My boyfriend is obssesed with motorbikes; I think it's actually the only thing he is interested in. Therefore for his 18th birthday I've decided to get him so new motorbiking gloves. But... I'm not really sure what I'm suppose to look for. My budget is up to £80.

Preferebly suitable all year round and waterproof, as it often rains here, and he moans all the time that his hands all absolutely freezing.

I looked around the internet and found these:

What do you guys think?

:eek: gore tex gloves for £80!
i might get some :beard:

held are a well known brand, so there not going to be bad, though ive got two comments on them:
- some people prefer hard knuckles, so it depends on what he has already and if they do (i only have hard knuckle gloves, whereas Juno's are not)
- fitting is important with bike gloves, and some brands just dont match some people's hands (as each finger needs to be the correct length or it just gets annoying, so it may be worth giving him a token thing with a note saying that youll get him these gloves, but he'd need to come to the shop to try them on. or you could buy some making sure you can exchange the size (most shops should let you as long as you explain this).

I don't think his gloves have hard ones. Mine have and he doesn't like wearing them.
I've look at the website and they accept returns and exchanges. So I should be alright, as shops near me don't have these gloves.

So do you think these are worth buying, or would you suggest any others?

id go for it, other options would be to get some handlebar muffs (tocarno urbano ones are the only ones worth getting and about £30, or heated grips - though these can be more expensive and harder to fit)

Muffs (i know the're on a scooter but they work on bikes too, honest )

tbh though, the gloves are probably the best bet.

my winter gloves were about £80 and have been waterproof and warm for a year so far

Crashed it back in November, I was in hospital for a bit but no permanent damage!

Everything else is pretty much alright I think. I've already replaced quite a few bits.

Cheers for the link, I'm currently fairly close to london, won't be there for much longer but it shouldn't be too much of a drama to pick it up.

I am trying to get my twin daughters to learn. The Camrider near here seem very good and have a winter offer of 2 for 1 if you can find a friend to train with.

I'm only going to have the money to do it in April, I'm assuming they'll have plenty of business and not want to do the offer then though :/ I've messaged them asking that though so I'll wait and see what they say...

Sorry to hear about the SV....

And on the gloves front, I have Alpinestar Goretex Gloves (can't remember what model...) but at the end of the day I usually find that muffs do a pretty decent job, especially when combined with heated grips. Its just like operating the handlebars within a nice cosy warm place as most of the wind gets deflected, and most of the heat is contained within the muffs. Just dont have the grips on too hot...
