The Icon Pursuit Stealth gloves may not look the part in my opinion at least but after having a quick glance over the specifications of the gloves I was very excited to get my hands on them.
I was not disappointed. If you can see past the Pursuit glove’s average at best appearance these gloves give a fantastic first impression. The gloves are fairly low cost and come only in black but it’s the nice little features that sets the Icon Pursuit gloves apart.
One of the first things I noticed was that the gloves feature a TouchTech leather palm which allows you to use your touchscreen devices with the gloves on. By no means an essential feature for any pair of gloves but it’s the little features like this that separates an average pair of gloves from a good pair of gloves.
Comfort and Dexterity
These gloves are comfortable! The Icon Pursuit gloves have a whole selection of features in order to make sure your hands are having a dream inside the gloves.
The gloves feature expansion gussets which help to improve overall flexibility as well as the gloves being made from supply sheepskin leather which as well as making the glove durable the leather conforms with the shape of your hands for comfort.
Even the backhand of the gloves are made from the sheepskin for a great fit. To top it all off the Icon Pursuit gloves are held in place by a secure wrist closure which works pretty well.
You can’t really fault these gloves on comfort and dexterity.
Given that the Icon Pursuit gloves are a summer glove heat retention isn’t important but what certainly is important is the gloves ability to keep your hands at a comfortable temperature.
I found the Icon Pursuit to have great breathability and so personally my hands remained at a nice cool temperature on what was a fairly warm day.
Again they cannot be faulted on this section either.
As with most summer gloves the Icon Pursuit gloves aren’t very water resistant and they’re not very quick drying either. Although these aren’t features we should necessarily expect from a summer glove it would have been nice for them to have these features.
The gloves are otherwise phenomenal in every other department.
Safety features are a make or break topic for any motorcycle gloves and the Icon Pursuit gloves are no different. Thankfully they offer plenty of protection.
The gloves have integrated plastic knuckle armor which is in fact pretty hefty and a little bit bulky but given that this doesn’t restrict movement at all I’m totally for it.
This protection appears to be more than good enough to keep your hands safe for those nasty encounters with the asphalt. In addition to physical protection the gloves are highly durable meaning that your hands will never be put in danger due to tearing of the gloves or general wear.
Obviously every pair of gloves eventually comes to an end but thanks to Icon’s decision to manufacture the gloves from a goatskin material the gloves feel incredibly well made and durable.
This means that you can expect them to last you a good amount of time and so increasing their value for money. Overall given that these gloves are fairly low cost the protection is pretty good.
They don’t offer any fancy features with regards to protection like some other gloves do but this isn’t really necessary. The Icon Pursuit gloves are a back to basics, old school durable pair of gloves.
The Icon Pursuit Stealth gloves are simply fantastic value for money. They’re nothing special but when they’re sold at a fairly reasonable price they don’t really need to be anything fancy.
They’re quite a retro pair of gloves that do the basics incredibly well but don’t have any unique features. But I personally really like this.
Don’t get me wrong I absolutely love it when products are very high tech but it’s also very satisfying to find a back to basics, all round quality glove and that’s exactly what this pair is.
If you’re looking for a high quality yet fairly simple summer motorcycling glove then look no further than the Icon Pursuit Stealth gloves.
