Maybe it's just me, but when I come off a bike, which thankfully hasn't been often so far, it's not my knuckles which hit the asphalt but my palms. Maybe it's because they're all low-speed tumbles - well, two figure speeds, anyway - but the point is that armour on the 'heels' of the hands, in the lower palm area, seems to me a more useful thing than chrome knuckles. I used to have a pair of Furygan gloves which had studded palms, and saved me much skin and soft tissue. But I suppose the problem with studded palms is that nobody can see the butch metal bits while you're riding along with your hands around the twistgrip, can they?
