    Strengths:    Comfort, protection, price, fit.

    Weaknesses:    none

    Bottom Line:   
    By far the best glove for technical mtn biking I've ever used. Washes nicely and retains shape. "leather" underside offers great protection from raspberry thorns and other prickly's and burs on the trail. Grip is excellent. Very thin padding allows for excellent feel and grip. Padding is placed only where you need it. Large terry patch for wiping sweat. Anatomically cut so it fits your wrist exceptionally well. Full finger design breathes well and doesn't get hot in the summer. Not designed for a long road ride, but for a three hour technical XC ride, its perfect. Will buy again. PI's and Axo's can't compare.

    Strengths:    Good fit, quality materials.

    Weaknesses:    Too much padding, spotty quality control.

    Bottom Line:   
    I like these gloves. Padding is a little thick over the ulnar nerve, but haven't caused me any grief yet as others have. I prefer unpadded gloves with just some reinforcements.

    Quality control seems a little lax. The gloves are sewn in China and the first pair I got weren't properly joined up between the terry cloth and the flexy fabric on the top of the hand. Changed those after a ride and the second pair were just fine. Help up well to 3 or so rides a week the last few months, anything from 10-30 miles in varied conditions.

    5.10 Impact Low Break-in

    New rider here, first post. I'm looking to pick up some shoes more suitable to trail riding than my current beat-up cross trainers. I ordered 5.10 Impact Lows, no one sells them locally here. I sized up some since I have wide feet and these don't come in anything but medium. Even with ... Read More »

    Calculating stem rise impact

    I'm trying to figure out how to calculate the impact that stem rise and length have on a handlebar position, and I'm wondering if any one can help me with ensure I have the right math. When a stem says it is 90mm, is that leg of a right angle triangle, rather than the hypotenuse? In other words, ... Read More »

    Pedals for Fiveten Impact Clipless?

    I just picked up a pair of Fiveten Impact VXI clipless shoes. The shoes are stiff for pedaling, grippy climbing up rocks, and comfortable for walking. Everything I was looking for except... My XTR Trail pedals only contact the cleats. I tried an old pair of CB Mallets and they made so much con ... Read More »
