    New question here. Any Good Longfinger Gloves for Trail/XC

    Can anyone recommend a good pair of long finger gloves. I ride cross country/trail so I don't need any excessive external protection, only padding for my palms and base of fingers where I get blisters. I'd appreciate some good ventilation as well, but that palm protection is a must for me.

    Thanks

    I use Giro DnD for Trailriding, very light full fingers. Very minimal padding in palms, which i like but might not be enough for you. Gloves are so personal you need to go to a shop and try them on and buy from the shop.

    Sounds good. I never thought about actually trying on gloves *facepalm*.
    Thanks

    I like the Giro DND as well. No velcro and seem to last for me. I can usually find them on sale for a great price as well...

    I have usually worn my old MX gloves (PawTector) but they have been falling apart way too quickly recently.

    I just got a set of Bontrager Lithos gloves. So far, I really like them.

    Are you sure you want padding? Usually gel or other thick pads don't always help blistering. A nice snug, thin glove usually works best for that, from my MX days. Thin clarino palm usually....

    Try SixSixOne Raji full-fingered gloves: all the right padding and slips on like a latex glove(no velcro strap).

    I have to second the DnDs. My only complaint is that the patterns that go on sale are always hideous.

    Giro anything.
    I use the Remedy which is their most protected model, and its still very ventilated.

    For me personally padding on palms (where it touches the grips) is more fatigue than without. Crash protection pads (do not touch the grips) on the other hand are always welcome.

    I've found that I get less fatigue and blistering with a tight-fitting one-piece palm with no glove padding, combined with thick soft rubbery grips. Put the padding on the bike, and keep the gloves from moving against your skin.

    I run ODI Rogue grips, and in the past have liked Fox Attack gloves. They're pretty minimalist and stay cool, but wear out in half a year of riding. I'm also liking TLD Air gloves, which feel like a sturdier, hopefully more durable version of the same.

    I'm really liking Handup gloves. I bought some online before getting a chance to try them on, and ended up with a size larger than I need. In most gloves I've bought over the years, I wear a large. But medium Handups fit awesome. Will be ordering some in the correct size.

    I've worn padded gloves for a lot of years, but I'm also preferring putting the padding in the grips (I also have ODI Rogues) and having gloves that don't rub.

    Fox Bombers. I like these better than any glove I've ever used.
