Glove review: Spyke SC308

1 of 1

Spyke SC308 Gloves, £69.99
Miles covered/time:
1000 miles/two weeks

What's good? The look. The white leather is eye catching, especially on the palm, and the short cut gives them a kind of unobtrusive, street-riding cool appeal. Once worn in they become reasonably comfy.

What's not? They're overpriced and they feel like two gloves stitched together. Poorly.

Spyke have started with a good, soft leather but the synthetic parts of the glove are abrasive and the finger/knuckle armour looks like it was cut badly and attached shoddily.

After two weeks the joins are already showing signs of wear. They're also a summer glove without ventilation, so you do tend to get a little sweaty in the heat. For £30 they'd be worth a go, but not for £70.

Rating: 2/5
