For a mountain biker just starting out, choosing the right gear can be tricky. We can simplify this process by finding out what type of riding you do and matching the right gear to the right people. In this case, we are deciding whether full-finger vs half finger mountain bike gloves will be better for you. 

Generally speaking, a mountain bike rider will wear full-finger gloves rather than half finger gloves. Fingerless gloves are more popular with road cyclists, but there is nothing really stopping you from wearing fingerless gloves on a mountain bike ride! We will discuss in-depth the advantages and disadvantages of both further on. 

As a quick definition, the full finger refers to the gloves that cover the whole length of your finger. Fingerless gloves, also known as half or short finger gloves, cover right up to beneath your knuckles, leaving the top part of your fingers bare. 

Advantages of Full Finger gloves 

Long Finger MTB Gloves

1. Greater Protection 

Full finger gloves have the advantage of greater protection as they cover a bit more skin. So if you do come off or have an altercation with a low-hanging branch, your fingers will be much better protected.  

In a few safety-conscious bike parks around the world, full-finger gloves are listed as essential items to ride in their park. 

2. Greater Warmth 

Full finger gloves also leave the skin less exposed to chilly air temperatures. During the cooler months, having full-finger gloves is a no-brainer. No one likes having frostbite on their fingers- it makes it pretty hard to brake!

Winter gloves are generally waterproof and windproof are lined to keep your hands nice and toasty for those cooler rides. See this post for the top winter mountain biking gloves.  

On the other hand, you can also get quite thin and well-ventilated full-finger gloves for summer riding if you prefer.  

Advantages of Half Finger gloves 

The half-finger glove is popular in summer road cycling for a number of reasons, listed below.  

1. Greater Ventilation 

Fingerless gloves become a bit more popular in the summer months. Air can get in the finger holes allowing for better airflow and stop your hands from getting sweaty.  

In saying this, the lining in full-finger gloves absorbs any sweat, so you won’t be getting slippery hands either way! 

2. Greater ‘feel of the bars’ 

Some riders prefer the fingerless gloves as they can ‘feel the handlebars’ much better. Supposedly this makes you a bit more responsive and connected with the bike. 

Personally, I prefer the vibrations being damped by the glove, but if you are a rider who likes the feel of the bars, then fingerless gloves may be for you. 

3. Often then cheaper option to get more padding 

If all you are after is a bit of cushioning on the palms, then fingerless gloves are the cheaper option. They are also often quite a bit more padded than full-finger gloves. This is due to fingerless gloves being aimed at road cyclists, and road cyclists spend hours riding with their hands in one position. This commonly causes the nerves in hand and wrist to be compressed, causing hand numbness. Having more padding reduces the pressure on the hand, reducing the chance of getting hand numbness. 

See here for the best gloves to reduce hand numbness. 

Touch Screen capability 

These days, you are able to fully operate your phone while wearing full-finger gloves. (This is as long as you do purchase gloves that have touch screen capabilities!). Gone are the days where you needed to stop and take off your gloves to take a photo or respond to a text. Even checking maps is a breeze with full-finger gloves. 

Hence there is no advantage to either type of glove in terms of being able to use your phone while out on a ride.  

Which Gloves are right for you? 

If you ride gnarly downhill or high-speed tracks, you will probably want a full-finger glove for a bit more protection. Gloves are also very weather dependant. If you ride in the cold and wet, a full-finger ‘winter’ glove probably isn’t a bad option, and have a summer pair for the warmer weather. 

See here for a full list of winter gloves and summer gloves. 

If you want more padding, sometimes you can find a very good deal on half-finger gloves that provide more padding than a full-finger glove. But I would only advise this for those riders, not tackling difficult descents or rocky terrain.  

What else to look for in gloves? 

There are three main things to look for in a pair of MTB gloves; padding, fit and material. 

Do I Need Gloves for Mountain Biking

Gel padding can increase the comfort of your ride by reducing the vibrations felt while out riding. If you get a bit of numbness in your hands, having gel pads can significantly reduce the pressure on your hands that causes the numbness.  

