Strengths:    Good breathable glove. Maintains great contact with handlebars. Fits like a dream and real comfortable. Palms seem strong and the seams are well stitched

Weaknesses:    I really like these but the quality is just off in some spots. After about 2 months of riding and 1 big crash (though it was on concrete) both the thumbs and the left pinkie tore open. The odd part is none of the rips were on seams or places that contact anything during riding or falling.

Bottom Line:   
Good glove, wish they held together better in some key places

Strengths:    Very durable, have survived a few crashses. Breath well, and molded knuckle guards protect the hand without getting in the way.

Weaknesses:    One of the grippers on the finger has began to peel off, but that's not a big deal, I can superglue it back on later.

Bottom Line:   
These gloves are very good, and I would strongly reccomend them to anyone who isn't too picky about minor details such as loose threads hanging off at first (easily fixed) and grippers that peel a little (easily fixed as well). The Sixsixone Descend gloves an all around great product-that's the bottom line.

Date Reviewed: September 11, 2007

Strengths:    Comfortable, breathe well and are protective, good place to rub nose, thick palm protection. I personally havn't had any problems with the stitching even after probably 100+ hours of riding.

Weaknesses:    One of the 8 plastic finger protectors fell off because they are glued on. The mesh on top of my fingers is starting to wear down.

Bottom Line:   
Pretty dang good and very comfortable, but not super durable. If 661 made the gloves a little tougher and improved the stitiching just a little they'd get 5's all around. Maybe next year...

Date Reviewed: March 17, 2007

Strengths:    Comfort and protective layers at the right areas. Breathes very well.

Weaknesses:    ridden 3 times on park smooth tracks. 6-7km each time. Synthetic leather between thumb and forefinger started splitting. There's a hole on the thumb side and that's not stiching. Extensive wear and tear after only 3 hrs use.

Bottom Line:   
Great design. Paddings and protection at the right places but quality is poor for the price paid. What's the point of a great product that starts to fail after 3hrs use? Would have given 5 stars if it didn't tear. My grips are lizard skin grips and not rocks. I don't ride hard - just leisurely. The left glove is showing wear and tear around the thumb and forefinger. One other thing: for sports gear, washing tags in the gloves are annoying on the skin.

giant reign float shock climb mode feels same as descend mode

Hey Guys, I posted this in the Giant forum but didn't get any responses. I bought a new close out 2013 Reign 0 which came spec'd with a float CTD adjust shock. Is it normal for the rear suspension action to NOT feel locked out with the float set to Climb mode, bouncing around in a parking lot? T ... Read More »

Anyone want to do a climb/descend ride in Prescitt on Sunday?

Thinking of doing a ride up Smith Ravine, continue up Spruce Mtn to the 5.5 trail, down and then up the 3.5, then down to Smith Ravine and back. Maximum up and down. No screwing around wi ...
