    “Perfect all rounder glove”

    The Good: thin palm, color options

    The Bad: nothing really

    Overall Review:

    Some riders go glove-less but I like gloves on my hands (thin palm only please). There are countless times I've been thankful I've worn them during crashes, etc. and the Fox sidewinder are the best I've worn over the past 9 years or so of mtb. I wear them on everything from local trails to the bike park.

    I have to say that I wish there was a softer fabric on the backside which comes in handy when wiping sweat from your face, but the tough fabric found on the sidewinder holds up to abuse better.

    The only thing that threw me off at first was that the glove comes up a bit high on the wrist but that doesn't interfere with anything and may just give a little extra support and protection for the wrist.

    “good glove - comfy”

    The Good: comfortable fit, durable (had to clear the chain when it went off the cog into the spokes), palm material grippy

    The Bad: no thumb terry cloth

    Overall Review:

    I've had my gloves for 9 months, riding Tues/Thurs/Sat. No wear showing on the palms or thumb (I've worn through the thumb area on other gloves). Comfy in the heat (Phx, AZ rider) the palm doesn't get all clammy when the sweat starts running. Excellent and would buy again.
