Taking them out is not easy after a ride.
i ordered a small size according to the sizing information but the glove i received was too small, i wanted to exchange the product but the process is very cumbersome. in order to exchange the customer should send it by post-this is pathetic when we are paying extra 100 bucks for shipping then a pick- up should be arranged from decathalon's side .The gloves were packed in a way that if you have to try the size then the tags will have to be removed, then you cant return the product, this is ridiculous.
Then on the subject of quality-the quality is good but the wrist area is not properly covered and this causes discomfort
good quality and good grip
wrist is not covered
Thank you, for taking the time to review our product. The size chart on the web page of the product is missing. It will be available on the website this week. Apologies for the inconvenience caused due to this. The glove 500 is a mid range glove just above the Glove 300 and below glove 520. The glove 520 comes with the wrist velcro strap.

I agree with you regarding the return process. We are working with our logistics partners towards making the flow easy for our customers. I will give your feedback to the logistics team as well.

Good quality, excellent product.
within 3 days of usage the glove looks worn out, pathetic material from BTWIN.
nothing to like
quality is worse
Thank you for taking the time to give us your review. Apologies for the discomforts you had to face due to our product. The glove 500 can be used for over 2 years without the material of the glove wearing out. This is for recommended cycling usage only. Please let me know from which store you have purchased. I will get in touch with you over mail where you can send me some images of the used glove. I can contact the store and look for a solution.

Bought two pairs, different sizes in black. Entirely different designs. One had white piping (looks awful tbh) the other plain black as pictured). Not happy and not for the first time.
Not as pictured.
These are great summer gloves , suitable for even longer distance cycles .
Good grip , they wash and dry quickly . Of course
I've now found the right gloves for me. Okay, they might not be for everyone having read the previous reviews but what I like about these gloves are the snug fit. Yes, you may have to try on various sizes in store to get the right fit. I had to go two sizes up.
These gloves fit close to the hand without pinching. The padding in my opinion is just right. I have good contact with my handlebars wearing them. I wore them for a forty mile plus bike ride and found them to be ideal, correct fit and no site spots. For the price, what is there not to like...
Very comfy gloves when they are on, but a little difficult to get off.
Very comfy gloves
ordered large due to my current gloves that fit fine being that size & what arrived is labelled large but is meant for a much smaller large hand than mine as it just wont fit.
then we get onto the subject of padding, yes there is some but not much & its only in a couple of selected locations
in my opinion they are way over priced & undersized.
Seems decent Materials
Not enough padding - sizing seems rather small
I agree with you that our gloves sizing is too small. This has been fed back to the product manager and this will be modified in the following season.
Padding is not thick on this model as in some cases padding which is too thick can cause numbness on longer rides and reduce breathability.
We do sell a more padded version if needed: http://www.decathlon.co.uk/520-cycling-gloves-black-id_8327105.html
