Where this glove falls down is in the pads. They are hard and very thick. You'd think that would help but the are not super soft and after riding on them for a while, they become downright painful in the palm area. Despite trying to shift my hands so they aren't resting on the pads, which defeats the purpose of the pads in the first place, I was unable to find a way to stop the pad from constantly rubbing on the meaty area of my thumb. The net result was that I developed blisters on both hands in this spot after a 100K ride. Suffice to say, I won't use these again for anything longer than a 1 hour ride.
I gave the gloves 2 stars for the quality of the build, but the execution is terrible. I would recommend the Louis Garneau gloves, they are more comfortable on the hands but tend to have tighter fingers.
I've worn a pair of these through 1800 miles of cycling over the past 8 months and washed them about a dozen times. Bit by bit they just fall apart. The lettering on the side was the first to go. Followed by the branding on the strap. Then the strap itself just peeled away from the velcro. All that cosmetic style that looks good on a rack is just cheap glitter to get your attention. When it starts to fall apart it just makes the gloves look cheap and nasty.
As for the gel padding, I'm with others on this issue. I think it makes your ride worse. It's not soft or flexible and is basically like riding with a block of rubber stuck under your thumb.
They are lightweight and cool and the wipe is useful, but ignore the bling, look at other brands.
They only last about a year - then the gel starts to die. This is common with gel gloves.
THE GOOD: Extremely efficient padding, great wicking, aesthetically pleasing.
THE BAD: Not very well made. Right out of the box I was appalled at the quality of the stitching. After two weeks' hard riding it has only gotten worse. They're basically just a pair of thin gloves with a sheet of padding sewn onto the palms. This sheet is already starting to peel around the edges.
THE UGLY: Them! Not only does this quick wearing make me seriously question their useful life - the wear is very noticeable. For a cyclotourist, you don't need any help looking all worn out!
When they bite the dust, I will be looking for an alternative. Even if I have to pay a little more for it.
