They look like JRs; perhaps they are the Team Jordan versions.

Yeah I like em', my old bike do not have the digital clock on the cluster. It would be nice to be able to look down and keep track of time. Cool concept

I don't like 'em... The watch window thingy is coolio though... But for my money, I'm gettin' these...

I have problems with gloves... my fingers are short and skinny so most gloves tend to fit great everywhere except I end up with 1/4-1/2 an extra inch at the fingertips... These gloves on the other hand... fit perfectly.

SMX Air-2 Carbon... They have colors!


Cheapest place I have found is our own Cycle Mart USA! I am going to wait until closer to the holidays as my GF has been hinting about some things that might end up under the tree this year...

They look good. It is all about fit though if you have to increase your grip to twist the throttle without your hand sliding in the glove then you will fatigue a lot sooner. a glove should feel or fit as close to natual as can be for extended ride comfort.

And for me these gloves are the only way to go... they are like a second skin when on...

Note for anyone considering these... They are not insulated at all... only good for warm weather riding...

you can look at gloves in pictures all you want, but I guarentee you if you go to a shop that has any kind of stock and you start trying them on you'll end up with something different.
