My preference is for minimal or no padding, these are great. Compared to my last set of black leather gloves these are a plus, no black dye staining my hands after a long hot ride.

Have yet to ride with them in the rain so time will tell, but I would expect if there was going to be an issue I would have seen it due to sweat.
Very nice fit, no bunching in the palm.

The only complaint if you can call it that is the lack of decent pull tabs to remove them. The leather nubs under the pinky and middle finger are hardly worth the time spent designing this feature.

I'll still be ordering another set so I have backups for when these are ready for replacement.

If you have a set of sidi's with the Millenium 3 sole get a set of these now and check your shoes regularly. I waited until it was obvious to order. by the time I replaced mine I had to carve the old ones apart with a knife to get to the screw with a set of pliers as the phillips head of the screw was damaged beyond use.

Being replaceable they will keep your shoes usefull for a long time.

This little guy is just right if you usually opt to not use a saddle bag. For most rides my jersey pockets are enough, occasionally I find myself venturing out for a solo century and this little guy is just right to offload my multitool, money and repair kit to open up a pocket for the extra food and a pouch or 2 of drink mix to get me home.

About the size of a trifold wallet.

Very slick single strap attachment to the saddle rails.

Picked up one in black with blue stitching. Looks great, fit is slim which is fine for most activities. Fits great over a jersey for cool morning pre-race warm-up or post cool down.

Its a little tight over a t-shirt if you plan on using it for casual wear, possibly go up a size or just ditch the t-shirt.

Looks like this may become my go to coupled with a light baselayer for rides from 35degrees and up. very impressed. Initially it looks to light but the wind proofing on the chest is perfect with a baselayer, easy to unzipp and dump a little heat if needed.

Favorite thing to eat on the bike after banana's. Powerbars are weird, either its to cold and they are like trying to eat frozen silly putty or its hot and they are like a semi solid gel that still requires chewing. And I've never met a clif bar that didnt require 2 watter bottles and a refil to wash down. Stinger waffles seem to almost melt in my mouth and dont leave me feeling like I have cotton mouth. Also feel like they work quicker, had a low glycogen moment between races this year that was quickly solved with a banana and honey waffle.

Just stick with honey. The other flavors dont seem to work so well, at least for me.

Love it for cold rides. By cold I mean anything under 45. Over 45 and I'm stopping after a while to pull it off because its simply to much for that temp. Keeps the top of my head and my ears warm, fits nice and tight to my head and only requires loosening my helmet about 2-3 clicks on the adjuster wheel.

Great upgrade over cheapish entery level shoe's without breaking the bank. Defenitly feel stiffer than cheap shoes, fit is nice, comfortable. The sidi retention system is nice very adjustable and simple. strap's buckles and heel pad are replacable all nice features when you put down alot of miles. Remember contact points are worth not beaing cheap, get good stuff for your feet.

Hated using my regular drive around town shades to ride. always seemed like the top rim acted like a gutter funneling sweat right into my eyes. I actually started using tinted safetly glasses from work until I was lucky enough to win a set of these a couple seasons ago. Typically use the platinum lense for most riding and tuck the clear into my bag for commutes. Started using the Rose lenses recently and they are awesome one overcast days so they are my new go to is overcast to slightly rainy. Just replaced the ear pieces with new one's supplied directly from smith and need to pick up a new platinum lens after an opps tossing my mini pump into my helmet on top of them and made a small scratch in theo worst possible place. Have had no issues that were not my fault. Highly recomended.

Love the teflon cleats over the grip cleats that come with look's now. The rubber on the grip cleats wear off quickly if you walk on them much and then your left with what you have hear something relatively slippery, but you dont have the teflon whre the cleat is engaged. the teflon seems to really help the cleat float as intended compared to my last set of grips which honestly felt like they had no float.

picked up a set to replace my classics which have searved me well for 1000's of miles. First clip in was great, very positive engagement. Ridden a few times since picking them up and havent pulled out of them once in a hard effort climbing or sprinting. The increased contact pad is nice, time will tell if it really makes a difference.

Basically built off a SRAM Red crank. Power measured where its made, doesnt do left right power but physiologically most people should be balanced relatively well and with a little creativity you can test left right without spending a ton more.

More versatility in wheel choice than a powertap. And unless your afraid of tools it can be swapped between bikes quickly if needed.

Made the upgrade to Tubular's this year and have been very happy, I ran GP4000's for the first half of the season and needed to replace the rear after wearing it out. Bought a pair of sprinters and couldn't be happier. I currently have more miles on the sprinter and the rear looks like its still ready for more.

Put it in your pocket and stop worrying about if you brought enough CO2 cartridges to get home. I bought mine after an unfortunate incident halfway up a climb fumbling around with my less than useful CO2 inflater; 2 CO2's later and finally borrowing a pump and I knew I needed a hand pump.

Fits in your pocket fine or pick up the sweet lezyne bottle cage which doubles as a pump cradle and leave it on your bike. The flex hose is an excellent feature helping both connecting to your valve stem but saving it from damage.
