Gloves

Why kind of gloves are you slalom guys and gals wearing?

Cheap old worn out ¾ finger gloves. That’s one of the things I will need to address this spring. I like the ¾ finger gloves though

I use Hyperlite Moto gloves - same ones Drew Ross uses in his slalom DVD. They have been great for a year and a half. They're starting to show some wear. Only problem I've found is that the kevlar palm is rough if you're wiping water out of your eyes.

I just switched from the Masterline Kevlars to the Amara gloves last year. I like them - the Kevlar seemed to bunch up too much in my palms. The Amara is just right.

I like an amara palmed glove, too. Some people worry that the kevlar wears on the handle with regular use. I never had a problem though.

I have had a pair of Gladiator Proskin IV for a little over a year now. They have lots of use and are barely showing wear. The fit and grip is good and they don't bunch on my palm. They do not have precurved fingers but fit well. The only problem is Overtons is constantly changing these gloves. I got these for $19.99 on clearance at the begining of last season.

Brian, are you sure those are the Gladiators? If so, how do they compare to the old Proskins III (if you know). I love my proskins, but will someday have to replace them.

Yeah I am positive that they are Gladiators. Couldn't tell you how they compared to the Proskin III as this is the first pair of Proskins I have had. All I know is that they have since changed them again and the IV is now no longer available. Overtons changes their glove design, names etc. like I change underwear.
