  • Ergo Air technology wicks away palm moisture and helps stabilize hand temperature
  • Lightweight foam padding protects against road vibrations and jolts

    Slightly smaller cut then others and without a strap they can be hard to remove when damp.

      Comments about Louis Garneau Challenger Gloves:

      Light weight with NO Velcro closure to snare any other garments, these are my go to glove for long and short rides. The fabric thumbs give just enough absorption for brow sweat or snot rockets. Great ventilation through the palm. Lighter padding than some, I find it sufficient even over rough roads.

          Comments about Louis Garneau Challenger Gloves:

          I normally take a size L in all glove purchases, so that is what I ordered. These gloves are so tight that I have difficulty getting them off in spite of the tabs on 2 of the fingers. I decided to keep them and hope that they will stretch so that I will have an easier time getting them on and off.

          Really like these gloves, but mind the sizing

          About Me Avid Cyclist

          Pros

          • Lightweight
          • Relatively Minimal Paddin

          Cons

            Best Uses

            • Road Biking

            Comments about Louis Garneau Challenger Gloves:

            I really like these gloves. They're lightweight, and they have little padding, which I like. I especially like that they don't have a velcro strap. They may be a bit harder to take off at the end of the ride, but they feel better throughout the ride in my opinion. And they're silly-cheap.

            My only issue is the sizing, and this isn't really a criticism as much as it is just something to be aware of. My hands are 9", which puts me right in the middle of a M (8-9) and a L (9-10). I bought a medium because I like gloves snug. But these are just a little bit too snug for me. They actually cause me some discomfort and numbness because they pull too hard on the skin where my fingers come together. At the price of these, I'm going to address this by buying a larger size.

              Comments about Louis Garneau Challenger Gloves:

              I miss the adjustable velcro wrist strap that was on the other Louis Garneau gloves I've had over the last eight or nine years. That's not a crippling drawback, however, and it possibly explains the slightly lower price of these vis the company's other models.

                I like this glove for the minimal padding but just enough for me . Very comfortable. Not bulky with too much padding which can be uncomfortable.
