Z1R 270 Gloves
- Premium goat skin leather
- Fully lined for improved comfort
- Impact foam knuckle protector
- VELCRO® brand closure for secure fit
- Padded palm with leather overlay
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. I’m noticing the wrist closure and the lower palm of this glove fits loose, so it will work well for those with beefier palms.
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
Z1R 270 gloves are a simple short cuff design that is offered in a plain leather and a perforated leather version. Either version is fully lined with a soft poly material.
A bit of armor is incorporated over the knuckles and just above the knuckle of each finger. The armor is hidden under the outer leather for a clean look. The protection could only be characterized as marginal though, but compared to a typical cruiser glove it is more than most provide which is a good thing.
The perforated version will be better for riding in hot weather and the solid leather version will be best for milder weather. Please take the link below to see the other version. :: Paul, 01-17-18
