ICON Rimfire Gloves Icon knows you like to ride fast. They know you love to live dangerously. And, like speeding bullet, you always hit your target. The Icon Rimfire Gloves definitely hit theirs. The mix of old-school style with modern protection and a design only Icon 1000 could come up with, these gloves are full throttle cool. Pre-tensioned elastic in the palm reduces bunching. Integrated floating D3O knuckle armor and a cadre of metal palm rivets provide a roadworthy pedigree. The Rimfire is a riding glove that captures the fortitude and grace of a more civilized era. Features: D3O armor in knuckle Abrasion resistant premium grade french cowhide chassis Floating knuckle construction for flexibility Secure wrist closure keeps glove in place Pre-curved palm and finger design Riveted palm has nomex heat-resistant backing

Great glove. I had a high-side get off at about 30km/ph. I was in a large empty parking-lot practicing emergency stops, and I found my speed to stopping power ratio the hard way :) .I slid for about 15-25 (hard to say) feet on my hands (Icon 1000 Rimfire) and feet (Icon 1000 series boots -2012). The gloves and boots did the job. However...the rivets in the palm of the glove did break free, and some dug into my hand. No serious damage (no need for hospital, just some first aid). Over all the gloves did what they are designed to do, but I would not recommend these for high speed riding, had I been doing 80km instead of 30...suffice it to say I would be regretting my purchase :) But for localized commuting and just buzzing around, these are an excellent (stylish) glove. I am now in the market for something with a bit more palm protection, but I will buy another pair of these (old ones are compromised) for work and back rides.
Yes, I recommend this product.
