    Bought a pair of these early this year and noticed the microfiber layer on left hand had worn through to the leather below. Returned them to dealer who posted them back to Knox.
    Knox noted the worn panel but replied that the gloves are 'still good to use' and posted them back!
    After only 2k miles use and bearing in mind the cost of these gloves!
    I am now considering my next course of action but wondered if anyone else has had similar problems?

    Just checked mine now (1000 miles ) and they're ok. Poor response fron Knox for a glove that's £160. Citizens advice ?

    Not a good reply from Knox. Perhaps you should take them to Motorcycle Live if your going and confront them on the stand?
    I bought a pair last year and they are still fine, sorry to hear you got a dud pair

    I had a pair when they first came out. Wore them for about 8 weeks and the stitching fall apart on 2 fingers. Ane why I would not buy another knox glove again. I know many others had the issue.
    Got my money back and bought a different make. Been using Dainese gloves for 4 years and love the pairs I've had

    for the edit mine went just like spareparts on this thread
    http://ducatiforum.co.uk/threads/knox-handroid-review.2304/

    the only difference was I did not crash in mine

    If you have a google you will find loads of issues about them in the past. Maybe that's changed but I lost confidence in them myself

    they fixed the issue with the 1st gen of the gloves.

    shame you cant google how many happy customers they have ;)

    you could always go down the held route (it's what I'm using now) now they are a very very good glove,but at over 200 quid aint cheap

    Not a fan TBH, I had 2 pairs both had issues, but this was a couple of years ago, maybe they are better now ?

    Mind have been pulled about crashed in thrown about , used as kneeling pads , gloves for exhausts etc proper abused and they are still in good shape. Sometimes it's luck of the draw and I'm no way lucky

    Good news. Aaron at Knox is replacing the gloves the same day after I resent them back. Great service from Knox, just hope the replacement pair are more durable and my old pair 'one off's'.
