a Cross Country Rider
Date Reviewed: April 18, 2009
Strengths: Good padding, warm for cooler weather, good latex grip on trigger finger and along sides of palm
Weaknesses: First purchase: the "x" shaped webbing in the palm (red mesh)ripped within 2 hours of riding XC. LBS didn't have a replacement so they refunded my $. Decided to give them a 2nd chance (due to strengths)and purchased online. rode 35 minutes of XC trail and no problem. Took them out the next day...20 minutes into the XC trail the red mesh tore AGAIN in the palm. Totally frustrated at the fact that these gloves tore TWICE in the SAME place. Will not purchase these gloves again and WOULD NOT recommend anyone purchase these in the future. Unless you ride "no handed" then you should be ok.
With the red mesh inner palm tearing within 20 miles of XC use TWICE I would not recommend !!
