Dress up: Endura Full Monty gloves

Simple and subtle design for a very reasonable price

As the colder weather is coming and I had to order something warmer, I went for the full-finger gloves from a UK company called Endura. The company is a solid performer for budget riders, but they don’t do it cheap. Far from it. In my last shipment there were quite a bit of Endura gear from overshoes to skullcaps to gloves, socks and even underwear, but the first thing we’re going to take a look at is their MTB full-finger gloves – the Full Monty.

They have some very nice details in them, the gripped palm and brake fingers, the mesh covered finger areas for ventilation and the construction seems very solid for a pair of gloves that cost 25 euros. Sure, they might wear a bit faster than those really good ones you really like, but I’d might rather get four pairs of these than a really good 100 euro pair.

They make them in sizes that should fit pretty much everyone.

The gloves come in sizes from XS to XXL, which is good for a lot of small and large handed people such as myself, who has a lot of problems finding anything to put on in this world, especially from sales. The only gripe I have about the Full Monty is that my thumb seems to be a tiny bit shorter than the alpha male hand model they had in mind when they designed these, but otherwise it’s a very solid and sturdy feeling.

Our verdict: ★★★★½

Seriously, for 25 euros these gloves are damn good.
