Gloves seem like such a simple concept, yet are one of the most important contact points between you and your motorcycle. I've been a long fan of the TLD 'air' series gloves even though I'm a fanboy at heart for Fox. They have a breathable top mesh, one piece palms, velcro that holds and doesn't scratch your wrist, and style. I really like silicone screened 'pop wheelies' addition to the glove, it adds some personality to them. You put this glove on, and forget you're riding with them. I'm such a believer, I insist my friends try them on and discover what they're missing. I have converted a couple.
The only downside, is this current versions top mesh seems not as durable as previous models. After a few rides, and no crashes, the material is already 'scuffing up'. -See pics. I'd still run these even if I had to replace them twice as often as others gloves.
