Spent the last couple of days ducking into all the bike shops in Canberra, and my final verdict is that the gloves they offer are bloody terrible! Either cheap nasty crap with plastic fake carbon fibre stuck to them, or cheap multi coloured rubbish. The worst part though, every single brand seems to be a totally different size, I varied from an XS in one brand, to XXL in another. Keen to buy some better quality gear online, but at this stage have zero confidence in sizing. Any tips for buying some leather gloves with armour? Wouldn't mind something like the Icon 1000 gear with D30 armour.
