Equipped with Boa Lacing system they don’t have any pressure points so that you feel irritated while wearing them. They feel like they are almost not tight enough and that they will slip away, but don’t worry, they won’t. Made out of more than fifty strands of wire as thin as nylon all throughout the gloves they are very secure and comfortable.

Planet Knox haven’t invented Boa Lacing system themselves, they are just using the patent because they feel like it is the best there is. What Planet Knox has invented are the extraordinary Exoskeleton spines. Exoskeleton spines are like sliders with the grip on your main knuckles that pulls your fingers back ever so slightly.

The design is made so that when you hold your brakes with two fingers you don’t have to fight the leather of the gloves that want to pull your fingers back, they stay as they are resulting in relaxation of your hand. Other gloves don’t have that, and you will eventually tire your hands. The other purpose is protection of your hands. They are placed perfectly so that they protect your joints the most. They even protect the back of your hand too.

If you don’t trust this article then maybe you should trust to Biomech gloves wearer, the 11 times TT award winner, Michael Dunlop who probably can recognize true quality when he sees it. If you want to treat yourself with these gloves it will cost you a bit more, but have in mind that when it comes to safety, price should be no object.
