Mechanix Wear M-Pact gloves


#1


In my search for a replacement to my 10+ year old Performance gel gloves I searched and read some reviews before ordering these.

The Mechanix Wear M-Pact gloves look good and review well. They offer plenty of knuckle protection, ventilation and articulation. While they do offer padding on the palm they don’t have it where I need it.

Maybe it’s my riding style combined with my bike setup but I need some cushion right by the thumb and index finger. I also don’t remember the last time I bashed my knuckles so the protection is wasted on my hands.

These are going back.

They look hot…as in sweaty

Also too much padding on the palm which will give the feeling your not gripping tight enough which will force you to grip tighter…Bad!

Yes and no, everyone is a bit different. For me, it’s how I grip and probably because my steering tube is a little short. I’m going to rectify the latter when I get a new fork and maybe that will change how I grip. Stay tuned.
