Finally a pair of gloves that allow you to really let your hands go while training MMA stand-up. The new Evolve-X gloves offer an incredible amount of protection for the striker's hands so you can work your Muay Thai and Boxing without compromising your ability to grapple and defend takedowns. Once the sparring hits the mats, you've got ample finger/hand mobility as well as padding over the knuckles and sides (great for those of you who love your hammerfists). 1.75" knuckle padding.
The dual strap system provides a secure and uniform tightness around the wrist. Even the wrist support has dense padding, ensuring that blocked head kicks don't leave you with a broken hand or wrist. Edges are covered with red contrast piping to prevent unnecessary scratches and abrasions while grappling. And the longer fingers help cut down on unintentional eye pokes. Steve Shepherd and the boys at Evolve-X really covered all the bases with these hybrid MMA gloves. In a league of their own.
Genuine leather construction.
Sizing:Measure the circumference of your knuckles (include handwraps if you'll be using them under the gloves) and compare to the following:14oz: 7"-8"16oz: 8"-8.75"
I own two pairs of the armorfit brand which was technically the first generation to these and I love them. I spoke with steve shepard the owner and he had sent me a few demonstration videos and early pictures before the release of this generation. They are great for light sparring for mma standup/ground and pound. I think they normally run $60 or more. It's nice because of the extra padding for hammerfist and ridgehand. Also it covers the second set of knuckles which is excelent. Because if you have ever spared with regular mma gloves you always catch you buddy with the exposed knuckles and that's just not cool. I would defiantly recommend these!
I like this look. Wish I could get them
