POC is well known for their protection product.
I have several POC products now and I recommend checking them out.
This glove is my favorite glove so far.
they cost the same as the giro remedy X gloves and are way better when it comes to comfort & Poc offers protection padding but Giro does not.
because these gloves were actually bit too big(size large) I changed to 2016 Resistance strong gloves(size medium),the palm on some of the gloves worn out, I think this is caused by the material used & the venting holes in them, so far the Index Dh has been holding up OK,but I guess over long period of time they will eventually wear too.
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
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, and I don’t regret it.
Durable ceramic-coated SuperFabric® with abrasion resistant properties
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.
the glue holding the Velcro to the rubber strap failed of some pairs of gloves.
Verdict: Recommended, because of the protection and ventilation they provide.
If you want Gloves with protective padding, and good air flow/ventilation these gloves are the best gloves you can get,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 the Resistance gloves in size M, which works well.
you will definitely feel the stitching,and and that you got the glove on but it its still a wearable glove
these gloves do not have a knuckle protection even it might look like they do for you.
the part of the glove that got camo on it wears fast, it will wear out when washed often,the colours will fade,the small venting holes will be bigger or rip apart.
Protection on the fingers and and padding on the palm and side, so you wont get scratched when you hit a tree,but if will not give you full protection its not like knee or elbow pads
The synthetic leather from the palm extends over the finger tips so the stitching won’t wear off or rip, and its comfortable,not like on the Mavic’s or Shimano gloves where the stitching came upward and under my finger nails.
special stitching with touch screen support,and it works well.
not very comfortable, but wear able, but if you want very comfy gloves these are not for you,You can clearly feel the seams
the hook and loop strap do wear out very fast, father Ca 2 month it worn out
the protection pads are bad, not like on the Poc Index DH Vpd 2.0, witch is my favourite glove so far.
the touch screen stitching began to wear.
the glued-on rubber is peeling off, but this is normal, you can’t glue rubber on fabric and expect to stay on.
the vent on the left long finger rip
I can’t recommend these gloves,the lack of comfort and durability makes this a Not recommend product.
