    Giro Remedy Gloves on closeout

    I left my helmet and gloves on the top of my truck and drove off

    so its shopping time!

    Anyways, these gloves are on closeout all over the place for around $20, they're the best I've ever tried. Highly recommended.

    I like d3o but those have the stuff on the outside of the palm area. Personally I prefer it on my knuckles when I ride in the woods.

    The 661 d3o gloves have a nice knuckle protection but STAY AWAY FROM THEM! Those gloves fell apart before I got to the trail! SERIOUSLY! Not one ride and the velcro was unglued as well as some stitching on the fingers came loose. If they were more durable they would have been awesome.

    I picked up a pair of these:

    They're about $35 online, the knuckles are d3o protected and they're very durable. My favorite gloves right now.

    Second all of that, but I already have two pair. Great fit.

    I'm on my 5th ride on the Remedy's and I have to say I don't think I like them.

    The glove fits really nicely, but it's like they didn't really think about where to put the seams. They land in all the wrong places. Also the d3o pad on the palm, since it is on the pinky side of the palm, kinda puts too much pressure on the meaty thumb side of the palm. Maybe if they had pads on both sides it would be better.

    Oh well, back to my Specialized BG gels.

    I don't know why anyone pays over $12 for gloves. There are great glove deals at the Lowes & Home Depots of the world.

    Doesn't really make sense, even at that price (plus what, $5-7 shipping?), when you can buy a nice set of gloves at Home Depot or Lowes for around $11-12. I've been using these type of gloves for years and have been pretty satisfied.

    Glad you like the Home Depot/Lowes gloves. I posted it because some people are interested in them. I don't like them since they don't fit my hands well. If you can pick them up, you can save shipping too. Or somebody can use JensonUSA's price to have their lbs match it, which is something I've done plenty of times. Ride whatever you like.

    D'oh! Forgot that I'd already posted that pertinent info in the thread.

    The Giro and Fox gloves fit me much better than anything from Home Depot or Lowes. I have long skinny fingers. The Fox XL is just a touch large in the palm and a little short in the fingers. The Giro were a perfect fit but started to stick to the velcro straps on my bike rack pulling and wearing out the material in the fingers. The Home Depots/Lowes gloves would feel like sandwich bags on my hands, too big, too baggy, and non-breathable.

    But, dayum, they hold up forever and protect my hands better than any MTB-specific gloves I've ever used.

    I'm 6' 3", and have a hard time finding gloves with long enough fingers, too. But I haven't had a problem w/ the box store gloves, and plus, you can try them on there, without ordering them & then finding out they don't fit.

    I'm a bit taller than you and have large hands. Size 12 in the Remedey's seem to fit just fine for me.

    Put all the d3o you want on your knuckles. You're still going to break a finger when you ram a tree at speed. But when you superman or OTB like I occasionally do, that heel pad will be nice.

    Was going to p/u the Xen gloves, but I think these will fit the bill better - more protection. Thanks for the Jenson link. Only available in white / black. Might put a Sharpie to em if the Star Wars storm trooper look doesn't work out. I take it they are the '09s.
    CRAP... I'm in the wrong gear

    I'm kind of a glove geek and love trying different models when they're cheap/on closeout. Just put a couple rides on these Giro's and they're very, very nice. In fact, think I'll order a couple more pair before they disappear.
