Great gloves!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Form fit, snug but not tight. Fingers long enough (I wear XL) so no binding. Simple and effective closure at the wrist.Cool color.Full glove is warm, but not hot, even in summer.
'nuff said.

Great lightweight summer glove

Nice glove for summer riding - mesh back keeps things cool and the palms aren't too heavy and have good grip/ feel. The finger tips are thin enough that I can use my iPhone without taking them off. These aren't really padded at all, which I prefer for XC riding. So far they've been pretty durable. The velcro closure is a little wider and beefier than older Fox gloves that I've had - in the past I've had trouble with thinner velcro closures blowing out by the end of the season, but it seems like these gloves will hold up better on that front

Remind me of older motocross style glove

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I used to ride dirtbikes all of the time and the Sidewinder reminds me of some of the older Fox moto-gloves. Not a lot of padding in the palms but enough to keep you comfortable.

As other review say they do run quite snug (read small) I would order a size up if you are in doubt.

I use them for XC and some enduro-style riding. Kept me cool in the summer and protected from most wind up until mid November. (Michigan weather, including some warm-snow days.)

Pretty durable. I put quite a bit of time on them last year and aside from looking used due to sweat and dirt they are functionally flawless. Should easily get a second season out of them.

Great gloves, great price. Pick some up now.

Very little wear on the palms, even after a full year.

Nice Glove

Used them all season in the hottest weather for DH and xc. They keep your hands nice and cool. Had a couple of nasty crashes but they have held up well. Better for xc or all mountain because they don't have a lot of padding. overall good gloves.

Good Glove, but Could Use More

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are very good thin-palm XC gloves. They breath well, they're grippy, and they still protect your hand in a crash. I bought three or four pair on sale for $15 and they're well worth that. Full price they're a little overpriced though.

I bought the white because though white MTB gloves are silly, I have colored ESI grips and I didn't want my gloves to stain the grips. So far so good, my pink and red grips have no trace on them. The white actually stays reasonably white too with semi-regular washing.

They last a good long time, probably a full season of riding or race. The velcro strap separated for me (velcro came off the rubber); I was disappointed to learn that it's not stitched at all, just glued. Two minutes with a hot glue gun totally fixed it though.

My biggest gripe is no soft patch on the thumb for nose wiping.

They fit the same as all the other Fox gloves I have; I wear XL in fox and these are true to that size. It's L for a lot of other brands though, so you might want to size up a little bit.

Good XC glove

They started out too tight but have stretched into the perfect fit. The palm material is comfortable and grippy. If you need to cool your hands spread your fingers and the mesh sides allow air flow.

Not my cup of tea.

First off then run small, order a size up. Second they just did not have enough padding for XC/FreeRides. Ordered the Fox Racing Reflex Gel Gloves and been super happy with them. I keep these around as backups or for guest.

Pretty good

Overall these gloves are pretty good.
I ordered a large and they are a little snug for a large, but will work.
