Another rider was also wearing the same brand of gloves and she traded them in to borrow another pair as she saw the aftermath of how poorly these gloves were designed.
Lesson learned - invest in your riding gear and pay for the high-end stuff. Bilt leather gloves are poorly made and I wouldn't recommend these gloves to ride in the street. I use to own a pair of Dainese Gloves but bought these gloves because they where cheap and needed a new pair for the track. Not enough leather material in the palms, to keep you protected and the leather feels cheaply made...and looking at the tag...made in Pakistan what!?

I rode on them all day and my knuckles were getting sore... felt like the carbon knuckle guard wasn't sitting right. I thought it was fine in the store, but the problem showed up once I was riding. I took a closer look at home and it seems like the knuckle guard is not moving far enough forward when my fist is curled around my grips, so the edge of the guard digs into the top of my knuckles instead of the guard sitting right over my knuckles. I thought the problem might be the size I got (L) so I went back this evening and tried on Medium and XL again. XL is way too large and M felt better, I think because the shorter fingers forced the knuckle guard to sit forward more. CycleGear exchanged them and I rode home again on the M size gloves... the left hand felt perfect but there was too much pressure on my right hand knuckles while riding. The guys at CycleGear are awesome and said it would be fine to come back again if these aren't right, and I think I'm going to have to make another exchange. I tried on a lot of gloves and many with hard knuckle guards like these had a similar problem, so it might be that my hands are just an odd shape.
However, I do like the style and design of the gloves. They have no lining like the description says, but they are soft and comfortable inside. There IS a bit of lining on the inside of the carbon knuckle guard, but that's it (and it's good that it's there). Obviously I can't say much about durability after 1 day, but if they fit me (make sure they fit well!!) I would definitely be keeping them.
PROS: Feels good
CONS: Knuckle guard position
So I exchanged for a larger size. Which fits fine in the hands but the fingers are now 1/2 inch too long... I have never had a problem with regular gloves before.
For the price (if you got them 1/2 off) I figured I'd give them a shot. If I had to do it all over again, I'd go with a more quality glove.
Lets see how long these last...
PROS: Design, value, Fit
PROS: Carbon fiber finish, Protected knuckle
CONS: Black dye bleeds, Fair stitch work, Longer to put on, Not enough padded leather
