So they dont offer much protection... just the palms.. the airflownis great. My favorite gloves, but can only use in summer. They were tight at first.. but after break in.. ooohh these gloves just feel so good! A little pricey for what you get.. i have the older red color and paid 1/3 of the price... best $10 i ever spent.. now its fall and cold... i miss wearing these.
I got these as my first pair of gloves when i was riding on the back of my father's bike. I got them in a medium and at first they felt fine, but as i started to ride my own bike i realized they were way too tight. Every time i would take them off after any length of riding, i had indents in both hands no matter where my hands were or how tightly i was holding on. I also noticed that they offered little in terms of wind breaking. My hands were frequently getting cold from the wind even though it was a nice warm temperature. I wore them for about 2 years before i got new ones, which i am extremely happy with.
The gloves are comfortable but are not as breathable as I expected and this was my main concern. Although they have a mesh on top, the air doesn't circulate that much making them a little too warm for the summer. Also there is an area under the thumb and the fabric doesn't seem to last for too long.
