These gloves are great right out of the package. The leather is extremely soft, not bulky, great padding and protection.
Not thrilled about closure. Looks like a golf glove, but fine under a jacket.
All in all a great glove for a very good price.
Would definitely purchase again.
They fit well. I really appreciate the features and style. The plastic connector to the velcro is quite delicate. Through very normal opening and closing, part of the plastic broke less than a month after using them. It still works but disappointing after so little time.
I would certainly recommend this product but be extra delicate putting the velcro on and off.
Lightweight, good ventilation, and decent protection
I was looking for a lightweight motorcycle shoe with decent protection and a good ventilation. The X-Zero seems to fit the bill. They are stylish, very lightweight and comfortable, and the protection features you could expect from a short shoe are there. Ankle protection on both sides, reinforce toe and heel boxes, and a rigid sole. The tongue has a pocket to tuck in the laces, which is nice, although perhaps a bit short of ideal. The best feature is the air flow. I like the style and colors. On sale, these are an easy pick.
I ordered the largest size available from Motorcycle Superstore which was EUR 58. I believe this was to be same size as a XXL in US size. Unfortunately when the jacket arrived it was too small so I had to return it. Although I was not able to use the jacket, it appeared to be a nice quality product. The return process was easy and I have received my refund.
As a newer rider I knew I wanted good gloves that would protect me in a low speed drop or anything like that, but as I have advanced, these gloves are competitive with the more expensive ones, great fit and good structural support where it's needed.
I've only ridden with them once. Size was a little wide but I attribute that to aerodynamically shaped feet, not the boot. Length was perfect. Nice looking boots, comfortable. For mid priced boots, I would definitely recommend them.
