The Good: no bulky padding or seams in the wrong place, has the motto "pop wheelies" on it
The Bad: tight wrist enclosure, grippers came off too soon
I've been through a bunch of gloves over the years and so far theserise to the top as my favorites. I am now on my second set of these gloves, after recently picking up a new pair when looking to bump up my online shopping cart to free shipping status.
Many gloves have rubber grippers on the fingers but the TLD air gloves have expanded that concept and have added some to the palm area as well. This makes your hands feel like they are glued to the bar, especially if you have a fresh set of grips. A downside is that the rubber grippers on fingers started to come off sooner than I had hoped (after about 6 rides they began peeling off slowly).
I have found the minimalist style of glove fits my preference and the shape of these gloves fits my hands. The fabric itself is thin, yet the weave on it make it tough enough to handle the occasional dab with the earth. There is one thing about the fit that I'd prefer to be changed and that is the velcro wrist enclosure which is tight in my opinion. A longer strap would be better as currently only a small section of the end of the strap is able to "catch" and keep it together, but I haven't had it come apart when riding so no major issue here.
Despite a couple of minor complaints, these remain my go-to gloves.
