    Re: SPARTAN GLOVES: Review and Experiences

    Guys I have got a budget of 2.5k for riding gloves and mainly they would be used only in the city.
    I have shortlisted aspida phaeton and cramster dash. I really liked the solace blaze but just couldn't find the right size.
    Please help me out

    Okay thanks bro, I'll surely check the store out

    i have recently bought ASPIDA gloves ( don't remember the model name) in small size. they fit me perfectly but the thing is, they are very hard ( pure leather) pinky finger hurts while riding and finding it difficult to handle the clutch with gloves on, i feel my riding style has changed a bit when wearing the gloves. it has good padding on the palm stretched till the pinky finger with extra protection. I tried to break them by wearing for rides, but not able to ride with them for more than 10 mins. any suggestions. they are not gauntlets or touring gloves. they are for city riding. i will post the review soon, but any ideas on how to make them work for me.

    they are taking more time to get used to and feels like hard to break.

    Didn't happen to me yet. Touchwood.

As long as it doesn't hinder in your riding and doesn't give you pain or unease it's okay. You shouldn't worry about losing grip over the levers.

My fingers are definitely shorter than the gloves, in that there is some space still left in the gloves after I wear it and I also feel like my palms are also not wide enough. The store guy had said that tiny space left in fingers is OK and would leave some breathing space for nails to grow. The space is not much just a tiny bit from my finger tips, but I'm afraid if this will make me slip from the levers or something. Im waiting for delivery of my bike, so have no means to verify either. Do you think there will be problems if the glove is not snug? Also I don't think spg have any size smaller either. So I don't think there is any scope for a swap. Funny thing is that I was having a hard time getting inside the xxl size mt helmet but even the smallest glove they have is still big for my hands. Please guys, any help is much appreciated.

    Re: SPARTAN GLOVES: Review and Experiences

    Hey Everyone,

    I am looking for a pair of gloves to buy next month or so about the time I'll get my RC200 (booked.. still waiting.. damn the waiting period..) so I got some time to save for the accessories.

    So back to the topic, I do not see the Spartan Centaur listed on their website.. so I'm not sure whether to pick it or not.. However, I'll be driving in the city only. Maybe.. just maybe take it out on the highway for a day.. so seeing the online and something to go with the Helios (orange) I'm looking at the Phaeton, what do you guys say?

    there is no need to buy separate summer and winter gloves in India as the weather we come across are not extreme. Instead invest in a good pair of gloves, and in winters buy and inner warm liner to wear inside the gloves ......... those winter liners are easily available in the riding gears shops as the winters arrive.

    In case you are not able to pick up a SPG Ares, you may also look at Zeus and Rhino .............. they have been lauded for the quality as well
