Best gloves

I need to buy a new pair of gloves. I ended up losing mine at Rogers crash site (RIP). I had some long spidi gloves and why were really nice IMO. I was looking for a replacement in blue/white and preferably with solid knuckles. Let me know whats good so i can get soem before the memorial ride

Held are probably the best... but too much $$$
Teknic Violator are probably your best bang for your buck. I had several pair, and crash tested 2 pair, 1 at low speed, 1 at high speed. In both incidents, I came out with all five digits on each hand.

Your gonna have a tough time finding anything better than those spidi's.
Theres a reason the top riders in the world use em you know.
Doubt you find any local though.
Just go up to Motorcycles Unlimited and try on some teknic's. If not, he can order anything else you want.

alpine Star MotoGp Plus. Very nice gloves and hold very well in a crash.

I have used them all...and my last pair are Held's. They hold up extremely well. More so than the others. But the teknics hold up great as well.
