Simple but important. Always used a PI glove. White Line(ususally can get cheap) but need a new pair(s) Anyone use anything different? Looking for a bit more comfort with longer rides. Thanks

PI Pittards. MUCH nicer than the white line, very nice and comforatable. A little more expensive, but well worth it.

my PI Gel-Lites stink after every ride! -I like Louis Garneau'sTig

No choice but to wash them several times a week. They feel great though.

Louis Garneau is one of our team's sponsors and I like one of their models (forgot the name). They have less bulk than the PI Gel-Lites, but feel super comfy on longer rides.

I found them to be more comfortable than PI White Line (of which I have several old pair; however, I haven't tried the "new" WL II). Also, on a lark I bought the Performance ErgoGel glove (I believe it's called the "Century"), which were on sale for $13 the last time I was near a Performance store and darn if they are as comfortable as anything I've worn.

FWIW,

These are great summer gloves. I hate wearing gloves in the heat, but these puppies have ultra-cooling vent material in the palm and the back. I find most gloves have too much padding that causes the pad to get bunched up and makes my hands uncomfortable. The LG gloves have just the right amount of padding for comfort. Caveat - they might not be as protective when they meet the pavement as other gloves...

that are going into their third season, they are about shot, but have been as good as any I have owned.

I like Specialized Body Geometry gloves, I sweat a lot and my wife insists on running my gloves through the washer and dryer everytime she can get her hands on my bike cloths. These are the first glove I've found that she can't destroy. My PI's lasted one month. Those Specialized gloves are tough.

The gel insert really does help relieve pressure and keep your hands from going numb

You can really transmit alot of germs and funk, etc. from NOT washing gloves out. Easy way to catch colds, sinus infections, eye infections....
you're probably rightColnagoFE

though I rarely wash mine and never seem to have a problem with colds in the summer. maybe i'm just lucky.

The only Assos product I own, can afford, want, whatever. They are nice gloves. Used PI's the last 10 yrs or so.

I use the PI Pittards, too and love them. Everyone is right, they do get stinky, but they are very comfortable.
