Strengths:    Better than no gloves

Weaknesses:    the cloth on the palm started tearing apart after just four rides.

Bottom Line:   
I would look at other gloves before getting these. I have other products from this brand that are great, just not these gloves.

Strengths:    I couldn't find any

Weaknesses:    everything, Cloth, Gell is tough.

Bottom Line:   
Used for three days before they completely fell apart. Big holes on the front and back of the thumb, and the CLOTH pad was wearing thin across the palm. Don't waste your money.

Submitted by John a Cross Country Rider from Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Date Reviewed: September 8, 2007

Strengths:    Comfortable.

Weaknesses:    Wears out extremely quickly.

Bottom Line:   
These gloves developed several small holes over the course of one season due to the soft material used for the palms. Even after one ride I noticed that bits from the palm were already wearing off!! Avoid these gloves, they are not even suitable for road riding.

I have since replaced the gloves with Perl Izumi Pittards Carbon gloves which are great because the palm is made from leather.
