These gloves are comfortable right out of the gate. No break-in period. They have great feeling in the palm and the grippy palm cover is nice to relax your grip on the throttle. A driver pulled a uturn from the shoulder directly in front of me and I collided with the vehicle. These gloves protected my hands and you can clearly see the knox palm protectors did their job. Thanks STG! You got a customer for life. STG puts the time into selecting only the good stuff. And I really appreciate all of the individual product reviews.
