The FATE Carbon Gloves™ feature a new, 1 X 4 split-knuckle design. Rather than one large knuckle piece, there are four independent pieces sewn to a leather surround that is, in turn, sewn to a floating, ventilated neoprene panel. This panel glides over the underlying Airmesh layer, allowing the knuckle pieces to articulate with the position of your hand, eliminating pressure points whether you're gripping or braking.
RockGarden Gloves Features:
Carbon fiber forefinger protection
Silicon grippers on middle and index fingers

Rated 3 out of 5 by River29 Made for people with freakishly small hands
I received this the other day and upon initial inspection the quality of the product looks to better than what I would consider average for the market. The stitching looks better than anything I've seen on Fox or Giro gloves. Unfortunately, I can't speculate about the actual functionality as there is no way these would fit me. I read several reviews saying that they run small for the size. Just for the record I do not have strange shaped hands, I have never struggled to find a pair of gloves that fit me. I usually wear a medium so I figured it would be a safe bet to order a large. The large is probably smaller than any medium I have ever tried on and I would guess that it's about the size of an average small. Additionally, the pinky finger portion looks proportionally even smaller.
In all the product quality looks good but the design and sizing may only work for people with really small pinky fingers and generally tiny hands.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Perky Very strong palms but not so comfortable
These gloves are great if you are looking for strong palms that wont rip apart after 1 fall. They are not the most comfortable glove as they have gone for a thicker more protected palm which really works when you bail onto rough ground, hardly a mark from bailing into rough stones when on a DH run.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Awesome gloves! I have found these gloves to be very comfortable, they fit great, LOOK great and have the protection in the areas that matter. Quality and construct is pretty good 4stars.
The stitching on the velcro strap could be a little better but that can be fixed easily by my wife. lol
All in all I'd recommend these gloves and I'll definitely buy these again once mine wear out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Be careful with the size
Gloves seems to be of good quality but I couldn't wear it because of the size. My hand is a perfect M but the M size I bought is too small. M size is like a S size, so bear it in mind when you place the order!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Great glove
So why only 4 stars you may ask...The gloves are really comfortable, have great grip, the mesh keeping hands cool and seem really tough, but luckily have yet to try this out. Only 4 stars due to the velcro fastening, which progressively lost hooks,meaning I have had to go out and buy some more velcro hooks and sew them on. If you are handy with a sewing kit, or someone that is buy these!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Очень удобные и мощные перчатки. Отличные материалы. Пальцы хорошо защищены при езде тем не менее очень хорошо продуваются. Из минусов только не очень аккуратно сделана застёжка и шов на большом пальце стёрся со временем, исправил заклеиванием) но своих денег однозначно стоят.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Once they broke in these are a lot more comfortable than they look and feel really really tough. When your fingers are on the bars or breaks the carbon pieces move in the exact position to take a front impact unlike most other gloves.
