These are great for spring or fall riding.. or even early summer morning rides when the temps are a little cooler and when it's a bit windy outside. I would not recommend wearing these in the winter. They're not insulated and don't have a fleece lining. I didn't give these full marks because the rubber on the palms has started to peel after 3 rides which is annoying but whatever I'll survive. I do recommend if you want a very simple lightweight, long-fingered glove for the above seasons as mentioned. Or if you don't get too cold or too hot or just want a pair of great gloves. Grab them!

I'm usually one of those lycra wearing cross-country mountain bikers if I'm being totally honest here. So when I was told that I needed to wear baggies, I was doubtful I would find something I actually liked. Well, I'm glad I went with this jersey because it changed my view on mountain bike clothing in general. Very stretchy, nice and cool, airy, breathable, true to size. I attached a photo of the material up close so you could see the texture. If you ride a Yeti, this will look great. If you don't ride a Yeti, this will look great.

To start things off, I'm going to be very honest in this review... I'm typically a Continental 4000S II tire kind of girl.. always have, always will be. So when it came time to put these on my wheels, I was a little hesitant because I was afraid of all the potential flats. Here in Utah, I ride in a lot of farmland areas where goat head stickers are everywhere, as well as the busy canyons that have broken glass and other stuff from heavy winter use so I was basically just expecting to flat no matter where I'd ride. NOPE.
The first ride was a good 4 hour day which involved 3k of climbing and lots of farmland as well... NO FLATS. It has to be fluke right? So I rode the next day, then the next and realized okay it's time to pay attention to other things instead of potential flats. Once I started paying attention to the ride quality I really started to like these.. a lot. Well, how else could I put these to the test? Race them. I went and raced a weekly crit in these.. GREAT TRACTION. These tires are sticky, light, durable, and can corner well in fast turns (no it wasn't a lady crit, it was with men and women's cat 1,2's so we were cookin' on those turns!). Verdict? I'd ride these again but wouldn't make them my "go-to" tire. That's probably just a personal preference thing.. but it is PERSONAL.
Their overall purpose? I think these are a great winter tire to be honest.. the textured surface allows for increased grip on wet, uneven, crap all over the place, roads and is pretty firm for a road tire. A little too stiff for my personal riding preference but WONDERFUL overall.
