Same here, Fingerless when warm otherwise I go full finger. I use Foxx mtb gloves for the full finger. For the fingerless, it's an ancient pair of trek gloves basically cause its the only pair I have not lost. Really there are enough makes out there. Try them on, you will know which one is right for you.

I have Pearl Izumi Cyclone full finger gloves for the winter-they are windproof and fit really well. Pearl Izumi fingerless gloves for warmer weather.

Pearl Izumi Attack here as well. Really hot weather and I have no-name brand leather-palms and crotchet-cotton backs.

Aviner Comfy Gel gloves. $20.00 a pair, not thick and bulky and they last forever. In winter I just slip some light weight Therma-Fleece work gloves over the Aviners. Hands are cool but never sweaty.

Right now I am working with Craft gloves for both winter and summer. I don't like a lot of padding and I don't like velcro straps. The velcro tends to get hung up on arm warmers ect. when trying to take them off or put them on.

Half finger in summer. I like Spenco gloves, especially their "Rip Its". They're very easy on-easy off, great quality. One pair lasts me several years @ ~ 7,000 miles per year. I bought a couple pair of Pearl Izumi. Both pair didn't last one season. :-(

Half on the road.. Full on the trail.

Pearl Slice gloves are pretty comfortable. Got them last spring and used them all season. Still working perfectly and not a single stitch has popped or anything. I kinda wish they were all black but oh well.

I pick...

What gloves do you use, fingerless or full finger?

Which brands do you prefer?
I pick, none. I don't like the feel of gloves on my hands when riding, and yes, I've fallen enough to know that I probably should wear gloves, but can't teach an older dog newer tricks I guess.

I prefer full finger gloves for riding.

In my doing a search, it's difficult to find full finger road bike gloves that aren't for cold weather.

I'm looking for a set of light and flexible gloves that are still cool for hot summer riding.

I find MTB gloves too "protection" oriented in their construction for roading.

Any good suggestions?

So far, I'm leaning towards a pair of Slice Gloves.

Castelli Rosso Corsa. They're pricey but I had a coupon for about 25-30% off so I took a chance. They have just the right amount of padding and the loops for removing them are a slick idea. For not too cold weather I just wear a pair of Windstopper fleece gloves over them and if the weather if really cold, like 15F or colder, I use Pearl Izumi lobster mitts.

Full finger for crash protection. No padding in the palm.
(much of my riding is on dirt but I've had a few close encounters with pavement too)

Whatever fits when I try it in a local shop.

i cant stand padding. i hate losing the road feel, whatever is cheapest and thinnest works just fine for me.

It gets so friggin cold I've been wearing a 150 thinsulate Carhart leather glove over an xps type glove over a pair of those thin knitted white gloves you get at Ace. It's tight until they get broke in together. Friday it was warm enough for a single unlined glove, see link below. Eventually I get to a pair of pretty thin lambskin gloves I got at ace, very nice, but they're thin where tire cleaning/yard work wore them out after a season. Eventually fingerless in the summer. I like those knitted back ones. The gal at the lbs says they are the same ones the old guys in the wheelchairs always buy.

Adidas half gloves. Just a little padding and only where I like it. They don't cost much and have held up well.

When temps drop I put some WindStopper gloves over them.
