Arc-on Apex Gloves - Black / White
Customer Product Reviews
Bloody awsum gloves
Bought these gloves as wanting the CE approval for trackdays and ride via France into continent. They are the dogs dangleys , look great, feel great and have CE rating to give confidence in the event of a spill. Fitted well from the off and felt like I had been wearing them for months, really give you confidence. Quality is outstanding, I have had some top brand names in the past, Knox, Dianese, Revit, all costing far more than what I paid for these and I would rate these better, more quality in the detail, stitching nice and clean, no frays on the edges, fingers that are straight with no twist. I been ridding all my life, 56 now, still on sports bikes and would have to say one of if not the best pair of gloves i have owned.
2nd Pair of Arc-On
I had my first of Arc-On gloves a couple of years and had forgotton how comfortable they were straight out of the box. If anything, these are even better and an accurate fit to boot. The first pair survived a low speed off with barely a scuff; hopefully I wont have to find out how well I expect these to cope.
Never heard of Arc-on but these seem good quality. Good feel through the Kangaroo palm and venting is good too. Only caveat, bit too long in the thumb for me but the fingers are fine. 9 cm hand width so got Large. Price point was cheaper than all competition for the level of protection as well.
Very comfortable glove
Being kangaroo gloves they are naturally a little more giving in dexterity. Great if you have a superbike with rider modes you want to change or tweak on the move with gloves on. Great protection to a good level, of course there is always other tweaks Arc-on could add in the future to the glove.
Like a glove
Soft is an understatement! Never considered Arc-On before (or heard of them to be honest), but thought I'd give them a try after watching the 44Teeth vids via the 'YouTube'. The palm leather glides over your hand and the usual feeling of thinking these are going to take a while to break is immediately banished. Protection looks sturdy, velcro is robust. Great gloves!
Stitching broke after 2 days
After only 2 days ridding the stitching on the fingers broke and the leather came away leaving my fingers exposed. The quality of the leather and the feel is superb but the construction let's the hole glove down. AVOID!
Outstanding comfort, features and British made
I'd never considered Arc-on before. Always opting for the mainstream brands like Alpinestars and Revit. However, I thought I'd give these a shot after trying on various others and boy do I not regret it! The fit is utterly perfect. Finger length, palm shape and size, curvature. All brilliant. Lovely palm leather gives great tactile feel and the armour is very high quality and in all the right places. There's not too much venting so I can where them right into Autumn as well. Add to this Arc-on are British and the armour is made by another British company, Forcefield, they are a winner all round. Don't think I'll buy another brand of racing glove ever again.
Comfortable and secure
I tried a few different sets of gloves before settling on these. They fit superbly, offer a lot of protection and inspire confidence. The price is reasonable given that they compare to the top of the line Dainese and Alpinestars offerings and the multiple Velcro straps make it easy to get them on and off whilst also allowing you to secure them very well. Also, I cannot fault the customer service of Sportsbikeshop - top notch!
