Strength:

Lightweight, great for summer.

Weakness:

Definitely don't last as long as other thicker gloves. The sizes seem to change from year to year, at least in my experience.

For summer riding I haven't been able to find a better glove. They disappear while riding which is exactly what I want it a glove.

Strength:

Minimalist glove that provides grip and some protection for the hands. Lets a lot of air move through glove and is so light, you often forget you are wearing gloves.

Weakness:

These gloves have a life span. So far, I've found they last about a year before they start showing wear. After that, they can last another year or so but will eventually disintegrate. I extended the use of one pair by cutting the fingers off and using them as fingerless gloves when the finger seams started ripping but even then, they eventually fell apart.

I've bought a new pair of Raji gloves roughly every year for three years now. The first pair I bought were fantastic! They lasted 2 and half years before I finally threw them away.

The second pair I bought practically ripped the first couple times I used them. This was especially weird since I purposely bought them a size larger than my hand size to make putting them on and getting them off a little easier. I sewed up the broken stitching and those gloves have been going strong ever since. I figured maybe I got a bad batch since the first pair worked out so well and it looks like some others might have also gotten gloves that split at the seams judging by the reviews.

Recently, I bought my third pair. I got them a size larger again, and have had this pair about a month. So far, so good. No ripped seams and they slide right on and right off so hopefully 661 fixed whatever was wrong.

When my Raji's start to go bad, and the fingers start to come apart, I cut the fingers off and turn them into fingerless gloves. Sometimes it is nice to ride with only a little palm protection.

I do think 661 should consider double stitching these gloves to make them less likely to fall apart. They are great gloves but can understand why some people have left bad reviews. Brand new gloves shouldn't fall apart no matter how light weight and minimalist they are made to be.

Strength:

Nice and light. Fit snug on my hands.

Weakness:

Seams ripped in a few places after the 2nd ride which appears to be a common thing after reading the comments on here.

I won't be buying these gloves again. Bit of a shame really as they were the first 661 products I've purchased.

Strength:

Very comfortable to wear during summer rides.

Weakness:

Summer use only

This is the best glove for summer rides. It uses breathable materials, you can feel the breeze through your hands. Thin enough to be able to text on your cell phone, and yet strong enough to protect your hands. Not recommended for winter riding.

Strength:

Sticky to the grips; cool where they need to be; offers protection while feeling as if you have nothing on your hands; light weight; least important but still a strength - look great (I've got the brown ones).

Weakness:

Thin - but you should know that before you buy; sticky product logo coming off the digits - esp. the index; no velcro, etc. opening to easily slide them on/off

Own these gloves. Know going in these are thin basic summertime protection. I'd say they have a definite lifespan. Getting them on/off - especially when wet - can be a problem. If close to next size I'd order a size up. If your hands are tender you may still get hot spots or blisters with these gloves and you are not going to get a lot of protection if you fall and catch yourself with your hands.

No velcro strap so are'nt the easiest to put on/take off.

Great summer glove, although I use mine all year round unless its really cold. Very good fit, almost feels like your not wearing gloves. Ive been using mine since Cristmas 2006 and they don't have any rips or tears in them.

Strength:

Great looks!, grippy fingertips, breathable material, doesnt rob away palm feel.

Weakness:

palm material wears faster than the rest,

These gloves have great tactile feel on the palms, lets you know the textures of what youre touching. Breathable material keeps your hands cool and dry. Minimal padding doesnt bunch up as much as thicker gloves when you grab ur grips. Fingertip grippers do a good job of hanging on to the brake levers.

My only gripe is the palm material wears faster than the rest of the glove, starting to show signs of wear, well I guess thats what you get for better tactile feel.

Another thing I noticed is that mine doesnt have the raised rubber 661 logo and the 661 name on the index finger like some pictures ive seen. Instead mine has screen printed ones, u guys have any idea about the discrepancy????

Might try the 661 comp gloves, maybe their palm material wears better.

Strength:

Light weight, conforms perfectly to my hand, very cool in hot weather.

Weakness:

None so far.

First gloves that I have used that do not have any padding in the palm. I run Oury grips so they have plenty of cushion and I find that no padding in the palm is actualy more comfortable, at least with these grips. Really really liking these gloves. Only been using them for a couple of months but they are holding up well so far. Will definitely buy these again.
