Kurt M.wrote a review of Shimano S-PHYRE Glove - Men's on July 22, 2018
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
So I have the S-Phyre shoes and am really impressed. Saw these gloves when i was looking for some new ones, and was hesitant because they do not have any padding in the glove, but decided to give them a try.
Problem 1.: I have large hands, and have always worn the largest size glove in a products range. When I measured my hand, the sizing chart recommended a size L. I thought this was strange, but ordered them. When they arrived, didnt even try them on, way too small. I would not trust the size chart at least for people with large hands.
Ordered a second pair in XXL, they fit tight, but comfortable. After 2 rides ranging from 2 to 3 hours, I was sold, these are awesome gloves, and I would not go back to heavily padded gloves again. I really liked a more direct connection with out the bulk of pads, but still have the grip gloves provide.
Problem 2: On the third ride one of the seams ripped out. Think even in XXL my hands are just a little too big I am 6´3´´ 190 lbs.
I have never not fit a brands largest glove, but looks like these will not work for me.
If they were a little larger I would give them 5 stars.
