Z1R 243 Gloves
- Premium goat skin leather
- Velcro closure for secure fit
- Perforated finger open knuckle design
- Lightweight single layer construction
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. If anything, these gloves run a bit larger than usual, but not a lot, so I wouldn’t advise choosing a size down from your normal, but if you are between sizes, I’d advise to choose the smaller.
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’d probably want to go down one full size in this style.
Our Two Cents
The 243 gloves by Z1R are a simple cruiser style glove. The leather is super soft and comfortable. The gloves have plenty of perforation and holes over the knuckles so they will breath really well in hot weather. The gloves closes with a simple Velcro strap tat the wrist and they are unlined.
These gloves are offered in two version… a full finger and a short finger style. The full finger glove has a plain leather palm and the short finger version has some light padding in the palm. See the link below to see the other version. :: Paul, 01-17-18
Note: The factory “bullets” say these gloves are goat skin, but the gloves packaging says they a re deerskin. I really can’t tell the difference. The hide feels thin, soft and high quality which would be consistent with either.
