The only problem we had reviewing these excellent BC-X3.1 mountain bike gloves from IXS was choosing the colour!

Super stretchy fit and reinforced fingers with great bar feel and grip
Too many colour choices!

If more challenging mountain biking is your bag, then for summer riding you would do well to consider these long fingered offerings from Swiss-based IXS. The thin palms allow excellent feel through to the bars, while long fingers offer a little more protection, enhanced with a little rubber armour over the knuckle.

The thin and stretchy fabric means there is no need for wrist adjustment - just tug them on and you are away - and for us the fit is perfect from first wearing. On warmer days we welcome the airflow through the 'sandwich mesh structured' back and, together with the perforated synthetic suede palm, there is no danger of overheating despite their full finger coverage.

Silicon grip printed onto the fingertips and reinforced areas around the thumb and fingers finish off an excellent glove.

The only problem you might have is choosing which of the myriad colours to go for.
