The first thing that struck me about these gloves was that for all-season gloves, they’re very light and offer great feeling on the handlebars. They really don’t look much bigger than many summer gloves, so I was curious to see how they fared against some of the bulkier gloves I have tested recently.
Furygan says that the gloves will keep your hands warm and dry without compromising your riding precision, and I would have to agree: they offer great grip and feel on the handlebars, and they have kept my hands warm and dry. The gloves are also CE-approved and have large knuckle armour and both leather and foam reinforcement on the palm and fingers for added protection.
The lining is made from brushed knitted fabric and for protection against the cold there’s a Thinsulate padded thermal lining that traps and holds body heat, and allows moisture to escape. The gloves may look thin, but they’re very well insulated; they also feel nice and soft on the inside.
The palm is 100% leather with comfort reinforcement on the top of the palm, where the friction with the handlebar grip is at its greatest. It works a treat; the grip is great and you can feel what is going on. The rest of the glove is a mixture of polyamide and goat leather.
There are two Velcro adjusters, on the wrist and the cuff, which help get the fit perfect and ensure that the gloves stay on firmly. The cuff also features a stretch panel for better fit, and so the gloves are easier to put on. The cuffs are quite long, which helps to seal all the gaps between the glove and the jacket to stop any draughts.
I have to admit that I’m really impressed with these gloves. They have become a firm favourite over the last few months.
