Our Two Cents
About this sale and warranty: Held gloves (and other apparel products) are made by Held GmbH in Germany and have been distributed in the US for the last 10 years or so by Held USA, which is a small “mom and pop” out of North Carolina. In mid-December, Held USA announced they were quitting business. And at that time, we bought their remaining inventory of Held gloves in the US as a closeout/liquidation. Other retailers may also have some gloves in their stock as well but there has not yet been a new distributor established and therefore no more stock is currently available. We are hoping for the announcement of a new US distributor because we think they are a fine product line, our customers enjoy them and we experience very few warranty issues. And speaking of warranty, since there is currently no US distributor to inspect and repair/replace gloves as a result of a warranty claim, there is no way for consumers to exercise a warranty claim. We will of course still accept returns of new/unused gloves within 30 days of your order (just like any other product), but we will not offer any warranty whatsoever on any glove that has been used or not returned during that time frame. We are hopeful a new distributor will be announced and they will provide normal warranty coverage, but right now, we can’t tell you when or if that will happen.
About this product: The Held Titan gloves are absolutely amazing in person. No expense was spared in the design and construction of these gloves, creating the ultimate blend of comfort and protection. The kangaroo leather is supple, making for a very form fitting, comfortable glove which will provide excellent feedback from the controls. Perforations between the fingers and at the back of the hand are there for cooling, and a Velcro wrist strap and gauntlet closure keep the gloves securely in place. These gloves are cream of the crop when it comes to protection. A carbon fiber shell protects the base of the thumb and side of the hand. The knuckles get the carbon fiber treatment as well, which is covered with Titanium for even more impact/abrasion resistance. A finger bridge connects the pinkie and ring fingers, as the smallest two fingers are most susceptible to injury, and connecting them will protect them in case of a fall. Kevlar and foam padding bolsters the leather construction, but probably the most unique thing about these gloves is the use of stingray leather in key abrasion areas. Stingray leather is highly abrasion resistant, will not grip the pavement, and it looks really awesome too. Take our “View Larger Pictures” link above to see close-ups of these features; just keep in mind that these gloves look even better in person than they look in the pictures! For those that need the ultimate glove, this is it.
