Full finger gloves offer additional protection to the fingers though majority of impacts occur to the palm area of the hand and therefore are protected with both a full finger and fingerless glove.

If biking is a regular activity for your child or you ride as a family, enjoying bike parks, pumps tracks and cycle trails then the comfort and control bike gloves provides when holding the handlebars will be beneficial to your child.
Gloves provide some cushioning and can help with reducing sweaty hands and providing a surface that can grip the handlebars to assist with steering control.
