    Looks real similar to an HO Tail 41. What does the thumb look like?

    Loving the Reflex Supershell with R Style Rear and NRG with CG Fin.

    How do they compare on thickness to the 41 tails? I had a pair of 41 tails I loved and then the next pair I bought seemed to not fit the same. I got some different HOngloves that weren’t Kevlar but they fit great but I blew threw them pretty quick.

    Definitely look worth trying out, but I don't jump with kevlar palms. Do top jumpers prefer Kevlar palms? Are these thinner than most other Kevlar palms?

    @unksskis why not jump with Kevlar?

    Feel more locked in, connected to the handle. Guess in my mind the more you feel the more you're able to react, and I don't want anything slipping while hauling into the ramp. Kevlar to me is for durability, things like slalom where you're re-grabbing the handle more frequently and at different positions, however I don't prefer Kevlar for slalom either. I can be a rare case, that's why it would be interesting to see if/what top jumpers use them. Likely all just personal preference, definitely want to try out the Stealth gloves regardless.

    I have a few rides with the Stealth gloves and so far they are great.

    I really do not do glove reviews but if you are looking for a thinner palmed kevlar glove you are going to love the Stealth.

    I just got a pair and the are very nice. They are similar to 41 tails but fit a bit better.
    The only negative is that they do not have a pull tab down by the wrist. So i removed a pull tab from some old 41 tails and sewed them on to the Stealths, much better.

    Update:

    I have been wearing the same pair of stealth gloves for approximately 200 slalom rides and they are still going strong.

    I have been using mine all summer and they have been great. They could use a small tab on the inside at the wrist to make it easier to put them on but other than that fantastic. Great price as well.

    Used a pair of stealth gloves this season and thought they were great. Held up well and comfortable.

    @MarkM @Horton so If I wear a tail wind 41 size med are stealth gloves sized the same?

    I'm really enjoying mine as well.
    For any Canucks here, they were also the cheapest pro-level glove I could find from any Canadian shop (I bought from Shuswap).

    Any chance Ryan will be offering a non-kevlar version?
  • ReggieOReggieO Posts: 54 Baller

    Hey anybody spot a cyber Monday deal on these gloves? My wife and kids are asking me for Christmas present ideas.
  • KillerKiller Posts: 336 Baller
    @skihart yep. Dodd posted a deal on insta. Have to buy direct I think
  • skihartskihart Posts: 454 Solid Baller
    @Killer thanks man will check it out.
  • skihartskihart Posts: 454 Solid Baller
    Wow that’s a sweet deal! I bought three pair. Surprised more ballers aren’t all over this.
  • WBLskierWBLskier Posts: 431 Baller
    I wear a medium in 41tails. They are very tight in that size which I like. What size would I be in these gloves?
  • skihartskihart Posts: 454 Solid Baller
    @WBLskier if they are the red 41 tails then get the same size in the Stealthglove.
