RockGardn New Fate Carbon GloveThe FATE Carbon Gloves feature a 1 X 4 split-knuckle design. Rather than one large knuckle piece, there are four independent pieces sewn to a leather surround that is, in turn, sewn to a floating, ventilated neoprene panel. This panel glides over the underlying Airmesh layer, allowing the knuckle pieces to articulate with the position of your hand, eliminating pressure points whether you're gripping or braking.
Great gloves for the price. They are comfortable and the air goes right through them keeping my hands cool. I use them every time i ride not just for DH. I recommend them.
Let me preface by saying I bought these about six months ago, and I don't recall if it was here, of from another shop online. These gloves fit horribly. Fingers short and stubby, wrist closure is huge, like ones wrist was the size of your calf! Nearly impossible to get a snug fit with velcro strap, as it's so unusually big. Breathable material helps keep hand cooler and drier, but not so much as a fingerless or two/three-finger glove. Palm is nice & sticky Fingers began to fray and open up at the tips after only four or five commute rides - extremely light duty, and low stress. If you could find them at a closeout price, you might consider it, but if you're looking for something durable and well fitting, pass on these.
