If NASA decided to go motocross racing, they'd research, develop, design and craft a glove exactly like the Troy Lee Designs SE glove. The end result of over a decade of ceaseless R&D and meticulous attention to detail, the SE glove leaves nothing to be desired.

Bought these about a week ago at £17.99, just came on here (I really should stop!) to find they've gone down again. Typical.
I'm about to order another pair.
Well, first - they are very very comfortable. They are thinner than the photo implies, but that isn't a bad thing - the feel and grip these provide is superb.
Second, they look great. Not essential but it's nice. The black/black/black theme with a lot of my gear is boring as heck. And they match my bike, so I look mega-cool.
Third... I paid this price for a set of muddyfox full finger gloves. 'nuff said.
Negatives... Well theres always one and this is no exception.
- They are rather snug. It feels intentional, and I don't feel like they restrict me at all, but the fingers especially are quite snug on me. I do however have rather chunky hands.
- Water/weather resistance: Non-existent. They dry quickly but don't really provide any protection from the elements.
- Finally, the palm on the ones I have is white synthetic leather. Great grip and all on them, but everything I grip firmly or rub against at all is left with a white powder-y fluff on it from the synthetic leather. I can't really describe it. Nothing major, though it does make me doubt how long these will last. Sawdust, that's a good comparison. In the sense of, they leave a sawdust-like residue on grips (I'm using ODI Rouges) and trouser legs and pretty much anything else. It washes/brushes off fine, isn't scratchy and in no way affects anything, just doesn't look pretty. Oh, and the palm being white makes them look dirty within about 15 seconds of hitting a trail in British weather.
That said, I've washed mine since a ride in Kingley Vale park this week and they are as good as new, almost. I hand wash my gloves, literally - wear them while washing them.
All said and done, I'll get a second pair for when I loose/tear/ruin these somehow.

Perfect fit, tough and light. These gloves have been soaked in grease, muddy water and goodness knows what else in the last year. They are still completely intact and have saved my hands in countless scrapes with terra firma. The decals and tubing have not split away or broken off and the air flow to your palms via the thumb venting and back of the hand is good enough to stop you hands shrivelling up and looking like you've been the bath for an hour. Great kit from troy lee.

These gloves are the best I've tested out ten different brands. They're tight and have a rigid grasp and simultaneously feels very smooth. They also have good ventilation and they are very good looking!
