The Dakar Pros are the perfect middle ground between a full-on road glove and those thin, breezy MX pairs. You know, a dual-sport glove. That's not to say it's perfect. The visor wiper on the left thumb is almost entirely worthless, and the hook-and-loop closures don't always stay together, especially after a few months of use. Likewise, the dye Klim uses for the leather loves to come off and stain your hands after riding through a good rainstorm, even 12 months in. That bit never bothered me so much, as the dye usually wears off after a good scrubbing, but some buyers may find it off-putting. No one likes purple fingers.
