I'm on the hunt for a simple glove suitable for use out on the road. I've got a big winter pair and a thin leather pair (although they have all the sports bike / power ranger armour on them) and both have long cuffs gauntlet style that make then a pain to put inside my jacket.

What I'd like is a motorcross style glove but with a leather / synthetic leather palm and a short cuff, and the minimum of extra armour/vents/carbon bits! I found a KLIM adventure glove but it came with a warning that it provided minimal protection on the road.

Can anyone suggest something suitable?

Many thanks

Try sealskinz's lightweight glove, ... -grey.html I managed to get a pair for £30 in a sports pursuit sale, super comfy and fit under my traverse perfectly with a short cuff.
Finally back on a GS :D

Richard sub zero.

This is exactly what you want. I use a pair every day and they are great. Totally waterproof and very warm.

This is my next pair.... ... loves.html

A decent light, short cuffed glove with good armour, but enough flexibility to feel the bike and take her off-road when curiosity gets the better of me or I'm looking to camp for the night. :)

As for the winter considerations...I have heated grips and hand-guards. (thumbs)

Happy shopping mate!

oh...and did I mention the price? :)
