Icon Twenty-Niner Men's Riding Gloves Oh wee little Icon riding gloves, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways...

Don't worry, I'm not about to whip out the ol' poetry on you, but I do have a soft spot for these gloves. They are much like my old, beaten-down riding standby pair. Leather on the palms, stretchy fabric on the fingers, and short wrists that tighten just behind the heel of the hand.

Icon's Twenty-Niner gloves are inspired by motocross, meaning they have that sharp, aggressive look that is oh-so Icon. Big gaping vents are positioned to maximize the force of the air up the backs of your hands. Riding position architecture prevents any pulling at the seams or stress on your tender tendons.

The simplicity of the materials and the stumpy structure are really what endear these mitts to me. Goatskin leather on the palm is perfect for abrasion resistance and sturdy wear. These are not for folks who are hitting the mud, since their short stature won't allow the wrists to overlap your jacket sleeves. You also don't get any fun carbon knuckle protection.

Great for cruising and street riding, these do fall off quickly in appeal when your riding becomes more akin to motocross. The Twenty-Niner might be styled after MX gear, but they are not MX gear. However, they only cost around $29 and come in four snappy colors.
