Scorpion SGS Gloves
Sorry to see you Go
Like butter, the fit is fabulous. Safety features abound. The review is: this glove is as advertized - and really sorry to see them on clearance. I came back to buy the same glove in White (own the black already). Their out - damm!
So, for anyone looking to get this glove at a $23.00 dollar reduction - get'em while the gett'in is good.
Pennsylvania, East coast weather: When winter gloves make you SWEAT & summer vented gloves make you COLD - this is the PERFECT glove.
I wear them starting sometime in March until sometime at the end of May > Summer gloves after that.
Then again in starting in September and into October > then winter gloves.

Not for a hot summer
I have bought them as there were listed to be good for the summer.
I probably different summer in my country (israel) because they are not good for our summer which is around 30C.
I some how thought that it will fit our weather but they are not.
I have cut the fingers in order to improve the air flow during the ride.

Lots of protection packed into this glove
I normally wear an X-Large in gloves. I ended up with the 3XLarge size in these gloves. They run small! I could still use a little more room in the palm width, but I'm hoping they will stretch a bit more. I love the slick lining material that makes it easy to get the glove on and off. It's thin and doesn't add warmth to the glove. Great for hot summer riding. Also lets them breath very well.

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.
