OK these are summer gloves so buy for next summer or if you're lucky enough to be riding somewhere hot this winter

IMHO the best available hot weather (thin and ventilated) gloves for mountain biking, and probably some other sports too where you need a light glove that gives grip on your equipment (ooh err) without affecting feel much. Judging by reviews others agree - extremely comfortable but not very durable - been waiting for these to come back on sale at nearly half RRP. If you know your size and you know you like them you might want to buy several pairs as you might not even get one season's use out of them.

At time of posting, all colours and all sizes in stock.
2009 stock clearance.

Note voting either way.
Perhaps you could explain something .. if Im spending the day riding XC in Afan or even the North Downs, why would I buy these instead of something with more palm protection.
After a day of riding (4hrs + ) I certainly feel the vibration in my hands even with decent padded gloves (Endura), so I wonder what sort of XC these Raji thin gloves are really for?

Not everyone likes palm-protection though. Personally I like my gloves to be wafer thin, and grips as skinny as possible.

I'm voting cold however as I bought a pair for £15 about 18 months ago and they lasted 3 weeks before splitting

Also, unless you've had a pair of the exact same model before you don't know if they'll fit properly

No protection and fall to bits the first time you touch something with them on.
OKish for racing maybe, or if you want something to stop the grips getting sweaty, or maximum feel through the bars, but not great for days out.

come on, they aren't that bad! if you scrabble about on rocks a lot perhaps you need something tougher but for my light xc riding they last a year ish.

I'll put up with this (at this price) because they are the only gloves i really forget i'm wearing.

white is a good choice for safety in low light (shows hand signals).
