I have been putting off reviewing these gloves for a while, as I have had them for over a month as we have been getting slammed with snow and cold here in Pennsylvania and I have not had many opportunities to get out on my bike. These gloves do run quite small: I measured my hand and they recommended a size 11, but I ordered a size 12 - their version of an XXL - and they still seem overly snug. (I had thought about returning them, but I’ve never seen a size 13 on Revzilla’s web site.) So, what with the big snow storm today, I got out of work early and took my size 12 Rukka Plutos out for a spin … on the sledding slope. As I wore them, my hands were warm and the gloves began to break in, making my hands feel a bit less restricted and more comfortable. Most importantly, my hands were bone dry after multiple sledding runs. For reference, the temperature outside was 20 degrees and there was a steady 15-20 mile/hour wind blowing. Not an exact apples-to-apples comparison with regards to riding a bike in wintery weather, but this will give you a sense as to the gloves cold weather capability.
As far as armor and design: yes, these gloves do lack hard knuckles, but there is soft armor across the knuckles so you are not totally unprotected. The palm is leather-reinforced and has a hard slider to protect you against a slide in the event of an accident. Overall, I think these gloves are stylish and well designed. Most importantly, they will keep your hands warm and dry in cold weather.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Leo Vince LV-One EVO II Slip-On Exhaust Triumph Tiger 800 / 800XC The Leo Vince LV One EVO II Slip-On Exhaust is the entry level exhaust in the LeoVince line and is built on the success of the SBK Factory range. Similar in shape to the original LV ONE, the EVO II has taken a leap forward with the use of the most modern materials and a redesigned end-cap. The end-cap is constructed of a techno-polymer that is both durable and heat resistant. Gone are the days of a square muffler inlet cap, the LV One EVO II incorporates an aerodynamic inlet cap to reduce drag and increase its sporty appeal. Last but not least it features that distinct LeoVince performance and sound that will enhance your motorcycles power output throughout the entire RPM range. Two options are available for most models: stainless steel and carbon fiber. The stainless steel features ASIS 204 stainless steel with a special sandblasted finish giving it a titanium-like look. The carbon fiber option is the lighter than stainless steel and features a flat finish that exposes the intricate carbon fiber weave. Features: CAD/CAM design for precise fit Techno-polymer end-cap Weight savings over stock exhaust Increased horsepower across the entire RPM range TIG-welded AISI 304 stainless steel link pipe Tuned to work with stock fuel settings Note: Leo Vince Exhaust no longer features the Leo Vince SBK logo, please reference image #1 for the current exhaust logo.

The Leo Vince LV-1 slip-on arrived via UPS Ground and took all of a cup of coffee to install. It weighs about half as much as the OEM exhaust on my Triumph Tiger 800, and has a smaller profile ... that's a good thing. Produces a notable change in the sound, as the exhaust note is now deeper. Not sure if I get any more power, but the better look and sound are worth the price in my opinion. The packaging from Leo Vince was also very impressive. You can tell a lot about an organization from the way they present and package their product, and this is a nice quality exhaust can! Since I had $25 in RevZilla cash available, this slip-on was just too inexpensive to pass up.
Yes, I recommend this product.
