Teknic Supervent Gloves
Great Summer Glove
I've had these gloves a little over a month now and they are awesome. They are very light weight and have great air flow. They have very basic protection on the knuckle, etc. but good enough for everyday commuting use. I recommend these gloves to anyone.

I believe I have "normal" hands but for some strange reason the thumbs are about a quarter inch to long, enough I can flap it over onto my thumbnail. The rest of the glove fits perfectly. Great quality stiching and feel.

I had to choose between these and Joe Rocket Phoenix 4.0 gloves. Teknic was about $4 cheaper and I thought they looked better. Could have gone either way.
I usually wear L in gloves so I ordered L and they fit good.
These should be perfect for late spring and summer.
Good design and function. It's early but they seem to have strong build quality.

take a size smaller
L on this is definitely a size large for me. I wear L on Alpinestars leathers and M on non leathers. I guess I should have ordered M for this model. Luckily, the price was acceptable.

Good Summer Glove for Picky Guy
I returned this glove once and continued looking. It was comfortable in some areas and completely off in others
They looked cool and the areas where it fit were great... But i'm picky so i returned it and continued looking.
After a long search and comparison for mid priced and satisfactory summer commuter gloves i decided to risk return shipping cost and ordered a size smaller (two sizes smaller compared to some other gloves. It fit great! Across the whole hand. A bit snug but broke in fast and very comfortable. Really great airflow, looks good and sits well.
As with summer gloves, the cloth parts get fuzzy where they come in contact with velcro and the stitching is not that great. Just clip some of the threads #not too close) that start coming out and it will continue looking good. For the price, i'd get another pair once i wear this one out.
I tried some more expensive gloves but on the whole the improvements did not reflect the boost in price... maybe if you go much higher.

Not Bad For the Money
The pictures gave me the impression these gloves were smaller than they actually are. other than that setback these gloves feel pretty well. You won't be dissapointed

Decent summer glove
It's been one season that I have been riding with these gloves and in summary, I really like them but doubt they will last more than 2 seasons.
The gloves are very light, breathe well, and provide great tactile feel. My only complaint is the apparent durability of the gloves. After one season they are showing signs of wear already, particularly around the wrist strap where the velcro on the strap often catches and frays the material on the back of the wrist.
I can't comment on the protection they might provide in a crash but they are a light summer glove and the leather on the palm area does not appear overly thick.

Great value glove
Lets cut straight to the chase.
Its a great summer glove for the price. It won't amaze you, but its certainly a step above other gloves in it's price point.
My only negatives is that the thumb is very very long and for me a tad bit uncomfortable (very nitpicky here) in the area where the palm meets fingers.. The glove itself is a bit larger than the size guide. Definitely American sized and not Euro.
