    Recommend me a short glove

    my Joe Rocket SuperMoto gloves have had a good 5 seasons, but are falling apart.
    I want another set of short gloves for street riding.
    I'm not really liking the look of the new SuperMoto 2.0 gloves

    thanks

    I like Speed & Strength's short gloves... they are pretty durable for the price, and there is a good range of colors/styles. Check sportbiketrackgear.com.

    I've had these for about a year and a half and they are holding up great.

    I have the old model icon glove, the merc glove. Won't be getting the new one until next year so I can't tell you. I just liked the quality.

    I'd recommend wearing gauntlets. Plenty of breathability, great protection, and durabilty for decades.

    Those Weise Daytona's are nice gloves. Cow and Kangaroo leather in the palms and armor on the knuckles.

    Re: Recommend me a short glove

    I've been doing a lot of research for some shorties. I wanted something for hot summer riding. I went with Shift Hybrid X. Neoprene top with knuckle protectors, Great airflow, leather palm....and because I like odd colors, I picked them up for $11 shipped. I should be getting them next week...I'll let you know how they are....

    Otherwise, I am looking at A*'s SMX-2 or 3 Air for anything under 85 degrees.

    Re: Recommend me a short glove

    Just ordered these:



    I'll have them in a few days and let you know! D3O armor in the knuckles, elastic stitching, etc. I had the icon superduty for 4-ish seasons and they did pretty well, but are just getting ratty.

    Note: these are just my around-town warm-weather gloves. I have proper gauntlets for normal riding.

    Rev It Comet gloves -- best I ever had -- got them at Seacoast Sport Cycle so I was able to try them on, grab some bars, pay and wear them out the door. Got the black/red.

    Re: Recommend me a short glove

    I have teknic Chicane short gloves and I love them. Come just to the wrist, good articulation around the knuckles, hard protector, and have pretty good ventilation.

    i actually just talked to Todd at Heroic. he has a short glove, but it's not on the website yet. He'll be at Loudon for the next LRRS round. Hopefully i'll go home with a new set of gloves.
