I purchased this pair on a lark, at a great price on the BTD site; I wasn't sure how they would hold up, but so far, so good, after 1-2 months of use, and machine washing. These fit great (snug-so pay close attention to manufacturer's fit recommendation, prior to purchasing). The grip is great, and they are easy to put on and remove. The elastic in the wrist area is good. There are no "added features": No Velcro closure, no terry cloth nose wiper, no thick padding...nothing additional. However, it fits great, grips great (I sometime like a fitted glove with NO additional padding, as I like that how that feels better on the handlebars). It's also a sharp looking glove...I bought the color with the white palms, so, as expected, that gets dirty quickly and easily. I do wash in machine, but that doesn't get all the stains off when you use the palm to rub debris off your tires, etc. They are still holding up well though, and still looks and feels good. If you like a "minimalist" full finger summer glove, this is an excellent option.
I found these while shopping for a non padded glove for grip and bar "feel." The price was shockingly low, so I bit. Found the strap free wrist desirable, personally. These are very tight and almost surgeon-like to pull on. The touch screen sensitive pointer finger and thumb are an excellent plus. I don't expect these to last forever, but they've already added a bit more "feel" with my bars and certainly more confidence in the drops or the air.
I was looking for a lightweight summer glove and bought these because they looked like they would fit the criteria I was looking for. First off no Velcro closure was a must and lighter colors. So far these have been great for road and off-road ridding in hot and mild temps. They breathe well and are supper comfortable.
Bottom line great light weight, comfortable glove for not a lot of cash.
Great lightweight trail glove, optimal feel on the bars. Spring/summer use with decent perforation. I prefer the strap less slip on design. Only time will tell how they hold up and don't count on them offering much protection in a fall.
The fit is awesome. Very comfortable. At this price point they are great.
However, they are far from rugged. On the first very ride it developed a hole between my thumb and index finder. biketiresdirect took care of it- Within a day. Unbelievably good service in these trying times. Kudos to the folks at biketiresdirect.
Very supple, the phone touch is very good and they are a nice lightweight glove. They are not padded, which I need for longer rides but for most of my rides I don't so these are awesome.
I have worn Giro DND gloves, size XL for at least 10 years. Never a problem. Ordered these gloves in XL. I could not even begin to get them on my hands. Gave them to my neighbor, a woman.
Because my fingers are ever susceptible to rather severe chapping, no matter the season, I require a full finger glove for riding. This can be a nuisance in warm weather, but the Trixter offerings from Giro come near to perfect for my needs. At first they seem small and a bit difficult to get on, but the snug fit obviates the need for closures, velcro and the like. Like most cycling gear, gloves are very much a personal preference. The Trixters from Giro get my vote for a well thought out summer glove.
