Favorite Gloves....

i'm in the market for new gloves...... a pair that are well vented, and still have good protection. Long type.
not too expensive (lower than 250** US)
What's your favorite glove?

If at first you don't succeed, use a hammer instead

i was and still am in the same dillema as you..i tried on a couple of pairs of the teknic speedstar gloves

they have an insane amount of protection on them and from what user comments i ve read they do work well in the summer...the thing is. they are incredibly tight they hurt your hand ...,and i have pretty thin fingers..i couldn't find a pair that fits me and it s a shame because i really like them...hope you have more luck in your find,i am gonna try the violator gloves next week,they re supposed to be a little more relaxed

the problem is that my local shops don't have a good selection to choose from.... mostly Icon and Joe Rocket .

I would love to find a shop that carries some good gloves, that way I could try them on. I'd hate to spend 200 plus and get a ill-fitting glove off of the internet.

Helds are supposed to be the best, but I've never tried them. I have good luck with some of the Frank Thomas and/or Alpinestars gloves, but you really have to try on each pair, even from the same manuf. sizes vary greatly.

I ride with Alpinestars. They might not be the most expensive glove but they fit me just right.

I use the Held Phantoms --- great glove, great protection. They take a little while to break in but once they are broken in they are hard to beat for comfort and protection.

I use the Held Phantoms too and am very happy since they have robust protection.. yet a supple feel on the palm side.. i think it's kangaroo.. but they are more than $250.
