If you are looking to maximize versatility, then look into these. However, the super-thin lobster cover doesn't do much more than block wind (which it does very well) and doesn't add any insulation.
But having the versatility of being able to get all your finders back when you come around to the warm side of the mountain is great :-)
These are the super-lobster. They are insanely worm for how low-bulk they are.
I picked them up from a store in CA thinking they were fall gloves just because they didn't look that burly. I was mistaken and have since used them in the coldest rider i've ever done (to be fair that was only ~28F with little wind).
These are the best road gloves I've had.
These are great in dry cross country conditions. Over slabs of rocks I found them lacking and they packed up when ridden in mud.
Could have been my specific setup, however.....
I just got these installed...they are only the second cross tubulars I've owned.
They seem to corner well and all that.
What I really have to say is that the latex inner tube mentioned in the post...It definitely loses air! Brand new, it leaks as bad as road tubulars that I've put literally a thousand miles on.
Does anyone run these in 2.35? On a 29er?
I run ~2.35 on my all mountain bike (26er) but haven't used these.
Thinking about tubeless but the 29er but not sure if that much width is prudent or even useful on a 29er.
When these are setup so that just the center chevron shaped tread is in contact with the ground this thing rocks pretty hard. I was quite impressed how well it handled. It felt like a slick (smooth and fast) in dirt until I turned or found a patch of grass....then it suddenly bit down like a knobby.
My only complaint is on the pavement it let me down a little.
Haven't put enough miles on them to speak to their durability, but I haven't torn any of the little bits of rubber off yet.
