    Comments about Shimano Explorer Long Gloves:

    A little snug. Once on, they are comfortable. Some padding. Grip is a little sticky with leather-like material. I have a few road rides with them and generally like them.

      Comments about Shimano Explorer Long Gloves:

      I like theses gloves because it wicks your hand sweat quickly, seems almost dry when taken off after a 3 or 4 hour mtn bike ride. Plus my hands are not numb because of the padded areas on the lower part of the gloves. It has a thinner material and I don't know if it will hold up on a hard crash...but overall a very nice gloves esp for the summer.

        Comments about Shimano Explorer Long Gloves:

        Purchased on sale and am very pleased with the fit and the quality. Wore them first time yesterday and cycled about 30 miles in them. I like the material, I like the look, I found them to be very comfortable. It was "coolish" for the first part of the ride, and these were great. As it warmed up, I slipped into a pair of fingerless gloves.

          Best Uses

          • Mountain Biking

          Comments about Shimano Explorer Long Gloves:

          I was looking to replace a set of gloves I've worn for over 5 years. Took a chance with these since they have pads on the lower part of the palms and some padding on the upper part of the palms where the fingers meet. The fit on the hands are really nice. They're just slightly longer, but most gloves are on my hand. The index finger grip doesn't seem to be "sticky" like other gloves. Hopefully, my index fingers won't slide of my brake levers when I need them most. These gloves, like most other high end Shimano components, are pretty good quality.

            Comments about Shimano Explorer Long Gloves:

            Used during spring rides in Central Pennsylvania where the weather can be cool and cold during the same ride. These full fingered gloves took the chill off my fingers while maintaining touch sensitivity. Dried quickly. I feel as though these gloves were a very good purchase for me.
