2002 version of the Teknic xcelerator. I purchased them in Feb. 2003
I average 3-4 multi-day events per year in LSR and used them about 3-4 more days a year, so they weren't used a whole bunch in any single year but they made it 10 seasons.
This time of year, after race season, the funds do run low. However, I do need to pick up a set this fall so I can break them in and not worry about them next year. My hands are actually between sizes, L and XL. Larges work fine, If I can break them in ... XL, which is the size of street set, gets too loose after awhile.
Yes, gloves are cheaper and a better alternative to hand surgery, but at the speeds I go if I get off the bike, there would be a LOT of other things I would be worrying about. Sometimes you can shop around and get high quality stuff without breaking the bank.
