AGV Sport GPR Racing Gloves
Great, protective glove!
Purchased these to upgrade my gear for doing track days this year. First off, they have a ton of protection. They have a pinky/ring finger bridge that will help protect your pinky from rolling over and under during a crash. The lower palm and outer palm are covered with stingray leather which is very abrasion resistant (should slide easy)--kind of looks like and feels like flexible plastic balls. The knuckles are covered with a metal knuckle protector. Beneath the knuckle protector is a piece of leather covered plastic that covers nearly the entire top of the hand. All of these features make the glove a perfect fit for protection. My only gripe is the break-in period for the gloves--it took a while to fully get the stiffness out of the gloves--especially, the pinky/ring finger region.

Great gloves... Loose alloy knuckle protection
Very nice, soft gloves. Amazing for the the money. I have had two sets both arrived with the alloy knuckle protectors loose. Not horrible but they would twist back and forth. These fit very true to size.

What an awesome pair of MC gloves!
I have never tried on a pair of gloves like this in 40 years of riding. Fit is great, comfort good, maybe a little warm on those really hot days. Protection uber alles!

Great Gloves, Awesome Price!
I only got to test ride these gloves on the street for an hour before using them for two track days at VIR. They fit great, very comfy, the Roo palm felt great right out of the box. I was a little worried about needing more break in time prior to going to the track, but they were fine, comfy all day long! I have another pair of AGV Sport gloves with cow leather on the palms and the difference is substantial. These are way better!
Definitely great comfy gloves, plenty of protection, and at a price point that is much lower then many other race/gauntlet gloves!

Super soft leather, fantastic throttle grip, cold day close your fingers together hot day open fingers nice air flow. Thumb is slightly too long. Right palm bunches up a bit but that may just be how I'm wearing them? Love the finger bridge 3-4, suberb construction! Worth every cent!!!
Oh and did I say super soft leather!!!

Kangaroo palm, good airflow, offers plenty of protection (that I hope to never experience)
Stingray hide on the heel of palm & gauntlet is a nice feature.
Imo a great glove under $200.

At first, these gloves seemed alright but after a couple months of use, the velcro on the wrist strap started to fall apart so I sent them to Motonation and they replaced them under warranty. Well, unfortunately for me, I experienced a low speed, low side while wearing my brand new replacement gloves. I’ve heard stories of some gloves enduring multiple crashes, but these gloves were done after one low speed crash. They did their job and my hands were protected, but I was surprised at the amount of damage the gloves sustained at such a low speed. For the price, I thought they would’ve held up better. I can only imagine what would've happened if I was going faster. I’m in the market again for some gloves, but I lost confidence in the construction/design of these gloves so I’m not purchasing them again.

Won't find better gloves for the price and quality!
These are awesome gloves. Just tried them for the first time in a 5 hour, over 100 degree endurance race. Ventiation is actually practicle and works. Padding and protection in all the right places using ideal materials for critical areas. I have always found flaws in craftsmanship or design in my previous racing gloves, wtih these, I can find none. Someone took their time to design these gloves, my money is he or she is a road racer.
