Sombrio 2013 women’s MTB kit review: Birm Queen shorts, Pedigree jersey, Oso gloves

Despite a full finger design these are really summer gloves, designed to be lightweight and breathable. They are quite short in length so if you’ve got long hands you might need to go up a size!

Having said that the snug fit and suede fabric allows you to really feel the bike’s movements through the handlebars, while the mesh keeps your hands cool.  There are some clever details: elastic and adjustable wrist closures, reinforced fingertips for durability and a terry thumb panel – a nose wiping essential!

The brake fingers have added silicone to aid grip – with a lip shaped design to boot!


– Great feel and fit
– Practical and stylish details


– Short length

Size: XS, S, M, L, XL
Colours: Blacktastic, Hazed and Confused (Pictured)
Price: £22.99
