The race-inspired SLR glove offers heavy-duty protection paired with serious comfort and style, making it excellent for racing as well as everyday rides. Made from durable cow nappa, the SLR features a goatskin palm and the unique REV'IT! dual-comp palm slider and PU finger sliders. Silicon-injected panels build on that foundation, adding a secure grip and precision to your feel.

I tried these on at a local motorcycle store, and they look great and have great protection for the money. However, the dealbreaker was the wrist closure loop (where the strap folds back on itself). The metal D ring digs into the top of your wrist, because of the position of the loop. In the 2 minutes I had the gloves on, it put a nice dent in my wrist and rubbed the skin raw. I can't imagine riding in these for an hour.
Unfortunately, the wrist closure is in the same position on most of the gloves in Revit's lineup, which turned me off of their gloves entirely, which is a shame, because they are some of the nicest looking gloves out there.
Revit makes great products, but this is just a bad design.

No, I do not recommend this product.
