Updated Review: 2015 Poc Index DH Vpd 2.0

Post originally posted Dec 16, 2015& Updated 12.01.2017

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.

Pros

  • very comfy
  • light weight
  • Velcro strap
  • perfect fit.
  • Excellent padding
  • 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.

Cons:

  • The adjustment strap is twisting.

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.

Conclusion: Recommended, for durability I recommend getting Index DH over the newer 2016 Resistance Strong gloves.

In my opinion, they are currently the best MTB gloves on the market right now.

long term review: Mavic Stratos gloves

if you are used to Shimano or Giro gloves, get a size smaller,atleast if you are in europe.

i got these in large but they are too big for me,hopefully i get these in medium.

this is a well made glove.

these gloves do not have padding,this might be a negative thing to you, but if you use ESI grips, or another silicone grip, you wont regret having this glove.

i use ESI Chunky green grips with these gloves its a good combo.

but on hard grips like those that came with all my trek bikes, it will be uncomfortable and you will get fatigue

afther a crash the stitching on the left thumb ripped, but nothing that you cant fix with soem sewing.

cons: 

the price,but its was worth it for me i did not wear it out just in few weeks.

rubber on finger tips will eventually wear out,(the the glue will be worn out)

pros:

  • good feel, you feel every thing you touch the glove is not restricting your movement.
  • Breathable perfect for hot weather
  • easy to take & off
  • material used for the palm is strong, my experience wit hthis material is that it last a very long time.
  • come in 2 color choises
  • grips well i have tried them on Easton mtb grip,bontrager grips, and esi grips.
  • rubber on the finger tips for extra grip, they actually work, not like on Shimano gloves that make it slippery.
  • only wear is the rubber grips that are gloves on the finger tips.but just one of those loosened,
  • the materials used are strong,
  • will fit very thick hands

TEST: Twentyfour Svalbard Hanske

mine hansker har grønn farge istedet for lime og har twentygfour logo på pekefnger, Bra

  • godt grep
  • bra passform,jeg brukte de mange ganger i regnvær og vind på sykkel.
  • ingen problem med bremsing,lett å bevege fingrene.
  • behagelige hansker
  • ingen plagsomem sømmer inni hansken
  • lange nok så du kan trtekke en jakke over de
  • lett å ta på og av

Ikke Bra

  • insiden av hanskene krøller seg,men det kan man fikse lett.
  • jeg syklet i forferdelig regnvær og hanskene ble helt gjennom våte,for å få hanskene vanntette må du bruke impregnering dette har jeg ikke prøvd ennå.
  • den ene flate strikken falt av
  • mine hansker hadde for lange tråder hengene fra sømmene

shimano EXPLORER LONG GLOVE- low quality gloves

Size: i purschased these in size Medium,they fit well,but shimano the Bontrager gloves i had were size large

cycling:

Ather some weeks the gloves show signs of use on the material used on the grey/pink part of the fingers

ather few months with riding

very breathable

the finger tip stripes will fall off afther some weeks of riding,they are pointless they do nto provide extra grip

the finger tips got worn out on theindex fingers

if you crash and fall on the asphalt the the synthethic leather can ripp little bit,if its a big rash they will proobably be ruined, it depends how hard  you hit the ground.

the thumb part changed color from black to brown on my pair i use for riding.

in october they were totally worn out. stitches broke on the fingers.

the gloves could use soem more padding

simracing:

i have 2 pairs of this glove. they don’t look that mutch used .

if you are a drifter they will be worn out as fast as on a mountainbike.

PROS

  •  comfortable
  • breathable

cons 

not durable

the shapes on the finers do nto give you extra grip

the touch fasteners straps wornout afther few months,

no tourch screen support on the finger tips

conclusion

i can’t recomend these gloves

Review: Bontrager evoke 2015 mountainbike glove

i purschased these in size Large,they fit well,but shimano the shimano gloves i had were size Medium

i have used these gloves for mtb.

there is a womens version in light blue only difference is the color realy.

afther few days of riding:

natural and confortable fit.

inForm design reduses the  fatigue,but not as mutch as gloves with gel inserts but gel inserts have a big con they wear out fastcan feel the stiching but still confortable.

afhter few days the bontrager logos start to wear off.

pros:

  • Excellent brake lever feel
  • the bontrager logos on the fingers give you extra grip
  • Simple pull-on design makes it easy to take them on and off
  • very breathable in the heat
  • decent price

cons: 

  • no touch screen support o nthe fingertips
  • afther few months the sides of the fingers ripped apart.
  • the gloves will rip apart easier because of no strong material on the fingertips
