Motorcycle Glove Reviews


Joe Rocket Phoenix 3.0 Motorcycle Gloves We counted 18 different pairs of Joe Rocket motorcycle gloves available for sale in their 2007 catalog. The list includes everything from full race gloves (Speedmaster 6.0) to Supermoto gloves and everything in between. Joe Rocket has settled on a few different branded clothing lines. These include the “Speedmaster”, …

Alpinestars Sledge Motorcycle Gloves Not the favorite pair in this comparison The Alpinestars Sledge Street Sport Riding Gloves are one of many different styles of motorcycle gloves offered by Alpinestars. The “Sledge” model is new for 2007; apparently, it’s so new, it hasn’t even shown up on their website as this article was published. The …

Joe Rocket Atomic 2.0 Motorcycle Gloves It’s interesting to note that the list price of the Joe Rocket Atomic 2.0 gloves is $10.00 less than the Joe Rocket Phoenix 3.0 gloves. We’re not sure where the Atomic line fits in the Joe Rocket line, but you’d think that for 10 bucks less you’d get less leather …

REV’IT! Monster Motorcycle Gloves The REV’IT! Solar mesh gloves are a summer favorite around here, with just the right combination of air flow and comfort. The Solar gloves were revised last year to incorporate goatskin, giving them a broken-in feel right out of the box. REV’IT! has developed a huge selection of clothing over the years. Their …

Teknic Road Iron Motorcycle Gloves The Teknic Road Iron Gloves (also known as the Teknic “Iron Road” Gloves) are an interesting entry for 2007 in the summer glove market. While Teknic markets the gloves in their “Cruiser Highway” collection for 2007, this glove is sure to be popular with more than just the bad-ass Big Twin …

Racer Supply RSC2 Gloves Review Visitors send us many different suggestions for products to review. Some of the ideas work out pretty well, while others are a flop. The time it takes to order the product, run the evaluation, write the article and get it published can vary from days to weeks, depending on the schedule, and …

Teknic Speedstar Gloves Review Teknic Speedstar gloves offer what is probably the latest and greatest thinking for motorcycle race gloves. They fit my slim fingers and although they’re snug, they are comfortable because of the extra care taken on the lining and internal stitching. We’ve always been impressed with Teknic motorcycle clothing and accessories and we even …

Warmthru Fingerheaters Battery Heated Gloves My safe prediction is that within the next year or two, motorcyclists will be freed from their wired heated vests, pants, gloves and who knows what else. Time — and technology — marches on, and as new generations of batteries get smaller, lighter and more powerful, the day will soon come …

Hurt Schizo Gloves Review I’m still trying to wrap my mind around spending 300 C’s for a pair of motorcycle gloves. The numbers keep ticking off in my head and I can’t keep from thinking about what else I could buy for that much cash. My mind rolls over and over, trying to conjure up something — …

Held “Fresh” Motorcycle Gloves The air is just starting to get that taste of fall and the leaves are beginning to think about leaving town. So it may seem like a strange time to do a review of the Held Fresh summer mesh gloves. I’ve been wearing them for several weeks, but our busy schedules of late …

Olympia Women’s Perforated Leather Gloves In all my years of riding and pillioning (a new word I just made up!) on motorcycles, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a woman wearing full leathers and race equipment. Not that it doesn’t happen, because I have seen some photos of women at track days who are dressed …

2008-2009 Winter Waterproof Motorcycle Gloves Review webBikeWorld visitors frequently ask for comparison reviews of various products. But there are several logistical problems with this type of review. These are discussed in this section of the Site Info page and this 2008 winter glove review poses yet another issue. This was initially planned as a single review of …

Joe Rocket GPX 2.0 Men’s Professional Race Gloves We’ve been reporting on the evolution of Joe Rocket clothing for several years, watching the quality rise from mediocre to first-rate during that time. I remember not too long ago when buying a Joe Rocket jacket was nearly the social equivalent of buying a helmet at K-Mart.  But …

Protective Mesh for Summer The first thing that caught my eye was the $54.95 list price for these Komodo mesh motorcycle gloves. I tried them on and then did a double- and triple-take at the price tag, which seemed about 30% lower than I expected. “Must be an End-of-Summer sale”, I thought. But it’s not — $54.95 …

Velocity Gear F9 and S1 Gloves Review Nice gloves, loaded with features. Based on our examples, they fit 1/2 to 1 size wider than normal. We get many tips about interesting new motorcycle products and accessories from our visitors. Some of them are dead-ends, and others are golden. The tips, that is, not the visitors! …

Rain-Off Waterproof Gloves Review Waterproof over-gloves that can be a bit fussy to wear. You’d think the word “waterproof” would mean, uh…waterproof? As in no water gets through, never? I mean, how many definitions of the word “waterproof” do we need? Seems like there shouldn’t be much controversy over its definition… But in Motorcycle World, …

Racer “High End” Gloves Review Very nice gloves, loaded with features that really make a difference. Well worth the money and actually surprisingly inexpensive compared to others we’ve seen. It’s interesting to watch how the popularity of different motorcycle clothing items waxes and wanes over time. We recently featured several articles on back protectors and visitors kept …

REV’IT! Ultra Gloves REV’IT! designs and manufactures a substantial line of motorcycle jackets, pants and gloves in both leather and textiles. We were impressed with the REV’IT! R-Tech jacket and X-Vent pants, and the REV’IT! Ultra Gloves are a good match either with or without the complete REV’IT! ensemble. The Ultra gloves have been designed to fill a …

Held “Ninja” Gloves Riding a motorcycling is a fantastic sensory experience that never ceases to amaze. We rely on our eyes and ears, the seat of our pants and the feel of the air pressing against our bodies, but our hands serve as the primary interface to the motorcycle. Motorcycle gloves act as a barrier to the …

REV’IT!! Mesh Gloves for Warm Weather September 11, 2006 – The designers at REV’IT! never seem to rest. Their Solar mesh gloves have been redesigned and now feature Pittard’s Digital goatskin leather on the palms. The new style Solar gloves are shown in the top photo on the left with an additional photo below. Other than the …

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 …
