Ah, finally replaced the @#$% Icon gloves. I had patched them with Gorilla Tape ('cause it's black, duh) to tide me over, so I got a little life out of them at least.
I picked up a pair of Alpinestars SMX-2 Air Carbon. Only one ride so far, but they seem promising. Good fit, quality and well ventilated. They have a slight cuff, so my reverse watch-tan should fade now.
I have no complaints about them... but I did notice that the wrist velcro straps seem pretty short. If you have Popeye forearms, them might be snug. They work for me though.
