God, these are good gloves. The ever-comfy Clarino palm offers bags of feel coupled with long-haul grip and comfort. There are silicone grip sections on the fingertips, to ensure accurate inputs when it gets wet and there’s subtle yet useful padding around the knuckles.
There’s also a minimal Velcro cuff strap to keep things in place and the thumb gets a soft snot-wipe surface. We’ve put them through the wringer both in terms of crashing and the washing machine and they’ve come up tear, bobble and fade-free. There are three colour schemes to choose from, too.
The Digits are fantastic all-rounders that’d be as at home on the front row of an enduro starting grid as they would razzing a trail centre or for all but the toughest of downhill business. All this for under £30?! Sound!
