Verified Customer Reviews for Knox Hanbury MKII CE Glove
I have several pairs of Knox gloves. Frustratingly I was forced to try a pair out while wearing Urbane trousers and jacket. So, when my wife needed a pair of gloves: there was no need to look elsewhere !
Wanted a short cuffed smart phone compatible leather glove.
High quality and attention to detail is evident.
Fit wise, personally I hate gloves that don't have a snug fit. I fall between the Large and XLarge size so as per normal, went with the Large with the hope that they would break in and being leather, stretch to my desired size. Sadly for me, after two weeks of use, they haven't really stretched but I love the glove so much, I've now ordered the XL size too.
For smart device use, they work as intended. Needed especially with the new bikes and the touchscreens they come with.
It drops one star because the wrist restraint could be improved with a loop through strap as I can pull the gloves off without undoing the Velcro on the current wrist closure.
Anyway, nice to wear, breaks in quickly and goatskin is a big plus. Great in warm weather, easy to put on and look good.
The important thing here is the hard slider on the palm. In an accident it's proven to reduce rider injury and few other gloves offer it. That alone makes it a winner.
These Knox Hanbury MKII gloves are excellent, I bought them to wear when riding my Royal Enfield Bullet Bobber, I already own a pair of Knox Handroid MK4 which I wear when riding my CBR1000RR, so I know how good Knox equipment is, the Hanbury are a perfect summer glove, very comfortable and with lots of safety features, like the palm sliders that help to prevent damage to the wrist and lower arm by allowing the hand to slide across the road surface instead of gripping and causing greater injury, they are really well made and I like the look of them, black and brown leather, also another feature is touch pads on the finger tips, designed so the wearer can touch the screen of a mobile phone or sat nav, this works really well and is a nice touch, like all Knox equipment they are excellent quality and I'd recommend them to anyone looking for a summer glove for when riding during the summer months and who want a short style glove..
A really good summer glove .Made by Knox need I say more
