Summer / warm weather gloves - February 26, 2016, 04:58 PM

Anyone have thoughts on comfortable gloves with maximum protection? I'm replacing a pair of Held EVO Thrux which I think are very good in the comfort column and "okay" in the protection column.

Anyone want to share first hand experience with other gloves? Particularly gloves that offer more protection.

How comfortable are the hardcore gloves when riding all day long or on a multi-day trip? How about when it's 85 degrees +?

I'm not looking for waterproof, I have separate gloves for that.

I'm looking at things like the Rev'It Stellar or another pair of the EVO Thrux but would like more protection if possible as long as they're still comfortable to wear all day. I'd consider virtually any glove including things like the Revi'It Jerez, Held Phantom II, A* GP Pro or Tech.

My priorities are protection and comfort above all else; price is a distant third.

RS Taichi Evo is a really nice glove. It flows air decently and has the scaphoid protection system. It isn't a true summer glove and isn't the easiest to put on and off, but it has the protection you are looking for and is comfortable enough.

The Held Phantoms I had before this were nice too, but I think the comfort, airflow and protection are a bit better with the Taichi. I have only crash tested the Helds which held up pretty well, although resulted in a broken finger. It is hard to fault the glove for that.

I have the RS Taichi Evo gloves.. real nice, but I don't usually wear gauntlets on the street.. only the silly days.

For regular riding, I've been really impressed by Scorpion's SGS gloves. They have the SPS, knuckle protection, all that good stuff, quality is equal to Taichi, better than A*, and not too pricy at all.

Take every glove recommendation with a grain of salt though- each manufacturer fits to a different size hand. Some fingers are longer than others, some palms wider, etc... like helmets or boots, go try them on and find out what fits YOU.
