SPIDI’S TX-1 gloves are a spring/summer sports touring glove from the French Spidi, which is back on our shores in 2015.
The first thing I noticed when I put the gloves on is how well they fit and how comfortable they are. Mesh around the fingers is made with a bit of elastic in the base, offering a bit of stretch in breathable material, making the TX-1’s perfect for the warmer months.
The knuckle reinforcement is thermoformed and giving them a good hard knock on a solid surface gives you confidence they will offer solid protection if things end up going pear-shaped.
I’ve been wearing them throughout August on our new Multistrada, at times it’s been pretty cold and I haven’t thought about reaching for a set of winter gloves. On the open road however, it might be a different story. Our banana-bending readers up north might find that Spidi’s Tx-1 gloves are suitable most of the year.
The styling of Spidi’s TX-1 is minimal and the detailing is high. with cool Spidi logos on the wrist and an embossed logo built into the rubber palm protector and the velcro wrist strap’s design is quite funky.
