Dakine Syncline Gloves
Who's this for: Enduro, all-mountain, trail and XC riders looking for a no-nonsense pair of gloves.
Palm style: AX SUEDE DEUCE synthetic suede. This provides a very nice close to the bar feel.
Materials: The Syncline's construction is a moisture wicking, 4-way stretch polyester shell mated to an AX SUEDE DEUCE synthetic suede palm. The Polygiene odour control technology helps the gloves stay fresher smelling a bit longer.
Additional protection: Nope.
Closure: With an adjustable hook and loop tab the gloves are easy to slip on and off.
Touch screen compatible: Yup. You'll be able to scroll around TrailForks while waiting for your friends to catch up.
Sweat wipe: There sure is. Dakine calls it a microfleece nose wipe, but it will work for sweat too.
Pros? The Syncline is a terrific example of how you don't need all kinds of fancy features to make a great pair of gloves. Touch screen compatible so you can answer that call while you are taking in all that serenity.
Cons? These are a straight suede palm with no additional padding or protection. They aren't for riders looking for a super padded pair of gloves.
