good gloves?

whats a pair of good riding gloves? when i get sweaty mine bunch up towards my fingers in my palm and makes it feel like im about to loose my grip on the handle bars. Not to mention it starts to kill my hand after awhile with all that fabric in one spot.

Thanks

Have u tried looking into horse riding gloves?
Sounds dumb..But they are designed for good gripping and no sweating

I have tried them all. None of them will last a season but the better known companies do seem to last and work better.
Get some with finger and palm protection and don’t get cheap ones Fox was always pretty good with O’Neal being the bottom of the barrel

I've always had better luck with alpinestars leather gloves with kevlar pads. They cost about $100-120 depending on where you shop and last about a year.

I like Alpinestars but I was only thinking off road.
Do Alpinestars make a off road glove?
On the payment they are one of the best

I went through a set of Fox and a set of Wileys. Oakleys have lasted the longest so far, but they do look cheap. Leather palms and mesh outers with knuckle covers. If you have a buddy in the service you can get Oakleys for around $50. I don't ride much anymore but I put my gloves through h-ll in Iraq.

I like these, I know they are road gloves but I hate the mesh stuff. http://www.alpinestars.com/GPX_Glove...p/356708.html#

I have a pair of red and black Alpinestar gloves and they are made for off road but I also used them to ride my street bike and they are damn good gloves. Never tore or wore real bad and I still have them. My neighbor gave them to me for free too!
