Award Winning

There's a reason why our competitors spend so much time watching what we do, we believe in customer service levels beyond the norm and we're always looking for ways to improve. In late 2013 we were recognised for this by the bike industry's No.1 publication, Motorcycle News. As retailer of the year, we feel it's our duty to constantly better our offering and if you have any ideas, we'd love to hear from you!

Free UK Delivery

It's really simple, if you spend over £25 with us, delivery is free of charge to any mainland UK address (excluding Islands & Highlands).

365 Day Returns

We simply don't believe in making the sale and moving on, we want to make sure our customers are happy with their purchase. That's why we now offer a full 365 day returns period. Simply relax, take your time and make sure it's right! All we ask is that you try the items within your own home and return with the tags intact.

60,000+ Reviews

Whilst we know a bit about bikes and bike kit, the best road testers out there are our customers, real bikers, just like you. If you're looking for advice on what to buy, you'll find over 60,000 independent product reviews which we've posted, unedited, for all to see. Whether it's a question about sizing, quality or something else, our customer reviews are quite simply, the best place to start.

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.

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.

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.
