Can anyone offer an opinion on either of these two gloves...

The red one is the S-MX 5
The black is Tourmasters Cortech Accelerator

Is either one any better than the other that anyone knows of?

Thanks in advance!

I personnaly would go with the S-MX 5 because I don't like gloves with a padded palm, which the accelerator's have. If you like the idea of having a gel padded palm, then go with the tourmasters. I don't like the gel padded palm because it takes away from the feel of the bike, but that's just my opimion. The tourmaster accelerator gloves have the added bonus of padde wrist protection, which is nice. The only other big difference that I know of is the price. The S-MX5s sell for $62 and the Accelerators sell for $53. I currently use Joe Rocket gloves. If you have not looked at Joe Rocket gloves, I would recomend them. That's my $0.02.

Word. These are the only acceptable style at the track too. I would use the ones he posted though if he's just going to the store or to work or some where close where he's not going to get up to speed or have a risk of a high speed accident.

Okay then... Cuffs is best...

Any suggestions? I won't be going to a track for long time, so I'm just looking for some basic hand protection. Please remember I'm NEW.

...the racing glove

Akira Yanagawa, star of the Kawasaki World Superbike Team, supported us in the development of this further improved GALAXY. We improved not only the security, but also the fit in the crucial area around the lower hand and thumb, to reduce crumpling to a minimum.
highly abrasion and sweat-resistant colourfast kangaroo leather used on palm and back
unlined palm, back and thumb fully padded with shock-absorbing SUPROTECT and Kevlar® (fibre brand)
pre-formed, crumple-free palm
special flat seam avoids pressure points on inner hand, and enhances feel
side hand protection and rivet patch with Kevlar® ( fibre brand) padded with SUPROTECT
velcro adjustment at wrist and inside of cuff
CARBON-ARAMID-KEVLAR mouldings gives knuckles maximum protection
the 2 smallest and most vulnerable fingers are protected with special leather and schoeller-DYNATEC

Okay, that's too much. Not that I mean to put a "price on my hands" but I can't afford that much glove right now.

I'd like to go with the A* brand at least to match my jacket. In considering cuffs, I wonder if I should consider the SP2... what do you think?
