Joe Rocket Speedway Gloves
nice style but with downsides
slide from my bike a month back with this gloves. the rivets part all broke off and the layers got torn and exposing my palm. wouldnt recommend for long rides or sport. more of a gloves for short rides around town.

Great low cost gloves
I am a new rider and just started getting all of my gear so I was looking for something on the less expensive side to get started with and these gloves were perfect. The leather is good quality and it has decent venting. I unfortunately did have a drop while wearing these gloves and they did their job exactly as they should the palm skidder on one of the gloves did get a little torn but apart from that the gloves almost had no damage and neither did me or my bike thankfully.

Cool Style, Great Fit, and Good Protection
I really like the styling of the glove. The exposed molded knuckle guard looks cool. I would add that, It fits really well across the knuckles. The finger length would easily accommodate long fingers. The length doesn't interfere with the fact my fingers are short.
A big Pro for these gloves is flexibility. I use them even while riding my bicycle. Another Pro is the extra padding at each joint.
Cons? Not sure. I think these are a good around glove at any level of experience.

I've had these gloves for a year. The over all fit and finish was good, But those rivets on the palm didn't really offer much since when i went down the ripped out. which ripped the glove and left my skin to slide on the pavement. The next set of gloves i buy will have a proper palm slider

Great everyday glove with quality features and materials
"I love these gloves. I've had them for years and just got around to reviewing them. They are comfortable, high-feature everyday wearable gloves. I've been very impressed with all of my Joe Rocket gear. They come in as a mid-low price brand, but they produce high-quality stuff. I have a mesh jacket as well as 2 piece speedmaster leathers for track day- all great stuff."

Awesome gloves for a reasonable price.
I'd been looking for a pair of gloves with a hard knuckle protection but everything I found was out of my price range or reviews said they didn't last past a few rides. I've been using these gloves almost daily for the past 3 months and they've been holding up. Lucky enough, I've not had the misfortune of having to test whether or not they will withstand a high speed fall, but at slow speeds, these gloves can really save some skin.

Bought this glove for use with no prior riding experience. Glove looks good, fit well. Dumped the bike going about 15 and the glove provided good protected for my palm.

Looking for gloves with some palm protection...
... and these deliver. They seem well built, are comfortable right out of the box, and breathe well. They offer knuckle protection and have rivet-like protection on the palms. Having one fairly low-speed get off a while back, I'm more conscientious of decent protection, but have a hard time justifying the high cost of many gloves that don't seem to have even minimal protection. I was surprised with how few gloves fall between the cheap models and high-end. These seem right in the middle. They allow enough dexterity to feel switches and helmet releases while still offering a good amount of protection. Great bang for the buck!
