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.

Sizing Information:



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."

Used the Talons for 6 different wods, including pullups, older dumbbells, barbell movements, kb swings, and the ever-popular burpees. As compared to other gloves, there is no seam where a barbell hits the thumbs doing cleans/front rack moves. That is awesome and well thought out. I have used and abused them so far and looks like they will be holding up for awhile. Only caution is in sizing - I should have gotten XL for my 9' hands instead of L. I think if they come apart down the road, it will be from sizing not wods. Great product!

great protector

Talon Gloves

Written by Don Galka on 15th Sep 2016

I have been a competitive athlete and olympic lifter, so i have had a lot of years lifting. Recently i was researching gloves and recieved an email from RockTape advertising their gloves. Impressed with what i read, i decided to order a pair of Talons. I only recieved them this week, but as far as ergonomics and fit - very impressed. We will see how they hold up, but really like what they are. Best regards, Don

best gloves ever

Talons are awesome! But, make sure you buy them larger than expected. I usually wear mediums or large size, these I need X-Large.

I use my talons in the fitness center. They aren't too tight or too loose, very comfortable. The gloves I used before in the fitness center, became stretched out, no support. I will soon try them when I ride my bike. These talons are wonderful.

A little tighter than I expected. I was expecting a stickier grip.

Great glove but small on size

I had to get one size bigger. Once corrected they are great
