- length ride
The Ascent gloves are great for the rider who likes minimal padding They are comfortable in different grip positions and I've used them for road and gravel. I tend to get numb hands with heavily padded gloves. I normally wear medium gloves but sized up to a large with the Ascent glove. I'll be getting another pair!
I, for one, do not like thick padding - either on gloves or in my shorts. Knowing nothing of Pactimo, I ordered a pair of these gloves. The first thing I noticed was how thin they were. They I noticed the "plastic" bands on the palms. These bands of plastic give an incredible grip! The thin palms give an excellent road feel. Finally, even on long (for me) rides in hot humid weather, they stay DRY! LOVE 'EM! (Also, I cannot believe how quickly they arrived!)
Very comfortable on any length ride. I sized up, normally a medium but they were a bit tight for me. Large is perfect
The gloves fit great, very nice to use while riding when hot.
