Wasn't expecting that great of a feel- usually with waterproof gloves they're horrible and thick and leave you with no feel and lack of dexterity - however these are lovely and give you enough resistance to be able to balance your clutch and throttle positions. Lovely quality, very well-made and even in 28c not too hot either which is fab Not tried them in the wet yet though! Bit stiff and dry when your first get them so make sure to condition of you have any, and wear them around the house to break them in a little

Good all-rounder

Seems to be waterproof so far. Good level of protection. They allow an average level of hand dexterity. Best suited to mild weather, there is Kevlar inside rather than insulating material. They feel cold in 8*C to me, pair with heated grips. Construction quality is ok, a few stitches around the finger tips look like they will come loose over time. Good value, there's not much else with the same features. Only really let down by lack of insulation but they may be better in the summer for it. Could also do with ability to operate a touch screen

Moderate protection

Well made gloves, with a solid feel. The thumb is oddly long. Protection feels a bit light - some plastic on the knuckles and good wrist guard, but not much more. Closure system is easy to use, and nicely waterproof. I'm using these in warm, wet conditions and they're doing well. Sportsbikeshop as usual are brilliant.

Brilliant gloves

These gloves are brilliant! I finally pulled the trigger after a few weeks thinking about it. Favourite glove purchase I've made. They have been completely waterproof for me and very comfortable with great feel. Build quality is so good that it's made me consider trying Held clothing even though I find the styling a bit dull. The cuff isn't too bulky, you should be able to fit under jackets and over jackets pretty easily. This is not a winter glove per say - I use heated grips and have Barkbuster blizzard so it's been completely fine in around 5c temperatures. You should not use these in winter without grips and wind guard for the hands. Regarding fit - I'm a large in RST, Richa, Knox and Weise and find them all true to size; for these gloves I am an XL.

Questions and Answers

Questions and Answers

  • whether these gloves are suitable for hot and rainy days

    April 10, 2019

    We can confirm these gloves would be suitable as they are vented and Gore-Tex lined.

  • Hi, I am planning to order this Held-glove. But I want size 10, (after tested a Held glove at Home). What is that in XL, L or M? Also I want long fingers if possible. Please help. Best reg. Claes

    January 3, 2018

    A size 10 equates to an XL. Unfortunately a long finger option is not available in this glove.
