My hands go numb with other gloves, but the Pearl Izumi gloves like these have the pads in the right location for me. I really like not having the Velcro, which makes them easier to wash with my other bike stuff.
I've been using the prior generation of pro gel glove, the vented one with the velcro strap. Liked those just fine, but these are an improvement.
Actually easier to get on and off
Better palm surface, on the prior generation the gel pads started to delaminate from the glove
Gloves slipped all over my hands especially when riding a mountain bike (paved trail). The issue has lessened with more use. The gel pads were not that big of an improvement over P.I.'s select gloves. I purchased a pair of select gloves at the same time and will save some money by sticking with them the next time I purchase. I think a strap at the wrist would improve the performance of the gel gloves. The select gloves include this feature.
Great gloves that fit perfectly, lightweight and no velcro. Don't know why most gloves come with velcro adjustable cuffs. If the glove fits properly its completely unnecessary. Pearl Izumi quality also a plus. Will need to order more pairs of these to keep in the rotation.
A bit hard to take off since no finger pull tabs. But after several uses they stretch a bit and removal gets easier.
No velcro strap to snug them up so be sure to order the right size. I have small hands and the large size fits perfectly. Just enough padding in just the right spots.
I use a lot of PI products for road riding. Once you snug this pair on, they fit comfortably and provide good padding during the ride. Because they don't have a velcro strap, they need to be tugged on and off. But they come with little assist-straps to help with this. One of the big upsides is how easy they are to wash in the sink. With a drop or two of Dawn and warm water, they clean up quickly and smell fresh for the next ride.
I love these gloves because the padding is not too thick nor is it too thin! I also love that thereï¿½s no Velcro strap to have to mess with. I just wore these gloves riding across the state of Colorado and they were awesome!
This is a high-quality glove, functions well. and has a clean look which I was looking for. I like the gel padding and overall its a comfortable glove. Why I give this a 4/5 is after a couple of months some of the stitching came loose, but I have had this same problem with other gloves as they take a beating.
