Tester Emma Franklin Time tested Seven months/4000 miles What’s good? Light­weight and ex­tremely com­fort­able, these goatskin gloves have been my ev­ery­day choice for summer rid­ing. Ba­sic in spec but ex­tremely well made, there’s in­ter­nal knuckle ar­mour, and re­as­sur­ing pad­ding on the backs of the hands and in the scaphoid area on the palm. The in­ter­nal Out­last lin­ing seems to help keep my hands warm on cooler days and pre­vents sweaty hands get­ting stuck in­side the gloves on hot­ter rides. After a brief bed­ding-in pe­riod, they fit me per­fectly, and I re­ally like the rub­ber vi­sor wipe on the left in­dex fin­ger, although these gloves don’t claim any rain­proof­ing abil­i­ties.

What’s not? The spec claims the goatskin outer is colour­fast, yet that didn’t stop these gloves badly stain­ing my hands black after a wet track­day. It’s the worst case of colour-run I’ve ex­pe­ri­enced and the dye was very dif­fi­cult to scrub off my skin when I got home. Con­tact www.held-uk.co.uk Qual­ity ★★★★★ Value ★★★★★

Su­perb fit but the colour ran in the rain
