Make a hell of a difference to your riding.
on 27 July 2013
Very cheap, but not as flimsy as you'd think.
Very comfy, more support for hands, much less fatigue as a result!
What's the first thing you try and do if you come off a bike? Yep, put your hands out to break the fall. Without gloves, you're gonna end up with gravel embedded deep in your hands, and serious road rash. These gloves have a nice thick pad sewn in to protect the palm, very re-assuring at 30mph downhill!
I got the large size(i'm a 22 yr old male, average build) and the left glove comes off very easily, even when hot and sweaty. But the right glove is harder to get off for some reason....tricky getting the thumb out! Not sure why, both my hands are the same size! Only a minor gripe though. Otherwise a good product, and for less than a tenner, I don't mind if they don't last long. Expect a couple of months out of them, if you're a regular rider.
Recommended for beginner cycle gloves, but I might try a more expensive pair, double the price next time and see if there's much improvement.
I'm pleased overall.
