Our review

Great all-day gloves, but not crash-proof and lacking a snot rag
Skip to view product specifications

What we have here are traditional cross-country gloves from Troy Lee, now with a lighter, stretchy Spandex construction.


You still get the high-quality Clarino leather palm, but now the whole package is just that bit more breathable, which keeps your hands cool and helps reduce sweating and discomfort.


The thin fabric can rip easily though, and we’d like to see a terry cloth section for snotty moments. These are comfier on long all-day rides, but don’t expect the same level of protection you get from the hardier regular models.
