Knuckle Savers

The Good:

Lightweight, comfortable.

The Bad:

They looked a little odd to me at first.

Overall Review:

Initial Impressions

I thought these gloves looked goofy the first time I saw them in person. The knuckle pad is pretty substantial. I also thought that they were overkill since I have only smashed my hands a few times over the years. I got to test them for a day and that changed my mind.

Function

These gloves are a pull on style with no velcro straps to wear out. They are made of a comfortable form fitting material that feels like another layer of skin. There is no padding on the palm of the hand, only on the knuckles. They are similar to other ultra thin gloves that let you feel like nothing is between you and the handlebar. The tacky white pads on the index and middle finger are nice for control on the brakes. I initially thought the pad would be bulky and uncomfortable. POC’s kneepads

Function

 These gloves are a pull on style with no velcro straps to wear out.  They are made of a comfortable form fitting material that feels like another layer of skin.  There is no padding on the palm of the hand, only on the knuckles.  They are similar to other ultra thin gloves that let you feel like nothing is between you and the handlebar.  The tacky white pads on the index and middle finger are nice for control on the brakes.  I initially thought the pad would be bulky and uncomfortable.  POC’s kneepads are only ok comfortable for me, and since this is made of the same VPD material, I thought it would irritate my knuckles.  I was wrong about that,  The VPD pad conformed to my hand really well through my whole range of motion.  It was especially comfortable while wrapped around the bar.  The reason I no longer think this is overkill is the way the glove disappears on the hand.  The added protection doesn’t create discomfort.

Durability

POC has developed a reputation for well made, long lasting products.  These gloves are no exception.  POC added a leather panel between the thumb and index finger where most of the wear occurs on gloves.  I cannot comment on long term durability, but the stitching and materials seemed like the typical POC quality that has worked for me in the past.

Bottom Line

The POC Resistance Pro Enduro glove isn’t as cheap as other options, but the added knuckle protection may make a crash much less of a big deal for you one day.  You only have one pair of hands, which makes buying this one pair of gloves a good idea.
