Strengths:    Backhand padding, ventilation, built tough.

Weaknesses:    Brake lever grips.

Bottom Line:   
These are awesome gloves. Fit great and have plenty of padding for those hard spills. Ventilation is suprisingly good for full fingereds. The only fault I can find with them is the rubber grips for brake levers get slippery when went. I sweat a lot so could be just my problem. No biggy. Great gloves if you can get em for cheap. Go get some!

Strengths:    *SIXSIXONE - '03 Descend
quality construction, comfortable, pro looks, good protection.

Weaknesses:    wanted black, had to get blue in my size= XL to fit my medium-size paws..

Bottom Line:   
bought these on sale (half price). Great deal on quality full-fingered gloves. They are very comfortable. Don't seem to make my hand too hot. Palm padding is sparse for good bar feel.
Check BeyondBikes.com , see if they're still on sale!

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

Ok, so I cannot descend with my Mojo SL. What´s going on?

Hi all, First of all, I come from a Chumba VF2, size M which is equal to the Large Mojo SL. The thing is that in the VF2, I felt really confident while descending on rocky terrain and in general while descending technical stuff. Well, I´ve been riding my Mojo SL for about 2 months and I ha ... Read More »
