Level with biomex gloves
 
Hello All,

Planning on picking up a pair of level w/ bioxmex protection gloves for boarding. They seem to have tons of choices. I tried contacting level directly but no response in terms of different options.

My question is: Does anyone have any pictures of the actual gloves or any opinions because I am worried as to the bulkiness of the gloves and how they actually fit.

Thanks,
Russ.

Go to shop. Try on gloves. Buy.

Be happy that you have some great gloves, support your local shop.

Some amazing pictures hard to find!

And of course this video here is even harder to find!

on how they fit: they use the standard glove sizes pretty accurately. I measured my hand, then ordered online and the fit was perfect.
on bulkyness: they don't feel bulky to me at all. Especially not when used without the liner which you only need when it gets really cold. Gore-tex is warm!

Yea, thanks for that awesome response brah! I guess my question wasn't clear enough...I was implying that I wanted to see how bulky they were, hence the pictures related to the fit, not just pictures.

Thanks elstinky. You answered my question.

they fit tight, which makes sense for a protective glove. Love my Super Pipe Pro. Really good riding tools.

I've got the Halfpipes and they aren't bulky at all. Unless someone knew they would never guess they have guards in them. Great gloves. I have used them 5 times and they have no signs of wear past the perfectness being gone. I never notice the guard while riding and almost never while doing anything else. The have already saved my wrist at least once. I hit hard enough that the bio-mex strap put marks in the back of my hand and felt no pain in my chronicly injured wrist. It took me two days to figure out where the marks had come from.

I got some for my son. He is 11 and a very aggressive rider. He loves them. They are no more bulky then any dakine, Burton or spider gloves we have. I plan to buy them for my wife and I too.

Found the fly for around $75 in a local store. http://www.sielok.hu/afotok/snowboar...00_fly-red.jpg this combo. I can't believe it since everything is usually more expensive than the US. The guard itself is a bit different, it has a strap that goes around the 4 fingers and another one for the thumb. Is this the 2011 thing? I dont like the color but i do like the price. Unfortunately they dont have the half pipes and im still thinking if i should order them from xsports protective. Maybe the mitt version.

I swear by them in regards to protection. However if you fall on top of your wrist, like I did and get my wrist caught between my body and icy surface .. your wrist breaks.

Make sure you get the gore-tex. mine gets wet. Im going to take out the bio-mex into a different glove.
