bmw e30's review of Spada Enforcer Gloves

“Well made gloves, bulky but not the warmest”

Written on: 09/02/2013 by bmw e30 (21 reviews written)

Used these for a few months, mainly going through winter, cold and wet weather. So far they have stayed dry, the lining doesn't pull out, but the insulation in the glove makes them quite bulky to wear and bending your fingers and gripping the handlebars isn't easy when they are new. For a £60 they are very well made, i used the visor wipe today and although it was better than using your glove, the rubber is very stiff so didn't wipe away the water drops on the visor too well unfortunately.
Sizing is about right, if a little generous, if your a large, get a large, if your a medium/large depending on glove, try a medium, it may feel less bulky.
Despite their padded look they aren't particulary warm, even when its 2/3 degrees C after 20mins or so riding the cold creeps into the fingertips and the fingers. On a scale of 1-10 i'd rate these as a 6.5.
Protection and materials is very good, hard knuckle protection and the leather is decent thickness and despite an hour in the rain they didn't leak at all, even on the cuff as i had the velcro adjuster tight to stop water running down my jacket and into the glove.
Wrist strap is ample length, i do have a problem sometimes trying to get hold of the end of the wriststrap when removing my gloves, its ok once one is off but when both hands have these gloves on its not easy getting hold of the strap as it has velcro along its whole length so the end is velcro'd down too and hard to get hold of.
In day to day use they are actually nice decent gloves, look good, perform well and should offer good protection for the hands. They also give confidence thanks to their construction and hard protection being very generous. They do lack feel because they are so bulky but thats expected. Would i buy again if i lost mine? If i was looking for an all round glove they'd certainly be on my list of 3. I have some Spada Predator summer gloves i use alot and tbh, they are quite borderline on whether they will hold up in a crash as the palm material is thin and their whole construction is clearly built to a price, which is coincidently the same at £60, as these Enforcers, but the Enforcers offer so much more for your money!
So overall, a very well constructed glove, comfortable except for a bit too much bulkyness, but this may just be when they are new, attention to detail like stretch panels on the thumb and 2 fingers is excellent, you really do get alot of glove for your money. I can definetely recommend these for sub 10 degrees C use, they should last a good few years too!

Bmw E30's Response to bmw e30's Review

A quick addition, I've now found a scratch 5inches across my visor, only a light one but caused by using the visor wipe attached to the thumb of these gloves. Must have had a bit of grit that got trapped when I wiped. So I recommend never using the thumb visor wipe!
