Knox Handroid Pod Mk IV CE Glove - Black / Sand
Customer Product Reviews
Good looks allied to excellent level of protection
I wanted gloves that offered excellent levels of protection, along with superb levels of feel with the controls which were easy to use getting on and off whilst looking good - the Knox Handroid Pod Mk 4 gloves does this and more. The low level boa dial used to tighten the wrist is unobtrusive allowing you to fit under or over your jacket. The exo skeleton protection on the fingers is robust but at the same time low profile. The kangaroo leather provides confidence in using the controls. The twin palm sliders provide confidence that in the event of an off you will minimise the effect on your wrist should you place your hands down. The robust knuckle protection is extensive but at the same time low profile and comfortable. Sizing is good just follow the Knox guidelines. The addition of vents on the fingers and on the knuckle protection help with airflow and provide comfort whilst wearing in warmer weather. Overall these gloves are an excellent piece of kit and I would recommend anyone to consider them. Oh and by the way Sportsbikeshop were as usual excellent in terms of delivery.
You get what you pay for
I had a relatively inexpensive Alpinestars summer glove that started to split along a seam after a year. Decided this time to go big and hopefully get something that last a bit longer with the best protection and better quality. Quite tight when I first got them but they break in quite quickly and are now fine after about 10 rides. Thought they might feel bulky with the exoskeleton thing going on but no issues at all. Really nice gloves. I hope they last a bit longer now I've spent the extra cash.
Comfy summer gloves
A little uncomfortable at first, pinching between the fingers, but after a hundred miles or so they began to break in a little bit and are now getting to be very comfortable. Very good feel for easy use of your controls. Excellent build quality and materials. Hopefully never have to test the safety features but feel a lot more protected than I did in my last summer glove, should the worse happen.
