Description

summerGlove_s7

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.

  • Flexible, stretchy slip-on cycling gloves for warm rides
  • Durable fabric allows for a full range of motion
  • Slip-on design makes for an easy on and off
  • Grippy palm locks onto your grips

These gloves are so light and airy it feels like you have nothing but padding attached your palms! Great for really hot days. Quality is top notch and what you would expect from Assos. Not sure on the sizing, followed the chart and went with XL but wish I had gone with L for a little bit more snug fit.

I’m a big fan of these gloves. They fit true to size, have comfortable padding, and are super lightweight. Pretty much the quality you would expect from Assos. Docking a star because some of the stitching has started coming out on the front of one glove after about 500 miles. No impact on performance (yet) but unexpected for a glove at this price point.

Bought these because I generally like all things Assos as they are usually top notch. These are well made gloves but they are unbelievable irritating to ride with. The padding is too much and too soft so your hands slide around inside the gloves and the bar feel is completely lost. These are just not performance or race ready. Best suited for the casual newbie rider.

These are great gloves. I bought them to replace my Castelli Rosso Corsa Espresso gloves, which weren't as comfortable as I'd hoped. I like the hem on the thumb which keeps it from rolling downward (like the Castellis do). Good padding and comfortable. Recommended!

I want to love these gloves, I really do. They do keep your palms cool with the mesh design and I love that they don't have hook and loop closure. They do take some wriggling to get on, but that is expected without the velcro. Here's the major design flaw: There is a very large seam at the exact spot where your hand presses against the hood. I rode with them for two hours this morning and was in pain from start to finish. I can't keep these, unfortunately.

I wish I had listened to your review, very uncomfortable.

Just got these and wore them on a quick errand trip to test them out. Can't speak to durability yet, but so far so good. I usually wear gloves on any summer ride, especially longish (for me) 20-50 milers, for the extra padding and grip (I sweat a lot, even my hands). What I immediately like about these is the design - the lack of velcro, the lightness/breathability of the fabric, comfort, and looks. Padding in all the right places, too. Looking forward to giving these a real test, but I can already tell I'm going to like them. Usually a women's medium, bought the men's small and they fit great.

These are the best summer gloves I've ever owned. I'm on the second season with my first pair and plan on buying another soon. They're extremely well constructed and breathe better than any summer glove out there. They are on the smaller side, but order the size you usually wear, they will break in and fit great.

I too like that they slip on and off with no pull tab or velcro. Normally do not wear gloves, but needed sun protection for riding in the middle east. Assos products are never inexpensive, but these ride great, wear great, and protect from the sun greatly too. Longevity is undetermined, but the brand Is known to last. I’ve got some bibs from 2003 that are still in circulation, and a couple of jerseys from the late 90’s that are still in use too!

I bought the medium and they are tight but once on fit well and are comfortable. I like Assos gear because of quality and design and these gloves are exactly that.

I never paid much attention to my gloves before reading these reviews. All gloves I wore are OK, whether they expensive or cheap. But Assos gloves are way above others. I have 3 pairs of Assos gloves, 2 pairs for about 5 years, and they are just outstanding quality, fit and comfort. That being said, I bought them on sale, not sure if I would pay $70 for the pair of gloves. For Assos Summer S7 Gloves I paid $31.

I have used these 12 times. So far so good. I usually buy a large for gloves and I bought XL and they fit well. The opening is small so I just take care taking them on and off and I have no problems.

I have had great luck with the Assos summer gloves. They are really really comfortable, fit is great all around, they are on the euro size chart, so a little smaller. Very cool in summer, great feel on the bars with or without tape, no slipping. I see some reviews where they stitching or material has torn, I would go for the warranty on those. Mine have held up great. I own two pair myself and another for a family member.

What is the best way to remove these “fit like a glove” gloves. I tore the seam (such small tear... one stitch but I heard it) first time removing. Assos actually replaced immediately.... but I don’t wa t a repeat

Hey Mike, Assos really needs reinstall the two little pull loops they had on their Prosline and first edition Summer Glove. I've had mine for 15+ years, they're torn-up, feel great and look like hell! I just purchased the Specialized Grail... I hope they hold up.

I bought these gloves 3 months ago. They have completely worn out on the right hand. Is this that famous Assos quality? I will be returning these. Hopefully for a refund. I cannot hassle with getting a new pair of gloves every three months. I like the fit. If I only rode 1000 miles per year they would be fine. Otherwise, hard pass.

Simply the most comfortable gloves I own

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer
Fit:
True to size

I wear things out, riding around 15-22K km per year. These Assos gloves tend to last me around six to nine months before wearing out at the top of the palm where friction is highest. I find them far and away the most comfortable gloves I own, if not the longest wearing. Other reviewers have commented that the gloves don't last long, but Assos strives for comfort and performance over longevity. If you want long lasting gloves, buy leather and knit gloves, which will last forever and will be quite comfortable. If you want gloves that feel incredibly good for long days on a bike, buy these. I disagree that sizing is tricky on these gloves. I wear a medium in every glove I've ever tried, and these are no exception. Maybe I'm just average.

I'm a huge Assos fan and have a variety of their products. My philosophy on cycling gear is "Buy the best & only cry once". But these gloves just didn't hold up. Two rides and the stitching in the palm is loose and the pad is coming out. Maybe I just got a defective pair but just not the quality I'm use to from Assos.

I've had over 20 pairs of gloves in 6 years. The problem with gloves is that you don't really know if they are right for you until you've ridden all the kinds of rides that you do—short, long, climbing, cool, sweltering hot. I really didn't like paying $69 for a pair of gloves, but I've had $29 and $49 gloves fall apart after a few rides. One after just one ride. Fit: I wear XL gloves by other companies and these XL fit me quite nicely. Velcro: None, and that is a good thing. I hate how velcro snags on everything, especially in the wash (yes, I fasten them). I hate how I sometimes forget to fasten them on a ride. Despite that, more than half the gloves I've owned have been harder to remove than these. Quality: These are well made. After 10+ rides, nothing is worn out or coming apart. Adornments: Unlike some other gloves, there are NO glued on features. Why any glove maker would put iron-on decorations on a glove is beyond me. They come off so quickly and look ratty. Color: I like red, but most of my red gloves (and other clothing) fade to pink or orange in less than a year. Time will tell with these, but a friend has had his for 2 years and they still look good. That was the main reason I bit the bullet and got these.

I agree with your Velcro comments. Furthermore, they ruin long sleeve gear when they snag on sleeves, Fraying expensive gear is not cool.
