Above says it all. Well made with quality materials. padding in all the right place. Sweat resistant. no fading. Stitching is tight and say that way. Washable. no velcro to wear out or snag. I get 2-3 summers of regular use. Most glove last one season at most. Well worth the cost and I have used many glove brands over the years.
If you are a ride who likes a pretty thick palm pad on your gloves, and doesn't mind them being a bit "slippy", then these are great. They are comfy and high quality, for sure. But I do think I prefer my tighter, thinner, more minimalist POC gloves to these. I just feel like I lose too much feel with their looseness. And I am sure I got the correct size, because I measured my hand and used that to order the pair, and they do _fit_ my hands.
Great lightweight glove and Assos quality. Price reasonable compared to Castelliother gloves, but still not incredibly affordable at all. Padding is great, not too bulky or small.
Gloves have and should continue to hold up (and I have been washing regularly). FYI, like many straplessfitted gloves, you have to be careful not to tug too hard when removing (eg avoid seam tears), but the tabs on fingers work and no problems thus far.
Comfortable and light, with light padding. My hands measure 8.5-9 and are thin, medium was snug, large a bit loose. I went with large to accommodate swelling and have no regrets.
Ive been wearing a pair of these for several years now and figured it was time to replace, although the old ones are still not ripped or torn...
Anyways very happy to see they appear to be same quality!
I am a big Assos fan. use their bib shorts and jerseys all the time. These gloves were terrible! The plastic like material between the thumb and first finger just bunches up causing my first two fingers and thumb to go numb after just 25 miles of riding.
This not the high quality I have come to expect from Assos.
When I first purchased, I could barely get my hand into the glove because the wrist opening was so small. After a few rides it seemed like the glove itself stretched quite a bit. Initially, I found the seams to be quite painful, but I have gotten used to them. I love Assos, but would probably recommend other glove options.
Not having wrist straps is no problem at all in fact it saves wear and tear on other clothing in the wash. these are very comfortable and there is lots of ventilation
Very comfortable gloves. These are my second pair after loosing my last one. The last were over a year and 6K miles of riding and no sign of where. Not 100% sure they are worth the high price, but they do seem to last forever and are very comfortable.
