These gloves are consistent with the major American based brands we carry such as FirstGear, Tour Master, etc, so hopefully you’ve had some experience with buying gloves and can choose based upon the fit of a previous pair. If you have no previous experience with glove sizing, go here for help.
Just as an FYI, you may have previous experience with European designed brands such as Alpinestars and REV’IT! which run about one half size smaller, size-for-size, than the American brands. It is not a universally true fact, but generally holds for most styles. So if a particular size in either of those brands is roomy on you, then you may be able to go down one full size in this style.
Our Two Cents
These Joe Rocket Speedway gloves are a pretty nice glove for the money. They offer some good impact protection and are made of leather for the most part, so there will be some abrasion protection as well. The knuckles are covered with a wide sturdy carbon fiber protector that is very comfortable to wear (padded well on the underside). The gloves also have some rivets on the palm area to encourage a sliding motion should you hit the pavement and also give a bit more resistance to wear-through. Higher priced gloves will offer a molded plastic “slider” for this purpose, but heck, for the price, it is better than no additional protection there. The wrist closes with a a simple Velcro strap. The only nit I’d have to pick on these gloves is that the aforementioned Velcro is kind of aggressive and will snag the meshy material around the wrist if you are not careful, so try not to do that, or eventually you’ll have fuzzy mesh wrists! There aren’t many sporty gloves in this price range so these are a pretty good deal. :: Paul, 10-24-13
