Just wondering if anybody is wearing the Held Titan gloves? I know they are a lot of $$ but are they worth it or overkill for street riding? I've heard the Kangaroo leather holds up better than cowhide so maybe they will last longer and justify the price.Thoughts?

I have a buddy that has them, he says once you own them you wont even think about buying anything else ever again. He loves them.

Thank you for the reply.If anybody cares,I talked to Brian Van over at Sportbiketrackgear.com today and he told me these truly are the best gloves out there and he has worn and raced with all the best gloves.So maybe I am just buying in to the hype but he also offered me a nice discount so I ordered a pair.

I have a pair of Phantoms which I would not hesitate to buy again. Yes it was alot ao $$$$ but well worth it. Especially if you go down.

I just put 150 miles on my new pair of Held Dark Steve(solid black) gloves yesterday. Size 10(XL) fit perfectly with no break-in needed and the quality is outstanding. Kangaroo palms and Pittard leather uppers. About $112.00 from NewEnough with a 10% off code.

held gloves are the best IMHO, I had a pair back in the day and crashed in them like 4 times on the track and never had any problems with them they held up great... and saved my hands... I was gonna get them Titans but after doing a little research Id just go with the Phantoms... just as good and will hold up to many many crashes, Phantoms will be my next pair of gloves, Ok i can admit it I have a little problem with buying gloves LOL what can I say LOL I love my gloves.....
