Fox Attack gloves review£30.00

A firm favourite

BikeRadar score3.5/5

The Fox Attack is a great lightweight glove with zero palm padding that’s a great option for riders into minimalism and uninterrupted control feedback.

Using a slip-on cuff ensures there’s little to it. The Spandura mesh back does a good job of keeping things cool, and the minimal nose wipe on the thumb does what it should.

After three months of near daily use in all conditions, they’re looking decidedly ‘mid white’ so we’d plum for the black or grey. On the upside, there’s none of the finger-end seams bursting that our longer-fingered testers experience thanks to the great cut.

Guy started filling his brain with cycle stats and steaming up bike shop windows back in 1980. He worked the other side of those windows from '89 while getting a degree in “describing broken things covered in mud" (archaeology). Dug historical holes in the ground through the early '90s, then became a pro bike tester in '97. Guy has ridden thousands of bikes and even more components the world over since then and can remember them all in vivid, haunting detail. Can't remember where the car keys are, though.
