|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 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.

|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 second the Louis Garneau Ergo Air||JL|

|I just bought a pair at Performance and the airy back AND palm is nice on the really hot days.
Give 'em a try.
|I also like the Performance Elite gloves (nm)||JL|

|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.|

|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. :-)|
