When navigating narrow tree runs, rocky, unforgiving terrain or any technical trail, Fox delivers serious protection with their armored Unabomber Gloves. They boast Poron XRD padding on the knuckles and TPR crash guards on the palms so they're tough enough to handle rough riding and tight passages. You'll also appreciate the articulated knuckles and silicon fingertips that maximize control in all conditions.
I agree with the other reviewer - these gloves popped apart at the seams after just a couple months. The "carbon" knuckle looks cool, and I have actually rammed the outside of my hand into a wall that I rode too close to. The ballistic nylon on the outer palm area is all hairy and falling off. I've had other Fox gloves that lasted longer. They fit my hand great, I just wish they held up a little longer.
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend
