Full finger gloves for summer

Postby moya » Thu Nov 07, 2013 9:49 pm

Can anyone recommend some full finger gloves that are rated for sun protection, preferably UPF 50+?

The only ones I've been able to find are the Specialized Deflect UV or the Pearl Izumi Select Gel FF glove. Unfortunately I can't find a convenient seller of the Specialized gloves, and the Pearl Izumi gloves have less than glowing reviews on Amazon.

I wear Troy Lee Design XC gloves on and off the road all year round and find them very comfortable regardless of the weather.

Try Fox Sidewinder. Not real cheap but they just won't die. Very comfortable year round. Thin palms though - no padding. Which is what I want. Much more comfortable than having a sofa cushion between my hands and the bars, even on the roadie.

Any of the lighter motocross gloves that you'll find in a motorbike shop will suit your needs - Fox and O'Neal brands especially and for a reasonable price mostly.

Wut? I thought bikini lines are the current fad?

Walk down the Fox rack, sticking a paw into each different type. Which reminds me, winter gloves are cactus...
