Comments about LOUIS GARNEAU Louis Garneau Ergo Air Glove:

This is a solid glove. I've used a lot of gloves for both mountain and road application and I have been impressed by the comfort and the durability of the LG ergo air. My gloves have lasted for almost 2 years of heavy use -- on both road and mountain biking. Everything on my gloves is still structurally intact; however, my knuckles are starting to wear through the mesh, so I'm now looking for replacements (and am disappointed to see that these don't seem to be produced anymore).

Comments about LOUIS GARNEAU Louis Garneau Ergo Air Glove:

These are the nicest gloves I have owned. they breath extreemly well and are comfortable. they don't last as long as those ten doller performance terry gloves. At first I thought the padding would be to thin, but after some long early season rides where my hands did not go numb from my bad form as they usually would, I think it is just right. they might not last more than a thousand miles or so.

Comments about LOUIS GARNEAU Louis Garneau Ergo Air Glove:

I hung on to my beloved Pearl Izumi Gel Lites for 6 years because anything else I’ve tried (including the new Gel Lites) has been subpar. Someone I trust at Performance recommended these, and I'm happy with the result. During the first ride (50 miles), my left hand, which always goes numb every 30 minutes, hurt worse than it ever has. It went numb, then began to throb, and then burst into flames. I didn't give up on these gloves, though. I hand-washed them with Woolite and on the next ride, they were perfect. They are tight at first, but after you wash and wear them, they will be snug, not tight. For the first time ever, I ride without any pain in my left hand.

Comments about LOUIS GARNEAU Louis Garneau Ergo Air Glove:

The padding is "strategically placed" exactly where you don't need it, and the "ventilation on the palm" means there's not even leather where your hands go numb. The space-age padding foam also means that after the first climb, the bits of padding that there are are compressed to nothing.

Flimsy padding
By JoshuaVerified Reviewer from Reston, VA on 9/4/2006
Pros:
Breathable, Fits well
Cons:
Tears easily

Comments about LOUIS GARNEAU Louis Garneau Ergo Air Glove:

Padding stitching on left hand came undone after less than 100 miles of use! I'll just go back to my smelly Specialized Blobs that I've had since 1998.

Average Glove
By Mountain & Roadie from Minnesota on 7/23/2006
Pros:
Breathable
Cons:
Uncomfortable
Best Uses:
Mountain Biking

Comments about LOUIS GARNEAU Louis Garneau Ergo Air Glove:

Light glove, but tight around the thumb and not enough terry along trigger finger for wiping away sweat.

I love the padding that is strategically place for comfort and the reflective piping for evening/night use.

thumb is too tight
By KentVerified Reviewer from Ithaca, NY on 4/20/2006
Cons:
Uncomfortable
Best Uses:

Comments about LOUIS GARNEAU Louis Garneau Ergo Air Glove:

The gloves had a good fit everywhere except around the thumbs, where they cut off circulation. Size was large, which is the glove size I always wear. For reference, the circumference of my hand just above my thumb is 9.25" (235mm) with my hand open flat. Circumference of my thumb between my knuckles is 2.625 (67mm). I suppose that dimension may swell a little when working out.
