Thank you guys for the links! The problem I'm having is finding true CE 2 certified professional motorcycle gloves. Racer used to have some winter gloves that passed this rating, but are no longer offered. A*, Held, Racer, Dainese and others might state CE certified, which on the surface seems fine, but actually is a level 1 cert and fits into the category of "work gloves." That test only involves a short duration under an abrasion disk to measure abrasion resistance.
However, level 2 cert includes cut & impact testing, seam & stitching strength tests for blowouts, abrasion resistnace and other variables.
If you look at many of the product info pages for most of these brand name gloves they never actually state professional motorcycle gloves, required by the institute for certification, but leave it to the reader to make the assumption and imply it holds up to the test, when in fact it doesnt. There is some tricky marketing going on in the big name glove market for sure.
With the thousands of brands that sell CE 2 leathers, jackets, pants and boots why is it that none of these companies make Level 2 gloves? If anyone can point me to CE level 2 gloves I'd be super stoked!
