Why you like DGEAROG and our gloves
I’ve worn these gloves for 2 full race seasons. They perform amazingly on any obstacle that involves wet & mud. A muddy rope on an inverted wall will crush a racer but with these gloves on... I’m up quickly! Any rope climb... no need to use my feet on the way down.. I just slide right down... anything that helps increase my speed is clutch!
