Hi all, I am from delhi and own the second generation Unicorn. I used to drive 40 km/day. I am looking to buy a gloves which can ease my driving and also for a protection and style. The glove should be usable in both summer and winter, both are the extreme in Delhi. My budget would be something within 2K. So suggest me the options.

Dreams, for that budget I would recommend looking up cramster, dsg and another brand that RSA from Pune (manav any links for this one) had started with. All of them I am told are good bang for th money you'd be spending and look quite flashy too.

You people are the experts here. Please advice which one should I go, from the ones you have suggested. I will close my eyes and purchase it

It should be flashy, looking good and most importantly VFM. I am not looking for the glove which is somewhat full hand, that comes till the area where we place our watch. (Hope I am clear)

Also let me know where I can get it from Delhi. If possible you can let me know whether I can order it through online. This would suffice me a lot, since I am new to Delhi and very bad in Hindi

Thanks.

^^ Thanks a lot for the link. I have gone through Cramster and DSG. I have shortlisted some of the gloves which seems to be good for me and well within my budget. I knew, if it is more flashy and enhanced then the price would be costlier, so one of the glove model I have shortlisted is way above my budget, but it looks real cool

Please help me out in choosing them according to the criteria below,
1. Should be comfortable on palm/hand. (I am basically looking for a short glove)
2. Should be wearable on both winter and summer (extreme conditions)
3. Should be waterproof or it should be wearable during rains too. (In delhi cant predict when it rains)

Now the models and features,

2. Alpinestars Raven Gloves Red
Blending high levels of protection with supreme comfort, the Raven glove offers the best of a sports glove and a short glove, with added ventilation

Synthetic suede palm with leather reinforcements for improved grip and protection
Leather with EVA foam padding at finger knuckles and top knuckle protection
Breathable stretch material panels for comfort and fit

4. Moto Mesh Gloves Red [DGTS002R]
Amara Fabric & Mesh Construction

I have been using the Cramster MX-3 for the past one year now and am completely satisfied with their feel and comfort(they have not yet taken a fall so I cannot comment about their crash worthiness) But please examine the stitching minutely before you purchase them. I had to get mine exchanged after a week of use, but no issues since then.

Any good helmet shops in Pune? My current helmet (basic Studds Jade) is now quite old with all the padding peeling off and I want to upgrade to a better helmet. I had a quick look in Champions Sports on Deccan while buying a helmet for my wife but they seem to only have 1 size per helmet model!

I don't want to go for something too flashy or expensive but something which is reliable, comfortable and has decent looks.

I have a Cramster K2K . The armour/padding riding jackets have, is supposed to be held in place , isn't it ? Mine doesn't , the padding doesn't stay firmly on the shoulder. I have to adjust it and place it over the cuff by hand mostly. Does this mean the jacket is not a good fit , it's large size, medium didn't feel right either. This would mean than any riding jacket should fit snug in order to keep the padding from moving about.

Your gyaan ?
