Speed and Strength Seven Sins Gloves
This glove fell apart in 2 months with 1300 miles
I bought this glove 2 months ago and have ridden 1300 miles with it. My dad also bought the same glove and is showing similar wear signs. The areas where there are falling apart are on the palms of both hands and on the thumbs. Same places on each glove. I did not buy these gloves through Revzilla, but I now do all of my shopping on here. I would stay clear from this glove and check out some of the other brands on this site.

Great looking glove with awesome airflow but poor durability.
About 1 week into owning these a seem popped along the top of the glove leaving a large rip. I could live with that but now all the finger tips have fallen apart as well.
I'm now looking to buy another set of gloves. If these held up, for $80 they'd be a great deal. The offer an adequate amount of street protection. The palm slider is great, the knuckles offer good protection and the air scoop actually works.

Looks good, but doesn't hold up.
I did not purchase these through RevZilla but I wanted to post to inform future potential buyers. These gloves are a decent price and look good but after just 2 months they have ripped in multiple areas. The first rip was on along the seem on the top of the right hand glove. This gave way to the fact that these are not leather gloves. The tips of the fingers did not hold up either.
Now, just so you can have an understand of my use of them. Over the course of the last 3 months I have ridden about 2,000 miles. Immediately after I am done riding I put them in my helmet to store. I have not "abused" these gloves in any way, they just have broken down over a very short amount of time.
If you buy these, don't expect to get more than 1 season out of them.

I'm from up in the northeast and I'm someone that puts anywhere from 5k-7k miles on my bike each year starting from about mid-March through November and I saw these in my go-to shop and figured I'd give them a shot. I ride a '13 Yamaha R6 and I knew I wanted a more track inspired glove while avoiding a gauntlet going half-way up my forearm.
I've since discovered Revzilla and I don't go there anymore, particularly because they carry a huge line of Speed and Strength. I bought these gloves thinking they would be an upgrade from a light mostly mesh pair of gloves I had last season. At first glance they're great looking gloves and they would appear to be of the same quality as a lot of other gloves in the marketplace, think again. The top of the glove is made from what can only be described as cheap PLEATHER. I haven't even got 2,000 miles in this season and already the stitching is going on the throttle palm and both gloves appear to be tearing where they've provided the perforated "leather" on top of the hand (you can see the strands of fiber that indicate it's synthetic). The padding seems great, the gloves fit pretty well and they've broken in well. But, from a strictly value standpoint, even though they're only an $80 or so glove, they should last longer than they have. To top it all off the PLEATHER by the velcro strap on the right glove has completely torn and it would appear it's only going to spread. I've since moved on to Alpinestars' GPX short-cuff. For $80 I guess you get what you pay for, but there's no sense in going through 2 maybe 3 pairs of gloves in a season.

Better than I expected...Couldn't be Happier with my choice
I just received these gloves. 4 days shipped to APO(super fast!!). When I first looked at these gloves they looked pretty big compared to what I normally wear. I put them on expecting to be disappointed. They were a perfect fit(Medium)...I wear medium in everything I buy. I was afraid when ordered they would be big but they were perfect.
I obviously haven't broken them in yet since today was my first ride home with them. They are a little stiff even with a pre-curve in them and my hands were a little fatigued in the end. However, with a few more rides to and from work i believe they will break in perfectly and will be a fantastic glove for me.
The white and black looks amazing especially with my White helmet and White boots.
After I put some miles on these things I will edit and update this review. All I can say right now is they feel extremely well made, TRUE to size and awesome looking.
Wish Revzilla would have sent me two of each sticker as well (ZLA & Revzilla) so I could put one on each side of my bike. I like Symmetry.

a very good deal for the price. however, not even after a week of use, the stitches from the left middle finger started to come off around the nail area. the air flow on these gloves is amazing. i thought it would be warmer than my fox fabric, but it turned out to be much cooler than i thought and ended having frozen hands in the morning. should be perfect for summer though. features on the glove is very good. padding on almost everywhere. only uncomfortable thing is after a long period of wearing, my pinky finger would start to get numb a bit, most likely because of how the stitches were done that it pinches the pinky a bit (smaller room for the pinky). overall still ok, but definitely wouldn't buy again simply from the stitches that came off on the middle finger.

Stylish and protection for a reasonable price
For your average street rider, these gloves are a great addition to any gear set. The fit is great and the precurved fingers give excellent manipulation of controls. The armor in the fingers is adequate and the palm slider gives me a bit more peace of mind. The air vents provide some air flow, but not cutting edge; I have been wearing them in the New Orleans winter (40 deg F) on short rides and my fingers haven't gotten cold. On one longer rider (about 20 miles highway), the started getting a little chilly.
I absolutely love how these gloves look in black. Did I mention that I love the look? The stitching is great, but the craftsmanship could be a bit better, but it is nothing noticeable. I am very pleased with my purchase and would definitely do it over again.
