Viking Cycle leather motorcycle gloves

I have recently been diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) in both hands and it has made riding very painful and less enjoyable.  Since getting diagnosed, I have been doing a lot of research on ways to make riding more pleasurable or at the very least, KEEP ME ON TWO WHEELS!  When I did research, one of the things that kept coming up that would help CTS was wearing a glove with gel padded palms to reduce the vibration of the handlebars.

Yesterday I rode with my pink Mechanix gloves that are very thin but they are what I usually wear when I ride the enduro.  By the time I got to Harrison (only 15 minutes away) my right hand, my THROTTLE hand, was completely numb!  Ever since I had a small wreck about three months ago on the enduro, I have had these problems.

Today I wanted to test out the Viking Cycle leather gloves with gel padded palms.  I took my usual route wearing these gloves.  By the time I got to the cut-off in Harrison (where yesterday my hand was completely numb), today it wasn't!

On top of being really nice looking gloves; in a very soft, smooth black leather, the major advantage is of course, the comfort it has allowed me in riding!  The leather appears to be very high quality and the gloves are not too bulky, with no extra material or anything unnecessary; made with just what you need.  There are no unsightly or gaudy looking logos, just a plain basic black glove.  The gloves also are free of paint scratching zippers, hooks and other nonsense.  The gloves are made in Pakistan, and everything I have ever had that was made in Pakistan has been very good quality.

I got a size small in these gloves as they are advertised as men's motorcycle gloves.  They fit amazingly perfect!  I didn't measure my hands beforehand, but on their website is a chart (which I have included in this review) and after looking at it, my hand measured 7 1/2" around the top of the palm which would make me a small according to the chart in men's sizes, which is what I went by.

The gloves have a velcro closure and are made longer in the back which I like since wearing a short glove seems counterproductive.  If you get the gloves in the right size, you shouldn't even have to attach the velcro and can just wear them- that's what I do.  I read that having gloves too tight could make CTS worse if you are dealing with that.

I have been wearing a ProFlex wrist wrap with thumb loop on each hand that I got from my chiropractor and these gloves fit right over the wraps as you can see in the photo below.  I also tried the gloves without the wrist wraps and they still helped with the numbness in both hands.  I am now only wearing the gloves and saving the wrist wraps for wearing at home.

The gloves are slightly fleece lined and I have been wearing them in 90-95 degree weather and they seem just fine.  They are advertised as a medium weight glove and I feel like you could wear these year round.  They are very comfortable to wear and you almost forget that you are wearing gloves!  Even though these are advertised as men's gloves, I feel like they are unisex as long as you order the correct size.

My husband was so impressed with my opinion of these gloves that he got himself a pair too and now they are his favorite gloves!  He actually donated all of his other gloves since he wants to wear these all of the time, on the Harleys and on the enduro.  I highly recommend these gloves and you will definitely see me out on the road wearing them!

The gloves can be purchased on Amazon here and here on their website.  Check out their website for great products- Viking Cycle
