    Fox gloves...Digit vs. Inlcine?

    I reallly like Fox Digit full-fingered gloves:

    but am looking for something a little cooler in summer. The Incline looks interesting:

    but nobody locally carries this glove....anybody who has worn both? Please comment...I hate ordering clothing online without knowing how it really is going to fit.

    I've used the Inclines for years now because they are a lightweight full finger glove and they have no palm padding. I like them for the thin-ness of them, others don't. They last a long time as well. I almost tried the Digit's but decided not to bother since I ride in Phoenix and the they seem "heavier". When I get the Inclines on sale they are 15 bucks, the Digits are much more typically.

    FWIW the sizing seems spot on, measure you hand width and go with the recommended size.

    Inclines - awesome! I've got several pair. Protection where you need it, mesh where you don't.

    +1 for Incline. very good grips on the handlebar. It's so light, it's like riding naked.

    I picked up a pair of Fox Reflex Gloves yesterday and they seem to nicely split the difference between the Digit and the Incline for summer riding at least. I haven't ridden with them yet, but I'm pretty hopeful after doing an extensive fit check at the shop yesterday.

    Tried gel or foam padding on the palm before....feels like uncomfortable lumps to me.

    Tried on Specialized Enduro

    http://www.specialized.com/us/en/bc/...12234&eid=5004

    and Ridge gloves

    http://www.specialized.com/us/en/bc/...12234&eid=5004

    today and they seemed pretty good. Enduro was nice but maybe not quite as snug and a bit too much padding on palm and backside of hand? Ridge was better on snug fit but the backside seems kinda thin and light duty. The web area between thumb and index finger on both of these gloves seemed maybe a bit too thick of layers of material....kinda hard to tell how they are going to fit riding down the trail....

    I just bought a pair of Fox digits last week. I love them. No padding on the palms, sizing is great, and they dry out quickly.

    I got my Digits on Chainlove for ~$13 and have enjoyed them so far. Haven't tried the Inclines yet though to compare.

    Picked up 2x Digits off Chainlove also. Previously I was riding Longhorns I had backstock on from the late 90's...last pair is just now wearing out. I love the confirmation email "Holy crap. Your stuff just shipped." hehe

    I have the digits. I like them very much. I ride full finger year round though (and yes it gets hot here).

    Thanks, saw that the other day...did they fix their credit card security? Recall they got breached and people were getting bogus charges a while back....

    I've never felt like the Digit's make me over heat or anything. Actually the reason I moved to full-finger is because my hands sweat in the summer and with 3/4 gloves I can't stand my sweaty ass fingers ugh.

    +1 on the digits. Taken a few spills in them and they are still going strong

    Yeah, I used to wear half gloves...that stopped after a bad crash in a very rocky tech section and lots of bloody knuckles.

    I've been rocking the Digits for the last 2 years. Man they are comfortable and take a beating.

    +1 for the digits. I bought mine a couple months ago and they are awsome. They have taken a beating and are wearing (Or lack there of) great

    Ordered from Nashbar and received two pairs of the Fox Inclines....I like them and we'll see how they hold up compared to my couple pair of Digits. I always buy two pair of the gloves that I like so that if something happens to one glove it still has a match from the other pair. Also found that rotating a couple pairs makes them last longer. One pair in my Camelbak and one pair on my hands.

    I only use gloves with no padding. Been riding inclines for a few years. I've gotten them on sale at performance for as low as $12.99.

    I just got a pair of '10s and they doubled up the material in part of the palm. I was a little disappointed at the added thickness but they feel ok.

    I also like Inclines. A light "summer" glove. Usually I wear holes in them after using them a year or less, but that is OK with me. I just buy another pair (or two as they are inexpensive).

    My 2 pair arrived and looked nice. I've worn them once on the trail and they work about the same as Digits, little cooler and not quite as snug around the wrist due to a wee bit more stretchy fabric in that area. I like em and they were a real bargain from Nashbar for $12.95 a pair.

    UPdate for this posting....been riding the Inclines for months and they are good lighter weight gloves, but don't fit as snugly on my hand and fingers as the Digits. They also are not as good when riding in the woods where blackberries and other brush often whip across the back of my hands because they are not as thick and lack the foam pad reinforced backside that the Digits have. The Inclines are a great value and a good glove especially for hotter weather, but I'm going to buy some Digits next time for the snugger fit (imo this very close fit gives more control) and added protection.

    Old original post but I'll put in my .02 anyway.

    Had Digits before, Loved them. They saved my knuckles when I went OTB on some pavement. They didn't save my bar end from smashing into my groin though. Only reason I don't have them now is because I lost them and could only find a pair of Dirtpaw at the LBS.
