Reviews & Questions
Initially I hesitated because these are oddly named 'short race glove'. I'm not sure these are the right choice for racing on the track, but they are perfect for when you need to throw on a short glove quick and easy, and want great comfort, terrific fit, and yet solid protection. And you're willing to pay for something that will last. When I showed these off at work today, a buddy of mine showed me his Held riding gloves which he's had for 4 years, and he still uses them every day!
One note on fit: this company doesn't use the typical S, M, L system --you have to measure your hand and then look on the size chart. For example, I'm an "8". This might seem like a pain but what you get in return is, in my opinion, a much more precise fit tailored for your hand. Be sure to measure BOTH hands though, because they are sometimes not the same, and then probably match on the size chart with the larger one.
Held is absolutely maniacal about quality, and it shows. Just look at the stitching and how precise and secure the seams are! From the second I put them on out of the box, they felt already reasonably broken in. The styling is nice, but plain: black or white. I read their web site and it says it takes 90 minutes of sewing to make one pair. They seem to have a good amount of armor without sacrificing any agility or comfort.
My single gripe is related to the velcro closure tab. They apparently got cute with the design and decided to make a little artsy triangle instead of a normal rectangle. I wish that the contact surface for hook and loop were a bit larger--yes it looks nice but I would rather have more security in that wrap. This is a pretty small ding however.
Overall, these are extremely comfortable, and they seem to sport a great number of safety features. Oh and by the way, I was concerned that the leather bridge joining the pinkie finger and the next finger would bug me, but it really took about 10 seconds to get used to, and I don't think it hinders my agility riding.
The gloves took very little time to break in and the feel through the kanga-leather is un-matched. Compared to my Astars GP Pluses and my Dainese Carbon Covers it felt almost like no gloves at all. This is probably my favorite aspect of these gloves.
The super fabric is awesome as well. It is hard to tell in videos, but the super fabric is actually quite flexible and comfortable to have on. I will be looking for this material in every pair of gloves I buy from here out. It is good good stuff.
After a couple hundred miles I noticed that the stitching on my right hand at the knuckle was coming apart. I contacted Andy at Revzilla who put me in direct contact with the Held distributor in the US. They asked me for some photos and some information and sent me out a new pair of gloves. It was one of the most painless experiences I have ever had.
While i am disappointed by the failure in my initial glove, both Revzilla and Held made things right and did so very quickly and at no cost. You can't ask for much more from a company than that.
The best thing about these gloves is the construction of the leather and armored components. Simply put, not only do they fit my hands like a second skin after 1000 miles, they're super durable. But the durability isn't all in the armor. Just wearing them, you can tell the quality of the leather means business. It feels like you don't even need hard armor.
Of course, the armor is excellent in it's own right. The knuckle guard is solid, and while the superfabric is new stuff to me, it sure is convincing.
I haven't had a chance to really test the airflow as it has yet to get above 80 degrees, but wearing them in 40 degree weather, they were significantly warmer than the S&S gloves I mentioned above. Based off of that, and the lack of more obvious airways, I'm giving it a lower airflow rating. But that's not why I bought these gloves.
Fitment is tight. I was right at the top end of my size, and it was rough pulling it on for a while. I have short fingers; but the finger length is almost perfect. Once it's on; it's fantastic. Getting it on was hard. Still is a little difficult, but not annoying anymore.
Faults? They're expensive, but that's more of a trade-off. Some of rubber on the velcro securing strap started to break off; fixed it with some super glue. Some of the velcro started to come off its strap; also fixed that with some superglue. Those parts are holding fine. The stitching dug into my thumbs during break-in; everything is fine now. These gloves really weren't that fun to break-in, but it was worth it.
Conclusion: These gloves aren't really a bang-for-your buck glove. They're expensive. There's not all sorts of fancy features to try and sell it to you. It has everything you could want in a short cuff glove for aggressive street riding.
You buy these gloves because your hands are worth money and you don't want to be afraid of going down. In fact, you'd like gloves that feel like they can go down more than once.
These gloves are the answer to the short cuff problem. You just gotta pay. I'll be buying another pair if I somehow have enough accidents in the next month to shred them.
It encompasses all the requirements and qualities I was looking for in glove for spirited street riding between 65-80 F. I went with the black in a size medium for my measured 8.5 hand which was a prefect fit.
In my evaluation of a superior street glove safety begins with the precise feel of my controls. The feedback is consistently excellent as is the range of motion and subtle air flow.
The quality-construction, materials and style is first rate. I would have liked to have seen a more substantial fastener-piece at the wrist but time will tell how it holds up.
The protective materials are well constructed and designed. I certainly have a confident sense about me when riding with these on.
Like most things in life excellent performance and good looks is the goal in the vast majority of equipment and "other things" that being said this glove in my opinion accomplishes this nicely. This glove is a welcome addition to my riding gear which I would recommend without hesitation.

Would recommend to anyone looking for a great pair of gloves for a great price. Going to stick with this brand from now on.
After about a month of use, I feel very satisfied and feel enough air on hot days through the side holes of the fingers.
I ordered a size higher than their chart following their recommendation for people with long fingers and I like the fit. It's also much easier to put on and take off when I'm sweating a bit.
The Velcro strap, while seemingly a bit small, works great and consistently without being bulky.
Looking forward to many great years with these great gloves.
