These gloves are consistent with the major American based brands we carry such as FirstGear, Tour Master, Joe Rocket, 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
Cortech’s Hyper-Flo Air Gloves are new for 2020. These glove are made for hot summer motorcycling. Both men’s and women’s glove sizes are offered (take the link below for the women’s glove).
Last week, I reviewed the Sonic-Flo Gloves which are also new for 2020. Both gloves serve the same general purpose… street and sport riding in hot summer temps. Both styles are immediately comfortable to wear and offer pretty good protective features. The main difference is that this glove has a substantial rubberized knuckle protector piece where the Sonic-Flo’s knuckle armor is a glossy plastic over carbon fiber protector. Personally, I like this rubberized version a lot. It feels substantial and is a bit less “racy” than the carbon fiber glove. And it’s a few bucks cheaper too!
The insides are lined with soft slippery fabric on the top side of each hand and the palm is unlined which is a good combination because you get the padding of the liner to make the knuckle armor comfortable, but you have great feel for the controls on the palm side. The top side of the hand has panels of mesh fabric so air should come right through and make these gloves suitable for warmer weather riding.
As inexpensive summer/sport gloves go, you really can’t go wrong with this one… it’s a bargain! :: Paul, 05-26-20
