companies like Speed and Strength are doing a great job of offering gear that
offers a high level of protection, using value priced materials in non-key
areas. Now to be clear, there is no replacement for premium materials in premium
product. And, if you’re going racing, you need premium product. But, this style
of build offers higher levels of protection to street riders with smaller
budgets, which I’m all about.
These Seven Sins gloves from
Strength are part of a larger line including an SS1500 helmet, a leather
jacket, a textile jacket, and casual apparel. They’re made of a combination of
genuine leather and synthetics, and are going to be perfect for the street rider
looking for an incredibly comfortable glove, that is going to provide a high
level of protection, at a mid-level price. These are the best fitting, most
comfortable gloves I’ve put on so far this season. And, at sub ninety bucks,
they’re a home run.
Let’s start with the palm. The base layer is leather, which you can see on the
fingers and throughout the thumb. The high impact areas are then reinforced with
synthetic panels and padding. The highest impact area is fitted with a
thermoplastic slider. The construction method that adds the most comfort to me
is one that is still relatively new to
motorcycle gloves and that
is externally stitched seams. You’ll notice, here, that all the seams on the
fingers are on the outside. Not only are external seams far more comfortable on
your fingers, but the gloves have a much more precise fit, are more flexible,
and require far less break in. While we’re looking at the palm, you can see the
elastic wrist band that is complemented by a mini gauntlet with a hook and loop
strap and a pad to protect your wrist.
If you flip the glove over to the top of the hand we can look at some more of
the clever use of materials. The high stress areas like the sides of the fingers
and the protective finger panels, as well as the piece of fabric that retains
the knuckle protector, are made of leather. The balance of the hand, like this
perf area with the branding, is synthetic. You get the higher end materials
where it counts, but again, under ninety bucks! In addition to the materials,
features also include ventilation in the knuckle protection and accordion style
stretch panels in the index and exclamatory fingers.
All in all, these new
Strength Seven Sins motorcycle riding gloves are an amazing cross between
the high end and the value priced in a killer looking yet highly comfortable
glove for the streets.
