Spidi STR-3 Vent Coupe gloves, £84.99
Tester: Andy Davidson
Time tested: Three months, 2500 miles
What’s good? The STR-3s are a decent pair of lightweight, warm weather gloves. The mesh panelling lets in plenty of air to keep my hands cool on hot days. They come with knuckle protection and reinforced padding - including additional protection on the palm. The gloves are comfortable on long journeys and the short cuff makes them ideal for warm weather riding, they allow plenty of air flow and I don’t have to faff around with jacket cuffs.
What’s not? £85 for a pair of summer gloves is expensive, but you get what you pay for, and while these are ideal for warm weather they are made with thick leather and feel like a premium pair.
