Tighter fit than most
I take a small size in gloves and the small sized Descente Free Ride was good for finger length, but a little too tight around the hand circumference.
I'm breaking (stretching) them in. After a couple of rides, where they were initially a little tight, they are starting to fit better. However, this is putting strain on some of the sewn seams.
Sizing of the Descente Free Ride is definately smaller than 6-6-1 gloves, which fit my shorter fingers / broader hands perfectly in the 'small' size.
The Descente Free Ride seems to be well made, with good reinforcing and light mesh between the fingers for breathability.
Recommended if you have slimmer hands.
Sizing is small
I normally wear a medium because smalls are usually just a bit too tight so I ordered this glove in a medium. The glove was so small I couldn't wear them. Smaller than most of my small sized motocross gloves. I will be returning to get a set of size large. That being said, these gloves were very comfortable with the padding in all the right places and I was enjoying them before my hands started locking up. Can't wait to use a pair that fits.
Good first impression!
Very sturdy feeling glove! Also very snug at first, but that's welcome with the lack of a wrist-fastener. Unusually, the knuckle "armor" is in the right place, even with my long freak-hands! Got these from CL and they arrived only two days after my order conf arrived! NICE!
