    “Great Lightweight Breathable Glove - 5 stars!”

    The Good:

    Super feel and control. If you usually ride without gloves to increase feel for the trail then these are the gloves for you. Pretty plain looking with great breathability. Fairly inexpensive at under 30 dollars.

    The Bad:

    The older versions had a terry thumb panel for wiping your face and nose that was handy. Now it's gone and they've replaced it with a panel that isn't quite as soft but does still work.

    Overall Review:

    Great value and feel. If you hit the ground these have just enough to keep your hands happy. Lightweight feel makes them perfect for summer riding. They are true to size. I can operate my galaxy smartphone with them on. Not sure if that's important to everyone, but for those that do Strava and listen to Pandora it's a benefit not to have to take off your gloves to start, stop, open and close apps while riding. I'm going five stars as this is my 5th+ pair of them and never flinch on buying another set. Heard some reviewers at other sites saying they had troubles with graphics and seams, but I've never had either of those problems.

    “High Expectations”

    The Good:

    Brand, Durability, Styling

    The Bad:

    Confused, Styling

    Overall Review:

    Let me start off by saying these gloves are nice! I like them!.. a lot actually, so why didn't I give them 5 stars? well, they are a little confused. How so?.. They say XC on them, as in cross country, as in pedal mashing, cadence clambering, hear rate hiking, crack sweating cross country! So then why are they so thick? Should I add hand sweating to that list as well? The branding makes no sense, wouldn't you want your hands to breathe a little more? maybe go for a thinner material? But at the same time that is exactly what makes these gloves so awesome! They are thick and durable because of this I use them for downhill racing and Read More »

But at the same time that is exactly what makes these gloves so awesome! They are thick and durable because of this I use them for downhill racing and enduro riding. So XC? maybe not, but a pair of bad ass gloves that will handle high speed crashed without tearing? Heck Yes! I recommend these bad boys for everything BUT XC, they are great!.. And did I mention? they are Troy Lee Designs .. BUY EM!

    “They do the job”

    The Good:

    Good air flow, light weight, large variety of colours and sizes, touch screen compatible, leather edging near wrist.

    The Bad:

    Velcro strap stops working, too thin for long rides, TLD logo peels off .

    Overall Review:

    I have been riding with these gloves for 9 months now and have overall been satisfied with how they have protected my hands. They have covered a large variety of impacts, from the big step down crashes to the embarrassing "i couldn't un-clip from my pedals" falls.

    I'll start with the negative and end with the good.

    THE NEGATIVE

    Velcro strap: The velcro strap which keeps the glove tight around your wrist is the main negative and let down in this product. After about 10 rides the velcro strap looses it's strength and manges to comes loose constantly when riding. It is a fairly bignuisancewhen you have to re-strap it multiple times.

    I'll start with the negative and end with the good.

    THE NEGATIVE

    Velcro strap: The velcro strap which keeps the glove tight around your wrist is the main negative and let down in this product. After about 10 rides the velcro strap looses it's strength and manges to comes loose constantly when riding. It is a fairly bignuisance when you have to re-strap it multiple times.
    Padding: The glove's padding and thickness is okay for a couple of hours of riding, but becomes less and less effective the longer you ride. There almost comes a time when you wish to take them off due to it being too thin.

    Decals: TLD needs to step it up when it comes to the decals and rubber logos on their gloves. The TLD logo and rubber designs start to detatch from the fabric. I have found this too occur on their older style gloves also.

    THE POSITIVE

    Air flow: TLD have made 6 small pin sized holes in a triangle shape on the palm of the glove which help increase air flow. I find these to be useful when my hands are off the grips and the wind can actually reach them. There are also two holes on each finger of the glove except for the thumb slot.

    Pricing: The price for the XC TLD glove is decent and not too expensive or over the top compared to some other brands.

    Colour Options: The variety of colours offered for this glove will help any rider complete their riding kit. A negative to the colouring over time is that it begins to fade and turn brown if you neglect to wash the glove for a while.

    Weight: The glove has a light weight feel to it, which is what you'd expect from a xc glove, however, this is counter balanced by the little amount of padding which becomes noticeable after some time riding.

    Touch Screen Compatible: The glove is very easy to use with a touchscreen such as a phone or Garmin, even in the wet!

    Leather edging: There is a thin roll of leather edging around the wrist and velcro strap of the glove which gives the glove a enclosed feel and sense of security for nothing to be able to get inside the glove when wearing it (e.g.- rocks, dirt). This small feature is very convenient for when you hit the ground.

    “Good Gloves, Famous Brand, Reasonable Price...”

    The Good:

    Cool designs, fit in my hands, reasonable price..

    The Bad:

    I feel something 'disturbing' on the part between thumbs and index fingers. Needs more little time to make it really installed properly in my hands.

    Overall Review:

    Like anything, the gloves attracts me with the designs and finally I chose the white one. I use this gloves for XC mountain biking, and for motorcycle, and this gloves is done well. The only problem is like I said above: I need more little time to make sure that this gloves is installed properly in my hands, because I feel something disturbing.But overall, I like this gloves. I feel my hands cool and this is good point. My friend asks me where to buy this gloves. I said JensonUSA, hahaha..

    Thanks..this is good gloves, famous brand, with reasonable price..
