My Veloce gloves need to be replaced

Plastic over the knuckles got crushed and somewhat shattered, otherwise the gloves are serviceable. While I consider trying to cut the rest of the plastic off of the glove, what has anyone found with comparable build quality and longevity? These were my first set of gauntlets and have stood up better than the other motorcycle gloves I was wearing, so my standards may be high!

if you love your motorcycle, set it free.. if it comes back and hits you.. you highsided

Want another pair? These are XL. I was very impressed with the quality, but just never felt real comfortable to me. Probably worn about 5 times. Yours for the cost of shipping.

I DO I DO I DO! I just finally had my clutch finger wear through in a pinhole sized spot.

30,000 mile 919 survivor. No plans of stopping the abuse any time soon.

I would love another pair! But I'm sporting mediums and love the fit. Send them on to the next guy in the thread!
