  1. This just happened when I put my 2 week old gloves on at the servo just now... This isn't supposed to happen :\ ...

    The gloves are Five RFX.



  2. Great quality....
  3. I think I'd be taking them back to the shop.
  4. umm no, they're poor quality.
    they used to retail in the states for about $60usd.
    now some importer is bringing them in and flogging them for about $300au
    nice looking gloves, but really just a cheap immitation of a race glove.

    take them back and exchange them for real gloves.
  5. So I've been had? Fffffuuuuuuuuu...
  6. could have been worse.
    imagine how badly they'd hold up in a slide.
  7. Warranteeeeeeeeee!
  8. You don't need to spend $150 to get decent gloves these days.
  9. I was thinking of getting their supermoto gloves, and then I read about seams coming apart... guess it wasn't just the supermoto gloves that have this problem.
  10. Doh. Was going to get some of their stunt gloves, they fit so well.

    BTW, found this on google!
