iXS Talura II Gloves ReviewThe iXS Talura II gloves have a bold look in a small package. Made out of goatskin leather, the iXS Talura II is everything you’d expect from a glove that falls short of the gauntlet style.Featuring a plush interior with padded, dual-leather layered areas on the palm and ball of the hands, as well as a light textile inner lining, the Talura II is quite comfortable.
When it comes to protection, iXS certainly didn’t skimp on the Talura II. Break-proof PU molding that also allows for additional venting can be found across the top and on the fingers, and TPR moldings add extra protection.Sometimes protection clauses on gloves can considerably reduce your range of motion. iXS wisely included a stretch panel on the back of hand that overcomes that problem with ease. Due to this stretch panel, gripping the bars and manipulating zippers also can be done with ease; you’ll find plenty of stretch paneling throughout the finger areas. Quick Velcro adjustment at the wrist keeps everything tight.The iXS Talura II is a vented motorcycle glove, but were comfortable a few California mornings in the lower 50s. With that said, I would label these as a three-season glove, something suitable for the summer and into the colder months. Now, for truly cold weather, such as when you begin to see snow on the ground, we’d strongly encourage something more suitable.For the street, the iXS is a wonderful option and quite affordable, coming in with an MSRP of $85. The glove is available in two colors: black (men’s) and white (women’s).For additional information, visit iXS Talura II.
