On-one gloves down to a tenner
Meh. Gloves is gloves is gloves.
Got to disagree. Crap gloves are a pain. Uncomfortable, padding in the wrong place, glove backs crushing knuckles, no use in rain/wind/cold
Its a pain to find new gloves and then the next season the manufacturer has changed the design. I was lucky enough to find some NOS 2009 Spesh BG comp gloves so I got a few pairs as I love them, but the more recent designs are not as good.Posted 5 years agothisisnotaspoonMember
I bought the 3 gloves and overshoes for £25 bundle.
On the plus side I’ve had PX winter gloves before and the matrial is toasty as long as you keep it dry, in the wet it’s better than nothing, but it’s not waterproof.
On the downside they’re cheep, the seams are all lumpy and sewn together inside rather than flat. And there’s no padding.
And the size guide is pish, I was between medium and large, the large i’ve got is on the small side, so be generous with the masurement and then round up.Posted 5 years agowoody2000Subscriber
Hmm, I’ve got a pair of the wind block ones and they seem very well made, if a little on the small side (got a medium and they’re a little tight, hoping they’ll loosen up a bit over time). Think I must have long thumbs as I can feel the seam at the end of the thumb, fingers all feel fine though.
Which ones did you get timnwild?Posted 5 years agowoody2000SubscriberbrantSubscriber
Ed Oxley review of “Ribbed Protector” glove.Posted 5 years ago
Rode with the trailhead gloves on Sunday night – not that cold a night. Really are great gloves. Very pleased with them. Ulna nerve pads in just the right place and they stay there.
Then last night I went out with the ribbed protector gloves. They are a tighter fit than the trail heads. Im hoping they stretch just a smidge. The windproofing works very well – wasnt a very cold night, about 5degs, but I took a fast fire road descent to see how good they were and couldnt feel the wind on my knuckles at all. The ulna pads are definitely in an odd place – not quite as natural as the trailhead gloves. So 9/10 for the trailheads (would like to see just slightly more substantial finger side panel fabric) and 7/10 for the ribbed protectors for the odd pads and the sizing coming up a bit small (and with the XL ones I got Ive go nowhere to go as there are any XXL)Posted 5 years agoJamieMember
I picked up some of the Windblock ones for a tenner as well. They seem quite decent for the price. Not used them yet, and to be honest, I only bought them as lost one of my new Aldi winter gloves. Had to go for a Large, as they sized a) small and b) different to the PX size charts.
I also ordered some of the £6.99 winter gloves, but they were probably worth about that and sizing was not only small, I needed an XL when size chart said S, but felt like it differed from glove to glove.Posted 5 years ago
