Defuse the situation.
The combination of perforated leather and Poron D30 knuckle protection makes the Fox Racing men's Unabomber Gloves a hot-weather favorite for aggressive riders. This construction allows air to flow freely through the gloves so your hands remain dry and in control, and the padding — only in spots you need it — keeps your fingers safe if you clip a tree or take a header.
On the palm, synthetic Clarino is extremely durable and delivers heaps of grip so you don't come off the bars. Light, low-profile padding at the heel of the wrist helps protect in the event of a spill, while silicone detailing on the inside of the fingers keeps that from happening by providing excellent purchase on your brake levers and shifters.

High Protection but Breathable
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: XL
Very high level of protection but in a breathable package. Suitable for long days of pedaling. Love the location of the protective pads on the outer knuckle - right where I always bash things. Comfortable palm. Construction seems bomber. Note on sizing: would not go so far as to say they run extremely small, but if you are in between you may consider sizing up. I originally ordered size large and found the fit right on the border of being too tight. I ended up sizing up to XL which fit length wise much better, though are a bit on the roomy side through the mid-hand. Once strapped down they feel fine.
Breathable version of Bomber glove
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: small
I bought these after years of using the more heavy duty version, Bomber glove from Fox. The Bomber glove was indeed that, I was beginning to find them very hot and heavy for the sort of high desert riding I do. The Unabomber is much more comfortable and lightweight for those hot days or more cardio based riding.
I love most aspects about them minus the fourth finger color bleeds on to my hand when I get sweaty. I had gotten the Cyan colorway which looks awesome. The color comes off my hand after a quick wash with hand soap, but was alarming to see the first time it happened.
They do breath so much better then the carbon re-enforced Bomber, and with light padding offer good protection for most trail based riding activities.
