Re: New Glove Recommendation?

I wanted to post here about the recent gloves that I didn't like. Bought a pair of Icon Twenty Niner, from Moto Liberty (Dallas) about 2 weeks ago. On Sunday 6/12, took the first long ride with them. Original short term wearing was positive thoughts. After living with them on the 4 hr. trip outbound, they were bleeding black on the hands, not good. Then on the 4 hr. trip home we hit rain, just enough to get things fairly wet. They were then dripping black and hands were more black. Took them off to dry, next day the little finger was rotated about 90 degrees. Yesterday went to Moto to ask about return policy, he checked with Icon, with receipt they'll send back to Icon for evaluation. One comment the Moto guy stated kind of put me off, 'those aren't rain gloves'. Told him I had no intention of riding in the rain, it just happened. He did say it shouldn't have bled and the little finger was because of riding in rain, I should have kept wearing until dry, so finger wouldn't rotate.

Another observation with these gloves is that the thumb seam lines up with thumb pressure on grips, very annoying.

I've ordered a different pair of gloves from a different vendor, we'll see on the next pair.

Re: New Glove Recommendation?

Ok tried Olympia Gloves Ventor #750, they bleed black. Any suggestions for a gel glove (numb hand problem) that doesn't bleed black or other color dye?

Re: New Glove Recommendation?

I ordered a pair of KLIM induction from Revzilla.

Some of the BMW guys claim they are marvelous.

The Magid gloves referenced earlier just didn't hold up. The pads around the thumb and on the back of the knuckle began coming loose.

For that price, they better be good.

Ride with "no hands", numbness will be greatly reduced.

I know ... kinda pricey at $139

But I've probably spent twice that on multiple pairs of inexpensive gloves searching for a good one.

Re: New Glove Recommendation?

I've been very pleased with every ReV'it! glove I've owned. I finally wore my Dirt gloves out - it took 6 years of daily summer use. The Roadstar is an amazing uninsulated Gore Tex glove. Pricey though. I loved my Alaska winter gloves so much I bought a back up pair used on ebay after they were discontinued. I had to exchange my first pair on Icon Pursuit gloves due to one being smaller than the other. Olympia is okay for the price. I have been impressed by the quality of Dainese gloves but the digits are too short for my hands.

They arrived and I wore them around the house for about 30 minutes.

Initial thoughts were they were too freaking small. I measured my hands at 11 3/8" and according to the KLIM sizing chart I need a 3XL.

But as I wore them, they became more comfortable. Finger length was adequate and the size was OK. I was feeling seams inside the fingers around the middle joint, but that too seemed to work in.

Cut the tags and they are mine, now.

Rode to work and after getting some miles and a bit of sweat on them, they are beginning to feel and fit really nice.

The gel pads in the heel of my hands is perfectly placed to reduce the numbing vibrations.

Fingers and webbing are vented and flow air surprisingly well.

The only con is they only had black, dark gray and white. I was looking for hi-viz, but couldn't find any with gel and I thought had a reasonable chance at fitting

I think I've finally found a pair of gloves ...

Re: New Glove Recommendation?

I bought a pair of Fox Racing Bomber gloves. Snug. Comfy. Airy. Seem well built.

Re: New Glove Recommendation?

The Fox gloves are holding up.

For winter I bought River Road Cheyenne with 70 gram Thinsulate. The internet says they're women's gloves. My hands can't tell. I wore them with Cycle Gear Anti Freeze liners underneath in 39F on the highway. My hands weren't warm, but they weren't cold.
