    It looks like Racer has updated its website to correct the CE standard to which the gloves are certified. Racer still states that the Dynamic 2 glove is CE Level 2. I guess that’s why there’s a “2” in the glove’s name.

    Smoke n mirrors, they don't say which standard, if I was buying PPE for PPE purposes I'd not buy from anyone online who didn't publish their EC type certificates.

    To get the certification the Safety Grip had to have reinforced seams, which meant they were on the outside of the glove. They looked wrong and felt chunky but you got used to them. With the seams being external they probably suffered more wear and tear.
    As Spin mentioned, Held make very good gloves and they opt for higher quality leather than other brands pitched at the same level.
    I used to advise trainees that, as a cheaper alternative to motorcycle gloves, an anti slash work glove would offer them a fair amount of protection on the palm.

    Isn't that what Paul Varnsverry used to ride around in? A pair of chainsaw safety gloves?

    Thumbs up Belstaff Hesketh & Belstaff Sprite gloves: CE Level 2

    Thumbs up to Belstaff for certifying gloves to CE Level 2. Both the Belstaff Hesketh waterproof gloves and the Sprite nappa leather gloves are CE Level 2.

    RST Rallye gloves are CE Level 2 too.

    Alpinestars GP Tech CE2 gloves purchased February. Collected my bike from the dealership today and after 1 days use came apart at the seam. As they're over 30 days old they apparently need to go to Alpinestars for a replacement. Really concerned apart the quality and strength if I'd actually crashed!

    Would you want another set of those? Refund or Trading Standards?

    That's what I'm thinking, I've emailed Alpinestars and will update with response.

    I trust the shop will give you a full refund. That's shocking quality control
    Unfortunately, isn't Alpinestars in Italy closed because of the pandemic?

    If you're after top build quality, then check out BKS Made-to-Measure gloves. If the BKS gloves are anything like their leathers, then I expect the quality should be flawless, and the BKS M2M race gloves are marginally cheaper than the GP Tech gloves too.

    And your claim is against the retailer, not the manufacturer. Fit for purpose and/or marketable quality.

    Someone should ask BKS whether their gloves meet the standard. Their site doesn't say. They've always been very big on standards with their suits. https://www.bksleather.co.uk/product...ssories/gloves

    No they don't... check your rights... the dealer is responsible in the first case.

    Judging from your last photo they don't fit you, try a size down.
