Gauntlet Suggestions?

Looking to upgrade my street gloves to some gauntlets, expecting to spend about 150.

So far I was looking at:

Alpinestars SP-1

Scorpion SG3

Liked the Scorpions because of the palm sliders, but never owned any scorpion gear. Like the SP-1 because all the rest of my gear is A* lol. Any reviews or suggestions?

Knox armour gloves I liked I have been using for about a year and I got them for $99 worth def worth $99. But bluepine has racer gloves, that's the name I believe they have armour on there from Knox and I like his gloves a lot my next pair which is soon will ne racer gloves. Ty howard wears them to if im not mistaken

You don't ride enough or don't wear them often.That's to long for any glove.

I would suggest you look for a pair of HELD gloves. You may have to be patient or even buy gently used.

After MANY years of riding and MANY pairs of $150 gloves that never last more than three-four years, I am still kicking myself for not buying Held gloves earlier.

EDIT: http://stores.sportbiketrackgear.com...oves+Home+Page

Evo-thrux gloves are down to $170 if they have them in your size. Just a bit more, but the quality is top notch.

They were black but have turned gray but all the stitching is still good and the armor's intact. They've been crashed in twice. I put 25K on the busa the first year I had it.

I have had some quality issues with the stitching on a couple of pair of Held gloves. I am currently wearing Knox Handroid gloves.

the $99 knox gloves lasted about a year, i dont think i ever crashed in em but i know that i could use em anymore because they started to wear holes in the palms which sucked...

Recently bought the racer gloves though as i mentioned in my previous post, crashed them the day i bought them. they did very well, the weak point was the stitching of the gloves, idk how hard i hit the ground.. haha but im going to use them for at least one more crash before i need another set.

Held gloves I have heard a lot of good things about them
