Fox sidewinder gloves, got em today!

Wow these things are great! They have so much grip, and for 25 bucks brand new shipped its a steal i think. One thing i did notice is that they are kind of small, I ordered large and they fit, but they are tight fit. Is this normal? Just thought ide share that

I've got Fox Sidewinders too (S size though ) They're really nice, great grip and not too sweaty, got them for 15 euros off a friend.

I will say, they have fantastic grip, And they have a little stand of silicon or something gel like on your index and middle finger they say its for when you brake it helps reduce fatigue but i doubt it actually does it, it looks cool though

Nice, cow. I recently got the same gloves. They do run a bit small. I get XXL every time.
After a couple rides, the white piece on the back of the middle finger delaminated, but I glued it back with some gorilla glue and it's holding up well.

I also have the ones that came out a year before and a year after Raiyn's; I usually get two seasons out of a pair.

Don't you want gloves to fit somewhat tightly? i have a pair of large Fox Thermals and have found that they are a little on the long side and have a HUGE thumb, so I ordered some small Static gloves. I would have ordered Sidewinders but the new ones i personally think are pretty ugly, and I like how the Statics have the white finger. Does anyone else think that the thumbs in these gloves are really big?

I think the thumb is too small. I dont like gloves fitting too tightly, snug is alright. Im just afraid that im gonna grow more and these things wont last more than a few months.

I actuallly have very short fat fingers, so its hard for me to find a pair of gloves that fit good. Ive had a small pair of fox mx gloves from when i used to race gokarts since i was about 10, they held up really well until my friends dog bit of one of my fingers.

You should leave less than a centimeter for growing space. what happens is that you want them to be tight (they WILL stretch as your "Break them in"). If they are loose, your hands will rub around in them and cause your skin to become callusy. I like callusses but I don't like the process of getting them. Again, don't leave too much space in your glove.

i have a pair for about two+ years now.falling apart a little bit, but they still get the job done.

a size small fits me really well. maybe it's just me, but it seems as you sweat into them, they get a little looser. for some reason, they come out of the wash feeling smaller. heh

A word of advice to those interested in FOX racing apparel.
IT RUNS SMALL, REAL SMALL....

Glove sizing is like Euro shoe sizing. Azonic size 12 is a large, while 661 size 11 is an X-large. Go figure.

I like callouses too. They mean you don't have to worry about getting callouses, becaues you've already got them and getting them is the painful part. Applies for writing callouses, guitar callouses, soccer callouses, etc.

My gloves (Fox Digits) fit pretty close. Honestly, "like a glove." There's no room for the glove to shift around, but they aren't stretched over my skin. They're really comfortable. No bar callouses.

I wear mine pretty much as shown. I can't close the wrist strap very tight but on my hand they're gold. (I typed this post with them on just to try it)
