    Glove Suggestions


    Hello everyone Im looking to get some new gloves since my old ones are falling apart and i was wondering what you guys recommend. Im looking to get something that I'll be able to take with me to the track but also use comfortably riding around in day to day. Id say the most I would spend would be $200 but if its cheaper thats better. Looking forward to some good suggestions. If this is the wrong thread to ask this stuff in, sorry.

    Most orgs require a full leather gauntlet style glove.
    The world is essentially your oyster after that.

    Held Phantoms. I picked up a lightly used set a few years ago for like $125. Then did the same thing again a couple years later for a backup when/if these eventually wear out.

    Held Air and Dry if you need it to be waterproof. Essentially its literally a glove with 2 compartments for your hand, and one of them is Gortex. Certainly not a serious track glove but itll pass.

    Held Phantom or Titan. I used my Phantoms for 8 years street + track, 3 crashes and the are still in good shape (~1k mile year on the street last few years). The only problem with them is one of the stingray panels on the palm started to separate due to the 3 slides. Still usable and can be repaired. Helds are $$$ in the states but you can buy them from EU sites a hair above your budget. Linky.

    Also heard good things about the Racer Glove USA products but haven't seen 'em in person. I've had A* and a couple other brands: unfortunately didn't hold up. Buy once, cry once.

    Heroics are also nice. Good gloves that will hold up to a few get-offs like the ones listed above are about $275.
