    Motocross gloves?

    I have been looking at motocross gloves and they look very similar to MTB gloves. How many of you use MX gloves and what are your opinions on them?

    i dont usually like using em, cause a lot of them have non rough leather palms which = slippery hands!

    I was wondering because some have some pretty sick designs while being relatively cheap

    Do any of the MX gloves you are looking at have wrist support e.g a big wide strap that goes around the wrist for joint support? If so what brands?

    I'm finding the best deals by googling MX gloves. the best bet for finding gloves with wrist support is to search. I just got done finding '08 leftover MX pants for $35

    Pro-Tec has a new glove called The Compound that has wrist support.

    Also EVS has the Wrister glove

    I have always used motocross gloves, no difference, same goes for jerseys/shirts. Same sport really except one uses gravity and the other an engine

    mx gloves are fine, they are all meant to hold on to grips and use levers like mtb's. If you find a good pair at a fair price go for it.

    Since we're a Azonic dealer, we can get anything we want from O' Neal... anything...

    From time to time, l'll buy myself some of the motorcross gloves. l like them because they don't have the extra padding. l don't like the feel of that padding (good grips is all l need).

    Pretty crazy how cheap the stuff is compared to bike products. Like the boots. 4 times as much material at the same price as "bike" shoes. l bought motorcross pants too but those are too hot for summer use (if you ask).

    Good idea!!

    Many cost less and last longer than the more expensive equivalent at your LBS.

    But make sure to check the opening where you insert your hand.

    Like mentioned.
    Many have different style opening. (like work glove,.no velcro at wrist), but many are same as MTB gloves with velcro closure at wrist.

    I also have had decent luck with the fox dirtpaws.

    Wore the 661's with carbon knuckles (gracia model) out in less than 6months

    I like the oakley MTB gloves the best but they are expensive. I willsee how they hold up long term and if they were worth the extra $$

    I've been wearing mx gloves for years. They are cheaper, fit better, and last much longer than bike gloves. My favorites are the Thor Core mx gloves.

    I use fox dirtpaws, theyve lasted me about 1 year so far and still going strong. They're comfy and have pretty good protection, great glove

    the reason why moto stuff is so cheap is because their market is 10x bigger then ours. dont jump ships and buy moto becuase its cheaper then your screwing our mtb based companies.

    i love my nema gloves they are perfect.
    I like to ride bikes fast.

    When you are strapped for cash, you look for a cheaper alternative so you can still afforrd the other more essential things. Also, some MX gloves look alot better than mtb gloves
