    New question here. Full-finger glove recommendations



    All of my crashing at Big Bear this year has caused my gloves to bite the dust. I ride mostly DH, so I need to have full finger glove protection.

    I have been using the Women's specific Axo Descend gloves, but I can't seem to find them anymore. My problem is that I have very small hands and the Men's small gloves do not fit. Does anyone know if there are any companies that make Men's XS gloves or women's gloves. Thanks!

    I have some Fox Static gloves that fit really well (S) They run smaller than my Small Louis Garneau, REI and Pearl Izumi gloves. They are my favs

    Look the Specialized 04 Fortress Glove

    Ultimate protection in gloves. This is the only carbon cycling glove to actually offer carbon on the thumb and wrist bone


    Carbon on knuckles, wrist bone and thumb knuckles

    Mesh top and finger gussets keep you cool and dry

    Three-piece Clarino palm for a snug fit

    Body Geometry padded Palm for comfort

    TPR armor on top of hand and fingers

    Hook and loop rubber wrist strap
    If you wish to be out front, then act as if you are behind

    Axo is now Sixsixone and it looks like they're no longer making a WS version of descend. Here's the link anyway: http://www.vsportgroup.com/gear/glove_descend.html

    I was glove shopping myself and came across this: SixSixOne Nasty in XS. It's got a thin palm so not sure if it's what you need.

    Personally I would go with Fox Sidewinders. I had a pair of 02s which served me well and I recently bought a pair of 03s, which I like over 04s. Fox makes 04 Sidewinders in XS and XXS. But I don't know where you can get them besides the Fox online store. Hope that helps.
