Recommendations for full fingered summer gloves

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I use long finger gloves year round. Dakine Exodus and Troy Lee Designs Air. If you need padding in the palms these won't work for you tho.

If you need padding, Giro Bravo LF or Giro Monaco LF are nice, the only difference is the Bravo uses synthetic leather palm, Monaco uses genuine Pittards leather.

I've never used them but Assos long finger gloves look like they would be great too. Pricey tho.

I'm using the Assos ones now but it seems that they've discontinued them. I like the ventilation on them, but the palm padding is not the best, and it seems that because of where the padding is, I sometimes get some numbness on longer rides.

Haven't really been a fan of Specialized bikes in recent years, but I do love their gloves, arm/leg warmers, shoes, and helmets. Tried Capo and Rapha gloves, they are alright, but I always find myself grabbing one of my 5 year old sets of Specialized gloves. I don't recall which set they are, but a couple are kinda mesh, I have them in both half and full finger. Stood up to years of abuse so far.

I recently bought a pair of Specialized XC Lite full-fingered gloves, for two reasons: I wanted full finger coverage, and I didn't want any padding. These gloves succeed, in both. They're pricey, and, if I hadn't already made the purchase, I'd've gone for a pair of full-fingered, unpadded, golf gloves... next time.

PS: I bought mine from Pedal Power, in Acton, MA (found them on their website).
