The new Sub glove chassis enjoys several benefits previously found only on gloves at a much higher price. Built around a proven Battlehide goatskin palm and finger gussets foundation, the Sub is more than ready for asphalt chaos. A lightweight textile backhand with a high-mobility thumb, not only creates a prime canvas for Icon's finest art, but provides excellent dexterity and abrasion resistance. Completing the protection package is the plastic knuckle armor group fortified to help disperse the shock of the incoming tarmac barrage. The Sub glove - designed to do your dirty work so your skin doesn't have too. Abrasion resistant premium grade Battlehide goatskin palm Injected plastic knuckle armor Short cuff design with secure wrist closure Pre-curved palm and finger design Imported

First, these gloves look awesome. Icon tends to style their products towards the street bikes, but these would look good throttling a Harley, if you so desire. The palm is a little thinner than you might expect, but it gives great tactile feedback and percision (i wrote this sentence actually wearing them). The vents on the knuckle seem a little hokey at first, but they move air amazingly well (at 40 mph in 50 degree weather, my knuckles were frozen). The fingers are pre-curved, but very slightly, so you can straighten them out and not have the glove bunch up at the top. The only thing I have concerns about is how well they'd hold up in a crash. Plastic on the knuckles is hollow (for the vents), so it feels like it would crack under an extreme impact (Haven't tested this yet), and as I said before, the battlehide palm is quite thin. For what you pay, though, I think these are some of the better gloves out there.
