The only thing stopping me from giving these super tough gloves 5 stars is the rubber stripping on a couple of fingers has started coming off. It's just cosmetic, not a functional issue.
These gloves performed well for me in a 12 hour downhill race. I went down on a snowy gravel road at 40 mph and slid a good ways on one hand. The tough leather palm held up and kept me from turning my hand into hamburger.
I've taken a couple of hard shots to the knuckle area and no damage. The protection has held up well. I would recommend these to anyone looking for some serious hand protection. They look pretty sharp, too.
