    I think EMS just started their own line of bicycle clothing within the last few months. So I doubt there will be anyone with much experience at this point. But I can say that I've never been unsatisfied with EMS-brand products. I have tons of their shirts (techwick, fleece, and casual), a Windstopper jacket that's great for winter cycling, I've owned several EMS backpacks, gloves, wool socks, hiking pants, etc. and I've loved it all. For me it's a local company, so I try to support them whenever possible.

    I have not tried those,but I love Spenco Ironman gloves,though the price is not cheap.I thought Spenco quit making stuff but I saw some in the local shop and got them.If you have not heard of Spenco,they make medical padding for people with false legs and arms and stuff like that.They know where the padding is suppose to go.They use medical grade Gel(for the lack of a better word) but it's not like any gel that you have seen before.I don't know how to explain it well,you just have to try them to see what I mean.

    I've tried alot of gloves in the last 30 years,Spenco wins.....HMMMM hands down.

    I guess I'll be the first one having personal experience with the gloves, as I've just bought them at the EMS store. W/o trying to see how they fare when riding a bike, they feel quite comfortable. Before purchasing them I also have tried Pearl Izumi Attack Gloves and must admit the Pearl Izumi felt too small on my hands (kind of too short in the palm section), while the EMS gloves felt just perfect. The EMS gloves were on sale (25% off), that's $13.87 before tax.

    So far so good. After wearing the EMS gloves on 10 miles ride -- no complains. The only thing -- I'm not used to half-finger gloves at all, so touching metal with my bare fingers (brake bars) feels, how to put it, a bit unusual, strange. But seems to me I'll get used to it.

    I'd have to put the EMS gloves on and lean on a few surfaces to know how well they'd serve me. I wear gloves to cushion my ulnar and medial nerves in my hands. Currently I use Pearl Izumi Slice gloves. In the high-visibility yellow-green color. I WANT the driver to see me giving him the finger.
    How do you keep an idiot in suspense?
