  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Medium

This has the recipe to a good burrito on the fingers so that's a huge plus. They grip like crazy and are very comfy. A little low on breathability since they're a little on the thick side but otherwise great!


  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Just wore these things for the first time riding and I'm stoked with them! They're lightweight, breathable, and grippy, everything you could ask for in a bike glove. The unique graphic also keeps you from looking like everyone else on the trail.

Well made, comfortable, extra touches

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

Clipped the tags on these and threw them on for the Texas Hundred ride just outside of Austin. 100 miles of sweat, dirt, and allergy induced nasal discharge - these guys worked great.

No padding to speak of but the have ample area to wipe your brow or nose. Seams are well stitched and the grip is excellent (the grippers also double as motivation for post-ride grub - you'll see what I mean).

Design is understated but beats the heck out of a plain color glove. Fit is pretty much on par with most major brands.
