Softening up thick gloves?

Recommended Posts

Just bought a new pair of Spada Force IIs. Theyre nice, but theyre so stiff they make my thumb ache and throttle control is a nightmare.

How do i thin them out and soften them up quickly?

There used to be a trick for this with old army boots

Piss in them and leave overnight

its up to you

failing that get some dubbin or similar and as korben says use them

or get some heated grips and place on full heat as mine have a tendency to try and turn to jelly like with that on lol

I wet mine using the shower then keep them on for an hour or so, using your hands normally. Or go out for a ride.

Softens the leather up and by keeping them on, they do not shrink.


I like this plan....ok, so walking around my flat with soggy gloves on is the plan for tommorow....excited!
