There is a Rider who wants only what is necessary for grip, cockpit protection, and comfort. The HiLine uses a form-fitting strap to firmly place the glove on the hand, eliminating any gaps. Mechanix leather provides extra protection to the palm, without sacrificing “feel” and control of the handlebar.
Whether whipped by brush and branches, or the constant jar of a gravel surface, the HiLine provides a barely-there cushion against the hard ride. The back and front of each finger is drilled for ventilation, to provide for moisture escape when your hands get sweaty. If they get sweaty.

Absolutely love the fit and function of these gloves. Like all of Kitsbows products, the quality is unmatched and expect these gloves to outlast any previous pairs. Be prepared to have blueish hands after several of your initial rides. The dye takes a while to wear off.
The quality of the HiLine is head and shoulders above every other glove I have owned. Supple leather, quality craftsmanship, padding in the right places... details were not missed. I'm looking forward to fall and spring rides- they are a true midweight glove. My only gripe is the sizing feels a little off; the width and thumb fits well but the fingers are half a knuckle too long. I considered exchanging down a size, but I fear they would be too tight in the thumb and width. Every hand is different, and these are just a bit off for my particular hand. It's a minor annoyance but by no means a deal breaker. Highly recommend!
Bought this as a gift and he loved it. Fits well, color is great, and the quality is outstanding. No complaints at all.
Having stopped riding with gloves a few years ago, I decided to try these and am stoked that I did. With fingers that are actually long enough to allow the glove to fit while wrapped around the bars really is a rare feature on most MTB gloves these days.The minimalist palm allows the rider to still feel the bar and not have the hands be to far above the actual bar with too much padding. Great Job Kitsbow! Another well thought out piece of Kit. Great MTB glove to use year round in CO!
I’ve been able to get about 10 rides in and they seem like their going to last. These are a step above all other gloves on the market including moto/mx gloves. Great material & craftsmanship.
