Best Cycling Gloves to Buy

When you want to get the right cycling gloves, you have two main choices to choose from.  The half finger gloves which are usually the best choice for summer months and they keep your hands cooler as well as being able to use devices such as phones etc. and the Mitts which are full finger and can keep you warmer in winter months. Both types come with padding so if you have an accident they will protect you from road scrapes. Cycling gloves come with different types of protection for different uses. For example you may want extra hand padding for off road cycling. Whereas if you are road riding you my need palm protection. Below we go into more detail as to the different types of gloves available and the best uses for each.  We at Lads Manor have also given you a selection of our top cycling gloves to help you decide what is right for you. We work with some of the top suppliers of cycling gloves in the UK so please take your time to choose the best for yourself. 


What to consider when buying Cycling Gloves.


As mentioned above there are two types, the half finger version and the full mitts for both summer and winter use.


Protection is key when considering a purchase as cycling gloves come with various forms of protection. You do need to consider what type of riding you are planning to do with them. i.e. for mountain biking you may need a more fuller protection glove due to the terrain you will be riding over, whereas of road riding you may need palm protection only. It is important to choose wisely.


It is important your gloves are comfortable and fit properly.  If you have been riding all day then there is nothing worse that ill fitting gloves as they will rub.  The padding in the right areas are key to ensuring your hands have not been impacted by a long days riding. The size of the glove is also important as they range from Small to Extra Large and can vary depending on the manufacturer. So bear this in mind when choosing.


Cycling gloves are relatively inexpensive in the scheme of things.  You can get a pair of gloves for as little as £6 and can go up to £50 depending on the quality of the materials used.  At the higher price point you would expect to get a good quality leather set which is well made and designed to last longer than the cheaper version.
