Rated 3 out of 5 by JohnnyD An average quality gloves for summer period
On the image of this gloves you can not see mesh, but all top surface of this gloves is mesh, so they are only for warm weather. I was going to use them in autumn, but as it occured finders get cold very fast. Don't know what the purpose of gloves with fingers covered in warm weather.
After couple of rider internal material started peeling off, all my grips covered with small white pieces of gloves internal material.

Rated 4 out of 5 by tntoumpas The ideal gloves even for the hot summer period!!
Generally, I think that the gloves are great, has a very good ventilation and in any case will not feel fluid your hands. I choose the blue-cyan one and it is stylish since they "fits" with my bike color.
Be in mind to check anyway the size from size chart because normally i wear the medium size and in this model? maybe the form is a little bit smaller than the normal.
P.S: this model is not for downhill!!! only for XC, ALL MOUNTAIN.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Great gloves, great feel, great price. i previously owned the 661 comp gloves, but after a solid year of use ive finally decided to upgrade. The 858's are awesome and are priced amazingly. double layer palm (as with the comp) has saved my hands many times, and the integrated direct injection knuckle armour is second to none. only real con i can find is that the material on the top of the hand is like a breathable mesh kinda thing, which makes it reeeally thin in between the armour stuff and cold at night. i haven't had a crash where ive impacted the top of the hand but if i did it would surely rip...
As usual, got an "S" on the size chart, so i ordered an "M" and it fits perfectly. very happy with this purchase.

Отличные перчатки для теплой погоды,великолепная вентиляция.Гонял в -20 в них,но от мороза отклеился небольшой кусочек защитной вставки,приклеил обратно,жду лета.Защита вполне хорошая,достаточно жесткая.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Nice for a Summer ride
This is just a first impression after one ride.
Great looks; comfortable (but no padding on the palm); only suited for Summer, since they're mostly made out of mesh; level of protection more adequate for AM (would not advise for DH).
As always with MTB gloves, got an M on the size chart; ordered an L; fits perfectly!
Now off to buy something else for the colder days :(
