Need recommendation on cycling gloves(12 posts)

Need recommendation on cycling glovesdeet

Okay, I'm about to throw out my PI Gel lite II gloves as they're trashed and need to know if there are any other favorites out there that I need to consider. I've tried the Louis G ERgoAir but my hands tend to slip in the glove. Thanks.

...about Specialized gloves. Apparently, there is no velcro closure on the new ones; the opening just expands, which eliminates part of the freaky-cycling-glove-tan-lines. I am using a Trek glove right now that has minimal padding, no velcro closure like the Specialized gloves, but has been quite comfortable in comparison to the PI Gel lite gloves I had been using.

...for the last 3 years.The new slip on BG Pro model I didn't like very much.They lasted less than a season(about 5 months wear).The padding seemed to be to thick and actually caused pressure points on the pads of my hands,especially in the drops.I do reccomend the less expensive BG Comp model.I've had these before and went back to them.The padding was more spread out and less thick.I think this helped spread the pressure over a larger area.They have the Velcro closure if that is a problem for you.Otherwise I think they will work out better in the long run.
Cheap is good, Chiba or Fox is better.dzrider

Cheap, thinly padded gloves that fit my hands well are fine with me. Chiba gloves are made of incredibly comfortable material and IMHO better than PI. Fox gloves have lasted the longest.
I bought Pearl and really liked them...benja15

I have the white line model i believe, they wore relativly fast but they give a great fit

I will definatly go for Pearl again

These have been good to me this year. If you are looking for minimum padding and good fit, this might be an option. I have tried the PI White Line and Spec. BG gloves and they both stink (at least for me)

After all these years of trying to find good cycling products at cheap prices, I've switched to ASSOS in the last 2 yrs and find that their quality is #1...pricy, but performs and lasts...there are lots of less expensive products on the market that generally don't perform or last more than 3 seasons, but ASSOS does, and plus some.

Best value: Performance Century gloves. Cheap, comfortable, fairly well made. Washable

My favorite overall: Pearl Izumi Pittards. Great comfort and feel

Yes, they are over $30, but you can't skimp on the three contact points. Hands, ass, and feet.

I don't know if you're ready to go from gel to no padding, but I've been using Pearl Izumi Race gloves for the past 5 or 6 months and they're my favorite gloves ever. They're very snug and comfortable.
