For what it's worth, I rode with my new Fox Ranger gloves today and the changes they've made to the palm for 2016 make them shithouse. The stitching is now in a crap place and is annoying, and they don't stretch in the right place anymore and so they bunched up and didn't feel very secure :angry:

Dunno if it's just my hands (I don't think they're weird?) but I'd try them first and wrap your hand around a bar with them. And if they suck then consider paying more for the Troy Lees...

:withstupid:
they changed them in '14 to have a thumb towel, they also did away with the big raised logo over the knuckle... i like the new design, good fitting even over my fat wrists and wrist supports (which was a no-go with the old design)

Another vote for Troy.
Trouble free for ages, and super comfy.

Was looking at shopping at Wiggle but see they don't do the Troy ones?

Just picked up some fox rangers, so far so good. About $45 so hardly breaking the bank.
