MotoGP Nitrous gloves

Does anybody have experience with the MotoGP Nitrous gloves? Thinking about ordering a pair but $85 sounds kinda funny for a full cuff glove. I want a quality gloves but do not want to pay a load for them.

My brother had a pair, owned them for about a week before he went down. They served their purpose w/ regards to protecting his hands, but he did have a nice size hole in the palm and lots of busted stitches. He has some Held's now.

I'm not a big fan of the Moto GP gloves.
For around the same cost or a little less you can get a good pair of Teknics that are comfortable and crash very well.

^what size? I usually wear size small. Got pics?
Thanks for the replies everybody. Not sure what I'm gonna do but I'll most likely pick up a pair of gloves from a local shop so I know they'll fit and I won't have to mess w/ shipping them back someplace.

i got a good pair of old socks with finger holes in them.. i'll give em to ya...

ok on the real... I only wear Thor gloves.. their dirt bike gloves work for everything... working on the bikes, riding the phiddy, riding the big bike, riding motocross. my .02

but they dont offer the protection that street gloves have... but they are comfortable and have good grip.

SV Mike. I've got a pair of the older Teknic Violator Pros in small you can have if you want them, they're in pretty good shape.
Send me a PM if you want them and I'll bring them up to the shop.

Agreed. I have a set that I have crashed in twice now and they worked so well and are so confortable I still wear them. Teknic makes bad gloves.
