Motorcycle deal - Cortech Adrenaline II gloves for $79

$79.00

Cortech Adrenaline II gloves. I have had Alpinestars GP-Plus and Helds Evo Thrux, and Rev'it! Gauntlet rain gloves before and these are by far my favorite. My favorite features in day to day use is the kangaroo palm, dual Knox hard sliders, double cuff enclosure, precurved fingers, and Kevlar stitching. I would compare these with Dainese Full Metal gloves but without the titanium hard parts. I've had these fire skit 3000 miles


http://www.motorcyclegear.com/str...loves.html

Here is the full list of features:

-Grade A cowhide backhand and gauntlet with perforated fourchettes (the material between the fingers)
-Supple abrasion-resistant kangaroo skin palm for ultimate in feel and protection
- Knox SPS® protectors on the palm help to protect leather from gripping pavement
- SuperFabric® material in the fingers, thumb and over the ulna (wrist) bone is abrasion-resistant
- Molded TPU knuckle protector has built-in flex capabilities for added comfort
- Dual molded TPU wrist protectors
- Inside of the glove is lined with Kevlar® for added abrasion protection
- Soft padding on outside of the glove with two layers of leather for added protection
- Dual gauntlet with a 360º full circumference wrist closure strap
- Pre-curved palm and fingers
- Pinky and ring fingers have elastic stitching, forming a fatigue-reducing pre-curve
- Flex panels in fingers help to reduce hand fatigue and improve dexterity
- Palm is reinforced with digital leather to help resist wear
- Double reinforced fingertips on the pointer and middle finger
- Extended leather shield offers added wrist strap closure protection
- Outer seam stitched palm and fingers maximize glove comfort and function
-CE approved

I think he meant 'poser'.

Anywho, these gloves look like an excellent deal. $80 Alpinestars gloves would not have anywhere near the features that these do.

I've had Alpinestar GP Plus and these are nicer in every way. These are even nicer than my friend's GP Pro

No a poster can't wear these. A poster is usually made out of paper and has no hands.

#cleverness fail

Thanks for the post, OP. Too rich for my blood but appreciate the insights you provide re: actual use/ownership and comparisons with other high end gloves.

Only available in XS, S, and XXL, which knocks out 95% of the market.

Thanks, OP was looking for nice gloves. I wasn't planning on spending this much but it seems like reviews and glove are nice. I will see once I get it. I am not planning on using it for racing but general riding.

Just a FYI, I bought these last month from them. They're this price because cortech no longer makes them. I originally bought ones in 2013 and were the best gloves ever.

When I bought these last month, the first pair weren't made correctly. The finger tips were too short and not wide enough, was worst on the thumb. Stitching from inside thumb to pointer was shortened, so couldn't really use the turn signals and my thumb would get numb after a few minutes. The leather also started peeling after 2nd ride. Had them exchanged and the fingertips were much better, but not amazing. They also started peeling as well. I contacted cortech about the peeling and they said it's a manufacturer defect and to contact the retailer. I sent them an email with the exact email cortech sent and still haven't heard back almost a month now.

I'd honestly skip these left over batches and hope they make an Adrenaline 3 or something.

You have bad luck, unfortunately. Mine has been faultless and I trust it to protect me. I buy what fits me best and am not brand loyal to any brand. This allows me to try many brands and see how they perform.

I guess if you get a good pair, these gloves are a great value.
