Cortech Accelerator Series 2 Gloves (Size XS)
Build quality was less than what I expected for the brand.
In my opinion, I thought the materials felt thin. This is compared to other gloves (Castel Axis) that I was going to replace with this model. The major issue that I did not like about this glove was the fact that the molded knuckle protection didn't cover my knuckles. The protector was sewn in too far back to fully protect my knuckles from an impact from the front / above.
To be fair, I do own a pair of Cortech Scarab gauntlets and these DO have the build quality that I was anticipating in this shorty glove.

Great airflow, fit is slightly larger.
First riding gloves purchased. Overall a great fit, good airflow. There are small vents just above the knuckles. There's definitely a break-in period so these are more comfortable. I fit a medium for leather gloves, but ordered a size smaller based on the product size chart.

very good value and feel
I got these gloves for our upcoming summer season in NZ and am a motorbike instructor so wanted something that will protect me, fit well , keep my hands cool and were easy to get on and off - cos i'm on and off the bike a lot between training sessions doing paperwork between etc. So far they seem to do the job, have a good quality feel, vent air well, are flexible, but seem robust enough should they need to be! very pleased with this product and just as described in video - thanks

these gloves are great!
these gloves look great, feel great, and are extremely durable. they have good airflow, awesome knuckle armor, and are really nice in the summer.
my only comlpaint is that if you wear them for exsessive amounts of time (like 10+ hours a day for 6 months), they will really start to smell bad.
i had to retire my pair for the reason stated above, but i found an upgraded version of them and bought those instead. these are twenty times more durable than the upgraded ones. the knuckles on the new ones are uncomfortable at best.

Great glove for the price asked, some durability issues
Used it for 2 years now, most o year.
1. At summer it gives great air flow while maintaining more than average measure of protection.
2. Great price.
3. Looks awesome.
On the other hand:
1. Bit small for size, better get 1 bigger size.
2. calf got torn straight away when not using the small tab.
3. Velcro at calf not holding up for long.
Used it for a long time, appreciate the low price and considering that it is a great bargain!

Cortech Accelerator Series 2 Gloves
I have had to pairs of these gloves and have been overall very satisfied with both. The first pair has lasted over a year with daily use. These gloves fit true to the size, however they do require some break in. The airflow is good making them great for the summer months and there is enough leather to use down to the low 50's.

Fingers are cut to inconsistently and stitching can hurt
Average set of gloves. Nothing special. The thumbs are cut inconsistent with the rest of the glove and seem to be cut one size larger. The stitching and padding on the inside can really irritate the skin if worn for any length of time. All in all, not worth the price I paid for it.

I was looking for a glove that was not too expensive but still provided and good amount of protection and was pleasing to look at and I think this glove is exactly that. It's not super flashy to the eyes but not ugly either and it has more protective features than most of the other gloves around it's price range. Fits good and doesn't feel cheap. Very pleased
