Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

The gloves feature a large soft chammy on the thumb that is great for runny noses and wiping sweat, as well as two wide silicone strips on the tips of the thumb, index, and middle fingers for extra grip for the brake levers and shifter paddles.
A stretchy, breathable mesh upper helps to vent heat and wick sweat, while a perforated, synthetic suede palm with reinforced, silicone-tipped fingers give extra grip on handlebars.
2mm of crash padding adds a bit of protection without making the glove too hot or unwieldy.
The DNDs have “flex zones” on the index and middle fingers for better articulation, and silicone on the tips of those fingers and the thumbs for improved contact with brake and shift levers.

What reviewers didn't like

Minimal protection
Overall, the DNDs are almost as good as the Cross-X in terms of durability, but they lack the protection on the knuckles and the adjustable wrist strap that help the Cross-X stand out as our favorite.
These feel rather breathable but they’re definitely not the lightest gloves in this review and offer a little more protection.
