Revised Review: 2016 POC Resistance Strong Gloves

Since I first wrote this review in 2016 I have improved this review, more & better pictures, improved text, and more details.

Pros:

  •  no more twisted strap, like on 2015 Index DH glove
  • more air flow than the DH index glove provided by the holes in the palm
  • I stay cool even in 25 deg. Celsius
  • comfortable
  • true to size, I have 21cm knuckle size, and the medium fits me perfectly. I went from Index DH gloves in large which was a bit too bit too big, to this glove.
  • Durable ceramic-coated SuperFabric® with abrasion-resistant properties, this actually works.

Cons:

  • the impact protection is silly thin, they won’t help on a proper impact, I tested it with hitting my hand harder and harder on a stem.
  • Because of the holes on the palm, the durability suffers when you get something (pedal pins for example) stuck in the holes you can tear the fabric, but this is also caused by the fabric’s weakness.but if you do it can easily be fixed if you got some sewing skills.
  • the triple dots on the fingers wear off fast because they are glued on.

Holes got bigger.
  • The Stitching failed on one pair, They were Only used one day, I put these on today and the stitching came loose.
    • the glue holding the Velcro to the rubber strap failed of some pairs of gloves, but you can easily fix this with a sewing kit. Sadly I got an inconsistent quality of the stitching on these gloves with the gloves I got.
    • after many months of use, the glove stretched and had to be sewn in the palm to fit me properly.
    • the picture below shows a new glove:

    Verdict: 

    But if you want longer lasting palm to get the Index DH glove instead, but it will of course not be as cool as the Resistance glove, but the durability of the palm must be improved.

    I still use my Index DH gloves in size L, for colder days, I wear them over fleece gloves in size M, which works well.

    I will look into other gloves, like Mechanix for example, they got full finger padding and knuckle padding.
