Are these gloves legal for the track

Does anyone know if these gloves are legal for the track.

CCS/NESBA/SBTT. I could swear I remember them saying gaunlet style gloves.

Thanks

Nick

I'm not sure if it's legal, but it not a gauntlet style and I wouldn't wear them. The glove needs to go over the outside of your leathers or you risk separation and road rash if your jacket rides up.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

nice gloves, i got the full gauntlet gloves in black.
i dont know about nesba, but those are good enough in my view cause it protects the hands, but it doesnt protect your wreist.

so for saftey sake, your wreist are exsposed and not protected all that great.

They look to be ok, but I'd wear gloves that are longer up the forearm.

You really want something like this. See how they cover more of the forearm. If you go to the bike show there are always good deals around.

Technically Nick, those are not gauntlet style gloves. May be good for the street and better than nothing, but I doubt it would pass tech IF they caught you.

I can't remember my gear ever being tech'd though unless Kevin is looking while walking the line. (cue Johnny Cash) .

looks more like a soccer goalie glove.

I will also add that at the last Putnam event a rider had these gloves, guantlet style, and crashed. The steel, disc/plating on the knuckles sliced straight through the gloves and made several cuts on his knuckles and back of hand. Get rid ot these POS gloves. Even if they are gauntlet style.
