well I have the gell nuckled gloves for during the hot weather, they don't protect much but the sure do breathe. During the winter when your white nuckled cause it's so cold I use leather gloves, and if your smart you'll come up with a lil something extra like Pepe and where rubber gloves under your leather gloves.

I had Joe Rocket phoenix for my last set. After about 6 months the leather palm had large tears in them. I wouldn't trust them for saving my hands falling at any speed.

I have Joe Rocket Supermoto now, they seem to be alot better made, but they aren't as good at keeping your hands ventilated

If you don't get a set of racing type gloves and you go down, they will not hold up so don't waste your time or money.

I am tired of seeing people with dirtbike gloves on the street thinking that they will protect them. It may protect from a 5-10mph fall but anything more than that and you are asking for pain.

In my first year of riding (not knowing the proper safety gear to wear),
I went down with dirtbike style gloves on and it took the skin off my palm and took the skin off of all of my finger tips and ground down my nails. Lesson learned. All gloves are not created equal.

I have been down with other race type gloves too and no injuries to report as a result. Teknics, Alpinestars, Held (the best) and a few others are great gloves.

How did you enjoy pulling the fibers out of your scabs that melted to your skin?
