Tips for warm weather road gloves?(16 posts)

Tips for warm weather road gloves?niednagl
Aug 13, 2002 10:23 AM
I'm looking for a set of good warm weather road gloves, with nice, thin padding in the palm (I find the bulky "ergo" pads you find e.g. in most Pearl Izumi gloves a total nuisance - particularly with cork tape).
A nice breathable backing material is also a must.
Anyone got any bright ideas?
I use these in Florida.........african

I like the padding and the top is great as you wipe your brow it absorbs the sweat. Got a pair at the LBS and another from specialized.com

I have several that I cut the strap and velco off. Makes them a little cooler.

they do have a lot of padding, which is what he's trying to avoid...

I bought these, and they are a very light, breathable glove that fits my hand very well. The padding is just right, and cut to be minimal in bulk yet maximal in absorption and placement. I like em a lot.

I just bought a pair at Performance and the airy back AND palm is nice on the really hot days.

Give 'em a try.

Happy riding.

I think I like the Pearl Izumi Pittards a tad better for comfort.
DeFeet made the perfect glove...PdxMark

thin padding with a diaphanous synthetic mesh in back. I called to get another pair becuase I like them so much, but DeFeet's entire stock of them burned in a warehouse fire DeFeet had a year or so ago. PI makes a "pursuit" model glove that sounds similar in the online descriptions, but I haven't seen the glove. I've been thinking I'd order the PI glove to give it a try.

Tyr the PI pursuit glove. very light padding, greptile grip and light mesh back with terry thumb. It's a great all around warm weather glove.

minimal padding so there is no bunching when they get soggy. Light enough but with a terry back for wiping. They have an even lighter pair Ambros I think. No terry back and no strap. FWIW, I live in S. Louisiana so they are tested in the heat and humidity every day.

for cool and coolness, with the added funk factor of a spider web tan on the back of your hands.

we've gone from a thread where just about no one wears gloves in warm weather to one where just about everyone wears gloves in warm weather. :-)
