    I use Mac Tools Mpact mechanics gloves they are awesome and hold up better than anything I have ever used.

    but they are not mtn bike bling-bling so your friends might not think your that cool if that is really important to you

    this man gets it.

    i dont need big knuckle guards, all I really want gloves for is the palm padding (long rides and after a lot of use my palms get sore) and so that when my hands get sweaty theyre not slipping off of the handlebars

    " FIST of FURY " carbon knuckle DH glove .
    He will also be riding a custom xl streetfighter prototype frame with glow in the dark paint !

    These gloves have gone through extensive testing with everyone from Pro riders to members of Law enforcement , some of my friends even got a bit crazy at a party and were punching through 40oz bottles , walls , eachother and from what I hear a semi pro boxxer then decided to put them on saying " I fell invincable ah hahah " All hulk style and proceeded to lay haymakers on a oak tree for about 5 min tearing the tree to bits .
    I did see the gloves after this maylay and they were a bit scratched up but no visable dammage .

    Mr. Zach Dank of the LOD has a pre production pair also and is currently testing them , can't wait to hear his reaction .

    I spent countless hours desiging these gloves to be THE best harcore mtb glove around.
    These photos are of the pre-production samples , look for a full breakdown and pics of the production models very soon !! Everyone who has gotten to try the samples has flat out loved them ! very good fit with a much better carbon knuckle design then most of the gloves on the market .

    I tried these gloves on the other day...they're comfy, even though they were like 2 sizes too big...not only will they keep you from scraping your knuckles on trees and keep ya from breaking them too (knuckles & fingers)....but I was thinking of taking them to the street and kickin' some street fightin' arse with them too...(be good for cage fighting as well)...these suckers are thick as well...don't think they'll wear as fast as most other gloves...
    nice work brad!!!

    I got the 661 Cedric Gracia gloves at Sea Otter for 30 bucks. Screamin' bargain. I absolutley love the gloves, so much. They fit really well, and provide perfect grip.

    A few things I like:

    The Carbon knuckle may seem like overkill, but it isn't, If you take a unexpected crash, your hands often get tangled in the bars. This happened to me AT the Sea Otter Downhill. I luckily had my Cedric's on, and the carbon knucle saved my ass. I would bruised up my knuckled mad from the brake levers if I didn't have them on.

    Grippy Stuff at the end of the finger on the glove will grab your brake levers at the tip. A nice perk when you panic and need the break, and your fingers are gradually slipping.

    Thumb fit: I love the way the thumb fits. I like how it is slim, hugs your thumb, and doesn't have any excess fabric. So you can thumb shift with ease.

    nice work brad!!!
    That's great thank you !

    I really overdid myself with these things , glad to hear Zach got his and there working out .The gloves work very well for kicking ass ! all the bums and low level weed dealers here in Folsom get out of my way now !

    BTW should have smalls in the next few weeks ! We are also doing a thong with help from our friends at Cosabella http://www.Cosabella.com

    The Gloves feature 4x kevlar stiching all around and a full Kevlar thumb with soft upper patch for nose wipeing !!

    I agree, those are by far the best biking gloves I've ever had. They absorb tons of vibration, take enormous amounts of abuse, and don't fall apart in 3 weeks like "mtb" specific gloves.
    If I get lost, don't go too fast!

    i got the cedrics as well and i think they suck a$$. 2 races with them and they already ripped in the plams and on one of the seams and i didnt even crash.

    these gloves suck

    although I'm a fan of thongs...you might want to think about going with bikini briefs with your logo on the butt...that way you always have the possibility of a great photo op of a chick hitting a drop or something in a skirt...and the photo from the rear show her skirt flying up with your company name on her arse...might be a good magazine ad...

    BTW...nice shirts too...Z looks sooo cute in it...

    I'm sporting one right now ..... the FofF shirt not the thong .... hahahah

    That would be a great ad shoot ! The thongs wont be super tini thongs , big enough to ride or dance in ! with our crosshairs logo on the butt and rubber logo tab .
    Made a few for the SMT photo shoots .
    Glad you like Z in the shirt !!!ahahahaha LOL just cracking up at your quote how he's sooooooo cute ... funny !

    I was just being a dork about Z...I always buy him those shirts cuz I like guys in them...they look decent without actually having to talk them into wearing a button up...

    and actually IMO...the less material up the crack the more comfortable they are...figured you might want the girls perspective since you probably don't sport them too often...

    yours sound pimpin' though...I'm gonna have to order myself a few pairs...

    THose carbon knuckled gloves are shweeeet

    I haven't been able to ride in 2 weeks cause on my last ride I when OTB and landed between 2 boulders and some how managed to smash my left hand on one of those rocks. I fractured 2 of my metacarples(middle and ring) and have very little grip. If I was sportin those, I have no doubt I'd still be out riding today. I'll be scoring a pair of those quick!
    It's not a good ride if you don't scare yourself at least once.

    Iron Clad

    Iron Clad Framer's Gloves. $24 at the hardware store.

    Comfy gloves with palm protection, but no padding. They have bike glove features like wicking fabric, terry nose-wiping panel, etc.

    Thumb, Index and middle finger tips are 3/4 length (for holding nails) but serve to make trail repairs or rolling joints much easier.

    They also last MUCH longer than regular bike gloves.
