My Favourite Gloves Ever!
02 July 2024 by Allan J
I just purchased the Mk3 version of the Orsa having owned a pair of Mk1's for 5-years and 20k+ miles. My Mk1's have aged really well and I'm only replacing them as one of the palm sliders has come loose one one corner (I can't bring myself to thrown they away and will keep them as spares).
My first impression of the MK3's is that there is very little (visible) difference to the Mk1. The new ones don't have the soft visor wipe panel at the base of the thumb, which is a shame. The boa wheel is slightly slimmer on the new one, although the chunkier one on the old ones was never a problem for me. The boa system is very easy to use and gives a very snug and reassuring fit around your wrist.
These are a pure summer glove, flowing a lot of air, so don't expect them to be warm or waterproof. The build quality is high and they are very light. As others have mentioned, they are quite a small fit, so you may have to try on a few sizes to get it right. They do break in with a bit of wear though, so buy a snug fit. Once broken in, they fit like a second skin and you can feel all your switchgear in detail.
I've never tested them in a crash situation and hope I never have to, although I trust Knox and trust that they will protect my hands.
They also seem to be a bit of a talking point and I often have other bikers asking me what I think of them, to which I always give a glowing report.

Cracking gloves
01 July 2024 by Philip B
This is my 2nd pair mainly for summer use but with hand guards and heated grips they're good for spring and autumn too! Well ventilated and great great on bars, recommended to a friend who also bought a pair! Obviously not waterproof but dry quite quick and the boa control is brilliant but careful not to do them up too tight as they'll strangle your hands! SBS service is excellent as usual

Great gloves, brilliant service
08 June 2024 by Andy L
The gloves fit perfectly although, I did order a larger size, as I, like others think they come up a little small from Knox. Their kit is excellent though my last pair lasted 8000+ miles of riding.

Great service as always from Sportsbikeshop. Good price, fast delivery - Great all round.

Knox Orsa Textile OR3 Mk3 gloves
28 October 2023 by Nick B
I needed some gloves that fitted easily under my textile jacket without the faff of various velcro fasteners which get in the way. These gloves really fit the bilk with the boa ratcheting fasteners making adjustment really easy without flappy bits of fasteners obstructing my jacket sleeve. The gloves are also really flexible and give good feel for the throttle, clutch and front brake. Really impressed, good value and a good step up from my previous gloves. I didn't buy these gloves to be waterproof as I just wanted a really comfy pair for rides locally when the weather is nice, I couldn't really comment on their waterproofness. I think these gloves bring a good level of technology to the traditional type of glove for the better. Really pleased with them. Sportsbikeshop staff were great and friendly.

Nice gloves, bit of a faff getting the right size .
They feel sturdy and well made, I do like the Boa system for fastening and I can use my iPhone while wearing them

Great for added wrist protection
15 September 2023 by Anonymous
Broke my wrist twice when riding with lightweight summer gloves. These offer good protection when riding off tarmac. The sizing and quality control isn't great though. I had to order 3 pairs to get the size right. Even pairs of the same size are different. Be sure to check that the thumb fits OK. They seem very short in the thumb.

Comfortable Summer Glove
27 August 2023 by Martyn D
I wanted a safe protective glove for summer rides as my hands get really sweaty, my other gloves were a faf to remove & fit when at filling stations. The Knox Orsa Textiles are brilliant. They let the air through while riding & despite being light they feel secure. I particularly like the scaphoid protection & the free movement across the back when gripping the bars. Knox really excel in this area. They need a little time to break in & are true to size. Excellent service from Sportsbikeshop when I tried on in store.

These fit like a glove!
30 July 2023 by Timothy G
Touring last year in 40° was something that taught me a great deal about the hazards of not having the right gear for the day. This year, I've brought the Knox gloves on tour to Austria and Germany, in the pouring rain! - So I put some marigolds on underneath and all is now well.

Superb gloves
16 June 2023 by Wayne
Very comfy, high quality materials and love the Boa fixing. Probably the best summer gloves I've ever bought. Won't talk abut sizing as pointless with everyones hands being unique. Highly recommended, if not a 'best buy' overall.

Excellent summer gloves, cool and comfy. Size if a bit off, usually a M in gloves ended up getting the XL, would recommend trying on first.

Worth the Investment
25 May 2023 by Donald H
I had been trying on summer gloves looking for something that fitted well for a long time. Most gloves were too long in the fingers. These were shorter in the finger than every other glove I have tried and fit me perfectly. The tightening mechanism does sit proud of the glove by a small amount which needs to be considered for under cuff fit. Protection looks excellent. Screen touch works as it should. Very well made.
