There have been many hybrid MMA gloves in the past few years, but these are the most thoroughly padded and intelligently designed gloves we've seen yet. Evolve-X's new gloves offer an incredible amount of protection for the striker's hands so you can work your Muay Thai and Boxing without compromising your ability to grapple and defend takedowns. Once the sparring hits the mats, you've got finger/hand mobility for submissions and sweeps. But to cut down on eye pokes and abrasions, the 2nd knuckle joint and hammerfist areas are padded.
The dual strap system provides a secure and uniform tightness around the wrist. Even the wrist support has dense padding, ensuring that blocked head kicks don't leave you with a broken hand or wrist. Edges are covered with red contrast piping to prevent unnecessary scratches and abrasions while grappling. And the longer fingers help cut down on unintentional eye pokes. Steve Shepherd and the boys at Evolve-X really covered all the bases with these hybrid MMA gloves. In a league of their own.
