recommend me a good pair of summer gloves

as the title says

looking at around £70 but anything cheaper is a bonus.

seen a few nice pairs of short gloves, are they worth looking at/avoiding?

cheers

I bought...

some Dainese textile summer gloves a couple of years ago for 30 quid from my local bike shop.And looking at them now there really isn't much to them,as far as protection goes,the rubber 'fox head' logo and a little bit of foam across the main knuckle area is all you get.But they are good in the warmer weather and have stayed stitched up tight after thousands of miles in all weathers. Can't find them on this link,but plent to choose from.Best to just go to a shop and try a few pairs on and see what feels 'Right'.

Best fit

of any glove anywhere (for me) is Spidi's. Bit more than £70 generally but worth every penny. If they're good enough for Leon Haslam they're good enough for me!

race vent

cheaper version

:wink:

Personally,

I'd be reluctant to use anything that didn't a) cover the wrist area, b) have at least tough palm protection, for anything other than a slow bimble to the pub or shops. Some degree of knuckle/backs of the hands/fingers protection would be preferable. Think about what happens when you fall over or off anything, first instinct is to put hands out to protect yourself. There's plenty of vented leather or part leather gloves, many with kevlar or similar under the leather or other materials, makes sense to take care of something as delicate, easily damaged and vulnerable as hands :smile

Anything with only clarino type material or nylon mesh is only suitable for motocross/trials/mountain biking really, although some supermoto riders/racers choose to use those, I never did, even a slide on a kart track could go through them quickly. :upset:
Leather gloves have saved my hands on a number of occasions, most specifically on one badly laid anti skid surface (large grain grit, supposedly epoxy bonded to the road, except it was covered in the loose bits, unswept) not a high speed incident, less than 30 mph I think when both tyres slid out instantly, all my riding gear and several parts of bike damaged, the gloves were through the leather and down to the kevlar in a couple of places, those were Akito 
Happy hunting :smile

cheers for the replys chaps.
Im definately thinking leather with some decent protection.
But i do like the idea of short gloves, get a bit of a breeze up the arms, il probably end up carrying my normal gloves under the seat or in my bag anyway!
I guess im just going to have to shop around, i was just wondering about opinions etc or what to avoid.

thanks again

Summer gloves

I use RST Razor sport gloves. No insulation, just thin leather with extra on the palms. Very good value at £40 I think, and they keep my hands cool.

http://www.berik.co.uk/cat207_1.htm  like that but with more protection on the back of the hand.

£70 

I have only worn them for about an hour if that so far and they are pretty comfy as the only other ones I have a hugely thick winter ones.

I just bought these as a spare..... I bought a set before. Good quality, and nice feel to them. And, over half price.
