Martin, I am interested in buying a pair of race gloves. Can you take some pics, cant find any except for the one you posted. Do they have really good protection, enuff for the track in case of a fall? Are they comfy for long twisty riding on the wknds?

Thanks., Ruben.

They are very light and supple,and also very long;I"m a bit concerned about the quality of the stitching though...overall,a good buy.
Damn Martic, thanks for posting so many pics. Much appreciated. I see what you mean bout the stiching though. In the last pic the thread is coming off the leather. Also, those buckles, are they metal or plastic? Is their a chance you would scratch the tank when riding switchbacks? How long have you had them?

Thanks, Ruben.


PS, you got twisty roads up by you ot do you ride mostly highways?

The stitching is not coming off,it seems that they dont cut the ends of the threads...the buckles are plastic (small);no danger of scratching anything;I"ve been using them on non-rainy days since I got my bike out 3 weeks ago.

Highways?
I dont do highways!
I use short portions of them to get to my fav bits of roads.

Seems that if you go on the whitebuffaloracing website and register,they are a bit over $70...a freakin bargain if you ask me.
OK, not considering the price, which glove would you rather wear? The Marsee or the new Speedstar's? My main concern is protection, then comfort, then price....

Thanks, Ruben.
