Tester James Archibald Time tested Four months/3000 miles What’s good? Th­ese are light gloves de­signed pri­mar­ily for warm weather and off-road use, and they’ve been great over sum­mer. The palm is made from sup­ple kan­ga­roo leather, which makes them com­fort­able for long rides, and also al­lows good feel for the con­trols of the bike. The knuckle ar­mour of­fers good pro­tec­tion and ven­ti­la­tion, help­ing to keep my hands cooler, es­pe­cially when rid­ing off-road. The de­sign of the strap is also sim­ple; it’s prob­a­bly an area over­looked by many, but I find it nice to not have to fid­dle with end­less or ill-fit­ting fas­ten­ers. The gloves also fea­ture a short cuff that makes them easy to wear un­der a jacket. What’s not? They aren’t wa­ter­proof, but I per­son­ally don’t find this a prob­lem, though, as rain and high tem­per­a­tures rarely mix in the UK. My gloves are look­ing a lit­tle tired now but that’s more down to me us­ing them off-road than any­thing else.
