Strengths:    Very nice looking,light.

Weaknesses:    Extremely thin pads, not for DH or FR use,Dont count them for protection.

Bottom Line:   
I bought them for protection and one week after in a small fall they got pierced and my hand also. Buy them but its better to hang the on the wall than to use them. I was very disapointed

Strengths:    very comfortable glove, ventilated holes on top of fingers keep hands cool. Carbon fiber over knucles is very padded and can take a beating

Weaknesses:    single layer palm material which is perforated rips and stretches due to rubber padding at back of heel of palm

Bottom Line:   
decent product, gloves lasted a hard 6 months of riding including crashes. next years gloves look better. over all not bad for only 45 bucks.

Apparently these were addressed in the macaskills?? I have the impact highs but would like to try something a little less burly without giving up too ... Read More »

Localized swelling at impact site (hip) appeared week later...

First off, I do have an appointment with a physician in a week (earliest available), but wondered if someone could proffer an explanation for my issue in the meantime. I crashed hard in a race two weeks ago, smashing down on my hip and shoulder. Sat stunned for a minute, then got up and rode a lap ... Read More »

Screech on Impact

I'm riding a mostly stock stock 2012 Epic Expert Evo R with a 2013 carbon SL wheelset. When I get some air, not big air, just the kind of jumps you'll find on an XC trail, upon landing there is a screeching sound sometimes. I doubt that it would be from the fork. It doesn't really sound like the b ... Read More »

The reason I ask is that I feel too high up on the pedal and feel that it makes me top heavy and uneasy. I used to ride in a ... Read More »
