reviews like this with a grain of salt, gloves are a very personal thing, and what I hate you might love. But I hated these gloves.

    This review refers to the Atlis Gel version.
