Scorpion SGS Gloves
Good but Bad
The leather is very flexible, soft yet thick enough to provide track certified protection, air flow keeps the hands from sweating in just about any temperature humid or dry climates.
The kangaroo skin on the palm is AWESOME it doesn't slip even after 2 years of heavy riding.
I have had a few different brands of gloves some high end some low end, Scorpion I would put at the tip of protection the leather is thick, knuckle protectors are bar none ahead of any other brand with the super fabric and raised front knuckle protectors.
Comfort: these gloves feel like a 2nd skin so nice in fact I don't feel like I have anything on. Flexibility is absolutely perfect. My hands never get fatigued when I hit the twisty's. Two finger clutch and brake lever grab is effortless.
This is were I had to sadly take 2 stars off of the glove. The Kevlar stitching is to much for the leather ( R&D was out the door on this ) Any manufacturer should know you can't bind a material with a more tough material and expect both to last. The fingers separate along the seam not all the fingers. Seems to be just the index and middle finger on both gloves. This started about 6 months of wearing them, keep in mind I ride just about Every day and I ride pretty hard.
Online support is horrible they give you the wrong e-mail to contact them and any type of online support is Null. I haven't tried the landline yet hopefully It won't be more of the same.
I have two scorpion helmets and both are very good quality, looking at Jackets for a future purchase.

Scorpion take me money!
So, I'm a ladeedah italian gear guy. Full alpinestars gear and agv corsa...blah blah. Bought these because the price is amazing and I needed more summer friendly gloves. I was blown away. This is not a "for the price" review. They are on par with the other Italian brands for sooo much cheaper. Quality and fit is a 10\10! Don't think about it just buy them and you won't regret it.

These are very well made for the price. Lots of armor built in for protection, and they are comfortable. They are a little stiff at first but break in quickly.

These gloves ate excellent and provide a lot of protection for the cost. Some slight discomfort from where the scaphoid protection hits my hand grips, but resolved with addition of foam grip puppies.

Good for the $$ need break in but fall apart too.
I got these gloves on closeout so the price was right no arguing there. The gloves were very stiff the first 10 times I rode with them and they can cause some soreness to your fingers. I have been riding with these gloves for 3 months now and the seam on the index finger for my clutch hand already opened up. Besides that I am happy with them just know you're going to have to break them in and the seams may open up on your clutch hand.

Awesome product for the price
I went with the sizing chart in the comments rather the chart in the product page. I found it to be better, accurate and vetted by other patrons.
This is being used currently in India. The weather is around 43 degrees C or 105-110 degree F. I'm still very comfortable in the gloves. It has behaved well during the monsoon as well. Wish it had those grip nodules on the palm.
I ordered a size small as I measure 8.5 around the palm and They fit like a 'glove' :-P
I got a free set of decals along with the Gloves ... so its a win win. The Revzilla went on the windscreen. THANKS FOR THE GIFT.
Unlike my probiker these are not road use and are very technical... they have a very agressive pre-curve as you can see from the pictures. It will be that straightening your fingers will be a problem. I have to stretch a fair bit to get to the horn. Otherwise I think its fine.
Been using it for about 3 months now. The gloves streched for as much as they need to now ad fit is immaculate. The thumbs are bit small for me but is forgivable as these are not custom made. The two niggles I had
1. The leather near the TPS on the right hand has turned which like under duress. Concerned as to, if it would holdup in a crash.
2. The stitching on the Velcro is breaking apart. It is a concern as I do not have the means to put them back.
