THE BEST glove.

I love my A* GP Pro's but they have been replaced with a model that neither looks good, fits nor functions as well. Also in Alpine Stars I have to order 3 sizes over, I wear a XXXL, sheesh. So my search continues...

I like most Held gloves and the higher end Cortech work ok. 

I guess it really depends on fit to me and that requires I put them on. I'm always wearing someone else's stinky gloves at the track to see what's what. And when I can make it to the annual International Motorcycle Show every couple years, I try em on till I find what I want and buy 2 or 3 pairs of the damn things. 

I too was searching for the "perfect glove".... I'm usually disappointed with the "A-stars" offerings as well. I happened to run into a rep for "Heroic" @ the IMS last winter. He's pretty small-time, but makes really nice custom leathers as well. I ended up buying a size 14, which is comparable to a XXXL (not sure what "jockey- sized" riders are buying gloves these days?) I wear a XXL in A-Stars..... Even the size 14 Heroic, are slightly tight? I hoped they would break-in with use, but haven't? Next time I'm on-track, I'm going to soak them in water, and ride with them. That should allow them to stretch-to-fit my paws. Give them a look. He's trying to get them out there for coaches/trackday riders. Great guy to deal with-

Oh man, I should not be allowed to shop online unattended. Just last week I bought some Racer 'Sprint' which I absolutely love...now for reasons unknown Ive just ordered Dainese '4-Stroke 2'. I refuse to hold myself accountable for this purchase, therefore I blame you guys.

Looking for the best street motorcycle gloves with CE armor? Then read our internet's most-detailed review of the Dainese 4 Stroke 2...

 

I would love to hear your review on the 4 strokes when you get a chance to put some miles on them.

anyone know where to get the Five SF1 gloves? 
 

sportbiketrackgear.com has them listed but out of stock in every size. All other retailers are from overseas.

What size? Fortnine has small and xl, gpbikes has large available. Your local distributor will probably be able to order them in as well

Check out Held Rodney gloves.  They have Kangaroo palms, ventilated backs, velcro wrist bands and knuckle protection, plus they're shorties.  They're my favorite summer street gloves.

Looks like a bunch of dealers in Canada (Victoria and Vancouver) guess I’ll wait till the boarder opens up again and go try them on in person
