I try to wear gloves as little as possible.
I like riding with no gloves but sometimes I can’t handle it when it is too humid.

Still searching for the ultimate tacky grips I used to use in BMX days

After slicing my hand open I always wear gloves.

I own gloves but hardly wear them

If you sweat, but don't like gloves rub some dirt on your hands

Gloves every ride.

I figure if I have any sort of incident, my hands will hit first.

If it’s hot or very cold.

Hitting my little finger on a slab of sandstone I was riding past at a pretty fast clip taught me to always wear gloves. It ripped clean through the glove but a slight abrasion to the skin was all I got.

It might have abraded my skin down near the bone if it hadn’t been for that glove.

Only when descending gets tricky.

Always wear gloves. Saved my hands many times.

I wear them Everytime, they have saved my palms and knuckles on several occasions and the grip is way better in the summer.

Gloves are practical especially in hot/humid climates but without gloves you just look so much cooler, right? Hahaha :p

I switch between both but ultimately wear them
most of the time. But I do like the feel of no gloves on nicely worn in grips (until it gets too schwetty).Smile

Lots of scrub brush constantly hitting hands. Always wear gloves.

Every ride no matter what.

Trail/AM/“Enduro” rider in the PNW.

Helps prevent blisters, keeps me from having to pick gravel out of my hands after a crash, and for a good solid few months of the year it’s to keep my hands from freezing/going numb.

Same as this guy. Same riding. Same place (PNW). Same reasons.

Gloves; full fingered for winter, short fingered for summer.
