That's a serious looking pair of gloves Peter. Waiting to hear what you think of them. Forgive my ignorance but I've been wondering for a long time what's with the massive knuckle guards on sport bike oriented gloves? Can a guy actually drag his knuckles on a track? great looking gloves by the way.

Top shelf gloves mate. Enjoy. I haven't come to terms with spending that much money so I have the Knox Handroids which are great gloves for the money!

@Kllongbrake;
Yes that is what they are for. And to keep hand from getting crushed if the bike ends up on top of you.

I've been wearing Held gloves for years. Akira's and Phantoms. Two decent offs and no damage to the gloves or my hands. I will wear Held gloves as long as I ride.

Have never thought a glove could feel so comfortable just trying them on!I will going for a ride on Wednesday so I will let you no!I wasn't going to pay $450aus for a pair of gloves but after actually seeing them in person the money is justerfied!I paid $180aus taking a chance on size and if they were brand new and having contacted the seller I was 90% sure they would be legit and they were!I will buy Held from now on the comfort and protection out ways the purchase price!the Roo leather on the inner fingers and palm is so soft and subtle!I will post pics in a second

PeterD10R, how do they fit compared to most A-stars? What size do you wear in an A-stars glove? Thanks.

I am size large in A* and size 9L in Held!Ive used different brands but never purchased gloves that are the highest spec from any company!the feel these Titans have is on a level I have never experienced because dropping $450 on gloves didn't cross my mind!I was just to tight actually tbh!Im sure A* top spec gloves would of also changed my mind regarding the quality so I have been educated and converted

Peter what A* gloves have you run before? Im interested in this, I have a set of GP Tech A* gloves and theyre pretty well loaded with features for protection. Though I could probably do to branch out a little and try new gear and see ehat the world has to offer.

Sorry for taking so long OP I just noticed your question mate!Im trying to remember but I no they were not the highest spec A* like your using at the moment!tbh your Supertech Rs would have to be in the same quality and fit as the Held you would think!but I never considered spending $340+ on gloves but after using these Titans they have changed my opinion for sure!the amount of comfort,feel and protection is worth every cent!if you get a chance try a pair of Titans or Phantoms on the Roo leather is like velvet
