Strengths:    Fit, comfort, protection, build quality, material quality and feel. Everything!

Weaknesses:    None. Expensive if you pay full retail. ($60)

Bottom Line:   
The perfect gloves for my hands. I am usually a medium-large and went with a medium and they are perfect. My hands are a little on the skinny side though, so if you've got fat hands try 'em out before buying. Mine were just a little bit tight on first wear, but are now broken in (after 2 rides) and fit perfectly. Snug all around without being overly constricting or hot. The velcro closure is the best I've used, very grippy and located on the underside of the wrist. There is extra protection in all the right areas: base of the palm, all the way over to the base of the thumb, knuckles (with the best looking carbon fiber reinforcement I've seen outside of motorcycle gloves) and even the finger's knuckles are reinforced. The base material is strong as well. The Lorica on the back of the hand is strong yet soft feeling, like high quality leather, and gives the gloves an expensive feeling. The inside is lined with an extremely comfortable, soft, fabric that isn't too bad at wicking away the sweat. There was only one pressure point that caused discomfort when I first wore them. The square edge of the velcro closure barely touched my wrist, poking it. I just snipped the corner off and it's perfect.

BOTTOM LINE: I've tried about a half dozen gloves. These are the best I've used, by far.

Strengths:    Comfort, Breathability, Grip, protection.

Weaknesses:    None Yet

Bottom Line:   
The first time I used this glove was on a teched out singletrack donhill trail with some pretty big gaps on it, and they performed flawlessly. I love these gloves they were well worth the money. I have sweaty palms and the glove is so breathable that my hands were dry at the end of each run. they also have a gell pad in the palm which is really comfy through the rough stuff especially.
