    Favorite Full Finger Glove?

    What's your favorite XC full finger glove? I'm looking for less knuckle and back protection with lighter weight and better venting compared to Fox Moto/DH gloves. Palm padding should be minimal.

    Pearl Izumi PRO glove... I don't know if it's discontinued though...

    Very minimal padding - just a pad in the ulnar nerve area:


    Mostly mesh back - great venting:

    Specialized Ridge. Sugoi has a nice light full fingered glove. I don't remember the name of it.

    I like the Fox Reflex. It's lightweight with vented back and just the right amount of padding.

    REI makes a pretty nice one under their Novara brand.

    If anyone is from the Northeast area, EMS (Eastern Mountain Sports) makes a great set of full finger gloves. There relatively cheap too compared to big name brands.

    Ha ha. That's probably the glove I'll get for DH but it looks a little hot and heavy for XC where I crash MUCH less.

    +1 for the REI glove. I've tried Pearl Izumi, Fox, and Oakley and these are my favorites. Just the right amount of padding and breathe well enough for Texas summers.

    I don't like the 661 Raji. It looks cool but seems cheap compared to these gloves. Actually it is cheaper but won't last as long as these.

    Another vote for Mechanix. I've been using mine for 2 years at least and they are going strong.

    I use the Novara REI ones. They hold up quite well.

    I haven't weighed any gloves but I just figured that I'd get a second pair of gloves for XC use that are lighter, and better vented without the crash protection that I don't need. I'm probably getting Unibombers for DH and Moto.

    I wear the women's version of those PI gloves posted above, and I think they're great.

    I wear Giro Monaco gloves. They are road gloves, but are full finger and have great ventilation. They seem to be a little better made then many of the other gloves on the market.

    I think some of the 661 gloves (if not all) are made by Mechanix.

    I've been riding the Fox Incline Gloves for the past few years. Not very expensive, light and excellent finger tip traction. I also have big hands, and they make a 2XL that fits perfect! You can get them as cheap as $12.00 or less.
