Feel that summer breeze.

Many of us opt to ride glove-less during the summer months due to the natural dexterity, sensitivity to road feedback, and cool feeling that naked hands are able to provide. However, there are situations when gloves are a must. Both racing and long days over harsh roads are a couple of scenarios where the added support and coverage that gloves provide make all of the difference in how your day turns out. After all, time spent off the bike healing mangled palms is never worth the trade-off, which is why Assos designed its new summerGloves_s7.

The Summer Gloves are a refined version of the Assos' popular CYC gloves. They provide the signature level of quality, comfort, and durability that you've come to expect from Assos but, in typical Assos style, several updated design features have been incorporated. The airy mesh see-through padding is still present, although it's slightly denser and placed in more optimized locations to better soak up road chatter.

Lightweight, stretchy back panels conform to your hands for a full range of motion, with mesh panels between the fingers providing breathability and a light, nonrestrictive fit. Closure is handled by a slip-fit cuff that follows the contour of the forearm at the underside of the wrist.

The Assos summerGloves_s7 are available in six sizes from X-Small to XX-Large and in the colors Black Vokanga, Red Swiss, and White Panther.

Assos Quality seems to be going down...

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

I owned this same pair of Assos gloves and they lasted 2 years with no problems. The second time I wore these new gloves the right glove stiching split.

Fantastic build quality. Tricky fit

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I use Assos bibs; I have Assos jerseys; I even have a pair of Assos socks. So I guess it was only a matter of time before I bought the gloves.

I'm coming from a pair of Louis Garneau Mondo 2 gloves which I think are pretty decent gloves, but as soon as you take the Assos out of the bags, you can tell they're built better. The fabric throughout the gloves (including the upper) are denser and the padding, both in the upper and lower palm are thicker. Whereas most of the palm of the LG other than strategic areas (like the center of the palm) have only fabric, the Assos gloves used thicker material as well. If I am to fall off my bike, I think I'd rather do so in the Assos.

But once I tried on my normal size (medium), they were very tight and difficult to get both on and off my hands. Competitive Cyclist was nice enough to send me a pair of large the try on for size. But the large also didn't feel quite right and had a lot of excess material. Examining the gloves I figured out why these didn't fit.

As other mentioned these gloves didn't have Velcro enclosure. This required the gloves to be longer (sits lower on my wrist) as well as being tight in the wrist to stay in place. But this also meant that the gloves were both tight on my wrists as well as being more difficult to put and on remove. This is especially a problem since I don't (or at least think I don't) have thick wrists. The medium actually felt quite nice on the other parts of my hands (other than the tight wrists). For comparison's sake, the larges don't feel as tight in the wrist but are actually even more difficult to put on/remove due to them being longer therefore sits even lower on my wrists. Also for comparison, the LG Mondo 2's with the adjustment Velcro enclosure and shorter wrists are quite comfortable.

I think this is the reason why some people find these gloves true to fit while others find they fit small.

I'd like to give some non-scientific measurements. I measured all three pairs of gloves from the tip of the middle finger to the bottom, both the top of the hand and palm sides. The Assos mediums were 13cm from top of middle finger to the bottom on the top of hand side and 15cm (longer due to extra wrist protection) from top of middle finger to the bottom on the palm side. The Assos larges were 14/16cm. The LG's were 12/14cm. So my initial impression that the Assos sits lower on the wrists were correct.

I have not ridden in these as I won't be able to return the non-fitting pair if I used them. I think I'll keep the medium and return the large and might update this review once I've had a couple of rides in them. Overall though, as these are $69 gloves and Assos essentially never going on sale, I find the lack of Velcro enclosure and the resulted "poor fit" disappointing, although as I mentioned, they are very well made.

Fantastic build quality.  Tricky fit

Was going to post pictures of top of hand and palm of the medium, large and LG but it appears I can only post one picture in a review. Above was medium.

Sizing Runs Small

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Large

I've only bought Assos gloves and clothing for the past 15 years and the large size gloves always fit me perfectly. I just purchased this large pair and the fit is to small and they are really uncomfortable. Assos likely changed their fit dimensions. Perhaps consider buying up one size from your normal size.

The perfect cycle glove.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Love the fit, lack of separate velcro closure and the materials. Made in Italy (not China) too is a plus.

Superb gloves !

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: L

Bought these to replace a pair of well worn Specialized BG gloves. At first I was skeptical that they would fit right and work without some type of adjustable closure. But after riding with them for the past couple of weeks I love 'em, and tossed the old BG gloves.

On first ride they seemed loose and sloppy, and my hand would move around inside the glove while riding. I thought maybe this was the price of not having an adjustable closure. But after two rides that initial sloppiness disappeared, and now they fit just like a ...oh wait ... well, they fit perfectly and stay in place as a glove should.

They are really well ventilated, with the fabric under the padding across the palm being an open weave mesh, and fabric on the back being a thin stretch fabric like a Spandex. The padding is rather amazing - very absorptive without the usual thickness or bulk, and in the right places. This leads to improved road feel over the BG gloves, with plenty of shock absorption.

These are perfect

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

I went by the sizing chart and these fit correctly. At first I thought they were to small but tried them on a few times and left one on while doing some computer work. They are snug but riding with them is great. Padding good and of course........they look way cool and Made In Italy ( on the tag!)

Nice gloves - Like tissues on your hands

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: XL

I wore these gloves to ride the Gran Fondo New York - a 100 mile ride. The fit was perfect. I sized up from the actual measurements of my hands. There is a generous amount of soft fabric to wipe the runny nose of cycling with no irritating seams to rub against the nose. My only issue is the lack of significant padding. I will not wear these again for a ride of this length but they will be perfect for rides of one or two hours.

Nice gloves - Like tissues on your hands

Great gloves!

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XL

Perfect fit. I wear an XL. Pads are perfect just thick enough for 100mi rides yet provide great bar feel. These gloves are well designed to fit without needing a velcro closure. I love the no velcro since velcro always comes open or catches on LS jerseys and jackets. Pull tabs in just the right spot for getting the gloves off- which does, and should take some effort if the gloves fit correctly. I've had these for about 8000 miles and while a bit faded they have not torn.

Great gloves

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've got large hands and the XLGs are a perfect fit. The padding is good enough for mountain biking. These are essential on hot days!

Not as good as I had hoped

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have used these gloves several times now and I have compared them on back-to-back days with my other gloves, like Pearl Izumi. It should be no comparison, but the problem I have with the Assos gloves is that they move around on my hands a little bit, because there is not Velcro closure. The Pearl Izumi gloves have a Velcro closure which prevents the movement. With these types of gloves, the fit may be much more important.

Do these fit "true-to-size"? My hand runs...

Do these fit "true-to-size"? My hand runs just a click shy of 8", chart indicates a men's 'S' would work, IF they run true to size...

Thanks :)

Debbie, these run a bit smaller than one would think. I just bought a pair of these, and my hand measures 8.6", which says a MEDIUM would do, but I had to get them in LARGE. I tried the mediums and they were unbelievably tight. I would suggest getting the one size up for you (MEDIUM). If by any chance they don't fit, you can always exchange them, or you can order them in both sizes and return the ones that don't fit. I find that their jackets and jerseys also run small (I have a few of them). I am medium in any other brand, but with Assos I always have to go one size up. By the way, these rock! I really like them!

Best Answer

Great! Thanks, I was hoping someone would review fit & performance of these...sold!

I hate to confuse the situation, but I have found that they do run true to size. I measure just shy of 7", which indicates an XS would fit. This is what I ordered and it is a perfect fit. The S's would be much too big.
