    most of my riding I do without gloves but longer rides my hands get a bit sore.

    looking for some lightweight (cheapish) gloves for the road

    My go-to for the summer are a ~5 year old red pair of https://www.planetx.co.uk/products/carnac-kronus-aero-tt-mitts , so comfy on my tapeless Primavera carbon bars.

    i use galibier track mitts, can’t see the exact model on the website. They’ve lasted well, are comfortable and not massively expensive. Would buy mitts from them again. Sizing is fairly consistent, xl in these, xl in normal gloves.

    Just checked my red pair and they have “s/m” on the label, I’d say I have medium sized hands (~20cm wrist to end of middle finger, ~9cm across knuckles).

    No size guide is rubbish and design may have changed since I bought mine, impossible to say if you would need L or XL.

    Gloves are one of those things I think it’s always worth just going to your LBS and trying on to find the pair that’s right for you… no number of reviews or recommendations will make up for ones that fit just right.

    I have these Galbier mitts which have been great

    If you want to go nuts, the Loffi Quick Mitts have been the nicest  fingerless gloves I’ve had – bought them for the gimmick, actually really comfy, and the smiley face makes kids days when you wave at them!

    I wear a featherweight pair of Endura gloves. I’d like to not have to wear gloves, I don’t need any padding. But palmar psoriasis means my hands are not pretty and the cracked skin needs protection. Recommended. Wore them this morning. I have mitts too, but like the full gloves.
