Strengths:    great knckle protection. Good fit.

Weaknesses:    Silicon tips came off quick as expected.

Bottom Line:   
love these gloves, would try them again even. most reviews seem to dwell on their durability but i have ridden them for two summers and they are still good to go. as for the price, if you like going fast and don't like broken hands, then shell out 20 dollars more and get a good pair of gloves. they saved my nuckles 3 or 4 times last summer alone.

Strengths:    My hands did not sweat on a warm day.

Weaknesses:    Kevlar to protect the finger joints is pathetic.

Bottom Line:   
Heading to Moab for my maiden voyage in May. Our guide recommended some protective gear for the journey. Bought these and took them on a test ride. By the end of the ride, half of my finger joints were bleeding. They have Kevlar protection on the outside that totally irritates your fingers inside the glove. Tried to get a response from the company, and it was also pathetic. Plan to throw them in the trash can. Bought a pair of Rockgardn Carbon and love them. Only recommend 661 products to your enemies.

Date Reviewed: December 10, 2007

Strengths:    Look nice.

Weaknesses:    Expensive. Rubbish stitching. Bad Fit. Rubber peeled off. Thin material.

Bottom Line:   
Had these gloves just over a year, they weren't as comfy as my last gloves, fit badly, cost a fortune, and the stitching came away very quickly. Next the rubber finger protectors peeled off, and the final straw was me cutting my fingers and palms to shreds crashing and the glove just tearing easily. Very poor for 35 quid.

Strengths:    Knuckle protectors

Weaknesses:    Poorly made, fabric wears very rapidly. No padding for heel of hand.

Bottom Line:   
I bought these gloves (via the internet) as I was looking for some good quality protection and I liked the carbon-fiber knuckle protectors. Unfortunately when I got them I discovered they have no padding for the heel of the hand, which is a serious oversight in my opinion. After just three months of light use the rubber finger protectors started to peel off. They are just glued on to the fabric and come off very easily. Additionally, I wore a hole in the thumb and the fabric on the palms is also wearing very thin. These gloves are really poor quality and I wouldn't recommend them to anyone.

weak stichet


Bottom Line:   
don't buy these. mine fell apart 2 months after getting them, and just from normal use, not from falling on them. the palms are worn through and the seams are coming apart. they look nice and the carbon is a good feature, but they aren't worth what they cost.

Strengths:    looks cool, protection

Weaknesses:    NEEDS double stitching everywhere, thicker material.

Bottom Line:   
661 is a great company, but these gloves suck. After only three sessions, the crotch in the thumbs of both gloves came unstitched and I had some nice blisters going on my knuckles from the CF. These gloves need double stitching and need to go back to a split knuckle design.

Strengths:    Look kinda cool

Weaknesses:    Looks can be deceiving
- Friend's "carbon" knuckle broke in half playing around with them
- Stitching was starting to come undone by third ride
- Tore holes in the thin palm area after a small wreck


Bottom Line:   
Bought these after my Fox Sidewinders died. They looked pretty tough, so my friend and I thought we'd give them a try. For me, I found that the "carbon" knuckles would dig into my knuckles if I flexed my hand a certain way. My friend managed to break his "carbon" knuckles in half messing around with them. We're not certain if the knuckles are actually made of carbon fiber. In any case the knuckles don't take well to mild bending.
After a couple rides, I found that the stitching on mine were coming undone. Overall, the glove had a very poor quality feel to them. I ended up tearing the palms on both gloves after a small crash.
Frankly, I've been disappointed in the quality of a lot of mountain bike gloves in general, including my old Foxes. My old '94-95 Specialized S-Works gloves were much better constructed. I think I'm going to go with Mechanix for my next pair of gloves.

Strengths:    looks cool, good carbon fibre, named after cedric gracia,

Weaknesses:    incredibly thin palms, wore through them pretty dang quickly. The stitching between the thumb and first finger has a gaping hole, this is a budget product. Dont get drawn in by the carbon fibre, these babys have single stitching and thats crap on a performance product.

Bottom Line:   
dont get em. A budget product with an expensive price tag. The carbon fibre is good, but the stitching and overall quality is pretty poor.

Strengths:    Carbon fiber knuckles
Very cool look.
661 customer service - replaced my damaged 06's for 07's


Weaknesses:    Runs small
06 Version:
Not enough padding near knuckle area - gave blisters
Leather very thin on palm - wears threw easy


Bottom Line:   
These gloves run small. I usually wear larges, but I had to go with an XL.
The 2006s were crap. Luckily the customer service dept rules and sent me the 2007 version after the palms wore threw only after a couple months of riding.
The 2007 look much better. The knuckles have more padding and the palm area has more material.
I'd skip on the 06s. The 07s feel very nice on the hands.

Date Reviewed: July 13, 2006

Strengths:    -Carbon knuckles
-Good feel of shifters/brakes


Weaknesses:    -Closure tabs are falling off
-Rubber grips on finger tips peeled off after a month
-I wore 2 holes in the outside of the left palm and 1 hole in the right palm


Bottom Line:   
I liked these gloves a lot for the first couple of months I had them, but a couple of days ago I noticed that I had worn 2 holes in the left palm, and 1 in the right, and I haven't even crashed with these gloves. They would be great gloves for someone who could spend 30 bucks on a new pair of gloves every 2 months, but who really can do that? No more 661 gloves for me.
