Kushitani gloves

Who carries Kushitani gloves? I am interested in looking closer at them before sinking that kind of $$$ on 'em.

i hadn't been back to TWS (Texas World Speedway) this year but, times at MSRH are looking good compared to the guys with the multi colored gloves.

I feel bad enough using those as "loaner" gloves for students in my classes.

I keep hearing folks say Held, but I'm not quit there yet. My last couple of gloves have been Teknic. Not too fond of Icon fit/feel. I can't get my big mits into a set of A*'s. I know Kushitani runs on the small side, but I would still like to at least give them a shot.

I love the Teknics Violators I have been using. Kangaroo and kevlar. Have held up to couple of track spills as well.

I am not too worried about price yet. I'll find the best deal around once I make up my mind which ones to go with.

I had forgotten about MotoGP. Nobody carries them up here either. I wouldn't be opposed to another set from Teknic, I just want to try a new flavor.

I had a set of TM Cortech cold weather gloves. I will need to replace them in a few months too. Great glove against the weather, but I wish they had better crash protection.
