For all the beauty of POC's downhill gloves, some of us find ourselves preferring something a bit lighter, more flexible, and with a more sensitive feel for the bar. The Index Flow Gloves are lightweight and feature knuckle protection not found in other similar gloves.
The Index Flow Gloves have soft pads on the second and third knuckles of the two outer fingers of each hand, which makes them more flexible in general and movement in the fingers is a bit more independent. The back of the hand is composed of a breathable nylon mesh. The palm uses a synthetic suede, but it's textured for a positive grip in all conditions. The gloves are secured in place thanks to a full wraparound Airprene cuff and a soft Velcro strap. And while it's built for the extreme set, it's still light and dexterous enough for XC applications that require a little something extra. The Index flow is even touchscreen-compatible.
The POC Index Flow Gloves - Women's come in Sulfur pink, Uranium black, and Krypton blue. They're available in sizes XS through XXL.

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
Just ordered a second pair. Tight fit, great details and they aren't too hot. Color is more of a dark navy blue. Also - these are definitely not in any way Women's sized. So order up while the price is good, gentlemen!
