I've had Fox and LG gloves in the past. Mavic is making some of the highest quality cycling products right now and these gloves are no exception, even though they are pretty simple. I'm way down with white gloves, it may be psychological but it feels like they keep my hands cooler on hot days. Definitely size up as they run small and there is no velcro enclosure.

I was a little worried when I first put them on the soles were making a pretty loud squeaking noise whenever I walked on a wood floor, after about a day the squeak wore off and they were fine. I'm a size 11 and they are true to their size with some extra room in the toe which I like. I got the brown velvet which look lighter in person than the photo depicts. I agree they do look a little clowney and I've dubbed them my Ronald McDonalds.

I have this mounted on my Tallboy LTC. When I look down at it from my seat, all I can think is how bomber and durable it looks. It functions even better than it looks, with a solid Clang! every time I shift. It's a good feeling not having to second guess or "manually"push your chain from one ring to the next.

The levers are so comfortable I usually ride with my fingers hovering on them. They are easy to adjust if you need them to be closer or further away from the grips. I accidentally scratched the silver part when I flipped my bike over to take the wheel off. These brakes are on my Santa Cruz Tallboy LTC, and I'm going to buy another set to put on the 29er hardtail I am building.
