For XC cycling+dirt jumping, which gloves would be best for £30 or less...I've heard sixsix one CG-2 and sixsixone descends/nasty are O.K but i'd just like to know what would be best suited; good grip and good airflow for hot days..

thx :)

    Another Spesh BG Ridge (long finger) fan here!

    Comfy, long lasting & cheap!
  • I've got some race face gloves and they are good, used to use 661 gloves and they were good too.
  • Me and the gf are both using 661 gloves (full finger) , can fault them after a years use and they were never too hot in the summer.

  • I have the 661 desend gloves, haven't had them long but i do like them alot. There not great for cold weather though, gotta get something else for the cold days.

    My Shadow Conspiracy (A well known BMX brand) gloves have served my very well from sweaty skateparks to harsh street riding with a healthy dose of off-road riding too. Airflow is good and they're nice and grippy. They're tough too due to the kevlar reinforcement. Mine are about 3 years old now though so I think it's time to change them as they're quite grimey and are now beggining to show signs of wear... 3 years froma pair of gloves is good if you ask me though.

    I'm thinking of some TSG Beams to replace them. They look awesome. Loads of grip due to the silicone palm and they seem nice and light too, so hopefully not too sweaty.

    I've tried various 661gloves but wasnt keen on the MX styling... just me being fickle though :roll:
