Need really small gloves !

Postby Welsh Dragon » Mon Aug 27, 2012 7:47 pm

I am a very petite female (a lot of my posts start off like this !!) and can't find a pair of summer gloves (short) to fit me-any ideas please?! Got some winter motocross ones but summer is around the corner and I don't want to go another summer without them.

PI small don't fit and no-one does really small female ones that I know of.

Any thoughts ??

I can't help sorry - I must have Amazonian hands compared to you :D

I use Roeckl gloves and they fit better than any I've tried before. My fingers are thin compared to my hand - apparently!! I know they do xs but i ignored them on the rack :) Roeckl are a nice product but aren't cheap so a tough experiment. I did find www.bikeglovestore.com which may have a bigger range and better measurements.

Good luck on your search.

Oops - forgot to add, I think I use the Irving glove. Unisex and probably in a small. If you check their website, they have women's size 6-8 but also kids 4-6. I wonder if there is a cross over there that might be useful? I can see you in the pirate club ones :P

My partner has very small hands as well & she found the XS BG Specialized gloves a tight fit.

Otherwise kids sizes should go down to a suitable size in summer gloves. Just not sure where to source them from ?

Found these>>> http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Mode ... elID=76298 <<< on Chain Reaction, but as for the fit.....well that's impossible with online stores.

Hi,
My daughter brought me over a pair of pearl Izumi gloves from the states yesterday, and in other brands I wear a large, but there large was very small.

So if you find a small in pearl, I think they would be very small.

Might be worth checking out.

Bicyclinghub.com has women's gloves and some nice jerseys.
I've ordered for myself and my wife in the past, and have found the pricing to be keen, service very good and shipping charges reasonable for a US site.

It's been so hard as no shops stock kids gloves. Thanks for the suggestion.

Located in 2 places in NSW?? and they do fantastic Kids gloves that my young kids can not destroy and they seem to be completly functional and user friendly

Don't know if you found some Welsh Dragon, but I like Specialized and Roeckl women's gloves. I also tried some Netti women's yesterday and the small was too small. So they are around.

Ironically was going to report back today......my local bike shop's sister store had scott contessa gloves in very small size. Used them for the first time today and loved them. Never used gloves before-felt a lot happier.

Thanks so much to everyone :-)

Might be worth buying another pair now you've found ones to fit. I do that as I know the dog will end up chewing one sooner or later!!

I'll lend you a dog. He seems to find my farourites all the time!! Luckily he doesn't swallow them now, only sleeps with them in his mouth so they need washing - eeeew dog spit!!

Good luck with finding the go-fast gloves :)
