WARNING--Tecknic Violator Glove Owners
I really like these gloves and bought like 3 pairs when they were on sale from new enough brand new gloves at a close out. 2 pairs of mine survived like 5 crashes.
HOWEVER---as they age, the kangaroo "leather" gets really sucky. In my Open SuperBike race two guys decided to crash into each other in front of me. Lap one, T3 few places to go. I was riding "dont run over the downed riders/crash avoidance" in T3 (at T-Hill)--its a negative camber corner, and in order to avoid prementioned riders on the ground, I had to hit the brakes harder than I would have liked, I lowsided.
I could feel the heat from my thumb, middle finger--the bglove didnt wear thru--but I have hella blisters--I wasnt so lucky on my pinky +1 finger--the glove wore right thru--and I have a pretty decent hole in my finger--they all hurt pretty good---so time to upgrade the gloves.
NO more Kangaroo skin, I always "wondered" about the thinner is better cuz its stronger--aint true, so much heat is generated--things just get burned thru the leather in lieu of the leather going away. Keep this in mind whenst buying single layer Kangaroo gear--I am sure multi layer is much better--a nd again it all depends on how you land--the gloves always worked great as long as I hit "double/triple layers"
