Non-Track Gloves

What do you guys use for street riding for gloves and why? I am wearing out most of mine and looking for fresh blood.

I have these for the track and they are over-kill for sport touring or daily riding:

Crashing on the street and crashing on the track doesn't make much of a difference to your hands I bet. Now that I have gauntlet's I can't imagine going back to wearing street gloves.

I wear these for both

http://www.kneedraggers.com/details/...s--614906.html

I have a shortie glove from Icon, I think it's the original Hooligan glove. It was pretty good, but I don't want to have my track gloves be uncomfortable. This year I decided to wear the gauntlet gloves full time.

I am trying to preserve my track stuff as separate items as much as I can. I am keeping them well-maintained and set aside specifically for track use as I don't want the wear-and-tear of daily riding to ruin them. It's not the cheaper way to go, but it ensures that my gear is always ready for use on the track where I am going to be much more aggressive.

So buy a second pair of gauntlets specifically for street. Try out a different brand/style. Plus, you can have them for backup for track. You have back up bikes, might as well have backup gear, right?

That's why I am asking what people use so I can look into them. There are thousands, but personal recommendations on daily use are far more valuable than internet shopping and trying them on

I dig those Dainese. They look less bulky than the A* but still are gauntlet type which I like. Cheaper than the A* too...

Ohhh gotchya! I thought you wanted recommendations for specific street style gloves (the shorter ones). My bad.

trhey are slightly less bulky, and easily the most comfy gloves I've ever tried on. Italian leather is the sheeeit.
Haven't crash tested them yet though. The A*, OTOH I can vouch for 150% when the leather meets the asphalt.

Thanks Rob. I am getting pricing as we speak. I think I will try them and maybe TiMax Robs240 recommended. Thanks all!

The Lee Parks Gloves are great...... if you chose a "touring" glove it has
to have a positive retention strap, gloves do no good if they come off.


Personally, I demote my track gloves as they start to get too worn for the track,
by that time they are comfy as street gloves.

Waoh, that Lee Parks stuff looks really, really well made! And they carry some other decent products like the Wiki helMOTs. I'd never heard of them before...I wonder how well those deerskin gloves breathe though.

I'm interested in this thread because my Icon gloves are crap, but they breathe well which I apprecaite over long, hot summer rides. I've got other gloves, but they were cheap fun ones...I think it's time I invest in a good glove that will last longer then a season!

The guys I know that wear them won't wear anything else. I would make them my next purchase.

I only wear Held or Kushitani. Once your fingers are gone, there's no bringing them back.

If you're looking for a good source for Held gloves, here's the best one I know of ...
