Glove help.

Recommended Posts

So, i finally went to go buy myself some decent leathers as my test is next week.

Went to Heine Gericke, despite being very impressed with customer service, they had nearly no gloves to fit a very small hand.

I ended up going with a pair of supermoto octane alpine stars, which fit relatively well, except, they're not that comfy.

The stretchy ridged part over the second knuckle has hard stitching that rubs my hand and the hard main knuckle protector rubs a bit as well.

Any ideas on how to soften them up or should i just take them back and keep looking for a pair of extra small gloves (that i'm beginning to think doesn't exist.)

Thanks in advance guys, im getting quite desperate here.

Well, heine said to try them on a ride and see and if they still hurt, to take them back. Ive just ordered a pair of Stella Sp2s in extra small off a different site, so hopefully they'll fit a bit better.

My girlfriend had the same problem, she has small hands and found the hard knuckle armor didn't sit comfortably.

In the end we found these Joe Rocket Ladies Highside gloves, they are cut small and don't have hard armor - she loves them.


We got them from Infinity in Clapham

If they are uncomfortable in any way when riding, take them back! I have a pair of Alpinestar plain leather and when I started wearting them I felt the seam on the palm of my hand press when riding normaly. I thought it would soften up after a while and go away (as good leather stretches and adapts to your form) but on the Brighton run last weekend this pressure point actually made my middle finger go numb!

Make sure those gloves fit good! You will regret it on longer runs!!
