I just finished a 1200 mile dual sport ride in Idaho and I love these gloves. They are much, much better than the MX style gloves I've used over the years for my dual sport rides. The leather road glove type construction in the palm area and the mesh type construction on the back is the best I have found. My only knock on these gloves is the sizing. I usually wear a L or XL glove and ordered a XL based on Racer's sizing chart. While they do fit well once they are on, they are very difficult to take on and off. especially when my hands are sweaty. This is not a problem for a race glove, just take them off after the race. But for a dual sport glove, where I am stopping frequently throughout the day and having to remove and put them them back on, this become very tiresome. Next time I'll order an 2XL and hopefully they will work better in a dual sport application.
