Are you supposed to clean gloves? Does riding in the rain count?

Ive heard reports that those gloves will not be allowed at some track days/races. Something about the metal heating up quite abit in a slide, something to think about.

I think they're worth it. Once they break in, they are the most comfortable gloves I've ever owned. I haven't figured out how, but they have good ventilation. And with 4 connections around the wrist, these things are not coming off. The only problem is, while they are breaking in they are painful as hell. I had to contort my hand for awhile because riding normally would kill my pinkie. Now that they're broken in, they kick ass.

They also come pretty small, so you might want to get a larger size than you're used to.

Thanks for the info Modian, but are they that much smaller? I wear a size med glove does that mean I should go up a whole size cuz I'm getting them off the internet and don't want to deal with returns if I don't have 2 plus I'm going with the short cuff if that makes a difference.
Thanks

You can try getting the same size, but you might have a problem getting your hand thru the wrist part of the glove. It's pretty tight there. Fast Lanes has some in stock if you want to go try them on. I usually wear a medium too I think, and went with a large.

I have skinny fingers, so they're a tiny bit loose there, but all gloves are that way for me. Except ladies, which I wore for a year without realizing it. :laugh:

Here's a review: http://webbikeworld.com/r2/icon/index.htm

Why are you going with the short cuff? You lose the wrist protection with that, which is very nice on the full gloves. 3 plates, one on each side and the top.
