With the standard Sidewinder glove a proven favorite of dirt lovers everywhere, Fox has taken steps to make a version that can withstand not just mud and grime, but the cold, too, with the Fox Sidewinder Polar Gloves.
Fox uses its proprietary Airprene padding over the knuckles for sufficient protection without bulk. Ax Suede Fit is used on the palm for durability, breathability, and excellent bar feel. The Polar version of the glove then adds 160 GMS Polar insulation to better retain warmth. The mesh backing of the hand means your hands stay warm but can still breathe so they won't get all clammy. The finger gussets are lined with wind- and water-resistant TPU, silicone details on fingertips enhance grip, and a low-profile hook-and-loop tab cuff closure stays out of the way.
The Fox Sidewinder Polar Glove comes in five sizes, from Small to XX-Large, and in the colors Black and Flo Yellow.

- Q & A
I used these for the first time on the Whole Enchilada in Moab.... It snowed/rained the entire time, but my hand were never too cold to ride on.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: XL
- Height: 6'4"
- Weight: 187lbs
The glove looks pretty cool, with good stiches and protection, the only problem it's IT RUNS SMALLER; i bought and XL and it wouldn't fit my hand (i've bought a couple other fox XL gloves, and all fine for me); it's a shame, I got back to Chile and it would be more expensive to send it back for exchange.
