Strengths: Bad@ss looks. Stay cool with breathable material, yet offer serious protection with real leather padded palm. Decent price for the durability. Reflective stripes help with night visibility.
Weaknesses: Padding at heel of palm is rather stiff and exacerbates my hand numbness.
Not machine washable - handwash only!
Great gloves. They are well made, show careful attention to detail, and will protect your palms if you crash unlike thinner gloves while staying cool. The flipside of this protection is the numbness i get from the padding pressing on my right-hand palm, but when i'm riding trickier trails i can accept the trade-off.
Most gloves are overpriced and so far that and the numbness i'm reducing the rating my one flaming turd.
