Glove Lifespan and Cleaning tips
I have Moto GP Nitrous Gloves and like them, but I am concerned about how long I should use them before buying a new pair. I have had them for one season and in that time have worn them while putting 6000 miles on the bikes I've ridden. The white palms have turned black and they get really stiff after long rides. Last one we did last weeked as just shy of 600 miles and they were stiff afterwards.
What is the usual lifespan of full leather gauntlet gloves before they tear resistance would go down?
What cleaning tips does anyone have? I use leather cleaner and rub it in after riding long trips and occasionally as maintenence. I have heard of some vinegar solution that pulls out the salt from sweating but don't know who uses that. What part vinegar and what part water? Will my gloves smell like vinegar afterwards?
Is it wise to just buy new gloves each season since they only cost like $70-$100 dollars? Safety is #1 goal to me.
