At $60, I might pickup a pair just to have!

I really like my Icon Pursuit Perforated. I have crash tested them and they held up really well [until EMS cut them off ;0) ]. Bought another pair when I started riding again few years ago. I also have a pair of Icon Twenty-Niner's I also really like. Just not comfortable in the gauntlet, up to my elbow, gloves.

You must have tiny little t-rex arms to get those gloves up to your elbows! haha. I think full gauntlets go about 2 inches past my wrist? Just enough to cover the jacket gap at any angle. Leaves another 8 inches or so to get anywhere near my elbows!

My personal favorite. I am on my second pair of the older style, but if I were shopping for new, these would be it. Summer glove? Maybe not, but protection is superior and the ability to stop road rage fights before they start is priceless.

those are impressive gloves!

I got the AGV's yesterday and am super happy with them. My old Joe Rockets are on the left, they have one small velcro strap that doesn't hold at all. The AGV's have 3 straps and aren't going anywhere. Plus better palm protection and wrist guards on both sides. They look good too

Also turns out I have been wearing gloves that are too small. Old ones are large, new are XL and fit much better. Hopefully this helps with the right thumb falling asleep, extremely annoying.

Well I'm glad my advice and link was paid attention to! I don't think there's a better 99$ glove and I think it'll perform like a 250$ one

Edit. Just saw that you got them for 60$! Dude! Whoa!!! That is a absolutely crazy deal. Nice


Here's the link again to 60$

I snagged a pair of blue AGVs for $60 from Revzilla. Thanks man!

My old gloves are Tecknics, they have to be 15 years old and are stiff as boards. All the seams are still in place though. I suspect they are pretty much just petrified facscimiles of gloves at this point, quite overdue for some new ones anyway.

You can't find a better deal. I truly believe these are 200$ gloves but someone at AGV doesn't know how to count

Good call, I'd been meaning to pick some armored shorts up. Hideous tribal pattern, but great price. They'll be perfect for the dirt bike.

Held Airstream is what I bought.

$175 through Revzilla. It is the most that I had ever spent on a pair of gloves, but I wanted a good, protective pair of summer gloves. They are nice too.

haha, the tribal pattern is probably what got it to the closeout price but at least no one will see it on the open road (hopefully)

ANOTHER Held fan here.
I am on my third pair of Helds, second pair of Titans.
They are just a superior bit of gear and outlast anything else I have ever used.
I ride all year round. Most cowhide gloves are stuffed inside 18 months.
The Held gloves seem to last me at least 5 years. I have crashed in them and they just keep on going regardless.
Protection is second to none too.
