Ural Summer Gloves: Are they any good?

Has anybody here bought these and used them? Are they durable? Will they protect you in a crash? Any idea who actually makes them for Ural?

They look stylish, well made, and affordable, which makes me nervous... :foilhead:

I've been lookin for summer gloves too. Those Ural gloves do look pretty nice. 2 layers of leather along the outside and looks double stitched. No tpu's but still looks nice for a lightweight summer glove. Most stuff is manufactured in asia even for the bigger gear companies you'd never guess would. Its just the way things are for now.

These reminds me of Revit Fly 2 gloves a little.

Those are summer gloves?
I usually wear some sort of mechanics/work glove when it's warm enough.
They breathe much better than leather and a lot cheaper.

These are my current off-road gloves...$20

If they are like their winter gloves, they will be great.

Well, those are real riding gloves that will actually provide protection if someone is concerned with that.

I wear inexpensive leather driving gloves that are perferated on top
. Nice and Airy, don't get clammy, but probably no better protection than work gloves.

Since it is unlikely to fall off a URAL outfit, I don't see an advantage to wearing gloves - in hot weather - on a Ural.

In about 50 years of riding Triumphs, BSAs, Ducatis, BMWs etc. I've never worn gloves in hot weather, & never hurt my hands.

I've never believed in being miserably uncomfortable - for what MAY be unlikely to happen. Admit sacrificing protection for comfort.

From a safety standpoint - not a fan of gloves, rings, long hair & jewelry around machinery.

My glove story/philosophy:
As an active duty servicemember, I'm required to wear specific personal protective equipment when I ride, and gloves are part of the ensemble. When I was a young Sailor, I had an '86 Yamaha Fazer upon which I enjoyed tearing up the back-roads of Virginia Beach. Since I had to wear gloves, I bought a pair of thin leather driving gloves from Wilson's Leather (remember Wilson's Leather?), like these...

One day, I was turning in to a shipmate's apartment complex, where they were doing construction, and didn't notice the inch of powdery dust/dirt covering the entrance (it blended perfectly with the rest of the asphalt). The Fazer low-sided and I instinctively reached out with my left hand to hold myself up off the pavement. The thin fashion wear glove was destroyed, but my palm had only mild abrasions.

After that incident, I've only used gloves designed for motorcycle riding, with double-leather palms.

Also, I've read somewhere that grafting skin onto the hands and fingers is the most challenging type of graft, so I'd rather take measures to avoid that particular surgery.

I've ridden in gloves for so long now, it feels unnatural for me to ride without them.

+1 on Chad - as a Retired member of the military, the DoD policy was that ALL DoD personnel wore ALL protective gear (helmet, gloves, over the ankle shoes, long pants/shirts) All the time - as a former First Sgt., my job was care and feeding of the animals - including going to the hospital to make sure the hospital was doing the very best they could for my charges. Saw share for years - but 3 years ago I hit gravel that was left on the Interstate exit and I went down. Without that gear, I would not be here today - I've shown a pic of the helmet before, but this is the glove that barely skipped on grooved concrete (max 10 - 15 feet). Three broken bones under that glove when they took it off...EDIT - rode 27 years before my accident.

I have their summer weight gloves and I love them. I did have to modify both gloves, however, because I take a medium and I could not comfortably fit the glove over my hand’s ball of the thumb. I ended up going to an upholstery shop where they slit the area to open a bit and added new fabric for an extension. Other than that, they are now very comfortable.

I ride in regular Home Depot deer skin work gloves. They are only $20, heavy duty, but breathable. Most comfortable gloves I have found.

......... that being said....... I also routinely ride in shorts......

I own several pairs of Aerostitch elkskin gloves. They are easily the most comfortable gloves I've ever worn, thus the multiple purchases. They are sold in fitted sizes, made in the USA and priced reasonably for what they are.

On the hottest days, I default to a pair of Milwaukee-branded demolition gloves.

I have used many Tourmaster products and keep going back to them because I know the sizing....

These are a very nice textile mesh gove with a leather gel palm. Work well in the rain as they dry out fairly quickly as well.

My go-to glove is the Elite 2 that has been discontinued.

Both can be had for under $30 on eBay regularly.

Wilson's Leather at Lynnhaven Mall, generally went to Pembroke Mall though. I hadn't thought about those places in quite some time. Thanks for the reminder.

I am going to disagree with that on all fronts. As you are not going to wear gloves no further comment is needed, the OP asked about THOSE GLOVES, not if you should wear gloves.

First its started about not falling off a Ural (thrown yes, fall no and you buys your gloves or not and takes your chances ) and then onto its comfort thing so you are not going to anyway . So don't make it into something its not, you simply don't based on some perceived comfort. I have other words for it but its your hands. Wishing you luck is wasted, you don't deserve it. That is for people who do the best they can and still get the short end of the stick.

Then you conflate Gloves with rings, jewelry and long hair. that is simply a crock.

Gloves are PPE and the others are not. Putting them into the same category is more self justification (no argument if you don't want to but to make it some kind of logical construct is pure BS) :bs:

Lastly, you are simply F ing lucky. In all my year or riding I only used my helmet once. It saved me from a severe concussion at best and possibly turning into a vegetable. Once is all it takes.

I make my living with my hands. They are worth protecting. Most people need their hands and for most they are worth protecting.
