AXO Striker 9to5 Shoes AXO fuses safety and style with the Striker 9to5 shoe. Built for maximum comfort on and off the bike, the Striker 9to5 utilizes an innovative BOA Closure System instead of the bulky buckles and dangerous laces found on other riding shoes. Featuring a ratcheting spool and stainless steel laces, BOA Technology allows you to find the perfect fit and fine tune it any time you need with a twist of the easy to turn ratchet. And when the ride is over, the AXO Striker 9to5 is just as easy to take off with an amazingly simple quick release opening system. New to the Striker family is the Vibram sole made of motorcycle specific rubber compound. Features Constructed of abrasion resistant PU coated Action Leather Equipped for the ride with ergonomic ankle protection Durable shift guard

Love the BOA lacing system, these are the easiest boots I've ever owned for getting in and out of them. Also, the wide toe box was welcome. I've had to send too many boots back because they pinched my toes. A word about fit - I normally wear US size 9.5, I initially went with the Euro 44 and wound up with the 43, which fits perfectly.

Fit is tight, but that's what I want for holding the armor in place. Guys who don't have a slim waist may not like the fit. My one gripe is the confounded Euro zipper with the pull on the left side!
Too early to tell whether it will hold up long term.

I ordered the size L per their sizing chart, but fingers were too short and I could barely get my hand in. Returned for XL, fit is good although the pinky finger is a touch long. No biggee. I see some reviewers have complained about how tight the wrist area is in putting the gloves on and off, I suspect they needed a size up. It's no issue for me with the XL.
Air flow is awesome, I put it on a par with the Held Airstream. I like the protection features and the fact that the cuff is long enough to wear inside my jacket sleeves and over my wristwatch. The two piece knuckle guard is nice, that hinge point makes the fit very comfortable.
These are a little pricey, but I don't mind paying extra if it gets me a better product. There are tons of $60 and $70 gloves out there, but none of them that I tried fit my needs.

I bought this glove for hot weather riding where I'm more concerned about comfort than protection. These gloves fit the bill. My one nit is that the palm material isn't that flexible and tends to bunch up a little in the grip area.
Yes, I recommend this product.
