    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.

    does hub engagement impact clutch derailleur effectiveness?

    I've currently got a 1x9 drivetrain. SRAM X.9 short cage, MRP lopes chain guide, Hope Pro 2 EVO rear hub. It appears to me the derailleur mainly controls the tension on the bottom section of chain. The top section seems to be fairly isolated from the derailleur. Chain play up top is dictated b ...

    Danny Macaskill Freeride Shoes vs impact lows

    Anyone use both? I had the old freerides but didn't like them much due to the lack of stiffness in sole, and exposed toe box and flimsy construction. Apparently these were addressed in the macaskills?? I have the impact highs but would like to try something a little less burly without giving up too ... Read More »

    Localized swelling at impact site (hip) appeared week later...

    First off, I do have an appointment with a physician in a week (earliest available), but wondered if someone could proffer an explanation for my issue in the meantime. I crashed hard in a race two weeks ago, smashing down on my hip and shoulder. Sat stunned for a minute, then got up and rode a lap ... Read More »

    Screech on Impact

    I'm riding a mostly stock stock 2012 Epic Expert Evo R with a 2013 carbon SL wheelset. When I get some air, not big air, just the kind of jumps you'll find on an XC trail, upon landing there is a screeching sound sometimes. I doubt that it would be from the fork. It doesn't really sound like the b ... Read More »

    Shoes like Impact 510 but with thinner soles?

    Hi, I have a pair of Impact 510 shoes. I love the traction and stiff feel. Was wondering if anyone makes a similar shoe, traction wise, but with a smaller/thinner sole? The reason I ask is that I feel too high up on the pedal and feel that it makes me top heavy and uneasy. I used to ride in a ... Read More »
