Very Poor Quality "ABRASIVE" Inner Lining...
I tried to update my review, but Revzilla's site wouldn't allow it. After wearing the Spidi Carbo 3 gloves for about a month now, I can say that the inner lining on these things are basically like sandpaper... I have 4 blisters- now scabs turning into scars- on 2 knuckles on each hand, and even after break-in they still rub after riding. The odd thing is that they do fit comfortably and I do have the correct size glove. So, the problem is 100% the abrasive inner lining. I've been using band-aids to cover my knuckles before putting them on. And, that's helped. I'm probably going to pickup a roll of gauze to wrap my knuckles. But, it is extremely disappointing that a company like Spidi cannot even make a decent race gauntlet at the $200 price point. Sigh.
My apologies for this follow-up being long overdue... Shortly after my post. Revzilla contacted me by phone to inquire about the knuckle abrasion problem I'd been having with with the new Carbo-3 gloves. I explained that the gloves fit comfortably, but my left hand, middle knuckles kept getting chaffed & blistered by the inside of the glove- even after break-in. So, I would wear band aids over my left knuckles before putting them on, and this solved my problem. Revzilla said they contacted Spidi to see if there were any known defects in this batch, but they didn't get any conformation or useful response. So, as a consolation, they gave me $50 store credit to make up for this minor inconvenience. Just wanted to say that I'm very impressed with the extra follow-up Revzilla extended to me for this purchase. And, they care about their customers and try to make sure the products they sell go the extra mile. I'll be shopping here again for sure. Cheers! ~ Detrich
