Bad Quality

I've used it several times

Got one pair, got torn apart in no time. CC sent me a replacement.. same as the first pair.. did not last long.

Nice minimalist gloves

I bought 2 pair. They do run small--usually wear a medium, order a medium and they are tight but wearable--so I'd recommend one size up. I like that they have little padding, good gripping surface and look good. No complaints--you forget you have them on.

Too Small

I returned this product before using it
Size Bought:
5' 6"

Way too small. I ordered LARGE, wear a medium, and the gloves are still too small and tight.

Tore the First Day

I've used it several times

The first time I used this glove, one of the seams tore. The stitching separated between the wrist and the thumb as I pulled it on. I would not buy this product again.

Airy, minimal padding, great grip.

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

What you can't tell by pictures is the additional grip provided by the line looking things on the palms which provide much more tacky grip than a standard glove palm. Not sure about longevity, as I just got them. For me, I think they fit similar to specialized and pearl izumi and larger than giro.

Not for thick hands

I returned this product before using it

I have big hands and so usually I have to get XXL sizes. I thought, lucky me this one comes in XXL. I couldn't get them on my hands at all. The "high stretch cuff" doesn't stretch enough and there are no fasteners so when the stretch is done, it's either ruin the glove or return them. I chose the latter. Shame. They seemed pretty nice, but definitely didn't fit.

I returned this product before using it

The 2XL should more accurately be considered a medium. This isn't just a *little* small; my hand wouldn't remotely fit into this glove. The size chart suggests XXL would fit >26cm hand circumference, but only actually measure 21cm around. 5cm of negative ease would be an enormous amount of stretch, except that the back panel pattern has stitching that prevents most of that potential stretch.

Nice breathable glove

I've put it through the wringer

These gloves have held up well for me through the summer. A little bit of a pain to get on and off, but that?s not a big deal to me since they are so breathable. They have the right amount of padding on the palm and seem to last. I?ve ridden 1300mi with these gloves and they are showing only a little abrasion on the palm. Great for the hottest days. My bar tape is Supacaz which doesn?t seem to be too destructive towards gloves. Maybe that explains their durability that others have not experienced.
