Submitted by Tornadom a Cross Country Rider from Central Valley, California, United States of America

Date Reviewed: June 6, 2010

Strengths:    Comfortable, grip-tastic, full finger, vetilation

Weaknesses:    stain easily, palm feels funny for a few rides after you get it wet

Bottom Line:   
I bought the gloves because they were white and they looked cool. I primarily used TLD products in my BMX racing endeavours, so I was familiar with their outstanding cost to appearance to quality ratio. They are not the cheapest, best looking or longest lasting products on the market, but they certainly strike a nice balance of the three.

After I got the chance to use these gloves for a while I fell in love. I am not a fan of fingerless gloves, and too few companies make a light weight full finger glove. In my hot locale, it is nice to have something that breaths, and these gloves certainly do breath. The palm grips like no other (in a good way) and is comfortable while wrapped around the bars.

Buy them if: you want a breathable, full finger glove for trail and XC race use and live in a warm and dry area

Avoid them if: you ride in cold weather, rainy weather or are interested in setting new land speed records on your bicycle

Submitted by Scott Eagan a Cross Country Rider from Logan, Ut

Date Reviewed: July 25, 2007

Strengths:    Light, breathable, no velcro

Weaknesses:    The silicon on the palm began wearing off after one ride. The gloves still work good, but look crappy. I emailed TLD and they claim it is not a manufacture's defect, so they must design their stuff to fall apart. Buy something else

Bottom Line:   
If you don't care what your equipment looks like after one ride then they might be worthwile, especcially if you could get them around half off, otherwise get Fox's mountain bike gloves, something with a nice terry wipe cloth on it would be much nicer.

Mojo HDR-650b-What setting for Cane Creek DB Air?

Cane creek only lists a base tune for the HD on their website and this is what I've started with. So far I've found nobody posting their tune and I haven't had a response to my post in the Cane Creek lounge. Any input from someone running the CCDBA would be much appreciated!Read More »
