Hi,

Can anyone recommend mitts which have no padding, but would likely hold up in a spill?

Cheers!

I have the black rapha pro team mitts. No padding as such but like a few leather bits on the palm, which would hopefully provide some protection.

Not crashed in them though so can't testify how well they'd hold up on impact.

Seconded about the Rapha pro team. Quite comfortable. I crashed on them once The thin leather pad had a scratch but hold up well. though, if you use the scratched pad with fine bar tape wrap it will ruin your bar tape so watch out.
