    Re: ISO New Gloves, need help...


    The nicest pair of street gloves I've ever owned is a pair of Heroic shorties. I love those gloves and have worn the living shit out of them. Worst part is they are maybe 1/2 size too big. I bought these at NHMS on a whim one day. One of the nicest gear buys I've ever made.

    Most spendy track / race gloves I've ever bought were a pair of A-stars GP plus with the pinky and ring fingers sewn together. I am underwhelmed. They should be nicer for the $ I think. Honestly not that much nicer than the cheapie Tourmaster gauntlets. I've had several pair of their gloves over the years and I think they are underrated. Roo skin, although with plastic slider and cuff reinforcements. I have raced (and crashed) in those gloves for years with great success.

They feel much more supple than the Helds, but for some reason the armor on the cuff has always seemed awkward to me, especially if I put it over my jacket/leathers.

    Held Phantoms. Held Akiras as back ups. Crashed in both but you couldn't tell by looking at them. So Held.

    Maybe my fingers are oddly sized but I've had a pair of Phantoms for a number of years and they are my favorite gloves to wear whenever I go for a ride.

    Also love Racer gloves. Can't go wrong with them and the warranty/product support is insanely good. I have the two top end ones, high racer and high speed. Both have held up to multiple crashes, I've restitched the fingers on my high racers, and have literally crashed the same glove at least 7x in road race and supermoto. I still wear them for supermoto and wear my high speeds for road race. They also fit amazing and have incredible feel with the kangaroo palms.

    Can anyone provide a suggestion based on that?

    How are Held gloves?

    I notice a common theme here when discussing Held related to the fit & specifically in the fingers, and perhaps you all realize this already, but I haven't heard anyone mention it yet.

    In many (but not all) styles & only in certain sizes, Held offers 3 different length finger sizes, which should really help customize the fit. However this may also contributing to the "Ill fit" many mention if you didn't realize you were trying a (9)Lrg-Regular VS (K9)Lrg-Short VS (L9)Lrg-Long.

    KANGAROO HIDE LEATHER

    Many of the existing 48 species of kangaroo are protected. However the unchecked reproduction of the largest breed(called “marcropus giganteus”), has become a big problem and culling is therefore allowed under the supervision of the Australian government. Our kangaroo leather is with a special coloration absolutely color-fast and with it‘s special tanning extremely resistant against humidity and sweat.

    Normal leather becomes hard and crumbly and shrinks when getting wet or via sweat. Kangaroos only sweat through their tail and tongue, so there are no pores in their hide which is good for the structure of fiber. While the structure of cow leather gets loose, the structure of kangaroo leather stays fixed. Additionally, the fiber structure of kangaroo leather is more intense geared than the structure of cow leather.
    Just my $0.02, I have 2 pair of Held I like, but I also have other brands that also work....

    Good to know.

    Miles had a pair at the track that I tried on, but don't remember what sub-size they were. I also don't remember Miles mentioning that there were 3 different fitments for each size.

    Gloves might be the fit-sensitive gear for which it makes the most sense to buy over the internet. I've yet to walk into any shop that stocks a variety of high-end race gloves, and those that stock race gloves at all rarely seem to have all the fits in stock.

    For the record, my comment was tongue-in-cheek. I have normal fingers and both pairs of my Helds fit just fine.

    I think it's only on a few models.

    Seacoast did not have Phantoms to try on.
    However the other held were okay, but still long in the fingers and did not have the other sizes like short.

    So I am still just riding around in my motorcross gloves
    The last few days have been so nice!

    Re: ISO New Gloves, need help...

    I'm gonna hijack this if it's okay.

    I need new gloves. I had to toss my short cuff gloves after wearing through the palm. I have full gauntlet Handroids and I don't mind wearing them to get on the highway and for longer rides. But getting into them with the tight wrist opening is like trying to stuff a sausage casing.

    I keep going back and forth between some high protection short cuff gloves and another pair of full gauntlet. If I do the short cuff I'm narrowing it down to the Five SF-1 or the Dianese 4 stroke 2.

    My question is, do you guys have any recommendations for a full gauntlet that's quick on and off? Something you would wear to run errands in? I don't mind having to do a wrist closure but having to dance and shimmy around just to get gloves on gets old for commuting and errands and such.

    There is a cycle gear near me and as you'd expect, they do not carry anything of real value.

    I picked up some dianese carbon 3 short gloves today. I wasn't real impressed with them for the price but given that they're worlds better than a pair of sedici or other "house brand" from CG I gave them a shot. I have a feeling ill end up getting a different pair of one of the better names (racer, held, heroic) but for now they're fine. Better than yanking on full gauntlets each time I stop.
