Just how big a boy are you?
I bought some dianese (SP?) Full metal racer and they seem big people friendly. There's an xl size on clearance at CG off 45s

I'm 6 feet 170 lbs, not big boy standard, but if you shake my hand you'll know why I need big gloves.

I've been in CG and tried those gloves....no bueno, waaaay too small, (very short fingers)

I faxed my hand to motoliberty and the guy there told me I had huge paws (his words, lol) told him I needed something full gauntlet with decent protection, he sold me the taichis and said that if they ddon't fit, send them back for a full refund.

Last week I got a pair of Held Speed in XXL in long finger version, well, guess what, the fingers where the same length as my alpinestars Sp-1s but the palm was crazy huge, so they went back for a refund.

Last time I was at CG they had some Five RFX1 in XXl and loved the fit but oonce again, fingers just a lil too short, I went to the Five website (france) and they makes them in XXXL (and some other models in XXXXL) but none in the US.

You can't just stretch the fingers out on the gloves? I have a hard time with gloves also, I have fred flinstrone appendages. My fingers are short and my wrist and palm are much bigger. Instead of getting an xl glove that fits my hand I have to get a med or large and stretch it out or else the fingers are to long.

I've used my alpinestars for like three seasons, and they contour better to my hand now, but the fingers, well, there's only so much you can do.

You may want to take a look at the helds, the fingers on the speed glove are pretty wide, and they come in short,regular, and long finger variants.

Maybe get a medium with short fingers?

If that's the case, I would try Dainese. My fingers are too short for Alpinestars and Frank Thomas. My wrist and palm are big too and dainese is comfortable for me.

I got the taichis....disappointed. First, the guy said they were last years model...and I thought...sweet! this is the GP Evo of 2009

Taichi nxt046 gloves blackLG

I liked the fact that the fingers had the seams outside....but instead I received the GP Evo from 2005, like these.

and all the seams are in the fukking iinside! I pput them on and they are so freaking uncomfortable. back to the hunt!
