Good Gloves: Tricky Stuff (Buying Guide)
« on: June 19, 2018, 08:14:50 AM »
Buying a good Pair of Gloves can obviously save your fingers but how would you know you have the right ones? I know, alot of us kind of feel like sitting at a Buffet :P LOL

Well here are some tips to decide!

Types:

Fingerless, MotoCross, Street, Off-road, Glauntlet, Summer, Winter, Race, Adventure/Touring. (You never thought we had so many options did you?)

Riding Style:

You can find great gloves at dead dropped prices. These aren?t gloves from no-name brands but from solid motorcycle brands who have a long history in the industry. But (this is a quite obvious, But) just like anything else budget matters and often you pay for what you get.

If you are a regular tourer your options range from Gauntlets, Summer, Winter, Adventure/Touring.
If you are into Race/Offroading: your options are limited and they cost you a BOMB!

What do you have to look out for in a good pair of Gloves?

Finger Feel:
A tight glove is just going to makes your fingers hurt on a long haul and make the ride even more stressful.

Size, Fit, Features and Protection:
Multiple brands have different ways of measuring the size of the palms or fingers depending on the standards they have set during manufacturing. Look out for things like length of the gloves (towards your wrist), Material and protectors if any. Its all about the feel you get when you wear it.

All said and done: Here is my take on this, most of us are either beginners or have upgraded to a 350cc + recently, look out for affordable and comfortable options that are available in the market. Trust me you don't have to invest on a Kevlar Glove unless you are trying to cross the India Border.

your options: Aspida, BBG, Solace, TBG, Zues, Rev It!, Alpine Star(starter Gloves)

As always, Wear your gear, stay protected, ride safe! and most importantly TRY IT BEFORE YOU BUY IT!

I am planning to buy a set of full gauntlet gloves from Shima. They look very good. Only grouch is the ₹7500 price tag. Anyone who is using please provide some info as to whether is it worth it?

Shima is a good and upcoming brand, I did try those gloves in one of the recent meetups from Gear n Ride.

My opinion:

The leather is not that great however, the knuckle protectors and sliders look promising.

If your budget is around 7k, you have alot of full glauntlet options from Aspida, BBG, Alpine Star, Rynox, TBG and so on.


Check out a few more stores before deciding.

Not really interested in Aspida or any Spartan Pro Gear associated products. Solace my brother has. Leather is also not that great quality and doesn't fit me perfectly. Alpinestars is not available in full gauntlet for that cost. I will head to Orion store and try out the Shima gloves.

Would suggest you to visit Adeshwars or LGU and have a look at the gloves they have ,I have seen some good ones from RYNOX too also there is Alpinestars if you have a good budget. Visit these stores as they have a lot of brands which you can try and buy.
