The Review

An affordable, lightweight and waterproof autumn-winter glove designed to bear the brunt of weather that post-summer has to offer for the motorcyclist that rides all year round. Good thermal insulation and great knuckle protection. Available in black only but in our view you don’t need a range of colours, one is enough and it looks great.

They take a few weeks to break in but soon become supple. They are designed for the cooler months and we were more than happy with the comfort and warmth they provided us during the autumn months in the UK.

The stitching and build quality is very good and it feels like a premium product as soon as you put it on, with a textile back and leather palm plus a rain wiper rubber to aid rain repellent from the visor.

We found the fitment to be small, you should order a size up but if in any doubt, go and try a pair in your local bike dealer.


Stylish, subtle and understated, we love  ’em! 



Current GBP price varies from £80 to £129.99 in the UK which offers really good value.
