    Royal racing core

    661 Raji


    I have both, and they are great in Las Vegas and also worked great in the humid climate of Korea

    Ive had pretty good luck with the Giro gloves holding up well and not too hot depending on model. I usually find them on sale at Jenson.

    Really like the Endura gloves. Pretty ok for a moderate climate spring/summer/autumn, good ventilation, good protection, good grip and smartphone proof. For wet winters i need something else

    U looking for full-finger or cut-off gloves?

    I had been searching for a nice lightweight full-finger glove for summer. Most were to thin with minimal protection or thicker ones with protection that felt like they'd be to warm for summer. Then I came across the Giro Zen gloves at my local PerformanceBike. They were exactly what i was looking for. Light weight, medium padding on backside, & breathable. Only disappointment was that they only had Yellow in stock. luckily 2 weeks later when I stopped by they had em in a cool black/grey/orange color scheme. Done.
    Later I found out that amazzon keeps them in stock for a good price so I think im gonna order another in a diff color to have one for MTBiking and the other(cleaner) for road/trail rides.

    I have a couple pairs of hand ups and several 661 Raji's and I must say I like the Raji's more. The handup gloves don't breath as well as the Raji and the fit isn't as form fitting. Also Rajis are durable, I have a couple pairs they are a few years old and still going strong, can't speak for the Handup gloves long term durability as I've only had them a few months but so far so good.

    I actually go to the local MotoX shop to find gloves. Typically less expensive and a better selection.

    I second this. Getting harder to find, though.

    2nd this, been using their Divide and Launch gloves this year. Lifetime warranty on all PI items including gloves means I'm not worried about them falling apart, which seems to happen to a lot of the other gloves I've used.

    Buy a few pairs and rotate them. This will keep them fresher and allow them to last longer.

    I also am a fan of Rajis.

    over the years i've been happy with raji, dakine concept, the newer fox attack and the 7 protection transition glove.

    keep in mind i hate wearing gloves so these are really unobtrusive imo.

    Fullfinger, most breathable and reasonably durable
    OK

    Tasco double digits are plenty cool for me but if you want even lighter, tasco recon. Tasco makes my favorite gloves hands down.
