These gloves are consistent with the major American based brands we carry such as FirstGear, Tour Master, Speed and Strength, 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 Cyntek gloves are pretty snazzy! I had the plain black for the photos we took, but now that I see the other color choices, I wish I had used one of those instead. Oh well, probably would have driven the camera crazy anyway. :) Just take the “View Larger” images link above to see the different color choices.
These gloves are pretty nice for the money. They have substantial armor on the back of the knuckles and fingers and a good portion of the gloves are made of leather for some abrasion resistance. Also, there is a patch of gel material built into the heel of the hand for vibration absorption and the pad will give a bit of relief if you ride a sport bike and bear weight on the bars for any length of time.
There are some nice stretch panels on the back of the hand which will flow a lot of air for summer use. Overall a nicely styled glove with some decent protection (not full protection, but decent though). The price is very reasonable too. Oh, and before I forget, the finger material works on my cell phone screen… perhaps an unintended feature that happens to be built into the leather. Nice. :: Paul, 04-29-15
