Customer Reviews for Knox Orsa Leather Gloves MkII - Black
Feel like Luxury
These are a recent purchase to replace my outgoing summer gloves. I went with size M, they are a very close fit, which has a reassuring feel and snugness about them. I know being full leather they will ease with use. Initial thoughts are these gloves are super luxurious, the boa closure is simple and effective. I look forward to making full use of them come next summer.Read more
Comfy, excellent BOA system.
I'm really pleased with these gloves, they are comfortable, easy to put on or take off-I like the BOA system. They look and feel as though they would offer decent protection, but I hope never to find out!Read more
Impressive design, quality and protection.
I've searched for the right gloves for days if not weeks, I wanted a pair of leather gloves that's short and suitable for summer as well as the slightly colder days while my main objective was the scaphoid protection which 90% of gloves in the market don't have this and if they claim they do, it's of the same material as the gloves i.e leather which I don't think it's good enough as a harder material is needed to slide when comes in connection with the ground. This gloves ticked all the boxes for me.Read more
Made in China
Its a pity that this UK manufactorer has to outsource production to China. Gloves are OK but the size from the wrist to the end of the fingers is longer than the chart states so you end up with floppy ends. The cuff under the BOA system bends under itself which leaves you having to mess about when tightiening the wrist. I found afer 5 rides the colour came out of the black leather. All in all not brilliant. My Knox 3 winter glovers are better made but to hot in the summer.Read more
These are really comfortable gloves great fit and I do like the cable system so easy to tighten. The scafoid protection is great let's hope I don't need it. The quality of the gloves I have not found a fault with. All round very good I would recommend trying them.Read more
I took me several attempts to find a pair of gloves. I initially bought a pair of Alpinestars but they just didn't seem to fit quite right. I then really switched my attention to a short pair. Found these cheaper elsewhere & as always SBS did not fail in price matching. The initial pair I received looked odd as in I think they were a mismatch pair so I returned them. The 2nd pair I received were absolutely spot on. I haven't worn them in anger yet, but straight off, you can tell and feel the quality of them. Granted they are a little tight to get on, but once on, they pardon the pun.... But they fit like a glove. Fell really secure and you can tailor it with the intuitive Boa system, which has a lifetime guarantee once registered with KNOX.... The quality of the leather and finish is absolutely superb. No doubt, as with most things, they will give a little with wear. Super happy with them and thanks SBS for another flawless sale.Read more
Absolutely loving these gloves
I purchased these gloves as I was finding my other gloves a bit sticky in the hot weather, certainly not at all disappointed in my choice. The Boa closure system is quick and simple to use, once on the bike the gloves are supple and give good feel and importantly for me nicely vented. I would say that for me the thumb is a little short, but I do have very long fingers and thumbs. To top it all off the service from sportsbikeshop was amazing as ever, great price, updates at every stage of the order and to top it off they arrived 2 days sooner than advised. Sportsbikeshop are now my go to supplier for my motorbike kit.Read more
Good quality glove
Good quality, and when I've got it on, it fits perfectly to my hand. No annoying flappy bits at the finger tips. The opening to get your hand in is pretty tight even with the mechanism fully released, but when I've got it on and strapped it up it's a really comfortable yet protective glove.Read more
Only just got them so this is initial view. Fit is really good, by far the most comfortable gloves I've owned. Quality feels good as would be expected with knox products. The boa system really holds the gloves in place. Over all very pleased, the only downside is the boa ratchet is quite bulky so check it fits okay under/over sleeves.Read more
Comfortable and fits
Overall good summer gloves, they fit a little on the small side (L) but very confortable over all.Read more
