Decent quality, but too small. – Probiker Motocycle Racing Gloves - XL (Pair) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
They're cheap, offering a bit of protection for mountain biking/dirt biking. The build quality looks to be of decent quality. Comfortable, other than the size issue which I have noted below.
Cons:
Unfortunately, they're too small. I have average size "European" hands, but the hard plastic over the knuckles is not wide enough leading to some irritation of the knuckles. Unfortunately, this (XL) is the only size on offer at the moment. I'm considering just removing the knuckle protection. The metal insert above the wrist 'pro-biker racing equipment' looks a bit cheesy, though some people may like it.
Other:
I don't think these are protective enough for riding a motorcycle on the road.
Bottomline:
If you have small hands and want some cheap protective gloves for mountain biking, then get them
