Generally, we disagree with the maxim ‘less is more’, but not where gloves are concerned. 661 Rajis aside, there are few riding gloves available with less material and features than the Troy Lee XCs, which can be a good thing for cross-country riding. The plain synthetic leather palm has minimal padding and fingertip grippers, and the back is made from plain nylon mesh.
The only real stand-out detail is the heat-welded Troy Lee Designs patch across the knuckles. Simple but stylish and great for those long summer rides.
