Alpinestars Gravity Gloves

As the name suggests the Gravity glove is a downhill-orientated glove from the Alpinestars line up. Unlike many other heavy-duty mountain bike gloves however, these feel surprisingly lightweight and thin and you could be forgiven for thinking they are not up to the task. In fact they have been well thought out and constructed to ensure that they are very…

Dakine Covert Glove

The Covert is a fairly minimalist glove, simple yet effective. They boast moisture wicking 4-way stretch fabric on the back of the hand and a Clarino synthetic suede palm. A slip on design they do away with the need for a Velcro closure system, which gives them a very clean profile. There are neoprene flex panels on the knuckles and…

ION Products Wisp Glove

Having had a good browse through the ION clothing range at Eurobike last year we were keen to see how the range performed when out on the trails. The Wisp glove is their contribution to adorn the female paw, and I must say it is an impressive first offering. The fit is excellent; comfortable, lightweight, flexible and with consideration given…

iXS Sports Division BC-X1.2

Whilst the name might be a bit of a mouthful the BC-X1.2 is anything but cumbersome. It’s a lightweight freeride glove designed to be comfortable and breathable for those summer days in the saddle. It is pre-shaped for the best fit and features gel padding on the heel of the palm. There is a Velcro closure on the top of…

O’Neal have collaborated with legendary Spanish dirt rider Andreu Lacondeguy to design these gloves, and they’re certainly an eye-catching creation. The palm is a single layer of Clarino synthetic leather, as is popular in MTB gloves these days due to it’s strength, durability, performance and the fact it’s machine washable.

O’Neal Revolution Glove

I hate to admit it, I’m a sucker for a pair of gloves, and I dread to think how many pairs I’ve been through over the years. There’s a lot to like about the Revolution Glove from O’Neal. The pre-curved fit is absolutely spot on, not too tight and restrictive, and not too loose. Ever since trying slip-on cuff less…
