I've got a fairly crappy pair of Microfleece gloves at the moment and I'm looking for some new full-length summer gloves that will stop my hands from aching and give a decent grip for under £20!

The Endura Full Monty Gloves are the ones I'm considering: http://www.dalescycles.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=14441

Can anyone recommend any others?

    yeah spesh ridge are good, I'd spend the extra onthe Gels though
  • So do the Ridge BG not come with gel?

    661 Raji - I have no complaints about them at all.
  • I've got the fox incline gloves. I find they are comfy on the bike but keep cool with the airflow over your hands. There isn't much in the way of padding but I like the feel of them.

    they only have a small pad, the gels have more padded area

    Aldi have the cycle gloves in again from tomorrow £2.99 ,

    If they are the same quality as last years gloves you wont get better, will have to see what they are like tomorrow morning .
  • i've got those endura full monty gloves...there alright but nothing special. although they are quite hard wearing, the lack of a gel pad on the palm lets them down in my opinion, especialy on a long ride.

    i prefere the spesh ridge BG ones with the gel pads........infact i'm going to buy a new pair now!

    661 Raji's and Troy Lee Designs XC gloves both get my thumbs up (and my fingers aswell !!)

    Cool colours and super comfy... and I can actually type text on my phone with the gloves on... although sometimes come up with a few wafty words!
