What is magical about these gloves?  Other than the price, that is.

Don't know that it's magical - Privateer said "Mythical", because they were a long time coming...

They don't look very protective, and that price, wtf?!  Honestly, they should market those in Golf magazine cause they look more suitable for tee time than for track time.

If they want to donate a pair for evaluation, I'd be all for that! The price is about what you would pay for a good full gauntlet race glove so hopefully the glove lives up to their technical specifications. They almost sound like you're getting a "manicure in a glove".  ;)

this article from a couple years ago tells the story pretty well:

IW: How do they work?

JDR: Three ways. First: there's a top hand impact protector. This is where any similarities to traditional gloves end. Ours articulates along with the rider's hand to account for topographical differences from person to person. Design wise, it means we don't have to add bulky stretch panels to prevent the fabric pulling forward when you close your fist.

Second: we implemented a curved "palm bridge" that's both an impact protector and slider for the palm. This not only provides true impact protection for the scaphoid [An easily broken, but hard-to-heal bone at the base of the palm — Ed.] but also causes the hand to slide out during a fall. The idea is to not land flat on your hands in the first place. If you can decentralize the load as quickly as possible, you stand a substantially better chance of avoiding injury or speeding recovery. There's other gloves on the market with hand sliders, but they're limited to helping the hands slide out and not designed to take impacts.

Third: there's the abrasion and friction layers underneath. If there's one feature that really sets us apart, this is it. Most gloves fail CE certification due to the harsh and unforgiving nature of the abrasion testing. There's a work glove abrasion test — which most glove manufacturers use to achieve the "CE" label — and a motorcycle glove abrasion test, which is much, much harder to pass.

I don't think this is true:

 *CE body will certify only after product has begun production and is in store shelves, we will provide updates as the process continues.



The price isn't THAT wonky. My dainese EVOs cost a bit less.
