The top 10 gloves for mountain biking, according to our readers, are all full-finger gloves. Yet some of these full-finger gloves are designed for XC, others for DH, with many in between. Fox dominates this list with 5 gloves in the top 10.
Pros: They are great gloves, comfortable, snug fit, durable, breathable and wash well. I don't use fingerless gloves so I use the Reflex all summer long. I have three pairs in different colors and all of them look new. The pads are located in the areas that I need them most.
Pros: - These gloves are very comfortable
- The gel padding does a lot to help with numbness on the long rides.
- they breathe very well and comfortable in the summer.
Cons: - They are light weight and there for not very durable. Mine did not last a full season without getting holes in the thumbs.
- When they get wet the gel padding get slippery against yer palm constantly wiggling around.
Pros: These gloves have gel pads right where you need them the most when gripping your bike. Also has a sweat band material swatch on each glove, which is nice, but not real helpful when you have on a helmet.
Cons: They are a little thin for winter riding, but is better than nothing at all.
Recommendation: Great buy for all around biking and good value for the price. I enjoy them and would certainly recommend.
