Perform your best.
You want to be able raise a glass and toast to a race well-done after you cross the finish line, so don't forget about protecting your hands while you're riding. Scott's Perform SF Gloves are constructed to keep your hands happy without slowing you down.
The top hand, a polyester blend, has plenty of stretch to allow for freedom of movement, and the synthetic material breathes well by wicking moisture away from your skin to keep you cool. The chassis is a blend of micro suede and Lycra — a combination that offers more stretch with secure grip.
Scott includes compression-molded padding to help protect sensitive nerves on your palms from road vibrations, and the TPR hook-and-loop closures allow you to fine-tune the fit of these gloves until they're just right. Scott reinforced the palms of the gloves to make them tough enough to handle being pulled off quickly — so you won't lose any time heading over to the après.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: XL
These are about as lightweight as you can get, and the finger loops are fantastic. The padding on the heel is not much to talk about, and they fit true to size. I like these a lot, they are a good pair of no nonsense road gloves. I like the terry thumbs too.
Gloves with Pull Tabs
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
- Fit: True to size
My belief is that bike gloves are pretty much bike gloves as long as they are comfortable, but there is one TINY detail that will always make me look twice: pull tabs BETWEEN the fingers. Very few gloves out there offer this simple feature but if you've ever had a 15 minute tug-of-war with a pair of wet gloves you know where this is headed. Those pull tabs get your gloves off quick and easy no matter what. The pair of gloves I just purchased were a Christmas gift to my training pal, he couldn't find gloves to replace the worn out pair with pull tabs that I'd given him a couple years ago. I found the gloves he wanted here. Cheers to Scott for making the gloves, cheers to you for stocking them!! Thanks.
