Summer Riding Gloves

So what all does everyone wear for a summer riding glove? I just picked up a pair of AGV Flex-Gel Gloves, what are some other options?

My new gloves: http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com...106&division=1

Thanks,

I wear Joe Rocket Phoenix Gloves:http://joerocket.com/catalog/item.cfm?products_id=151

They seem airy enough for hot summer riding. Not sure how great they will be in a crash, to be honest they don't look particularly sturdy despite the molded bits. But for a sub-$50 gloves I don't think you can expect much.

A-Stars SMX-5 for the SoCal summers:

They are perforated leather and have vented "hard" knuckles. Not sure how they rate in a crash and I think they are really made for motocross, but they sure are cool (at least temp-wise) and cheap ($30).

Re: Summer Riding Gloves

I wear JR SpeedMasters in hot and cool weather. They are vented enough that they aren't uncomfortable in hot and they are warm enough in mild weather... I don't ride in real cold weather.

didn't know it was called "Violator" - wouldn't want to guess at what the other thoughts are that must be swimming in other peoples' minds!

Re: Summer Riding Gloves

I just remembered I have to go to MOTOSTRANO to pick up my gloves, for helping at Laguna Seca. I love new gloves

Re: Summer Riding Gloves

Personally I have a pair of old HELD gloves. Whatever you get, be sure it is good quality. For why that is, read this:

(I used to work in an operating room and heads, hands and feet are the most difficult bits to put back together.)

No longer hanging out here, sorry.
