I have been rocking the same pair of gloves for years. They're so battered and worn the Velcro have finally given up and peeled off and the leather feels stretched and warped. The timing was impeccable. It was like the motorcycle Gods had known what I needed and brought Viking Cycles to me.
I am already a fan of Viking Cycles. I have two jackets from the company that I love. When the company approached and asked me to review their gloves, I was delighted.
To be honest, even after receiving a pair of their sporty and sleek perforated leather gloves to try, I was stubborn and tried to rock my old gloves and put off doing my review. Going on long rides as well to events I wanted to stick with what is familiar for safety reasons. Finally my gloves gave up and they had to be retired. It was time to bring out the Viking Men's Perforated Leather Gloves.
What was my Initial thought when I tried them on?
WHAT TOOK ME SO LONG TO TRY THESE MAGNIFICENT GLOVES?!
Fit & Fashion
Man, these gloves are so sleek, comfortable, and well made. They're similar to what I had been using but in a more fitted and sexy finish. These are men's gloves that I had gotten in small and I felt they look and feel great. Overall look can be great for men and women.
As quoted from the website, "the glove is made from 100% genuine leather with gel padded palms, velcro closure and perforated design for added comfort and ventilation. The glove has touch-screen friendly tips and to ensure rider's safety, we have added knuckle protection.
Something so subtle that I didn't think would make such a difference is the extra material on the inside of the wrist. The added length helps with tucking the glove inside my sleeve for a more enjoyable ride.
Riding with these gloves have been wonderful! I went from 108 degree weather to 54 degree weather in a day and my hands were fine. Be it in super hot or chilly temps, these gloves will keep your hands protected and comfortable.
I could feel the handle bars and grip with no problem and don't require too much effort to break in. The gloves claim to be touch friendly and I can say that it's true! My phone has a glass screen protector and it responded to my gestures fine.
Yes, I'm fortunate to have gotten these gloves for free in return for an honest review. And here's my honest review: They're on sale right now for $13 and I think they are way worth it for the price. I think they are worth getting at their full price! I think overall they're under-priced for the value they provide! They're great and I look forward to rocking these for many years and rides to come.
