Bottom Line:   
these gloves seem like they have the durability especially in the finger tips and are made of a pretty lite kevlar material so your hands dont get too hot. the palm seems like it will wear through eventually but what do you expect gloves dont last forever. i wouldnt buy these gloes again though because i think the strap is very uncomfortable compared to other gloves ive had. if you try em on and think they are comfy i say go for it but thats just one opinion

Strengths:    The padding was good*. its a pretty good glove for the weather down here. its protected me from a good few landings on my hands. it didnt wear too much. looks good

Weaknesses:    *The gel padding only lasted about a month. it wore out especially around the upper palm area where i needed it most. It also needs a lot and i mean a lot more terrycloth cause when i swaet i need to wipe it off quickly. so i ens up buying some wrist bands from fox .

Bottom Line:   
These gloves are awsome but need better padding,and more terrycloth on them. recommended for these hardcore bmxers and people who want good gloves for a cheap price.

Strengths:    the padding is great, comfy, built to last

Weaknesses:    strap sux, very uncomfortable

Bottom Line:   
these are sweet gloves. they have lasted 2 years of my abuse, and still held up strong. i was sad when i lost them. the padding seems to permanently compress after a while, and its not gel like the label says. if you stick em in the fire, they melt ;)

Strengths:    Good Grip/padding/protection from tree branches-Warm in Cold temps

Weaknesses:    easily worn down/rips easily

Bottom Line:   
I don't think Oddesey tested the gloves after they manufactured them because I've used these gloves for about three weeks so far and they've already started to wear down along the center of the palm and also have rips at two of the fingertips..These gloves work awsome except for the crappy construction...For $30 I should have bought some Fox gloves.

8sp: Problem with the 4 round shift pin on a new IG outter chain ring

I pieced together new rings for my xt crank (m737) w/ a new chain (Sram 890). Rings are harder to come by. My 22 & 32 shift great (XTR 8 spd shifters). My chainline is correct. Found a 42 IG chain ring at a local shop and they said it would work. It all bolts up the same and the width specs are ... Read More »

Dropping Granny and Outter Ring, What Ring To Get?
