    Suggestions on new mountain bike gloves

    I need some suggestions on some new Mountain biking gloves for under $45. Needs to be full finger protection. Should have green and black or just black. Thanks for the comment

    I just picked up a pair of Fox Digit gloves for $20. Just a single layer suede palm but they are very comfy and have some grip on the fingertips for gripping the brake levers.

    I like and wear One Industries Zero gloves. Under $20 on closeout on Rocky Mountain MC with lots of color choices.

    Motocross gloves are the best values in gloves. There are hundreds of different choices and many are just as light as a pair of cycling gloves. As an added bonus, many of them are priced way under $20.

    I've learned over the years that $28 Mechanix gloves will take more slides on the palm over any single layer mtb glove on the market. The mechanix2 gloves are a $45 equivalent of any $50 to $80 mtb glove.

    I run these for AM, $51

    I've not seen 1 pair of mtb glove for less than $50 that has knuckle protection and dual layer palms!

    I'm fond of my Fox Digits. I actually prefer unpadded for MTB.

    It's more hit and miss than it used to be but keep checking the Spesh web site for closeouts on their stuff. They used to have consistently amazing deals. I was getting MTB shoes for $15 a pair until recently and even last year I stocked up on gloves for $5 a pair. The sales are much less frequent than they used to be, I guess the secret is out. You just have to keep your eyes open for them.

    Pick up some Mechanix work gloves at the hardware or auto parts store - many styles from light duty to heavy duty available. The last ones I bought came 2 pair to a package.

    Make sure to try on a few different sizes of gloves. If they're too big, your hands could slide around while riding, negating the benefits of added grip.

    Thats what I use too and absolutely love them for bike gloves. There's no uncomfortable seam on the palm under the base of my thumb and the clarino palms are super grippy even when wet. I usually get a full season out of a pair but I also use them for trail work, yard work, working on the car etc.

    I use mechanics gloves too... I have some Chickenhawk Racing ones.. They are a US based tyre warmer company and as I was importing their products for a while I ended up with a few pairs and they are tough, warm but still ventilated and not too hot on the back of your hands. They grip well and have good protection..

    Haha they look pretty much exactly like my Specialized gloves from the early(ish) 2000's! Pretty sure I paid more that $50 back then!

    I agree with the Mechanix gloves. I currently use the Snap-On version but same type of glove. Craftsman makes similar gloves as well.

    I use motor cross gloves except in really cold rides. Love my Fox Bombers:

    Think I paid something like $40 - was a while ago so not too sure. They do green and black or just plain black.

    I love my Answer Fall Line XC gloves. Comes in green and black or black among other colors and you can usually find them on sale for dirt cheap on various mountain bike online stores or the clymb
