For me, I don't really mind the bulky TPU gauntlet since it doesn't get in the way and does offer some protection.

The Heroics are much slimmer in the gauntlet like the Helds.

Ive tried on a pair of HEROIC gloves. I have A* GP PRO's. I must say... the HEROIC gloves are much more comfortable than the A*'s.

that's the right glove - squeegee is only on the left. funny thing, as dumb as it seems it really does work.

i just left Todd a VM. i'll see what he says.
Ahh, makes sense.. Don't wanna take your hand off the throttle going down the road.. :lol

I know Todd is at NJMP today/this weekend for the races.. I'll have to send him a msg on some custom ish..

Can't do summit on the 3rd. Next time at the track will be the last weekend in august with NESBA @ Beaver. I'll probably do the weekend after that at Nelson as well.
You really should come out to Beaver and play. Great track.
Ah, I'm pretty sure I asked you in another thread.. my bad! :lol

Memory loss from getting old!

Well, I'm just back from the track and these gloves are seriously perfect. From the first session on the track when I tucked in behind the screen I was like, "ah, these things feel like home".

Everybody who tried them on was blown away and couldn't believe how comfortable they were without any break in.

After a bit I tried on some Astars again for comparison and they felt clunky.

He was at the races all weekend, but should be back now. I'd give him a call back in the morning, he's pretty busy these days. Trust me, you want these gloves! :fact

Just know this, if they weren't all that, I wouldn't be hyping them up. Heroic sent me their first set of prototype gloves and they sucked, bad! Four generations later, and with feedback from myself and other racers, I am blown away by what they've evolved into.

Gents, sorry, been away at the races and am now back sweating in the muggy heat of New York City. $185 was a racer promo I was running for the previous model. The gloves are $260 and full custom and extra $30. I will run a promo due to Lars feedback. $200 up till August 28th, "My birthday". all pics are on my facebook ' Todd McNabney ' 917.846.2671 These are full exotic skin gloves. Robertino Pietri has thoroughly tested these SP-R's
