Arc-on Gloves

Postby rocket » 08 Mar 2018, 18:34

Bought a pair of Arc-on gloves for summer / track use.

I checked out there website measured my hand and went by there fitting chart. I was well within the measurements for a large glove however when it came through it fitted but in a gripped position my first finger hit the end of the glove making them uncomfortable. I messaged and they replaced them with the next size up.

When i tried this pair on they fitted my hands much better they were not baggy at all which i was afraid of and gave a nice tight secure feeling to my hand. However they were really stiff. I have spent 4-5 nights sitting watching tv bedding them in and they have got considerably better. The stiffest part is were they have added extra material for gripping on to the bars.

The amour seems very good with the upper part of the glove hosting all types of amour Carbon, force field and thick leather I'm guessing theirs more but that's what i can see. The palm of the glove is the opposite and with my hand in the glove I'm amazed how much i can feel through the glove. So far I'm impressed only down side Is the thumb. All the fingers are stitched on the out side to give a nice feeling in the glove however the Thumb is the opposite and i think to compensate they have made the thumb larger and its the only part of the glove that feels over sized its not massive but i can certainly tell a difference.

Ill stick more up when i have ridden in them Hopefully wont be testing there crashing capability's out

I ordered the red but had none in XL so did not want black so i went for the green. At least I will spot them

I got some of those too. They break in very quickly compared to most other gloves I have bought.

As you say, loads of feel on the palm but extremely well armoured on the other side.

Quite like the green, its a proper lerry colour. Seem to be picking the bargains before biking season, good idea!
