All seasons riding gloves

Excellent construction and fit. First rate glove for all seasons. Expensive yes but I would expect these gloves to last many years.

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.

Great kit

Snug fit, measure your hands and size accordingly, work great in the rain, nice and dry, cold weather riding 0 and below the tips of your fingers will still get cold due to wind chill but nothing painfull......great for Scottish weather

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.

Supposed to be waterproof, well I can tell you they're not, I know @ £114 they are not the most expensive gloves, but I shall not be buying another pair.. I will look for a "Waterproof" pair now

Great gloves

I cannot fault these gloves at all. I haven't tested them in heavy rain yet but they are very comfortable and look great. The build quality is also there.

A real quality glove, that excuse the pun "fit like a glove". I live in Spain so these will be perfect for the weathers we get...all or nothing!

Good quality glove

Good quality materials and manufacturing. Gloves fit well, I bought a size large as usual and they fitted well if just a little snug but will break in after a while. There very good tactile wise though its not rained so far can't say about how waterproof they are. Overall I am very happy with my purchase and would recommend.

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.
