    when you are going to post, next to post reply button should be a button to click that says upload a file. click that and you can upload your images.

    The gloves look like nice quality which I never doubted

    it was the picture below. I have never seen a pair of gloves by any brand bend or make your wrist crooked like that.

    he tried to clarify that in both pictures, the user (skeletor) is attempting to bend his/her/its wrist to the outside. The highlighted lines on the x-factor gloves shows the support systems strategically placed in order to prevent the glove bending that way. apparently, most wrist injuries occur when contact is made during sparring /training and the wrist bends that way. The X-factor glove supposedly has much better support.

    As far as the whole X thing... I think there's definitely something to it. I'm never been the biggest proponent of tech, but the X thing makes sense since that's the basis for all of my handwraps.

    i see, now it makes sense, i totally misread it. I didnt watch the video just skimmed through it. I am not patient enough to listen to a 20 minute conversation.

    Do you plan to expand the line beyond sparring gloves? It would be interesting to see this philosophy applied to bag gloves, headgear, mitts/pads, etc.

    He produced so much leverage. It was fun and horrible at the same time.

    We plan to expand on to other equipment (shin guards, knee pads, elbow pads, head gear are in the testing process). I want to focus on the fundamental benefits. We will have a very basic menu. What I mean by that is we will not have 10 different gloves with 10 different colors schemes. Our focus is to bring technologies with purpose.

    I got an email from ONX last week, I should see my gloves within a few weeks! Mr. Wittman explained that they are shipped to him, he then inspects, weighs, serializes, and attaches the logos before sending them my way. I'd guess I'll have them mid July, I'll put some pictures up for yous guys.

    Hey guys, the ONX gloves arrived, I have NOT used them yet, but here are a couple pictures. The one I have a hair dryer shoved in the glove, there are instructions to heat form the interior of the gloves. They form to your hand and you can even feel little divets for your fingers after the forming, pretty wild! I will say you could nurse a broken wrist with these gloves, I've never had anything as snug on my wrists. the leather is really nice and the craftsmanship might be the best I've seen.
    I'll post a few more in a day or two after I've gotten to play with them!

    Wow, that's pretty cool. Looking forward to the updates. It would be nice if they had lace-ups.
