Not quite! These gloves are great for hard gravel rides or XC adventures. With excellent bar feel, just enough protection without making my hands too hot, and thankfully they feel as good as they look, I'm over the moon about them. Thanks!
These gloves are 90% awesome. Fit is great, with a little extra length in the fingers for wrapping around the bars. Palms haven’t developed any stretch or bagginess yet. My only minor gripe is that the bow tie graphics are some kind of plastic adhesion to the base material. While they look excellent, and have survived numerous washes, they are rather abrasive. If you are constantly wiping snot or sweat off your face the bow ties are going to limit your glove contact point to the thumb terry cloth pad.
I thought they’d be bulky or that the full fingers would feel weird, but they are perfect. Light on padding, just the right thickness, grip, and warmth. Spring riding in Wisconsin is pretty crisp, so these have become an every-ride staple, which is staying a lot since I generally ride without gloves all summer.
