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!).
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.
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.
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...
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.
