Fox Racing Stealth Bomber Gloves $64.90
Handy and incognito.
Blow up rides all over the North Shore while your hands stay protected by the Fox Racing Men's Stealth Bomber Glove. Impact protection on the knuckles takes the brutality out of nasty falls, and the suede palms minimize the potential of gnarly road rash. Mellow rides or hairy rollers, the suede thumb and silicone detailing on the palm side of the fingers locks your grip on the handlebars. A single layer of plush, rugged sheepskin on the palms absorbs vibration so you can still have a "good hand" when it comes time to relax later that night.

What community has to say
good sturdy gloves
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
These are good gloves, high quality leather. They are a bit narrow to size on the fingers but length is correct. Perfect for my skinny fingers. One of the gloves' heel protection pads had a sharp edge on it, but careful trimming rounded it off. I use these on my motorcycle. Perfect balance of protection and control for me.
XL is WAY too small
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
I have two other pair of Fox gloves in XL. They fit great. I have tried on other models and they also fit well. These are marked XL but are either a Child's or maybe Women's XL. They don't begin to fit a Man's large hands. I thought maybe Backcountry.com had a mis-marked pair so after returning these I tried on a pair at Rock & Road. Same mini size and not marked other than XL. Clearly this is a manufacture's error and this model needs to be in a clearance rounder where someone can get their little hands-on them.
Great, but not Awesome
Using the size chart, I ordered XL instead of my usual L. The fingers are a tad bit long while my hands still squeeze to get them on. The knuckle and palm fit has relaxed a bit from stretch and my ridiculous sweating, but they were very comfortable at first and airflow is great- much better than I expected.
The first thing I noticed was how nice the materials are. They feel nice on the hand and have held up so-so- wearing a little better than my previous gloves did where there is most contact. My trails are tight, and the gloves have mostly protected my hands from cuts and scrapes during mid-air tree tags. After about two months of getting soaked with sweat, the leather is stiff and seems prone to tiny holes just below the thumb. I just ripped mine after a harder tree strike with new wider bars. It tore the side of my index finger... and busted that second joint knuckle. The gloves kept me from worse damage surely. So, I'm a little impressed, but I have one big issue.
The suede thumb's black dye stains my hands! It takes a really hot and hard scrub and a day or so to get all of it off. After the ride, though, a 1/4 of my hand is black!
I'll be trying the double layered Fox Bombers next just to see if the staining is lessened and if the wearing will be even less.
These gloves are really nice. Top notch materials and construction. That said, the fit is way off. I've been riding with large Fox Digit gloves. Like most reviewers of Fox gloves, I had to go up one size when I started wearing Fox gloves. I ordered a large in the Fox Stealth Bomber thinking the fit would be close, if not the same as my other Fox gloves; however, the large Stealth Bomber wasn't even close. I could barely get my hands in them and the fingers were far too skinny even for my skinny fingers (size 9 ring finger.) Even if the XL fit my hands, I'm afraid the wrists would be mid way up my forearm based on the large. Had to return for a refund and will stick to my old Digits.
pretty bomber. light but yet durable.
