A long day of riding can take a toll on every part of your body, especially your hands. Twisting throttles and pulling clutches can blister and bruise, especially if done without the protection of riding gloves. A good pair of gloves is the finishing touch to your riding ensemble, providing an extra layer of comfort, protection, and even style.
It doesn’t matter where you ride, gloves will always be a necessity. Going top speeds on the freeway can subject your hands to the elements, causing chaffing, numbness, and other discomforts. Meanwhile, riding through dirt, gravel, or sand with your hands exposed can subject them to some serious damage. Don’t let the lightweight and thin construction of gloves fool you – their fabric has been designed to protect hands in the event of a crash, offering a barrier between the ground and your skin. Riding gloves aren’t just good for protection, however, they also make holding onto any set of bars much easier. Clenching a pair of vibrating bars with tough grips can be very uncomfortable, so having a pair of gloves in between can make the ride more bearable, giving you the energy to go even longer.
With so many sizes, styles, and brands of gloves to choose from, you’re bound to find a pair that fits your needs. If it doesn’t fit, utilize our Fit Guarantee program to get the shipping paid for on your first exchange and take the hassle out of ordering your next pair of riding gloves.

Needed these gloves to match the rest of the kit I received as a gift. Upon first putting the glove on, I realized there was a lot of padding material stitched inside the glove. I prefer thin gloves in the palm area, so I turned the glove inside-out and carefully cut the stitching holding the pad to the glove so I could remove the padding. This DOES NOT destroy the glove as long as you are careful. Once I did that I loved the fit. Only other issue I have is I ride the my pointer finger on the levers at all times, and I can feel my right pointer finger actually gripping and pulling in the front brake sometimes! They are that grippy! Outside of that, great glove and I expect great durability per usual from Fox productsRead All Reviews

I have used them for a few small rides and they seem to be very nice. They are extremely breathable since they are thin. I have my doubts about the longevity of these gloves. My last pair was extremely thick and is still in decent condition (I have had them for 5+ years). I believe that the new gloves should be fine for another 2-3 years. I like the rubber grips on the gloves since the work extremely well.Read All Reviews
