    Default Full-finger Glove for CX Racing

    I'm looking for a full-fingered glove with some grip on the fingers for cx racing: I was slipping all over my levers on Sunday with my summer road gloves. Light-to-medium weight as it doesn't get too cold in Catalunya. Any suggestions?

    Fox Digit. They have been on sale for $9.99 for the past few months on chainlove.com

    I've bought 3 pairs and just rotate through them until I crash hard enough to tear them.

    I hear you...one of my pet peeves is a good lightweight glove you can actually grip the brake levers with. Troy Lee Designs does a good job. Their 'Air' model is cheap, breathes well and is sticky on the fingertips. Highly recommended (as long as it's not too cold!).

    ...or you can go to a store like Home Depot and get a pair of work gloves with extra grip like Ironclad

    could be a matter of getting decent bar wrap. lizard skin makes sticky compound bar wrap that will make any glove work well for hanging on in those muddy conditions, Lizardstore.

    I have some SixSixOne gloves that I love, 401's I think they're called. Very light, slip on cuff, perforated synthetic leather palm with no padding and no stitching on the palm. I use 'em MTBing.

    A bit of athletic tape on the brake levers works for my mtn bike. Ugly but cheap and easy to replace.
    All the fingertip grippy stuff tends to wear off long before my gloves are shredded.
    Cheers,

    On a MTB you should have your levers set up so you can hook a finger around it, then you don't need any grippy stuff on the lever or your gloves.

    hardware store. mechanics gloves with grippy stuff on the fingers. leather palms.

    1 pair will last a season and they're 1/3 the price of cycling gloves.

    Has nothing to do with bar it's wet fingers on slippery levers when trying to brake through a sea of 180-degree turns in a downpour

    Castelli makes a pair of CX-specific gloves called the Cw 6.0. Super-sticky palms in the muck, and they've been putting up with a couple months of abuse on my end without complaint. I dig - but not that warm for anything extended.

    Ironclad tac-ops. Thin, close-fiting, reinforced in the right places, and as black as my heart. Seems like I got them for under $20 a couple years ago, looks like the price has gone up a couple bucks.

    Should we talk about socks while we're at it too?

    We can do better than this.

    If you were in the US, I'd say try wide receiver (American football/gridiron) gloves; they have a coating that stays tacky when wet.

    Like Heisenberg, I've been happy with these: Castelli Cw 6.0 Cross Glove from Realcyclist.com

    I got them for free though. Not sure they are the best $30 option out there.

    I have been riding with the Fox Digit for while, nice gloves.

    I also have a pair of Ironclad Ranch Work gloves I have never used for riding, but man do they hold up to the tree clearing, rock moving I do all the time. They have a pair of Cold Weather gloves. I was thinking of trying those out...

    giro remedy gloves with lizard skins tape. they make 3 thicknesses....the mid-thick is like a fizik dual. get the thin one. the thickest one only if you have monster hands.

    Troy Lee Designs XC gloves are my go-to long finger gloves. They fit me so well I wear them in the summer sometime. If they made them in a short finger version, it's all I would wear.
