Strengths:    make your hands look like a ti fighter pilot

Weaknesses:    seams at fingertips are annoying, velcro strap isn't the best, build quality could be higher

Bottom Line:   
I bought these after using a pair of Giro's DND glove for a few month. The DNDs fits great and had great dexterity with no seams at the index or middle fingertips. I ordered these online and have to say I was a little disappointed when they showed up. I was hoping that they would fit at least as well as the DND. I find the velcro strap on the LX to be cumbersome compared to the elastic on the DND. It is awkward to close and catches on long sleeves. The seams at the fingertips are what most bothers me - I love the DNDs for their dexterity, but these fall short. They have a nice palm pad, not many long fingered gloves with padding these days. I think this pad would get more use in a fall than it does when you're riding as it isn't where your hands touch the handlebars - at least for me using normal road bars. There is a bulge on one of my fingers where the stitching isn't perfect, it's only on one side and it is obnoxious. Leather is classy I guess, but compared to the material used on the DNDs it feels bunchy. It's a nice looking glove but I will probably keep using my DND's and just save these for black tie bike events.
