    Klim Induction summer glove video review

    Hello All-

    I Hope everyone is back safe and sound after the excellent Das Rally!

    I just posted this concise review of Klim's Induction gloves. Did Klim strike the perfect balance of protection and air flow in a summer glove? Tune in!

    Nice. How are they holding up? Mine held up very well over 2 seasons.

    She has owned them less than one season, but so far they look good. No fading.
    I plan to purchase the short version for my hot weather glove.

    Yes. If they hold up like mine, there will be no complaints from her. They're very well made, just a tad expensive IMO.

    A couple years latter and they still look good.
    I purchased the short version, but they fit smaller than my Klim Element gloves, so now Debbie has both the long and short versions.

    If you're after gauntlets, I've really fallen in love with the Lee Parks line. I tested the PCi gloves here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z-KNGSIm7Sw&t=21s and since then they've come out with more "armored" versions. Super comfy, if a bit warm for summer - but I wear them anyway.

    I use gloves without gauntlets in order to scoop air up my sleeves on hot days. I just have to remember to spray my wrists with sunscreen, which I always carry on the bike.

    Just bought a pair of Lee Parks simply because I could get them in XXS...fingers still a bit too long . I haven't ridden wearing them yet, but they are soft & comfy. Too long fingers in the gloves sure make it hard to pick your nose . I just wore out a pair of the BMW Airflow gloves and they were just plain too big all around,and they were as small as BMW makes! Very frustrating to be a freak .

    good point on the airflow, but my wrists take a beating, will have to try the spray sunscreen.

    That's why I tried short gloves for hot weather. With my short Klim gloves I can get more air up my sleeves than I get though chest or under arm vents.
    My sleeves are long enough to not expose my wrists to sun except for my leather jacket I stopped using the last couple years.
    The Klim gloves work because of the slim fitting wrist closure. Short gloves like the BMW Airflow with a wide cuff look like they may block the jacket sleeve opening.

    I bought a pair a year ago in white (why wear black gloves in the heat?).

    I've got a half dozen pairs of gloves, and the Induction is the perfect summer glove. Only ones I wear when it's warm out.

    They felt pretty good from the start. The minimal break-in was quick. Definitely my most comfortable pair.

    I see white is still available on Revzilla for $90.
