Olympia gloves
« on: December 05, 2003, 10:09:53 AM »
I just got my new gloves in the mail, Olympia 335 Protector Gloves.  They feel very comfortable and have kevlar in the knuckles, and wrists.  Mine even have all the colors of the '03 RRs too (red, black, yellow).  They went for about $80 on competitionaccessories.com

I like my Alpines, but they look pretty good.

I presume you mean 20 degrees celcius?

Even so, I have lighter weight gloves for when it gets warm outside, so it's all good.  8)

I got them in white, but that was before they made the palms grey. The palms on mine are white (now grey from use), but they fixed that, maybe some synth oil will fix mine?

I got to try out these gloves earlier this week and I like them.  The only problem, which seems to be the case with most gloves I try on, is that the palms of the gloves are too big.  By that I mean my scrawny hands are length-wise big enough, but too skinny.
