Knox Handroid Gloves

Anyone have these? I tried them on at the motorcycle show in British Columbia last weekend and they seemed very comfortable, right off the bat. I felt like the terminator with them on. They have these cord like things that extend and retract as you make a fist! They also have a little simpler version without the alien stuff on them.

Yes I just got the Handroids...love them I also got a pair of Alpinestars GP techs which will be my track gloves but the Handroids are my dedicated street gloves.

True to size except I can't seem to find any gloves that fit my pinky all seem just a bit too long, other than that perfect fit.

I've heard very good things about the handroids. Only negative (from two sources) is apparently the little plastic shield thingy over the knuckles comes off too easily. Other than that just positive. Have not heard about their crash worthiness though.

The GP Tech, Handroid and Held Phantoms were all on the short list about a year ago. I ended up with a great deal on a barely used set of Phantoms and I couldn't be happier. They already survived a 90mph lowside and show no signs of distress other than a little wear here and there.

I think you'll be happy with the Handroids if you go that route.

I really like the closure system on them. They fit me well too. For comparison, they fit and feel like TaiChi's. Seem to be a quality product, and I would love to have a pair. The lesser model is called the Biomech.

Yeah, I really like the wrist cuff closure! I'm surpirised glove manufacturers haven't done that sooner. I have a pair of Held (not sure which model) now, but I might end up with these at some point in the future.
