    I like the 661 Comp and Raji models. No complaints with either. No padding on the Raji model, which I really like.

    I have both '08 and '09 Raji gloves, the only difference I can see is the material between the fingers on the palm and between thumb and index finger. The '08 is kind of a plastic grippy material where the '09 is a kind of grippy synthetic suede

    OAKLEY FACTORY GLOVE

    First there is no padding to get in the way so you can really feel the grips. Cuffless so the velcro doesn't get in the way if you wear a watch and a little terrycloth on the thumb to wipe the nose. They also have a one piece palm so there isn't a bunch of stiching.

    All that and they cost $20.00

    I'm going to say BEST EVER!

    my scott team gloves have held up forever (like 4000 miles on the road bike and 1000 on the mountain bike) and are still going strong. minimal padding and finger loops, plus pittards carbon palms.

    fox full fingers have taken over the bulk of the mountain biking, and are holding up well and i like the feel of them

    Mechanix, the original. Bernie Tesco (old MBA test rider) swore by them.

    Full fingered, little if any padding, durable, cheap...brand unimportant.

    Full finger Fox. I'm not sure which one they
    are, but so far so good.

    Best, John

    Specialized Ridge. Great gloves, just enough protection and they fit well.

    I like the Fox Inclines - no padding, minimal full finger. They changed a bit last year....looking to try 661 Raji's for the next season.

    My Gel Vents were toast after one mild fall. The mesh that covers the gel pads isn't very robust and tore right out of the stitching. The mesh also tore up my grips a bit. That all being said they were very comfy.

    I have some Pearl Izumi's that my brother gave me. They work fine even though they have a fair bit of padding because my handle grips are pretty thin. With that said, I would prefer the padding to be opposite- a little more on my bars and none on the glove.

    MX bikes have the same bar-diameter as mountain bikes, so their gloves are the same, in fact they are often the exact same models. I like full fingered gloves for their protection, even on the hottest days, because your fingers are important and the nerve endings are sensitive. I like the fox dirt-paws, and in fact 3 other riders in my "group" have the same ones. The exact same kind of gloves at the MX store are usually a good bit cheaper than the "mountain biking" ones.

    Mechanix Mpact... $24 at your local Autozone.

    Original Mechanix are also a steal at $20, if you're looking for something with a little less padding.
