3.0 out of 5 stars Yes, one size above, 12 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Elite Cycling Project Men's Road Racer Gel Fingerless Gloves (Sports Apparel)
Thanks for all the reviews that suggest getting one size above. I (male) have tiny hands (ahem), and would have gone for the small size, but because of the reviews, I went for the medium size. They are made for my size of hands. I'm also very happy with the level of padding.

My hand measurements, perfect for medium-sized gloves:
Span: 19 cm
Middle finger: 7.5 cm
Thumb: 6 cm (just)
Base of my palm to the end of my middle finger: 17.5 cm

UPDATE (circa 6 weeks later). The velcro is already starting to go on the right glove. Further, and of relative importance in determining the reduction of the star rating from the original 5 to now just 3, is the fact that my over-enthusiasm for the fit of the glove turns out to be just lies. These gloves are fingerless which is, in a sense, cheating, and I've further discovered that they can fit on the hands of a man who has very large hands (I didn't measure them, but they were not literally but very nearly literally giant's hands). I have since noticed that the gloves do contain significant manoevrability room within the glove when my hand is fully inserted. And, whilst looking kind of cool in the photos, and from a distance of 3 meters, upon close inspection they do actually look fairly cheap, and I have suspicions that they were made somewhere by children (I must add that this is a suspicion without any real evidence). That said, it does not seem to effect the overall performance of the gloves. The gloves remain on my hands, and protect me from the handlebars of my 1970s yellow Peugeot Cadre Allege road bike. In total, I am pleased with my purchase, just not as pleased as I initially was.
