2012 RockGardn Fate Carbon Gloves

2012 rockgardn fate carbon gloves   2012 RockGardn Fate Carbon Gloves

Featuring a new 1×4 split-knuckle design, the 2012 RockGardn Fate Carbon Gloves guarantee high quality and reliable performance. Sewn to a leather edge are four independent pieces instead of a large single-piece knuckle. In turn, the leather edge is sewn to a neoprene panel, which is floating and ventilated.

To help the knuckle pieces articulate with the hand’s position, the neoprene panel slides over the breathable Airmesh top layer. This helps get rid of pressure points both for braking and gripping. Attached to the Airprene layer are the internally padded carbon-fiber forefingers and knuckles.

While the real cowhide leather inside thumb and lower palm maximize comfort and abrasion resistance, the sweat-absorbing terrycloth back thumb comes with a leather-reinforced tip. Lastly, the durability and breathability of the gloves are enhanced by its woven finger gussets.

While featuring maximum performance and great aesthetics, the 2012 RockGardn M-Theory MTB Gloves are available for a very reasonable price. This makes these mountain bike gloves one of the must-buy items for riders who are price-conscious but do not compromise the quality.

Several amazing features are offered by the RockGardn M-Theory. Comfort is optimized by its full-length TPR finger protection that has a soft-stretch Airprene knuckle panel and the silicon grippers of its reinforced palm on the middle and index fingers.

While these mountain bike gloves are perfect for DH, they can also tackle XC pretty well. On the other hand, the downsides of the RockGardn M-Theory include its heaviness when wet and its tendency to make the hands feel hot during summer rides.
