AXS Review: Triple 8′s Downhill Slide Gloves
Here at AXS Gear we recently got to try out Triple 8′s Downhill Slide Gloves. The gloves come standard with replaceable PU palm puck, thumb puck, and finger bar. All sliders are replaceable and are available for purchase separately. The pucks attach securely to the Velcro on the gloves with very little to no chance of falling off while riding. The gloves are made of top grain leather with tear resistant Kevlar finger tips that protect against abrasion and tearing. The one thing I find with some other gloves is that my flexibility in my fingers is restricted by the thickness of the leather, however with triple 8′s gloves I have much more flexibility and can actually pick up my keys with them on. They feature a heavy-duty, wrap around Velcro® wrist strap that ensure a perfect fit and an EZ pull-on loop that makes it easy to pull on or off these gloves.
These gloves are light, flexible and fit nicely provided you purchase the right size for your hands, and are extremely durable. Triple 8 designs their gloves and other protective gear to be top of the line and provide the most protection and these gloves are no exception. So if your looking for some higher end gloves for those crazy slides I would recommend Triple 8′s Downhill Slide Gloves.
