Strength:

These inexpensive gloves have features found on more expensive brands (e.g., gel pads, terrycloth on back of thumb for wiping sweat, etc.). I have been using them regularly for over a year and they have held up very well.

Weakness:

None that I've found.

There may be better gloves out there, but they're lots more expensive and these work just fine.

I worn numerous brands of cycling gloves since the early 1970s - these are the best!

Strength:

Price, lots of terry

Weakness:

Turns hands BLACK after every use. No amount of washing does any good.

Poor quality glove. Ink is hard to remove from hands after every ride.

Look elsewhere.

Strength:

Low price, Works well

Weakness:

Not a full glove

This is an inexpensive product that holds up. This is my second pair and when I wear these out, I am sure I will buy another pair. I also like the padding in the palm.

Some others have had issues with the stitching and the dye transferring to their hands. I have had none of these issues.

Strength:

Looks nice, the blue ones are very, very bright blue. I have had no problems with these gloves, and I bought them for pocket change.

Weakness:

None.

I have been using these forever. I bought them for a couple of bucks and they've outlasted one bike already. I've been using them for cross country, trials, and light freeride. Not one problem with these gloves!!!

Strength:

Cheap. Fit nicely.

Weakness:

Tend to bunch up and leave dye on your hands.

These gloves start out feeling really nice but about 20 min. into your ride the gel pads in the pads become more of a liability than a help when the pads bunch up and start to chafe. These are better than nothing but there are better gloves out there.

Strength:

Good grip, quality feel

Weakness:

padding in areas

I picked these up because they were $10 off. I tried on a couple other pairs of gloves, but the Bells seemed to have the best feel to them. They have a good quality feel and the material adapts to your hands nicely. My only gripe is the lack of padding on the heel of the palm. That's usually where I take my hits when I fall.

Strength:

Gel pads on the palms really absorb shock without loosing grip. Comfy neoprene shell with clever sweatband material inside the glove on the back side of the hand, and on the outside of the glove at the base of the thumb. Makes it easy to wipe sweat off of your forehead.

Weakness:

Stitching at the ends of the half fingers fell apart after 20 miles. A little needle and thread fixed that.

When they become dirty and smelly, throw em away and get another pair. They are cheap and they work. Just make sure you know someone that can sew.

Strength:

Comfortable and durable. I have dragged these gloves through nasty skank mud, rain and snow and theve lasted almost two years. The terry section on the thumb is great for wiping sweat and cleaning off your lips.

Weakness:

Schoolbus Yellow... thats all they had.

The last pair of gloves I had lasted 10 years (before I discovered how much fun it is to play in the woods) before the EPA confiscated them. I have these for 2 years and they are beginning to wear. Definitly a good deal.

Strength:

Decent padding in the palms of the glove, looks great, matched my bike and helmet. Nice terry cloth area for the snot and sweat wiping times on the trails.

Weakness:

The threads started to unravel in about two weeks. The synthetic leather gel palm is shredding. Stitching is coming apart. Turns your hands black after you use them for a while and take them off.

Don't buy this glove unless you want to end up buying another pair in about a month or so. Mine have shredded and turn my hand black after about a hours worth of riding. I daily commute and off-road on the weekends. I would have bought the gary fisher or fox gloves, but they costed more. So beware....you get what you pay for.
