Do yourself a favor and buy a pair of Held Galaxy gloves- they're by far the best I've ever owned.
Got an AWESOME deal from Dave Ashi at Ant-Racing.com, and he's a great guy to deal with too. His number is: 877-268-7973

Re: (Holliday)

Another vote for Held gloves - awesome....

I have the Dianese T-Age as a spare set but I will probably buy another pair of Held when it come time to replace my current ones - yes, they are that good...

Just out of curiosity, why was Joe Rocket not on your list?? I have a set of their 'HighSides' and they are awesome. Fit great. I personally think it's kinda funny but seems like most of the time on just about all forums, when someone is looking for gear they hardly ever mention Joe Rocket and there stuff is very good. I have a jacket also, and thoroughly enjoy it. Just FYI.

Re: gloves (doughboy_748r)

My best luck has been either cyclemall.net or kneedraggers.com. For current styles they seem to have the best prices. For some last season stuff someone turned me on to newenough.com.

Re: gloves (ccolwell)

another vote here for Held Galaxy gloves. Regarding the earlier comment about Joe Rocket gloves, I can personally share my feedback on them - last year I lowsided going through a turn at roughly 100mph. I was wearing a Vanson suit, Oxtar boots, Arai Helmet and Joe Rocket gloves. When I was done sliding (a long way), the only damage I sustained was on my hands. The suit, boots and helmet completely protected me but the gloves looked liked they went through a shredder. My hands had quite a bit of cuts and abrasions on them. I was incredibly disappointed at how easily the leather shredded. I learned to never go "cheap" again on anything that's gonna protect my body in a crash.

I also have the Held Galaxy gloves and highly recommend them. You can't beat the kangaroo hide for comfort and protection.

Re: (teckhardt)

I just got the Held Galaxy gloves as well. Awesome gloves. I got them from New Enough, which, while not having the best price, was reasonable, had great info on sizing them, and they have had excellent customer service so far. Emails that things shipped, tracking numbers, answers... things that are sometimes hard to get from online companies.
I can't wait to get home and try on the Sidi boots that are on their way! I received shipment notice on them today, unfortunately I will not be in back in the states until the 27th. When I asked, it was absolutely no problem for them to extend the 15 day exchange period because of this. I give them

Re: (MPower)

another vote for the held galaxy. i picked mine up from bcm last year and they're great. one break in ride (from bcm back to nyc
) and they've been very comfy since. will be doing my first track day of the season this coming monday so it'll be their first time on the track. i had 2 pairs of dainese race gloves before the held and i loved the feel of the dainese. from day 1 they were super supple and comfy but get them wet and they're done. a pair only lasted me a season before they started wearing thin on the right thumb (turn signals). if only the dainese lasted longer....

Another vote for the Held Galaxy...by far the best gloves (and most comfy) I've ever owned. Great protection, excellent fit and superb workmanship. The kangaroo hide just keeps getting better. Will never go back to Alpinestars GPs or any other so-called race gloves. I've got a basket full of expensive gloves and the Helds are better than all of the rest combined.

My shop is a dealer for Held gloves and when we got the account, I picked up a pair of Held Kryptons for myself. Awesome gloves!!! You can't go wrong with any of their gloves.

We're also dealers for Vanson and I've been thinking of getting a pair of their Track Gloves as well. Anyone try them yet?

Lastly, Kushitani also makes good gloves.
