These gloves are exactly what you would expect from Norwegian brand Sweet Protection - simple, practical design, well made and a good fit. With a striking red, white and black design there is no losing these gloves either!

Review: Sweet Protection Women’s MTB Kit

The slip-on design allows unrestricted movement around the wrists; the lightweight stretchy fabric hugs the back of the hand really well and is breathable so your hands don’t overheat; the fabric is a super close weave too so is pretty resilient to scuffs and knocks.

The artificial suede on the palms helps with grip and there is silicone print on the index fingers for extra braking grip, which works better than I thought it would! The fit on the fingers is nice and slim so there is no annoying bunching. My hands are quite skinny so I did find that they got a bit baggy on the palms but that’s a common problem with gloves for me!

Stylish Mountain Biking Clothing for Women

There’s no padding or extra reinforced areas on these gloves – personally I really like this as it keeps the gloves from being big and bulky and you get a better feel from the grip.

In terms of finish and quality, these Sweet Protection gloves are right up there. I’ve worn them on a few rides now and they still look like new.


- Great quality.

- Comfortable to wear.


- Baggy palms after a couple of rides – but if you don’t have skinny hands like mine this probably not a problem!
