Recommendations for a Long Glove.

I'm in the market for a long glove for a $100 or less. JR's Blasters 2.0 I just got and well, my momma always told to if I couldnt say anything nice, to not say nothing at all. So post your recommendations/opinions and why and help me get the best glove I can for the money.

I picked up a pair of "Tour Master Cold Front Carbon Gloves". They are waterproof and kept my hands comfortable when the temp was in the low 40's. They are pretty well made and in my opinion, a bargain at $54

Under $100???? Good luck. Spend the cash.



I have Icon Merc's. They have good protection. Not the best fit and finish but at $90 they do the job.

I saw a pair that looked intresting- Vanson 7R11's. Anybody know them?
And of course the Cortech Scarab RR that FNfalman has look good.

I found some short gloves I'll probably get if I can find them anywhere- AGV Sport Demon's. They actually look nicer than any of A* short gloves.

I didn't care for the big molded plastic knuckle guard on them. It doesn't conform at all to the shape of your hand. But if that shape fits you, the rest of the glove was pretty good.

I've always worn Teknic gloves, like the SpeedStar. A might pricey, but worth it. Good gauntlet closures.

2005 GIXXER 1K and 2008 ZX 10R.

i have both the Astars Sp-1 and Sp-2 gloves the Sp-2 are about 79.99$ and the Sp-1 is 99.99.
The 1's are a little longer and better protection. I went down with those on at 75mph or so and dented the CF knuckle and a few scuff's but they held up no issue, still wearing the same pair. the sp-2 are just a little shorter and dont offer the wrist protection and dont have the CF pewices at mid finger.

Both get it done, just a matter of how much u want. the Sp-2 gloves were actually more comfortable for me right away, though the Sp1's just needed a few hours wearing to break in and feel just as good.

SIDE NOTE---Also on cold gloves-- i have hte tourmaster cold tex ones... or just like em but red i got a couple years ago.. like 35$ locally and u wont wanna wear them if its over about 45 degress or you sweat to death in them. But perfect for cold htey work pretty well, inside of the outter part its plastic lined so your hands dont see a drop of liquid except your sweat. Would work well in rain rides too with a good rain suit.

JR gear is mass marketed cheap quality junk now.

I have a pair of full Teknic kevlar gloves that I am very pleased with.

Teknic makes good stuff too... Only gear of theirs i have though is the Chicane boots, cuz i got a awesome deal on them when i was gearing up, the rest is Astars. But the boots are awesome and superlight, so im sure the gloves are good. Boots are jsut not designed to be off the bike at all, Zero padding in em and thin soles for weight and feel.

I had planned to get the SP-2, but they run really small (almost two sizes) and are just too tight at the base of the hand/wrist. No way they would come off if you ditched, but a velcro strap would be much nicer than the extra strong pinch.
