    glove recommendation

    anybody local recommend some gloves?

    Full Finger
    breathable
    tons of pads on the bottom - (rigid rider)
    no padding on top
    cost not a factor

    I am looking for glove very similar to the Pearl Izumi Elite Gel-Vent FF. PI changed the design and now the pads on the bottom are covered in mesh, that will only last a week in AZ with me. Just went through my last pair of PI gloves.

    I like these:

    Specialized Bicycle Components

    The mesh on top is really breathable, Body Geometry padding has held up well for me.

    I really like Dakine gloves. Their 'step up' or 'sentinal' gloves are pretty sweet. They seem to last longer than any others I've had.

    I've ran TLD gloves since the beginning of time.

    The new SE PRO gloves are the best ones yet.

    thanks Tyson, looking for a little more palm pads and lest knuckle pads on those Dakine models..

    I think I may have to check out the Specialized brand. Pearl Izumi were solid, just don't like the new mesh covering the palm pads.

    Home Depot has some GREAT full finger red gloves with black palms for $9.99, so they aren't cheap, the palms are very padded.

    Actually there's quite a bit of padding in them compared to some others.

    But let me recommend these Rocky gloves.

    Rhino,
    The specialized gloves are exactly what you are looking for.

    Rhino, I've been wearing Fox Dirtpaw's for the last 3 years...I was amazed how long they lasted and have some rubber armoring on the tops of the fingers.

    These. Before, during, and after.

    Rigid rider recently gone gloveless fulltime and loving. It was probly the age of my gloves but I found my hands hurt less without gloves during and after rides.
