Maybe not available from a UK supplier, however that does not mean they are not available in the UK, Royal Mail, UPS and others do a good job of getting them to you (at a cost) :?

are you suggesting he should order these? Have you a pair? Are these worth taking a risk on?

£210+ including delivery, duty and VAT. thats a big risk for a brand that's largely unknown in the UK.

Just because you can order from the states doesn't mean that it's wise to do so.

In my considerable experience of riding in miserable weather, the very best things to use to prevent your hands from getting cold, wet and chapped up are...

Hand muffs.

I've been riding 20 odd years and sadly only cottoned on to these a few years ago :hammer: . I currently wear summer racer gloves all year round, wrist deep in muff.

That price is a little bit above my budget at the moment. I have ordered some Richa cold protect ones.

And once my bonus from work goes in at the end of the month i am gunna invest in some Oxford heated grips.

The issue i have is 7-8 year ago me and the ex kept huskies, we rescued one who was an absolute nightmare. Long story made short me and the ex broke up a dog fight with 2 of our other dogs, the looney dog we rescued took a chunk out of my left hand very badly ie 2 surgerys and 60 stitches later. As a result the circulation in my left hand is absolute horrendous.

If you want to know why a lot of folks pay £100 or more for gloves Google "motorcycle hand injuries". Not pretty viewing. Same applies for boots as well.

Plastic surgery on your hands is definitely not something you want to experience living with, for the rest of your life.

Merino wool thermal glove liners are very effective in keeping the cold out.

I was at a top speed event at R.A.F Woodbridge a few years back when one of the competitors came off at 170mph plus.
The following day he was back in the paddock apologising to us for holding up racing.
He had some bruises and a broken little finger from memory.
Someone said that as you have been down the road on your hands and knees if anyone says you spent too much on decent gloves just tell them to do one !
By the way Ken is still attending and competing in top speed events
