MaxiCut Gloves are all backed by ATG developed technology such as CUTtech, which means that the gloves are generally far more reliable and resilient than their equivalents on the market. If you've decided to go with MaxiCut, you'll be met with quite a large range and are probably wondering where to head next. To help you make your decision, we've created this comparative blog to lay down the pros and cons of each.

MaxiCut Gloves: What's the Difference?

Our range of cut resistant ATG gloves includes over 10 fantastic pairs of gloves that each offer differing levels of resistance against different things. Some of our MaxiCut Gloves are oil resistant, some water, some have a palm coating and some are super flexible because of their Spandex liner.

For your reference, CUTech refers to cut specific technology, LIQUItech refers to oil and water resistance technology, and AIRtech refers to breathability and flexibility. As you can see all gloves use CUTtech technology, though they offer different levels of cut resistance. Generally, if a glove offers oil and water resistance then a bit of dexterity is compromised, and if a glove doesn't use glass or Dyneema, then protection is compromised.
