The XC Glove is tough.

Decent but bunchy
I agree that these gloves are simple and lightweight. They are definitely good for staying cool. The padding is indeed worthless though. My biggest complaint is without a strap, these things keep bunching up my hand. A minor annoyance, but not what I'm looking for in a glove. I will be getting one that straps on tighter next time. Otherwise, it was actually a good fit--just when I start riding it bunches up.
Descente XC gloves
These are a simple, lightweight full finger glove. The mesh on the back is very thin and cool for warm weather. The palms aren't really padded, but have patches in the usual places. They work great for XC riding, not a Downhill glove.
does this have any padding? or is it labeled...
does this have any padding? or is it labeled xc but it's really a downhill glove?
