 Spidi Carbosix Gloves
Spidi Carbosix Gloves
Spidi Carbosix Gloves Racing glove, designed in collaboration with Spidi riders in MotoGP. Features the widest protection, thanks to the innovative usage of fabrics like Carbon (on the knuckles, back, ulna head, fingers and wrist), steel net areas (on the little finger and palm) that increase the resistance to the abrasion from 2000 to 5000 cycles Further advantage has been created from the capacity of these protections to slide during the crash. A Keramide layer is all over the back and partially on the palm. Shock absorber fabrics like Supratech are placed under every rigid protection The extreme comfort and the easiness of the movement are guaranteed by two leather articulations on the fingers, on the outside of the cuff and on the back. The fixing systems with belt loops and Velcro flap give a perfect fitting. Microfiber zones guarantee the grip on the palm. The outside is constructed of aniline tanned cowhide There are over 160 pieces put together to create the perfect racing glove, including 70 different leather and 20 different carbon pieces

Out of all my gloves this is the one pair that fits my hands the best (wide hand, short fingers). They're extremely comfortable and very durable (crashed in them and they wore very well). Even though they're not vented they seem to stay cooler than some of my other gloves and in the spring/fall they keep you warm-ish. They're good for the track and they're good for the commute. What more could you ask for?
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought a pair of these because I love my Carbo Six gloves and I wanted a pair of highly vented gloves for those 95 degree days at the track. Like their name suggests they vent extremely well. Better than any glove I've had or had since. The glove is very comfortable even when comparing it to my Carbo Sixes. That comfort comes at a price though. I had the unfortunate opportunity to see just how well they held up in a crash last year and I was a bit disappointed. Aside from the palm showing extensive wear (I low-sided) somehow, the leather on the back side of the glove around the carbon crash protector ripped. That rip was a non-repairable area, so I was forced to toss them. With that said, I'd like them for commuting in the warmer months and for those really hot TDs/races when the Carbo Six gloves are a bit hot.
Yes, I recommend this product.
