Riding Impressions

Breathability and comfort - this all-mountain glove was designed with these two things in mind. Featuring full-mesh-backed fingers and backhand, these gloves stay cool while riding. The thin but durable palm leather offers good grip, precise lever feel, and doesn't bunch. Both the index and middle fingers feature silicon gripper coating for increased control and grip on levers. While not offering much tree-punching protection, the Recon Gloves offer much more than a bare hand in the grip and protection department.

The one real shortcoming of these gloves is the rubber wrist closure. As seen above, it is far too short to adequately secure the glove around an average-sized wrist, which means that it sometimes comes undone while riding.

What's The Bottom Line?

A comfortable, well breathing glove without all the bulkiness and thick padding so many other gloves are guilty of. The SixSixOne Recon Gloves are simple, thin and perfect for the medium to light duty rides. Save a minor issue with the rubber wrist closure, I'm a big fan of these.
