I purchased these gloves but had to return them because the two middle fingers were too long for me. In my opinion, these gloves are a very good deal. Almost the entire glove is lined with aramid fabric. It has a comfortable knuckle protector and an unobtrusive palm slider which is both slick and flexible. There's lots of padding in the palm and a hard slider, as well as firm padding, on the side of the little finger. There's also a finger bridge. The leather on the pair I received was approximately 0.5 mm thick. In my opinion, this is a race ready glove. My only complaint was that the middle 2 fingers were too long for me, while the little finger was almost too short. If you have thick fingers, the fingers may be a bit tight for you. I think that these gloves are an incredible value at $110 list price.

I purchased these to use with my heated grips. I liked that they were all leather (unlike most winter gloves) and had insulation only on the top of the hand. They were very well made and very comfortable right from the start, however, there is not enough insulation in this glove, and when used with my heated grips, I found them to be no warmer than my standard non insulated leather gauntlet gloves.

Great glove in many ways, but the wrist strap would not hold the glove on my hand. No matter how tight you tighten the strap, the glove can be easily pulled off. All the other features don't matter if the glove won't stay on. They should have used a 360 degree wrist strap.

I have not tried this tire on the track, but for street riding I have found it to be very sticky. They will square off pretty quickly if you're not doing a lot of cornering, but I find that it's worth the cost and inconvenience because I have confidence that they will stick in corners and in braking.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Small, but decent pad

Pad was smaller than my original pad. It bends fairly easily so it was easy to fit into the small back pad pocket opening in my jacket. Fairly thick and the pad feels like it would be reasonably effective, much more so than the original thin foam that came with the jacket.
Pros Comfortable
Yes, I recommend this product.

Good Fit, Inadequate padding

These fit well and were quite comfortable, but the padding is too soft and this and is not CE certified. The manufacturer does not claim that the padding is CE certified, but I was hoping for much more thickness and density in the padding.
No, I do not recommend this product.