The fit is entirely up to the individual. Finger length makes a big difference when purchasing full finger gloves, as long slender fingers will have a completely different fit to short stocky fingers. Obviously, the size of the hand itself also makes a bit of difference to the fit of the glove. 

The material makes a large difference to the durability of the glove. Avoid the cheaper, unbranded gloves as the materials – in particular the Velcro closure – tend to wear out or stretch. The material also varies on breathability, warmth and waterproofing. A synthetic leather palm is well wearing and absorbent material which makes for a long lasting, comfortable glove.

Obviously, the final decision is full finger vs half finger mountain bike gloves!

Final Thoughts 

While fingerless gloves are pretty uncommon in the mountain bike world due to the lack of protection, they still are a viable option for some, especially for those who tend to prefer having a bit more padding on the palms.  

A full-finger glove will keep your hands a bit more protected from abrasions, as well as keeping your hands warmer. If you are a bit concerned that your hands might get a bit too warm, see this post on the top summer MTB gloves.

For the majority of us, having greater protection supersedes any other factor. Especially since you can get comfortable, breathable full-finger gloves that you can even use your phone with!

How to Avoid Sore Hands from Mountain Biking


Numb hands? Tingly fingers? Sore wrists? Here's the why, and how on preventing it

Many riders suffer from sore hands and wrists as a result of cycling, and sometimes it can be so painful that it even puts you off the saddle. Well, we just can’t have that!

There are three contact points between your body and your bike: hands, feet and bums. It’s important to be aware, and take care of each of these three points so that you don’t suffer discomfort and can work on your overall riding performance.

Mountain biking is all about off-road fun. Whether it’s aggressive trail shredding, technical obstacles, fast and flowy tracks, or all of the above.

When you’re riding over rough and uneven terrain, the shock is absorbed through your forks and your arms. So it’s important to ensure the shock that travels through your body, is conducted in the safest way possible. Otherwise, constant pressure on your hands and wrists can lead to painful and uncomfortable sensations such as tingling, numbness and even weakness in the hand movement.

Before we look at possible solutions to these problems, let’s look at what the causes are…

If you do have a diagnosed condition with your hands, wrists or fingers then please consult with a healthcare professional.

The Ulnar and Median Nerves

There is a complex network of muscle, tissue, tendons and bones just within the hand alone. The Ulnar and the Median nerves are the key focus in terms of cycling, they’re the two you’re most likely to strain on the bike, causing pain.

The Ulnar nerve runs through the wrist and down the outer side of the hand. Ulnar nerve problems for cyclists even have a name: Handlebar Palsy. This is when there is excessive compression or hyper-extension of the Ulnar nerve, which mostly affects the side of your hand, your ring finger and your pinkie. This can result in numbness of the fingers, and a weak sensation in your hand overall.

You may have heard of Carpel tunnel Syndrome. It’s when there is excessive compression or hyper-extension of the Median nerve. This nerve is responsible for the feelings of the thumb, index and middle finger where similar pain and numbness can be felt to that of the Ulnar nerve.

For those who “deathgrip” their way down a trail, you’re more susceptible to Median nerve damage because a lot of weight is distributed to the inside of your hand. Resting your index finger on the brake lever can help relieve some of this pressure, and give you a little more control in emergency braking situations.

There are a few things you can do to help prevent the compressions and hyper-extension of these nerves in your hands. They’re all quite simple and you can do them yourself by making minor adjustments to your set-up, and do some stretches and strength exercises.

Riding Position

Many wrist and hand problems stem from your riding position and weight distribution on the bike. Here’s how to check your riding position to ensure your wrists and hands are safe…

  • Stand your bike against a wall, or ask a friend to help you, and climb onto your bike.
  • Adjust the saddle to a comfortable riding height, and sit down with your feet flat on level pedals.
  • Grips the bars as you usually would when you ride

At this point, you want to make sure your arms are as straight as possible, with all your bones aligned through your wrist and hand.

