Whats up guys I been riding the ruff stuff latly here in Miami off the Halandale Inlet,the waves pound riders really hard there at any given time you have 10foot waves, so that leads to my question what brand or riding gloves are you all using I am looking for something to give me a better grip of the handle bars.

Slippery and jet pilot both make good gloves.
I have both.
I really like the slippery full finger.
Gloves are a must in my book in order to keep grip.
Some good grips can make a big difference as well.

Jetpilot are garbage. Mine ripped in a few weeks. I've been using $10 harbor freight mechanics gloves for three months now, perfect, and no more blisters.

I used to sell Quakysense and I didn't get one return. Mine are 3 years old and still going strong

I cut the gloves at the 2nd knuckle.
I like the ends of my fingers open.
I rode 41.6 miles in Daytona in the ruff stuff Sandy left us with.
No hand issues at all and 3/4 of the day was at wot.
68.8 gps on my stock tx 255.
It was a great day!!!

You guys may be right on the quality of the jet pilots as i have not used them a lot.
but i have warn the same pair of full finger slippery gloves since 2008.
They have held up great and the grip with the gloves and umi grips has been great.
