Assos summerGloves_s7 $68.95
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.
- How to Measure:
- Measure around the widest part of your hand, not including the thumb.

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. I expected much more from Assos, especially at this price point.
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...
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!
Great! Thanks, I was hoping someone would review fit & performance of these...sold!
