    Strengths:    Flashy, eye-popping design that looks cool on the trail. The glove has fairly good palm padding with durable stitching. Sometimes they've even substituted for driving gloves on cold mornings gripping leather steering wheels.

    Weaknesses:    I've used these gloves for over 4 years. About a year ago the gloves developed holes on the index, middle, and ring fingers. This season new holes have appeared on the palms, right on the thumb seem. They've also developed a stench that conventional laundry machines cannot seem to conquer. But I am talking about a pair of very old gloves here!!!

    Bottom Line:   
    These gloves have lasted me a very, VERY long time! I really like the design as well as the durability and the level of comfort the palm padding offered, that is, before it deteriorated into nothingness. Seeing that they now look like something that your typical hobo would be sporting and smell even worse, I've had to retire my Beloved AXO Comp gloves. I even tried to replace them with the same model, but have found that they have been discontinued. No worries though, I found a similar offering from AXO, The AXO Ride. I purchased them yesterday from PricePoint.com (I plan on writing a review on them after a few rides); hopefully they're just as good as the COMP. I would defiantly recommend the AXO COMP gloves to anyone looking for a comfortable, unique looking, full-fingered glove. Even though mine are falling apart, you have to keep in mind that my gloves have lasted me quite awhile; they've endured when a lesser glove would have to be retired far earlier!

    Strengths:    Looks good. They were cheap when I bought them

    Weaknesses:    These are one of the WORST gloves axo ever made. Stitching seems to self destroy after only 2 rides (no crash needed) and the rest of the glove seems to do the same after a month.

    Bottom Line:   
    Maybe the worst gloves I've ever used. The reason for the time of use it that I bought 3 pairs because of the low price... what a waste of money. If you still see that crapy gloves....DONT' WASTE YOUR MONEY !!!!

    Strengths:    comfortable and reasonably priced

    Weaknesses:    stitching came undone between thumb and forefinger on second ride. did a 12 hour race a couple of weeks lated and the palm kind of self destructed. no i didnt crash! called AXO to tell them i was not happy with product and never heard back from them.

    Bottom Line:   
    I am usually easy to please and get good wear out of all my gear but this was one of the worst products that i have ever purchased. I would have been happy with a return call or some semblance of acknowledgement from the manufacturer but it seemed as though they have plenty of other people buying the gloves i guess.

    Strengths:    Good Padding.

    Weaknesses:    They ripped... after about 6 rides, where the thumb meets the wrist. The seam is coming unstitched!

    Bottom Line:   
    These gloves would have impressed me more if the seam would have stayed stitched for an entire season. But for the price I'm not to bent over it. For 20.00 Can it was a good deal. Maybe it was just a bad sew. Warm, comfy gloves, good padding.

    Strengths:    It's tough and keeps the branches from cutting up your hands.

    Weaknesses:    Just a little hot, but not too bad.

    Bottom Line:   
    Awesome full finger glove. Go with these over any half-finger gloves because if you mountain bike, believe me sooner or later you'll need the extra protection. And you can't beat the cost!