If you find your wrists are bent in an unnatural position, then your body weight is all on the wrists which can cause compressions in the Ulnar and Median nerves.

To overcome this, try relaxing your shoulders back, and slightly bend the elbows as this will reduce the pressure on your hands.

Weight placement also depends on your saddle position. Try tilting your saddle backwards a little to reduce the forward pressure of your body on the bars.

Cockpit Set-up

An incorrect cockpit set-up is another common cause of hand pain. In the same position on the bike as before, with your hands on the bars, ask yourself… Are your brake levers tilted too far forward, or back? Is your dropper post remote just a little out of reach?

Minor adjustments to your levers and remotes can help prevent any awkward movements for your hands when you ride. For mountain bikers, gear shifters are commonly fixed in a more downward position as the rider usually stands up, or rides in a crouching position.

Grips and Gloves

There are a variety of grips on the market that offer assistance to these aches and pains in the hands.  We’ve not tested all of these personally, but here are some examples of grips designed to help ease the pain:

Ergon GP1 – Grips like these aim to spread out the pressure we put on our hands through a wider surface area.

ODI Ruffian – These grips have the traditional shape of a bike grip, but made from a super soft compound which acts as an anti-fatigue material to keep your hands light for movement, even when death-gripping!

Most gloves are available with a varying degree of padding and protection, and like the grips, it’s down to riders preference for what works best for you. Sometimes trial and error is the only way forward.

Stretch and Exercise

In addition to making those minor adjustments to your bike set-up and riding position, it’s a good idea to get into the habit of regular exercise to help build strength in your wrists – though do this gradually, a three hour ride when you’ve been sticking to twenty minutes thus far is going to shock your body!

Stretching before and after a ride is a good habit to get into, too – it helps increase blood flow, and decreases the risk of damaging tendons and ligaments.

It’s important to take care of your hands and wrists when riding. Be mindful of your positioning on the bike, and how your bike is set up otherwise you could cause damage to your nerves which cause uncomfortable pain and numbness in your hands.

If you experience prolonged discomfort, it’s always best to seek out professional healthcare advice.

Ever Heard of Finger Mountain Biking?

The 5010 turns obstacles into features. Its nimble, poppy feel makes even the most mundane rides feel like they’re loaded with features to hop, skip and jump over. It’s the kind of bike that makes new trails feel as familiar as the back of your hand.

27.5 is the fun-sized wheel size. Smaller wheels provide an ideal balance between toughness and weight saving making them the most fleet-footed (or quick fingered) whether launching logs or weaving through stumps. With its quick and agile character, the 5010 has become a go-to plaything for progressive riders the world over and the only contender on any backyard trails.

It’s a bike that goes harder than its vital stats may suggest. A 140mm-travel fork is paired with 130mm at the rear, the lower-link VPP™ configuration of which leaves you feeling there’s a lot more travel at hand. And you can choose how out of hand you want to get, as this pocket rocket fits all sizes and types of rear shocks.

It’s no handful either. The relatively slack head angle makes it predictable to steer, the relatively low BB height turns like it’s on tracks and the short chainstays make this plaything easy to pick up and throw around.

No matter how much of a big kid you are the bike grows with you. We’ve tailored the geometry so frame size is matched to size specific chainstay lengths and super-low standover heights make it feel (almost) like that BMX you had as a kid. Okay, perhaps that’s a bit nostalgic, but the 5010’s certainly a perfect gateway to the highs only proper mountain biking can offer.

The 5010’s balance and poise can turn any rider from cautious neophyte into a fully fledged flyer. The legendary Santa Cruz fit, finish and quality construction make this pocket rocket tougher than a Tonka toy. Fun and games are guaranteed, and the frame, linkages and optional Reserve wheels come with a lifetime warranty.

So don’t be afraid, roll up your sleeves and go get creative
