Well made and unrestrictive

The Monitor 1.0 gloves from Lizard Skins are all about delivering superb feel and connection to the bike.

Their minimal, bare-bones build makes them comfortable on the trail, and the articulated fingers don't restrict your movement when it comes to negotiating the controls of your bike.

The quality of construction is pretty good and they're still in one piece after months of abuse – although some of the decorative detailing has peeled away and the silicone finger print has long since departed.

These are minor grievances though, and the gloves are still structurally sound, which is surprising considering their featherweight nature and the large amount of mesh material present, which helps prevent excess heat build-up.

With their seamless design and touchscreen-compatible index fingers, the Monitors are great gloves that are very up to date.
