Most cycling gloves are great when they are brand new, but after a few washes they go down hill quickly. These are better than most, standing up to many dozens of washes quite well.
The velcro is of high quality and has yet to stop sticking. The gel is still gel, unlike many gloves I've had where the gel dries up and starts cracking. They fit comfortably with no pressure points.
The only issue I've had is that the reflective tape on the back comes unglued and is only connected at the sewn seam. Otherwise, they have been great.
Be careful with the black gloves on the first couple of washes. The black dye will leach out and into your other clothing. Wash with solid black apparel only for at least 2-3 washes.
When you are out over 4K miles on the bike in an 8 or 9 month period, you are going to need great gloves and these fit the bill. All gloves are NOT created equal. Your hands are busy during a ride, so, give them and your associated nerves the comfort they need!
Very well constructed. Most comfortable glove Ive owned. Love the design and materials, but thats expected from anything Pearl Izumi. The heat transfer reflective material came loose on my first ride, but I wasnt really looking for reflective properties anyway. I think it was just a fluke, but thats why I didnt give 5 stars. Price is up there, but worth it. They really do feel luxurious on my hands. The fit was spot on for me. Im not a small handed person. My hands are average, possibly slightly larger than average. I bought size large.
Red gloves. Nice color and matches some accents on the bike. My previous gloves had a leather palm. The padding appeared to have totally compressed. I would occasionally get numb hands. I am hoping these new gloves will help alleviate the issue. Even with fresh padding, I think gloves only go so far in that department. My issue is probably more my posture, etc. The gloves are comfortable. No chafe. No heat build up. Usual difficulties in removing the glove but two of the fingers have little grabber pockets to help you pull the glove off. Rarely use those grabbers so I don't tear anything.
Sizing no abnormalities with sizing. Seemed a little tight at first but the stretch is fine.
