I use these gloves for both MTB and road riding. I've purchased 3 pairs of these over time, that's how much I like them. Pros Breathable - haven't felt over heated riding up to mid-90s F. I definitely prefer gloves with the flatuniform padding in the palm, especially for MTB riding and these have that with no palm leather durability issues. Fit - sizing chart is right on. Price is right on. Wash and dry easy. Cons Durability of the wool backing part - I've had one small hole near the thumb develop on one pair, but given how much trail riding I've done I'm not surprised.
