Trials gloves

Although not intended for trialling these gloves are very comfortable and give a good grip on the bars. Hardwearing also.

This is not a "for sale" post. I have no connection with the link at all. I just happened to come across the gloves at a company that supplies and maintains equipment at roadworks / quarries etc.

I know at least one rider that likes them and has used them in the past, however for him it's usually a cheap fallback glove for wet weather or if his preferred glove gives out during an event.  

Havent tried them myself so can't give any opinion on them.

I wear muddy fox mountain biking gloves. £12 from sports direct. Again, I have no association with sports direct.

+3 for Mechanix, though I don't have experience of anything else. But at about £5 a pair, what's not to like?

Those other gloves look like gardening gloves. I used them when crewing on fast skiff dinghies. I think I was paying €1 per pair and they were far better than the £25 sailing gloves. Brilliant grip when hauling on a skinny bit of spinnaker sheet. I considered them for trialling but thought the grip may be too good. What if I want to slide my hand on the twistgrip?

Where do you manage to pick them up for a fiver? Most I've seen are closer to the 20 quid mark.

661 SIxsixOne gloves for mtb - you can get great deals on them on ebay (last time paid less than 10).

They have Many glove styles - all work great with trials/mtb
