Teknic Violator II Glove
A lot of gloves come and go over the old transom here, and many aren't worth the life of the animal they're carved from. These Teknics, though, are quite nice. It seems nearly impossible to buy motogear anymore that isn't festooned with carbon-fibery Kevlar this or that and the accompanying buzzwords, and the Violators keep up with the Joneses in that department. Underneath all that, though, there's a beautifully sewn glove that fits extremely well, and unlike many of its bulky offshore ilk, gives back great control feel through tough-yet-buttery kangaroo palms. Those fingers are precurved, and so wrap naturally around your grips without bunching up, and the seams inside all 10 of our samples' fingers run straight; all that ever comes between you and yours, then, is that layer of marsupial-OK, two layers in the thumb/forefinger crotch for longer wear in that high-stress area. Comfort is sublime, right out of the box.
