Joe Rocket Motorcycle SpeedmasterJoe Rocket Speedmaster gloves have been around for quite a while. I see a lot to like about the latest incarnation, the Speedmaster 8.0. I guess 8.0 means that this is the 8th version -- I'm quick that way.

Anyway, here's what the glove has to offer. It has the standard drum-dyed leather construction as its base. What this glove has that some of the older Speedmasters didn't is a full compliment of armored inserts. It has injection-molded, vented knuckles. It also has molded reinforcements at the cuff (in carbon fiber) and at the fingers. Finally, it has armored plastic reinforcement in the palms. This is the only place that I have a potential gripe. The palms on these gloves may tend to get bulky. This is a conundrum on good motorcycling gloves. The palms must be protected, but often that protection can impede "feel".

I like the double cuff closure on the Speedmaster. This is a nice system. The Speedmaster gloves are available in sizes small through 2XL. Three color combinations are offered in black, blue, and red.

This is a good-looking, well-constructed sport glove from the Rocket people.
