Review Spada Freeride gloves 2999
Simple good ol fashioned leather gloves
THESE Spada Freeride gloves are the simplest set of hand-shoes I’ve ever owned, and the perfect accompaniment to the Hedonsita jacket.
They’re really minimal – there’s no armour, finger bridges or Kevlar stitching. Instead, the Freerides are a good ol’ fashioned pair of leather gloves with a Velcro wrist closure, just like what your grandad used, probably.
At a penny less than £30.00, the price is pretty minimal too.
They fit superbly, plus they’re comfortable and provide great feel. The single Velcro closure gives a nice secure fit and because there’s just the one strap to do up, they’re also convenient and easy to whip on and off without loads of faffing – which is something I really like about them.
The lack of armour doesn’t bother me too much, and isn’t something I ever think about… until a stone gets flicked up from the road and hits my hand, which always stings in these puppies.
I’ve used them a few times in light rain and while the waterproof lining has withstood, I found that my hands could still get wet because the cuff behind the wrist strap easily folds forward, which can allow rain to seep in.
Obviously, I wouldn’t wear the Freerides on track but for city work and maximum posing points, I’m a fan.
