Palm and back in highly abrasion-resistant sweat-resistant and color-fast kangaroo leather Unlined palm. Back and thumb fully padded with shock-absorbing SUPROTECT and 100 Kevlar One of the most common injuries is dislocation of the little finger. This happens because the little finger is inadequately protected. To avoid this Held has given the little and ring fingers additional Kevlar padding on the inside and outside Pre-formed, crumple-free palm Special flat seams reduce pressure points on the inner hand, and enhance feel GFC shells with 100 Kevlar ceramic polymer matrix coating give perfect protection to the side of the hand and knuckles Side of hands and knuckles protected with highly abrasion-resistant rayskin, (dasyatis bleekeri), a world first.

Tried quite a few different gloves on before the Phantoms. None came close. Have had them for 3 months or so now. I use these daily commuting to and from work, rain or shine. Also use them on weekends for some aggressive riding. Have "held" up amazingly.
It is quite an investment in terms of gloves. But looking at protection, tactile feel, materials, quality and comfort you cannot go wrong with these. You really do get what you pay for.
Lets in good amounts of airflow and you dont get that clammy gross feeling you get from cheaper gloves with dodgy materials.
Negatives for me were that it seems to bunch up a bit under my fingers curling over the handlebars. Also after an hour or so of riding your hands start to go a bit numb and tingly. But taking the gloves off for 5 minutes and you're good to go.
That and my fingers seem to end up right at the fingertips of the gloves. Might just be the sizing of my hands.
I found that they were pretty much a perfect fit out of the pack. After a few hours riding with them they seem to stretch out a bit and feel even better.
If you are worried about sizing, get your measurements and possibly look into getting it smaller than what you are if in doubt.
All in all a great purchase and well worth the $$$. Enjoy!!!
Yes, I recommend this product.
