As of writing this, these are without a doubt the best gloves I've ever used. They fit snug and feel like a second layer of skin. They also provide a pretty good amount of ventilation so my hands aren't soaking wet by the end of a workout. Best of all, they help cut down on calluses forming while not being too protective so as to cause you to lose that natural grip when lifting. Would definitely recommend.
Talons are engineered to safeguard your hands from the most brutal workouts. From handlebars to barbells, Talons reduce direct friction to protect your hands from tears and blisters. They’re touch-screen friendly, with a seamless palm design that won’t fail you during a WOD. Best of all, our unique palm material is designed to work with chalk – aiding your grip even more.
Our synthetic palm material loves gym chalk – continue to use it as normal, and don’t worry about barbells and rigs caked in the stuff. It’ll make your Talons better.
Sweat Wipe & Silicone Beads
Sweaty during a workout? A microfiber patch on the thumb lets you make quick work of a sweaty forehead. Silicone beading on the palm keeps you on the rings for muscle-ups.
Touch Screen Friendly
We get it. You gotta get that photo on Instagram, start your WOD timer, or take a selfie during a workout. We’ve got you covered – no need to take off your Talons.

Works with Chalk
Tim Swisher - "I used them at the Texas Spartan Beast (13 miles), which was a complete mess after flooding and torrential downpours. They performed quite well in those conditions. Didn't hold water, good grip and comfortable. I've had gloves that only last 2 races and were destroyed, the durability of the Talons are great."

These gloves are very well-made and a quality product. I only wish that they made them in males sizes - the XL gloves that I bought only seem to fit snugly on my (normal) male hands. I did inquire to ROCKTAPE when I returned the LARGE gloves in exchange for the X-LARGE gloves if they had accidentally sent me a pair of female gloves but they told me that they only had one sizing. I have found this issue to be a problem with shirts made in china but this was the first time I have encountered it in gloves made in the USA.
Love the look of these gloves, appear well made. . .however, my hands measure 9" which should be between a large (9" to 10"). However, I can barely squeeze my hand into them and when I do, the knuckle creases are at the wrong position. . .very painful to bend my thumb. Will probably try an XL, but wish I would have ordered an XL . . . especially would have helped today on 17.2
I've tried just about every other type and brand of hand protection available and these are BY FAR the best. I CrossFit/weightlift 4-5x week and I've only had 1 tear in the last 6 months I've been using these and that was my own fault (I got lazy about callus maintenance). I use these for everything: TTB, pull ups, ring rows, KBS, weightlifting. The design is well thought-out. These gloves are well-ventilated so your palms don't get sweaty, the terry cloth "sweat wipe" area is a great addition, they are easy to get on and off, and they break in quickly. They are thin enough not to bunch up and get in the way but tough enough to last through weekly washings and almost daily abuse. For high rep bar work, I would recommend a *light* chalking before putting them on and then chalking the gloves themselves. They are pricey but WORTH IT. Like I said, I've been using and abusing these for six months and only now are they showing signs of wear (small holes in some of the fingers). I bought a second pair for when these bite the dust but I have a feeling it might be awhile yet!
Although I prefer to lift bare-handed, I did give these a go, and if you're looking for a lifting glove these are wonderful. I volunteer on build crew for about a dozen obstacle course races per year, and these have been my go-to glove for those shifts. They function beautifully as protection in the working environment, and their design as a lifting/OCR glove lends itself well to testing out obstacles. I'm still going strong with my first pair over a year later.
I bought my first pair and they worked great for only a month. After that they tore on the top seam and finger seams. Needs better stitch work but the actually performance of the gloves were good.
I gave these gloves a good fair shot, and even after they were replaced under warranty twice, the third pair still ripped after bar and ring work, even with plenty of chalk. I would give Rocktape's warranty 5 stars, but the product is subpar. This inconsistent though as I use their other products (knee caps, rockguards arms and shins, wrist wraps, etc.) and I love the quality and durability. These gloves are just a miss for me.
These Talons are awesome, Great fit and helped a lot with my Grip. I definitely recommend you give them a try.
