I tested these RST Tractech Evo-R race gloves (£99.99) over four months across 2000 miles.
Here's how I got on...
What’s good? RST Advertise their Tractech Evo-R as their ultimate race glove. It’s used by all their factory riders and comes fully loaded with racing features such as kangaroo palms, memory foam knuckle protection, double cuff Velcro closure, and a finger bridge. With over 2000 miles done in these gloves I can honestly say that they are incredibly comfortable, light, and offer great levels of feel and feedback.
The perforated leather and air vents keep your hands nice and cool on those warm days or during intense riding on track. They make a great road glove as well as a race glove and it’s clear to see why they’re RST’s factory riders’ first choice.
What’s not? With a lack of a thermal or waterproof liner they’re a glove designed for fair weather riding only. So you’ll need another, more practical, pair of gloves for everyday use.
