Scorpion Clutch gloves...
Hi, I know it has been a while. I have been dealing with a 117 yr old house foundation issues. Basement flooding, desperately needing sump pump and drain trench etc. I mean how else can you waterproof limestone walls, right? All you can do, at least what I have been told, was manage the water (divert it) hence the waterguard (trench tubing) on the inside of the basement concrete floor to a triple sump pump system (main pump, backup pump and battery backup pump). I know, overkill, but it is guaranteed for life of the house, as long as I get it serviced annually.
Anyways, that is why I have been away for a while. I've had bigger fish to fry, so to speak.
So, I am looking for a good protective pair of riding gloves and have fallen on the Scorpion Clutch gloves, because they have all the technology at a very reasonable price, especially after price matching...(I can get them for under $200), not bad for gloves that retail for $250 and compete with the top dogs in the $300 - $400 level to begin with. Scorpion is known for such value. Heck, I wouldn't be surprised if some of the competators have their gear made by them.
I am ONLY going to be doing canyon riding on my 2006 CBR1000RR. I may do a track day some day, but that probably won't be until the distant future at the rate this old house is costing me.
So, to my question(s), does anyone have or had experience with the Scorpion Clutch gloves? What is your take on them? Are they worth it? Will they last?
It is either the Scorpion Clutch gloves or the Scorpion SG3 Mk II gloves, but I am looking at the Alpine* GP Pro gloves, but there are plenty of knock-offs out there that make me leary, not to mention the GP Pro's are now being replaced by the GP Pro R2 gloves. Then there are the RS Taichi GP-EVO gloves, but they are $250+ at the moment.
So, trying to find decent gloves for protection without breaking the bank at this moment since I have had major work done to my old house (basement) and still have some other work that needs to be done sooner than later when the weather breaks.
Just was wondering.
Thanks for your time.
Ride Hard! Or what's the point?
