    Finally found an excellent pair of gloves with good protection that fits well and looks great!

    Pros
    Good protection for palms and knuckles. Padding for ulnar nerve under pinky that's gets sore when you ride. They look cool! Mine are all black.

    Cons
    None.

    The other reviews have covered about everything, but, there is no real padding in the palm, you would not consider these to be "downhill" hand protection and they are not warm enough for winter riding. Those are not complaints, just reality. A good, comfortable XC glove for mild weather riding.

    Pros
    Light
    Durable
    Decent upper finger protection

    Cons
    no palm padding (not gel)

    I love this gloves. I got them for $20, at Eden Bicycles in Castro Valley, CA. They fit great, look cool, and protect your hands well. I definitely recommend buying a pair of these.

    Pros

    -Great fit
    -Well-ventilated
    -Excellent padding
    -Protects your palm with extra padding
    -Fingers are ventilated
    -They can be used on screens, (ex. smartphone, GPS) without taking them off

    Pros
    I also have a pair of Fox Digit; both of these gloves are very similar. Even though I'm a bit more impressed with the Fox Digit gloves, the Giro Xen gloves are great. Nice fit. Granted, both these gloves don't have a ton of padding, but I'm not sure if that's needed all the time. I use them both A LOT, and I don't have callouses, blisters, etc. I just wish they were a bit cheaper.

    Cons
    Hard to find on sale.

    Had these since October and love them. They are light and don't overheat my hands plus provide good protection. As a pleasant surprise I can us my phone without taking them off. Would recommend these all day long.

    Pros
    Comfortable, durable, all to use my smart phone with them on,

    Cons
    Non yet

    This is a great all-round glove, after a full year around 1000mi of riding no tears in the seams at all. good padding on palms. however the extra rubber on the top of the hand has no use to me. you also might have to wash it every so often to shrink em up!

    Pros
    good fit, durable, and protective.

    Cons
    needs to be washed to reshape every few weeks. strap.
