I have a pretty satisfying experience with these and I'm really glad they have those large holes on the knuckles for ventilation, but I think they could've been improved on some grounds:
1) The connectivity strips came off in a month of usage. I need to used my phone at times but since ¾ of the strips have worn out in have problems with that. To conserve whatever is left of the strips on my right hand glove, I have to avoid all jobs which require dexterity (opening my bicycle lock, adjusting my helmet etc.)
2) The palms could've done with aerogel padding because as thick as these gloves are, the four sections of cloth just cannot beat real padding.
My conclusion: the gloves are more than worth every rupee I spent, but if you're buying these, just be careful not to wear the connectivity strips off.
As title, great quality gloves at a decent price. My only problem with them is the index and middle finger "grip" bits of pattern or whatever they are meant to be are more a hindrance than a help. They have started to detach from the glove after several rides and if you forget they are there and try to rub your face etc they can be pretty sharp! Other than that they are comfortable and kept me gripping my handle bars when needed!
This is my third pair. The previous two pairs (with "Btwin" print) were excellent but this new pair (with print "rockrider" ) is very poor. I think the manufacturer has changed. And the new stock is of very poor quality.
This new pair doesn't fit properly, some fingers are short while some are long. The stitching and overall build quality of the gloves is bad if I compare it to the old stocks.
I found something sticky like glue on the inside of one of the glove.
The various tags like washing guidelines and sizing etc are located inside the gloves right in the center of the palm which makes it difficult to grip and irritates the palm while riding.
The older stock of these gloves were excellent, but I wouldn't buy these new pairs again.
I would like to see gloves from the older manufacturer.
Thank you for taking the time to give us a detailed feedback on the Gloves. Apologies for the bad experiences you have had with the gloves. We will forward your feedback to the product engineers to consider for their future feedback. For next year we have a new design for all the mountain gloves. If its possible please send us some images of the gloves and there the glove is getting worn out. Please let us know the how many time a week you have used the glove and the kind of usage.
I remain available if you have any questions. Looking forward to your reply.
Good quality, stretchable, good grip but a little bit tight at knuckle, not feeling comfort after minutes of biking. I purchased L, but XL will be better as there was no XL.!
Great help top lads and ladies
very good product this is my second pair of gloves but this time i faced a very strange thing. second pair is damaged within 3 days of purchase from Velcro. i visited store and the person on desk is saying this gloves is only for cycle rides if you use it on bike ride it will damage. i don't understand how does it matters, i use my gloves on bike or a cycle or on walking.
Comfortable and well ventilated.. fits nicely after first wash
Although i dont want to share 5 star ratings as this is a very good product, same product i had bought twice and my ratings might increase the rates... which definitely one customer wont wish to happen.. very gud quality
I used Btwin Cycling Freeride-Gloves-7 Gloves 8200462 for more then 2.5 years. It lasted very long despite using it everyday for 20 KM ride. The product was made in Vietnam and was very comfortable. This product is made in India and unfortunately not crafted to the level that previous similar product that bought. Finishing and ventilation should be improved.
