Alright, so here's where I am on these gloves now--

I don't think I'd want the inner glove/liner attached to the outer leather. I have largely adapted to them, and they're working well for me. They don't let me have anything like the feel of my Spidi gloves (STR-1, so nothing super-fancy), but I haven't reverted to wearing those Spidis, so that is a pretty good indicator that these gloves are worth the reduced control feel.

The bunching I experience isn't really in the palm, it's under the first knuckles (where the fingers attach to the palm). I'd also like more pre-curve, but I believe that this issue is primarily a consequence of having what amounts to 2 gloves on. To give yourself some idea of what this feels like, put on some thin to medium-thin knit gloves, and then put your riding gloves on over them. Not quite the same thing, but it gives you an idea.

The fit on these gloves is extremely good. Better/more consistant than my Spidis for sure. I have some Joe Rockets that are actually a little better, but they're a mesh with a thin leather palm; hardly a protective glove like the HighVelocityGear gloves are.

It's 36 - 42F when I ride in to work right now, and although my fingers do get chilly, I'm not in immediate danger of frostbite or anything. Afternoons are 65 - 75, so of course no issues at that temp.

If I were to ask for any changes, here's what I'd request:
Some more pre-curve,
Just a touch more 'length' in the glove. I have stubby fingers, but they're right against the ends of the gloves when I strap the wrist retention strap, as are the ends of my palms. An alternative might simply be to move the retention strap a bit further 'down' the glove?
The velcro on the cuff needs to be made narrower. It interferes with the wrist retention strap velcro at present.

My next order would be for full-gauntlet gloves, so maybe I should ask: Do the Formula and Prodigy models have the same dimensions/fit as the Expedition Pro?

I'll take a pair of the XXL. I was in at the beginning but needed gloves sooner than later. These are the ones I really wanted though. PM me the payment info. Thanks, Jack

No, the Exhibition pro's were meant to be a short gauntlet...

Unfortunately, my stock is depleted. Hopefully, later this year things will change for the better...

I understand that. I'm asking about the fit and dimensions of the glove, not the length of the cuff.

So, is a 10" measurement a large or
XL? The website says large.

Hello,


for the most part I'd say 10" is equal to a large but on the tight side....

are you over 10" at all?

9.5" but just checked my Alpinestars GP Plus (my favorite gloves so far) and confirmed they are an XL. Sounds like a L will be a good fit, though. Looking forward to getting them. Thanks.

Just thought I'd put a bug in your ear for a waterproof pair of the most protective, comfortable gloves around Get on it now, and they might be ready to roll for next year

I've got about 500 miles on mine and love them. They just keep feeling better and better. The only change I would make would be to lengthen the smaller velcro strap and put a bigger ring on it to make it easier to loop the strap through. Other than that by far my favorite gloves.
