Winter Gloves: Moto GP Pylon

Postby fluidj » Wed Nov 19, 2008 1:29 pm

I purchased these last fall. Great gloves and New Enough has a few left on clearance for $24

They have worn very well for the first winter season. This should be my 2nd season using them and we'll see how much more they break in.
Personally I think they are an ideal winter glove. They are thick enough to provide a reasonable amount of insulation, but not so thick as to be cumbersome. Ideal gloves if you have heated grips.
Might not be enough insulation for you if you don't.

Ask me questions :)

They seem like a warmer weather glove with the perfed top but if you went last winter they sound like a good glove for heated grips as you say.
Newenough seem to have only XL and XXL left.
This is the kind of glove I have been looking for but not in XL. I have a pair of tourmaster heavy winter gloves. Nice but a bit bulky. I also like the mini face shield wiper on the thumb of mine.

Probably not purple :lol: But I imagine if you are handy with stitching you could get creative with some purple thread

Please.....My heating grips come on when the temp is lower than 55 :oops:
I don't own any heated gear, so these are it for the whole winter. Luckily the RT provides a little more wind protection though.
I've become a cold weather wuss this season though, I haven't been on the bike since last Wednesday... WAAAAAY too cold for me

The perfs are virtually non-functional. Not sure if it's the ergos of the RT or what, but I've never felt wind through even my summer perf'd gloves.

Same here as far as the RT. No heated gear, just good coat and pants. I have been very happy with the wind protection on the RT with keeping the cold off. I have ridden to work the past two days. It was a bit cold this morning.
Sorry, going off topic. I'll stop now.. :lol:

How far are you riding while wearing these gloves?

I KNOW i replied to this last week! Where in the world did it go??? :shock:
Typically only commuting. 30 minutes or so to work. Sometimes an hour long trip to Baltimore.
