After getting some nice size holes in my old gloves I figured it was time for a new pair. I ordered a cheaper pair of fox gloves, but after one ride went back to my old torn gloves. Then I took a pretty nice spill in a rock garden and this time got a hole on the palm. After searching I found these gloves. I was a little hesitant at first because of the last fox gloves I ordered, but after a few rides I was really pleased with these gloves. They are perfect for long rides and I luv resting the gel palms against my handle bars as I climb. If these gloves wear out/down I will order them again.
