Gloves

What brand gloves do you use, and why do you like them?
what gloves do you not like, and why?

I have 2 pair Pearl white lines, they're ok
0ne pair Louis Garneau full finger gloves nice fit comfortable.
0ne pair Louis Garneau Ergo Air glove which I hate, the seam
on the fingers is very uncomfortable.
The most comfortable glove I ever had were old
cotton mesh with full leather palms.

Specialized Pro - They're okay, fit is good but the padding seems to be minimal or placed funny for me. I do like them not having the velcro strap (thus no exposed area for the suntan spot on back of hand)

Kucharik - picked 'em up at HHH and like them better than the above. Leather palm has more padding than the Specialized

Best ones I ever had were Spenco Gel Gloves, but wore them out a long time ago and I don't think they're available anymore.

I have a pair of Louis Garneau Rex's that are decent. One of the seams was bothering me so I restitched it and it works fine.

I have 3 pairs of Pearl Izumi's. 1 pair are the full finger cold weather gloves they fit big but work fine for cold weather. The other 2 are the regular cycling gloves. No problems with them they fit great and I love them. Got my last pair at the outlet for $8.99!

The only gloves I wear are P.I. White Line (no full finger). They fit the best and are the most comfortable IMO.

One pair of Trek Moby-Gels for summer and one pair of Specialized winter gloves.

The Moby-Gels fit my hand perfectly and have the padding in just the right spot. They are so comfortable, its like I don't have them one.

The Specialized winter gloves are warm, even to below freezing. I could not ride in the cold without them.

Performance fleece glove for the winter.

Cannondale leather fingerless for the summer.

Whatever I wear, I don't like too much padding but always like to have a glove of some sort on.

when i was riding a flat bar....i used louis garneau gel gloves. having injured the ligaments in both thumbs i would get quite a bit of pain when riding...those gloves helped a lot.

however...they fall apart quickly


now an oversized carbon bar and cinelli gel bar tape helps a ton

for summer i ride with nalini "pro" gloves. leather palm and spandex on the dorsum. very comfortable and has good "feel"

for the winter i use louis garneau windproof shells and they come with a fleece liner that is reinforced over the palm. they work fine but are a bit bulky and get pretty hot

i saw some campagnolo full fingered gloves one time that felt great.

they would make a good intermediate glove. they were more expensive than other brands...but not as much as the typical campy product..
