Gloves...Okay I swear..I promise LAST ONE - May 10, 2010, 11:38 AM

Man I ordered the GPX gloves and they arrived Saturday....only by the END OF SATURDAY did they have a HUGE seam break in between the middle and index fingers...also the thumb was opening up.

THe gloves fit well like a glove...they were not too tight or too loose.

So I gotta send those back for a credit. I called HELD b/c I was going to buy the HELD NAMIB glove that I was looking at but apparantly they are coming out with a NEW glove that is SITLL IN GERMANY AT THE DOCK SHIPPING...AND WILL BE HERE IN 2-3 weeks...well the RED GLOVES ARE HERE...but it's a SHORT CUFF glove just like the POLE POSITION GLOVE and this glvoe is priced at $150...


CHECK IT OUT!!!!!!!!!

Oh yeah they are called the HELD SHORT RACE GLOVE

visor wiper
synthetic stingray
3 and 4 finger bridge
hard knuckles
kangaroo palm...

WOW

I hear you...the whites will get dirty....but something abuot people being able to CLEARLY distinguish when I flip them a bird when I roll by excites me...lol..

No I wanted to stay away from all black gear BUT in the case of the 3 gloves offered the white/black gloves have a tad bit too much white...

haha....hey I'm looking forward to this glove. It's perfect b/c when I bought those alplinestars last week, the whole weekend I was thinking damn it...I should have bought the Held's. I call them up just to find out more about the Held Namib..and fuck me...they have gloves that haven't really hit the net/shelves yet in US stores!!!!

The damn gloves are still in Germany!

So he emails me some pics after describing the glove. Has all the features that I wanted in a glove...I had to put in an order on the spot.

You need this jank, with reflective tape wrapped around the middle finger for good measure.

^Those are pretty nice...

Man I'm hoping SBTG refunds my money on these gloves....I mean the damn things tore apart in less than a few hours.

he was like well did you ride in them. I said I took them around the block....they are white gloves...they sill look life white leather looks...but not bleached white like the kunckle protectors. I mean shit I just got the gloves on Saturday!!!!!! how much can you do in one day getting the glove on Saturday at 10AM? I guess a lot but still...I consider myself an honest dude.

If I knew the freakin gloves were gonna bust wide open I never would have bought or worn them!
