I'm in the market for a new pair of gloves ASAP. (I sold my tour master scarabs to a friend who doesnt wear much gear, if any, and I worry about him, so when he said he liked my gloves i sold them to him immediately so that he'd be slightly safer.) Anyway, when I sold my gloves I thought I'd just get a new pair of scarabs because they're pretty nice gloves, carbon fiber protection in knuckles fingers and wrists, they're well vented which is important in Florida. I recently read (in total control by lee parks) that carbon fiber shatters on impact creating lots of reinforced carbon splinters that can easily be driven into your hands in a crash. Is this true, it seems logical (or does lee parks just want to sell his own brand of gloves)? have any studies been done to see if carbon gloves do this? If it is true whats a reasonable alternative? I was thinking Icon TiMax gloves have tons of titanium and that would be better but they seem like they'd be very hot. Are there any well vented gloves that also cover the wrist, don't use carbon fiber, and offer quality protection at a reasonable price?
