Spidi Race-Vent Gloves
Spidi Race-Vent Gloves
The race vent gloves… the gloves are very stylish and look very good. The ventilation on the gloves set a good standard for summer gloves, almost the entire back of the hand is air fed by the gloves intake! The gloves go to the smaller side, so if you are Large then I recommend the XL. A great pair of gloves to have for the sizzling summer!

Great warm weather gloves with good comfort and features
Had a great buying experience with Revzilla.
I live in the tropics where temperatures are about 33 degrees celcius all year round with high humidity. It is very very hot here.
If warm weather riding is your thing, these gloves will do it. Ventilation is fantastic and I think is as good as it gets for a glove of this level of protection. You can feel the airflow, particularly around the fingers and wrist at speed.
Only minor comfort niggles are a slight chafing on my knuckles on my first track day with them, which i presume will get better with time as the gloves wear in. The leather on these guys is really supple for something brand new
Kind of wish I didn't get the black/white/red colour combination though. The white (mostly on the palm area, probably not the smartest place to have that colour) stains really easily. Keep that in mind when selecting a colour.
If you are after the last word in protection you could probably do better for additional cost but as far as ventilation combined with a better than adequate level of protection is concerned, you would be seriously hard pressed to do better

I wouldn't change a thing about these gloves.
I just got back from the three day track event for which I purchased the Spidi Race Vent and was more than pleased with their performance. While the titanium slider pads on the pinky finger were somewhat tight and obtrusive out of the box after the first track session they were perfect and you couldn't even feel them.....if this is something that may have scared you when you tried them on, do not let it keep you from buying the glove as it is gone in a few laps.
True to their intended design.....they breath better than any glove I have ever worn. As soon as you get up to track speed if feels like they have fans in them....
and are really really cool looking as well!

Lot's of Air-Flow
These gloves are butter soft, stylish and flow ton's of air. They are my first pair of Spidi gloves I bought them for hot weather riding and I'm very pleased with how well they work. They are the most comfortable gloves I've owned to date, the fitment is spot on. Great purchase.

Good for One Crash
I bought a pair of these because I love my Carbo Six gloves and I wanted a pair of highly vented gloves for those 95 degree days at the track. Like their name suggests they vent extremely well. Better than any glove I've had or had since. The glove is very comfortable even when comparing it to my Carbo Sixes. That comfort comes at a price though. I had the unfortunate opportunity to see just how well they held up in a crash last year and I was a bit disappointed. Aside from the palm showing extensive wear (I low-sided) somehow, the leather on the back side of the glove around the carbon crash protector ripped. That rip was a non-repairable area, so I was forced to toss them. With that said, I'd like them for commuting in the warmer months and for those really hot TDs/races when the Carbo Six gloves are a bit hot.

Spidi Race-Vent Gloves
Revzilla was the only place that came through with me on receiving this glove. I made the mistake of trying another retailer previously, who charged my credit card and then told me they had no idea when the glove would be in. After 6 weeks went by, I told the other retailer to send me a different glove. Thanks Revzilla for actually having this glove in stock and getting it to me in a timely fashion. The Race-Vent is a great Summer glove! I will definately be doing more business with you Guys!!!

A snug fit, but true to size nonetheless.
The more I wear them the better they form over my palm/fist.
The material is obviously top-notch. From the moment you put them on, you can feel the quality and craftsmanship. The stitching is superb. The leather - supple. No stray fibers or rough edges.
The protective pads are placed in the right places. Comprehensively as well. I couldn't ask them to add another someplace. They even protect your wrist.
The venting is also very good. These gloves flow a lot of air. very comfortable on hot Texas days. Especially with summer coming on.
I would recommend these to anyone interested in a glove that offers great feel, quality materials, and good venting. They look pretty sick too.
