Motorcycle Glove Reviews


Icon “Merc” Gloves A few weeks ago, we published our review of the Marsee “Primatista Gaunto” Race Gloves and I proclaimed them as my new favorite. This was after previously declaring that the Held Ninja was my favorite pair of motorcycle gloves; and the Teknic Violators prior to that. Call me erratic, inconsistent or mercurial, but I call it adaptable. This only …

Marsee Motorcycle Race Gloves Thick gloves with lots of protective features and big, double-layered gauntlets. Three cinch straps on the gauntlets. Comfortable. webBikeWorld visitors may recall our recent article on the Held Ninja motorcycle gloves (review). These quickly became my favorites after riding for years with a now beat-up pair of Teknic Violator gloves (review). Well, love is fickle, …

OSI “CoolGuard” Motorcycle Gloves We must get at least a dozen emails each week from factories in Pakistan, India and other points around the globe with interesting offers of motorcycle gloves, jackets and other apparel. Since we don’t sell any products through webBikeWorld, the offers end up in the email trash bin, but not without some …

The Most Popular Held Motorcycle Gloves? Before the days of communication at the speed of light, news about motorcycle gear would travel around the world on the heads, backs and hands of owners returning from Europe. SCHUBERTH helmets, Hein Gericke leathers and Belstaff clothing are now ubiquitous brands that were once rarely seen outside what …

Tourmaster Vented Gloves for Summer Although I’m partial to wearing motorcycle racing style gloves with the highest levels of protection, I’m also a realist. I realize that there are some motorcyclists who either wear no gloves at all (very foolish, in my opinion) or who can’t afford or don’t want a $175.00+ pair of high-end gloves. Also, …

Lee Parks Deerskin Gloves Review The Lee Parks Deerskin gloves have soft deer skin palms and elk skin backs. They are insulated with Outlast phase change material and a layer of Thinsulate on the back of the glove. The special Outlast material allows the glove to be thinner than most winter gloves, which provides good …

Roadgear “Boss” Gloves Review I’ve found my new favorite winter motorcycle gloves! The Roadgear Boss gloves are warm, comfortable, waterproof and windproof. They have a generously-sized gauntlet with a secondary wrist closure for security. An old pair of Belstaff winter motorcycle gloves had been my favorite for many years. They were very comfortable and they …

Winter Motorcycle Gloves These 3M Thinsulate lined gloves keep my hands about as warm as any other winter or cold weather motorcycle gloves we’ve tried. The leather is a bit thin and there’s not much in the way of armor, but you can’t beat the price! I love finding bargains! 35 bucks doesn’t buy much …

Gloves of the BORG Mad Max was a wuss. We now know that the Borg are the most bad-ass life forms in the Universe. Well, if you’ve ever wondered what kind of gloves the Borg wear for a motorcycle ride, you’re looking at them! The styling of these Icon TiMax gloves is obviously what hits you first. The styling …

FirstGear Burnout Motorcycle Gloves FirstGear has gone through an interesting evolution over the last several years. The brand was once well known among BMW motorcycle owners as a manufacturer of high-quality motorcycle clothing. A FirstGear jacket had as much cachet as an Aerostich or Motoport does now. I’m not privy to the whole story, but …

Alpinestars GP Tech Gloves Review The Alpinestars GP Tech gloves are a high-tech, high-quality pair of gloves at a price. If you’re looking for a moderately priced pair of gloves, stop reading. At $235.00 list, these top-of-the-line Alpinestars GP Tech gloves are anything but cheap. They’re in the same category as the Held Galaxy and Krypton gloves or …

Teknic Violator Motorcycle Gloves Summary:   Kangaroo skin palms provide excellent feel; seem to be well made; have held up well. Can be a bit hot in the summer time; the inside folds of the fabric can rub against the fingers. See Also:  Review of the Revised Violator Pro Gloves Can good equipment make you a better rider?  I …

Teknic Violator Pro Motorcycle Gloves Many additional safety features over the standard Violator gloves. Padded knuckle protector “floats” in a separate section to offer more comfort and better protection; new closure system is very secure. As with many race gloves, these can be a bit hot in the summer. There must be a Kawasaki in …
