    Those Fox Bomber Gloves blow. If you want a cheaper version of the Fox Bomber Gloves, cram your hands into a toaster, it actually might be cooler in there.

    the bomber gloves were alright... but mine had qc problems... the cf on one of them was at a weird place and was cutting my knuckles... I was just too lazy to call fox up... sure they wouldve fixed the problem for me though...

    I don't think they're that bad at all. I've never really noticed them being too hot, and I think they're pretty comfy (unlike a lot of armored gloves). Jersey looks nice too

    I didn't like mine. The only thing they were good at is keeping your hands protected, which I guess is a plus. They had bad upper palm padding near the fingers, I got fat blisters one Northstar trip.

    Mine got EXTREMELY hot at Northstar.

    Actually you'll find that the Carbon Knuckle comes in more handy for getting tangled in the bars. Brake levers can mess up your hands!

    That and punching SMT in the face. I rock Carbon Knuckle Gloves just for that reason.

    Dude you know only Im riding local DJ parks, urban stuff and local DH/FR. Im dont plan on riding in the south. i have fingerless gloves for XC and some fox dirtpaws for AM and light freeride. These will also help prevent some of the local stoners from trying to take my bike again.

    We all know stoners are soooo afraid of carbon fiber. And assault is such a nice charge to deal with. You're better off swinging your fists without gloves. Or waving around a mini-pump... I know my knuckles are a lot sharper than that little patch of material.

    Gloves

    I have those gloves in white. They were great for Diablo last season. Held up nicely.

    As I recall... you weren't attacked last time. Or even mugged. It was just some jackass driving next to you and following you around. People have nothing better to do, they'll mess with kids... especially when they're riding a bike in a full-face helmet - looking like a stormtrooper gone wrong.
