Instead of compromising between weight and protection, our AUTOMATIC GLOVE finds the perfect balance to give you exactly what you need. Mesh keeps it lightweight while Unobtainium® plating helps protect the knuckle zones. Clarino® is an integral part of this design, and it brings durability to the one-piece palm without diminishing responsiveness. We used more on the thumb to shield you from branch strikes and brush swipes. The first and second fingers have a high-grip pattern, and AUTOMATIC has a nose-wipe zone of soft terry. If you’re into short climbs and ultra sketchy descents, this is the glove to wear.

Gloves feels great, but the knuckle protection feels very dull. Not for anyone in the FR/DH kind of riding. I would have liked covered plating with padding over the knuckles. Quality materialwise feels great though.

Decent gloves, wrist tabs come of easily(I only have one after five months), as does all the print on the palms. They breathe well, but provide little protection from the elements. The white tends to discolor quickly. I like how they look, they are tight and well fitted(Large is an 8), and the price is right for the brand name.
