    Summer Gloves

    Just got back into riding after a long time off.

    After today's ride I realize I need some summer gloves. I want something with good ventilation, but enough coverage to protect from the thorn bushes etc... hanging out into the trails.

    Current recommendations?

    Thanks

    Specialized Ridge are the best minimal padding full finger glove I've tried. I know someone will recommend SixSixOne Raji gloves but their quality sucks compared to Specialized.
    I have these and love them.

    Head to HOME DEPOT and shop for work gloves. They're getting really, really sophisticated these days. Padded palms, knuckles, suede palms, finger tips, and stretch Lycra. Best part is they run from about $4.88 to $20.

    I like the $4.88 stuff, utilitarian and I don't worry about trashing them.
