Icon Anthem 2 Gloves
Heroes and cowards both feel the same thing: fear. Heroes push their limits, take chances, and use fear as a tool. They need gear that will back them up. Enter the Anthem 2 glove. Its mesh backhand delivers breathability also, creating a snug and contoured fit. The seamless one-piece Ax Laredo™ palm provides durability while eliminating seams. The D3O® knuckle insert adds reinforcement without adding bulk, while the revised wrist closure makes egress and ingress an intuitive experience.

Our Two Cents
The Icon Anthem 2 gloves are a great short cuff style with some knuckle protection.
The Anthem 2 is another variation of Icon’s best selling glove stylings : A simple chassis with a short cuff and D3O knuckle armor. Icon has several gloves like this and there is one reason, they are popular! It’s almost a bare bones glove, and it feels like it is bare bones, but you get durability from their Ax Laredo synthetic palm and the most comfortable and dependable armor on the market in the knuckle. D3O is great in any garment, but in gloves it really shines. The flexibility of the D3O makes it a comfortable choice, and the performance of D3O on impact is hard to beat.
The back hand is full mesh so it flows plenty of air. The neoprene cuff has a hook and loop strap closure to secure the gloves on your hand. These gloves should perform well for just about any riding style if you want a lightweight summer glove that offers standard protection. :: Mike, 01/05/2022
