  • Summer riding gloves.

    What's everyone running these days? I've been using these. https://www.alpinestars.com/collecti...31614602412090

    That's what I am using. They are the first non-gauntlet gloves that I have owned and I like them a lot. Comfortable and cool.

      For the money, the best shorty gloves I can find that include Knox palm sliders and at a good price.

        I just don't feel comfortable wearing shorty gloves, although I have an old pair of Alpinestars that I wear for city riding in summer. Bought them from a member here years ago.

        I have a pair of Held Agadir for hot days, which are made from unlined, perforated, kangaroo leather. Amazing gloves, enough ventilation to keep my hands cool but still have reasonable protection. I wear race gloves most of the time though as it isn't usually that hot here.

        They are discontinued but I'm hoping they will last another few summers. Not sure whether there is a direct replacement for them in the Held range.

          I bought a pair of the Klim Mohave gloves last year and these are the most comfortable summer glove I have ever worn. I will order another pair after this summer. The best part is they are under $50

            I have two pair of Helds as pictured above that I rotate through my kit as needed.

                Interesting. I am preparing to order new gloves right now. Kind of surprised so many of us are going away from gauntlet gloves. When I raced (and occasionally crashed) I greatly valued the added protection of the gauntlet.

                  I forgot to add. Next set of gloves I get, I'll be trying this company......

                    Not exactly summer gloves but I'll try a pair of these when available.

                    Not exactly summer gloves. I had a pair of Held Air N Dry that were two in one and they worked great but were a tad too small. Price has since gone up to $295 and I "lost" $150 on that pair so I'll try the "cheaper" option.

                      I just sprang for the Held Evo-Thrux gloves, $170 at Revzilla. Too many good recommendations not to go this way for a gauntlet sport glove!

                        I'm sure you'll like them if they're anywhere near as good as the Titan Evo gloves I bought on special a year ago. They might look a bit hardcore for street riding, but you don't notice the armour once riding.

                        Not for hot days with the Kevlar lining on the back.

                          And most importantly - they will match your bike and riding gear nicely. We all like to be colour coordinated!

                            I'm over black gloves and how they fade after a couple of seasons.
