Gear Guide 2009: Gloves

admin

The crew over at our sister publication, 2Wheel Tuner, compiled this glove guide from a huge mountain of gloves that they received. Each pair was fitted to check the comfort and many were taken out for a spin. The results? Some were good, others were great. Just be sure to let your customers know that (for the most part) any glove is better than no glove.
