100 Ridecamp glove 2017


Riders who prefer lightweight, form-fitting gloves will like the Ridecamp design from 100%. Made specifically for mountain bike, Ridecamp gloves are constructed with boxed fingers, so they won't bind, and with stretch fabric throughout, the fit is snug without creating tension. The top is a durable nylon/Spandex, while the palm is made from perforated "Clarino" synthetic leather that is printed with silicon gripping elements. A generous terry-cloth panel on the thumbs makes for an absorbent wipe, while the tips of the thumbs and forefingers are embroidered with smart-phone-sensitive thread to facilitate trail-side data management. The cuffs are secured by discreet hook-and-loop tabs, and those who wear sport-function or smart watches will appreciate that the upper part of the wrist is indented to clear the watch face. Five sizes are available, from small through XX-large and color options are black, Neon yellow, orange and tie-dye blue for men, and black and neon yellow for women. MSRP is $29.50 USD.

Pinkbike's Take:
bigquotesI liked 100%'s Ridecamp gloves from the outset. I prefer to wear gloves without padded palms that fit snugly, and they checked both boxes. The palms were thick enough to stand up to long punishing downhills and, beyond some spots of missing silicone gripper, show little wear and tear after a couple of months of muddy winter riding. I wear medium sized gloves and my fingers are average length. What I like most about the Ridecamp gloves is that there are no hot-spots, binding between fingers or the thumbs, and no places where I felt seams rubbing against my hands. The boxed fingers had plenty of stretch for one or two-finger braking and there was ample dexterity to adjust helmet buckles and for minor repairs. Good gloves at a reasonable price. - RC

 I still have this bad habit. This goes back to the early 90's riding cantilever brakes on full rigid bikes. My first suspension fork was a 50mm travel Marzocchi xc 300 air fork. V-brakes were a huge upgrade when introduced, and disk brakes were sent from "God". We are all spoiled now even with SRAM. Boy, this makes me feel old.

 @bonkywonky: Mechanix gloves work great for cold days.

 @Deville64, We have to agree with @freestyIAM, it is tough to make gloves that fit everyone, and trying them one / reviews are primes.

 @Davidsym: The Brisker works even better! www.ride100percent.com/brisker

 @Davidsym: The cheapest basic ones work great for all days for me. They're also cheaper, and last roughly three times as long for me.

 Hook and loop closure... Uh, velcro?
  • + 25
 Velcro is a brand. This stuff looks a bit different (Fox uses this stuff too).
  • + 0
 This glove's closure seems identical to The Original Mechanix
  • + 0
 @spinko: Yes velcro is a brand but its a brand like kleenex in which every similar product is called kleenex because they became so popular the brand itself became common place so its now the norm to call the product by that particular brand.
  • + 3
 @CosmoJKMJ: yes like how I always call a zipper a YKK regardless of the brand

 @JeremyFRWright, RC is referring to the design of the loop, Velcro being only the "grippy" part.

 100% always has a nice selection of gloves for $10 at the Sea Otter - I got 2 pairs and they're still going strong. Not this model. Cooler ones.

 $10 from home depot lasts longer than any gloves I've bought from within the industry:

 Loved my 100% gloves but I found them to Bag out a little quick. Because the glove palm is all just one piece of material the gloves stretch quickly.

I remember having to run gloveless in whistler last summer due to my gloves getting so bagged towards the end of the day that the material was trying to fold over between my hand and the handlebar.

If you like a glove like this I found the Fox Ranger to be a great lightweight glove. They don't bag out as much But in a couple pairs I have owned the stitching popped near the thumb area. luckily the stitching popped close to the end of the life of the glove.

 Hi @2bigwheels, thanks for the previous feedback. Could you please send us an email to info@ride100percent.com with your feedback? We would love to hear more about your issue, it sounds you may have been using a glove too big or you sit between two sizes? Someone will get back to you as soon as possible.

 I can't take my eyes off the size of that master cylinder. Almost as if they are compensating for something.... #irunhopetechE4brakesandilovethatthemastercylinderdoesn'tneedtobethesizeofaburritotogetthejobdone Wink

 Specialized teamed up with SRAM to design the Guide aeries master cylinder. There is a hidden compartment for either burrito or helmet storage.

 Great, another glove like all the rest. What about those of us who remember gloves with a contoured palm structure? Every f*cking glove is like this one now. A single flat piece of material for the palm side.

Nothing special, just another duplicate product.

 100% brisker glove is my all year round glove. So warm and tough but easily worn through the winter. All for 20 odd quid. Superb.

 Top notch! Good to hear you like them, and thanks for the love.

 @ride100percent: as I have said before they are useless under around 4 degrees and are splashproof at best
  • + 1
 @Conanangus: they are a 20 quid glove, I'm out 4 X a week in all conditions and these are the best glove I've used for the money. They are warmer than standard gloves and are still thin so I can still have a good feel through the bars. Works for me, can't say my hands have fallen off with frost bite yet.

 @ride100percent: I'd love to try some of your gloves. Can you make me a 3-4XL?

 Does anyone know of any gloves that don't have horizontal seams along the fingernail? Don't know why but it can really bother me with some gloves.

 "Lots of features in a comfortable glove for minimalist riders."
Huge yellow logo doesn't really scream minimalism to me.
  • + 1
 Not minimalist in color. Minimalist as in those that don't like wearing a whole lot. It's a thin glove
  • + 1
 @samimerilohi, Yes, @treymotleyDH nailed it, minimalist in the feel, just what you need to ride. The "huge" could come handy on a crash as well.

 How are they compared to Ridefit or iTrack?
  • + 1
 They offer an overall closer fit to your hands, the sizing has been refined as well. Overall they are just superior in matter of fit.
