What gloves have you got?

Hi all,

I'm going to need some new gloves soon (both winter and summer/racing). Just wondering what everyone out there is wearing and how you rate them.

I only have some summer racing ones at the mo - Dainese Intruder. Sounds a bit filthy but I find them to be really good.

Was thinking about getting some Texport TX-1 for summer use, and Texport Defender Pro for winter. Both came very high up in the latest Ride mag reviews.

Thoughts? If anyone has any!!

Cheers,

Ade.

I don't remember what my winter gloves are to be exact, some Alpinestar numbers.

My summer gloves are Alpinestars GP Pro - top notch!

Had the Alpinestars Gp pro, but they didn't last more than 5 crashes....you just can't get quality these days....seriously...they were excellent. Had some Dainese race gloves but they ripped on impact, so I sewed them again, but then one freezing cold race day I put them on the engine to dry and warm between races and they er well stuck to it, bullocks. Also got Alpinstars winter jobbies which are brilliant. Not that warm, but always dry.

Bought some Held gloves from Graham at GLF in Flitwick who does all the MJK leathers. Superb gloves, best I've ever had by a long way.

Held for me as well, superb gloves, and not that expensive, about 118 for the top spec ones.
Winter gloves are Hein Gerrick waterproof, which they are and warm too so that's that sorted.

A star for me too. Great gloves!

Had Joe Rocket before which were really comfy, but the finger wore through (shortly before my finger wore through ) so I decided I needed a little more protection.

Apparently my Astar glove survived pretty intact after last off, but the ambulance 'lost' it, so I will never know!
