He makes some bold claims in the "4 big secrets glove makers don't want you to know" section. I'm interested to hear what experience people have had with this glove, especially for trackday riding.

Some of that is very true. Kevlar thread may be abrasion resistant, but it is like .0010 wire when it starts to unravel. I would like to see some kevlar fabric in the abrasion areas (palm, knuckles, wristbone etc.), but all in all these look like nice gloves . . .CBRVFR said:

Of course if protective looking gloves actually worked, we'd all have these Ikon medieval gauntlets. They look like they would come in handy in a dispute with a cage driver though.........

When I had my track incident in '02, I was wearing Held's Galaxy glove, it had a CF knuckle protector. Glad it was there. One of the knuckles was smashed, obviously from substantial impact with either the ground or bike...I don't remember which...but there was no shattering or any part of the CF pertruding through the inside lining of the glove. By the looks of it, if I didn't have that protection, it wouldn't have been a pretty sight.ND4SPD said:Somehow I have a hard time believing that those carbon knuckles can shatter that easy. Every single one I've owned(and I've owned a few), the carbon has been fairly flexible. If it was totally rock solid and not flex a bit, then I can see it shattering.
