Model/Year: 2017

Pros: Comfortable, sporty looking, well padded, good grip

Cons: Durability, price

Recommendation: I bought a couple of pairs of these: one direct from Fox and two from an online distributor. The ones online came from Korea and were smaller than the same size direct from Fox. The quality of the Korean gloves are poor and one ripped after two rides. The one direct from Fox, while clearly better quality, has quite a bit of fraying and one of the accent pieces came off by the wristband. These are not close to the quality of my other Fox Digit gloves which i've used for years without issue.

Recommendation: I have several of these gloves, they change slightly every year but are basically the same design. They are around $20 on Amazon and well worth it. I have 3 pair that have lasted 3 seasons now.

Pros: Have had these gloves for three years now and they are still holding out. I ride a lot during the summer and do downhill while in Wyoming and Montana. They have taken a good beating but they are still comfortable.

Cons: Hot when over 80, hands sweat a lot.

Model/Year: 2014

Pros: - Good Fit
- Look Good
- Quality Construction

Cons: - Warmer than I would like

Recommendation: I just got these to replace a pair of Oakley gloves that fell apart. They seem to be higher quality and fit better. I don't think they grip as well as the Oakleys but the grips wore off extremely fast on the Oakleys so if these last they are better.

As these are marketed as lightweight XC gloves I was rather surprised with how thick they are. The few rides I have done have left my hands sweaty but I have not ran into any issues with poor grip resulting from sweaty hands. I guess the tradeoff for better quality is a bit heavier material. Overall for the price I would recommend these gloves.
