    studded vs nonstudded gloves

    When I was a 17 year old squid I chased my Honda in a corner head first without gloves, let me tell ya since then I allways wear gloves. My hands stayed intact but were really sore. Studded or non? a glove should be comfortable first, protect second. if the're not comfy you won't wear them religously so try on quite a few different brands. I've read some of your other threads about gear and can see price is an issue, but you've got the summer to shop for gear so try on as much stuff as you can find to get a grasp of what your dollar buys.

    studded vs nonstudded gloves

    When I crashed a few years back, I had on gloves with the metal studs on the palms. They were terrible! They got so hot from sliding, they heated up and burnt my hands! Just F.Y.I.

    studded vs nonstudded gloves

    Ouch! My studded Held gloves have a layer of Nomex behind the rivets to keep the heat out. I know it's there because I can see it through the holes left by the five rivets that tore out in a lowside a couple years ago

    One other claimed advantage of studded gloves is that because the palms slid rather than grab, they pass less shock back up your arm (less chance of a wrist break etc.).

    studded vs nonstudded gloves

    Never had a problem with non-studded gloves. They're cheaper, and for typical street use they'll fit the bill just fine (IMO). I had a violent crash two years ago that involved relatively high speeds, a car, some pavement, some trees, and some gravel, and I was wearing a pair of el cheapo Olympia gloves. With the exception of a small tear on wunna the fingers, I'd say they held up exceptionally well...
