Bought my first pair in Nov 2009 and have been using them up till Jun 2011! at around 200kms per week that a lot of use for a set of gloves. Ive just got a new pair and used them for two days riding the cobbles of Belgium, again they were up to the task. They are light, with the right amount of padding. They are difficult to get off but thats not really an issue. I highly recommend these gloves.

The best tire I have used bar none - I used to like Hutchinson as they were cheaper but kept getting side wall blowouts.

I have had the Conti 4000s for 2000 kms and so far they have lived up to all the reviews I have read. I was told to swap the back tire to the front after 1000kms as they take 1000kms or so to harden up. I did notice that the back tire did wear pretty quick over that time (slight flat spot) but now its been on the front for 1000kms it hasnt really worn at all, plus the tire thats now on the back has hardned up sufficiently it still looks almost new with no flat spot yet.

Im pretty sure Ill get another 2000kms out of them, which makes them well worth the price.

I bought these a few months ago, I really liked them and thought I would easily do over 2000Kms on them. They are a really nice tire and grippy too. I rode them on a stretch of highway north of Brisbane (Aus) that was covered in small bits of glass and little bits of road rock. I had to ride on the shoulder of the road for about 45kms and when I finished and checked the tire, they were cut up really bad, big deep cuts but not enough to cut right through. I cant believe that after that beating I still didnt get a flat. I have kept them on and they lasted a total of 1440km before my first flat due to a large chunk of glass cutting right through. I have purchased another pair.
- Grippy
- very tough
- great price

This is probably going to be my favourite jersey and I've only used it twice. It looks great and is really nice in the hot weather (im in Australia). The back is nearly all mesh, so its super breathable. It is tight, so if you dont like the race fit go one size up. Well worth the price when on sale.

At first I was a little dissapointed with the padding and how small these gloves were, I checked my sizing amd got a L but struggled to get them on. Then I realised that they are meant to be tight and the padding just seemed lacking compared to my last gloves.

After a few months I love these gloves, with no velcro to get in the way, and the back has soft cloth to wipe away forehead sweat. The mesh is great in the heat as well. Luckily I read past reviews regarding the loops to pull on the glove, ive been careful and had no problems.

The price is probably on the higher end but I have no complaints, they have lasted a fair few kilometers and look like they have a lot of life left in them.

Have had these for a few months now and use them almost everyday. Very comfortable even after a few hours in the saddle and great quality, no signs of wear. Im thinking of getting another pair. They are also great in the really hot humid weather where I live. Have had no problems with the straps at all and the large size fits perfecly, im 187cm and 85kg. Shipped to Australia super fast. Very impressed Realcyclist.
