Major difference.

A-Stars SMX gloves use real CF for their knuckles, the leather is also thicker.
Fox Bomber gloves use injected molded plastic for the knuckles.

Fox makes great gloves. I have had about 10 pairs, but used them all for MX. For the guys wanting some protection but not wanting to spend any money, the Fox gloves are a decent pair.

the problem w/ MX gloves is that they shred when they get on pavement, i've torn a few pair back when i had my quad. Now Shift (sister company to fox) makes street gear, i had their gloves on when i recently wrecked at over 100+ & they didn't even get close to the second layer of protection, check the link for the pair that i had

I have some Icons that have the CF knuckles and look similar to the A* SMX but they are leather. The SMXs aren't. A little bulky for the summer so I plan on picking up a pair of the A*s.
