I have worn these gloves on two trips now and am really liking them.  They're very comfortable, grip well, are durable, safe and simply feel good.  The wrists are super comfortable and easy to slide on and stay put.  The embossed logo on the wrist and the "Raiden" branding, combined with their Arakis jersey kind of make me feel like some kind of new Marvel super hero or something, but like cool and not I-live-in-my-moms-basement nerdy kind of way.  "I am Arakis!  I come to fight evil and shred on big adventure bikes!"

 

You typically will wear two different gloves and then stop to change them when you hit the dirt and then again getting back on the street, right?  You don't?  Yeah me neither :)  This is essentially what ICON Raiden has done with this glove is to give you a glove that is safe to wear on the street (dirt gloves are NOT) yet one that is also breathable off-road (street gloves AREN'T).  The one piece leather palm side is done this way to eliminate seams that could tear.

 

You're also getting D30 armor in the knuckles, something I appreciate when whacking the occasional twig.

 

Another cool feature is that the index finger has a special grip coating that is smartphone and gps-friendly.  Who wants to have to take their glove off every time to use their phone?  I don't.

 

$35 is a great value too.  Hard to beat.
