    I've been rocking Fox Inclines for the past 2 year. Best gloves hands down I have ever owned. Yes they are XC gloves. After 2 year did they just rip. Im going to be replacing them with the same.

    Fox gear, for me, seems to fall apart really easily. Another option is AXO gloves, there are some great deals on them online and they fit well and have decent durability.

    I dont really like my fox bombers. They rip fairly easy (not from crashing) and theyre hot inside. Also they cause me many calusses or blisters or whatever
    My next gloves will probably be rockgardn's carbon fiber gloves

    brooklyn machine works gloves. No question the toughest gloves. I used mine for 2 seasons. Granted they were trashed before i got rid of them. but they were f-ing tough gloves, lots of protection too. I will only buy those from now on.

    I had a pair of AXO gloves. They honestly lasted me two runs at Snowshoe. They split right at the palm. But that is not to say they are bad gloves. I have also split and torn Fox and 661. The best gloves I have found are at Home Depot. The mechanics gloves last much longer and are like $15 at your local Depot.

    i've never found a pair of gloves that last more than a month and i've been trying different gloves for over 25 years. if you ride, your gloves fall apart, that's all there is to it. these people whose gloves last a year or more obviously spend very little time on the saddle...

    i've used a bunch of different types too. previously, fox were my favorites (for fit and durability) but have also used two different versions of rockgardn fate gloves and some TLDs. the rockgardns didn't fit me real well and didn't really hold up very well. they have a bunch of armor in the back, but who lands on the back of their hand in a crash?

    my new favorite is oakley hand-ratchet. i can't say much about durability since i only have a hand-full (punny) of rides on them, but they are by far the best fitting and most comfortable gloves i've rideen with.

    i am sure you have encounterd brambels(?) and stinning nettels. not forgetting black thorn bushes, those gloves i had were the onlly ones that stopped my hands from facing a simialr threat as our tires do every day

    (as always i am sorry for any spelling mistakes.)

    ...sure, including cactus here in az. but with all that stuff even the gloves with the rubber on the back was enough to stop that. i just decided to stop paying extra for carbon knuckles. i think they look cool, but are really not any more effective than the direct injected rubber found commonly on fox and the tld stuff.

    i mostly had problems with the 661 raji with thorns and stuff. they offered no protection at all. plus, i really havent been into the 661 designs in the past couple of years.

    I've been thru lots of gloves over the years. By far my favorites were anything TLD. They are the best quality, most comfortable, most durable gloves out there. Right now I have some Airs, XCs, GPs, and Apexes. All nice gloves.

    I heard shock pumps make for some serious hand protection!












    But only if you shred down-town NYC.

    First I had Fox Digit gloves, which worked a hole within a month or so, then I got a pair of Fox Sidewinders which worked a hole within a few weeks. I thin I'm over Fox gloves.....

    I had some fox dirtpaw gloves for a year. they were pretty trashed when I finally replaced them, but I got another pair because the place they were falling apart was at the fingertips, and so they were still wearable. It wasn't until one of the stitching on my braking finger started interfering that I replaced them. I'm all for getting something cheap and just wearing it into the ground, and not replacing it the second it starts falling apart. long as it stays on my hand and covers most of it, its good by me!

    Fox, Dakine, Sombrio all make decent gloves that sometimes last and sometimes fall apart. It's always a gamble at this level of glove. 1 pair will have great stitching, the next pair will be falling apart on the rack. If you go with this level of glove, go to the store and look them over very carefully until you find one that looks perfect.

    OR, go with Dainese gloves. You'll easily spend 2-3x as much for your gloves but the construction is a cut above the disposable gloves that most MFG's produce. I'm currently riding with a pair of their Techno Lite Gloves. They seamlessly transition between hard and soft protection and still breathe very well, easily the highest quality gloves that I have owned.

    I got some 661 Cedric last year they last me no more than 2 months. They really disintegrated .I mailed them back to 661 and they send me new ones,and after a month I am having the same problem.They are very cheaply made and you pay good money for it.

    661 Cedric have the reputation of falling apart on the first ride.

    Thor Core MX gloves are the best I've ever used. They last much longer and fit better than anything I've had by Fox, 661/AXO, Specialized, DaKine, etc. The cheaper Thor Static and Phase gloves are also super durable but not as comfortable as the Cores. If you want gloves with lots of protection (carbon knuckles, etc.) then Dainese are the best.
