Our Two Cents
The Icon Overlord Long gloves are a great option for a high quality, full gauntlet glove that will provide ample protection and tons of ventilation for hot weather use. While these may not be quite as substantial as a full blown race glove, for track days and agressive street riding they should perform quite well. There is thermoplastic armor on the wrist, as well as over the knuckles on these gloves. The palm also features Pittards leather overlays which are tough without adding a lot of thickness to the gloves. The palm of these gloves is nice and soft, which should provide a good feel for the controls. The fingers have external stitching at the base, but the tips of the fingers still have a seam on the inside that could be felt. Where these gloves will really shine is during hot weather use. The gussets between each finger feature a breathable mesh material, and there is plenty of perforation around the gauntlet and at the back of the hand. The molded knuckle protectors also have little ram air scoops that will feed air directly to your hand.
