Glove review: Teknic Violator

Teknic Violator Gloves £99.99
Miles covered/time:

What's good? I won't have tested these properly until my hands lash the carriageway after my next off.

But what I can say is I'd be pretty happy to do it in these gloves - chiefly because of the eight carbon inserts on the back of the hand and two chunky plastic bumpers coupled with Kevlar lining on the heel of the hand.

Details like that and the supple Japanese leather are masked a bit by the generic lairy race-glove design, but they give me confidence, and they're very comfy.

What's not? At £100 for the Violators, the longer-cuffed, kangaroo-palmed £130 Speedstars are possibly better value.

Rating: 4/5
