Roland Sand Dezel gloves review (£80)

1 of 1

What’s good about the Roland Sand Dezel gloves?

These retro gloves are dripping in quality and style. They not only look authentic, but feel amazing; the palms are so soft it almost feels like you’re not actually wearing gloves. The inner red lining gives them a ´70s retro flavour; I even love the single zip on the back of the hand. The embossed RSD branding is a nice touch. At £80 they’re not crazy money like some retro clothing, and the price is reflected in the quality.

And what’s not?

As they’re designed to be retro gloves there isn’t a huge amount of protection, just padded knuckles and fingers. It’s just about enough protection as obviously they’ve not been designed to be worn at speed or on track.
