Description

Keep it simple.

From dirt jumps to freeride, the Sombrio Forensic Cuffless Glove provides protection with a super-minimal approach. Stretch Chamude palms get the double-layer treatment for toughness, and the cuff stops right at the bottom of your palm with just a tab for tuggin’ on. Tug on, pull off, no straps or bulk.

Sombrio product quality/design is slipping

These gloves have only gone on about 4 rides. The stitching is sub-par, already coming out in places. No way they'll last a season (~60 rides for me). Additionally, this year's forensic has a seam on the outer palm that can cause discomfort on long rides. I see this seam on a lot of gloves - I don't know what's so hard about recognizing that major contact points aren't good locations for seams. There is a snot guard this year but the improvement is lost on me; I'd rather have fit, comfort, & durability. I was a big fan of Sombrio a couple years ago. In my assessment, their product quality & design has been declining the past 2 years.

Does the job!

Well, Backcountry sent me an irregular size. I ordered a pair of large, the right one fits perfect, the left one is a little too big. It's super comfortable though and the grip is really nice. I would definitely recommend these gloves, but just hope that you got the right pair.

Thumb seam coming unstitched

I like these gloves. Size is true and styling in good. They have 2 layers of material on the palm providing enough padding, no interference with "feeling" the grip.
Now for the bad, the seam is coming unstitched on the right hand glove where the thumb joins the cuff. I didn't pay much for them (Chainlove deal) so it is not worth returning. After seeing the other post mentioning the same thing, I am glad I didn't pay the full price for them or I would be disappointed. Buyer beware. I'll fix it with needle and thread.

Love these!

As stated by another reviewer, these are very comfortable and fit true to size.
I had the chance to test out the durability of the materials when my front tire washed out on a sunken railroad track, and the gloves did their job, protecting my hands from skinnage, and the material's no worse for it.
My only complaint/suggestion for these would be to add a nose-wipe chamois on the back of the thumb.

trying out for 2nd time

super comfortable/good fit. had to go one size bigger then usual.
the seam on the palm that holds the thumb on blew out after the first 30 miles of riding, but backcountry replaced them with no hesitation. hopefully i just got a defective pair.
