Glove review: Mechanix gloves

What’s good? For years I have been getting annoyed with grubby hands from working on bikes.

All of that is a thing of the past thanks to these Mechanix gloves – as used by the Ducati MotoGP team along with loads of other top professional spanner men.

At £19.99 they aren’t expensive, they wash easily and they even make me feel like I know what I am doing when it comes to working on bikes.

For an extra £15 you can get the gloves with an LED light on the back of the hand which are very cool.

What’s not? Sadly, no matter how cool they look, the gloves have no impact on how good my spannering talents are.
