Product Review: Oxford RP5 Gloves

Product Review: Oxford RP5 Gloves

Snapshot: Are these new gloves from the UK based brand worth your Rs 4500 or you should rather look out for more?

These are my second pair of gloves after riding in the DSG Primal for almost one year. First things first, the Oxford RP5 is a decent pair for someone looking for an international brand. The detailing and quality of stitching is also likable but still nothing exceptional. The middle two fingers offer mesh construction on the inner side that certainly helps in the hot summer days. The knuckle padding looks nothing sort of well-built and gives an impression of just a plastic piece that’s molded for just average safety.

I have relatively small palms and used to wear small size for the DSG Primal gloves. While on these pairs, Large is the size for me. These have a good grip on the handlebar which is the same in the inner part of the glove as well. The most irritant part about riding in these pairs is the inner lining of the knuckle guard that scratches your skin and with 1 or 2 hr of continue riding it will leave a red mark on that portion.

It will cost around Rs 4,500 and are decent in terms of overall padding and stitching quality while the knuckle protection will leave you skin red even on the shortest of ride. If you want a full gauntlet cuffed pair of gloves and doesn’t have a budget to go for the premium brands like Rev It or Alpinestars, I’ll recommend you try out the DSG Primal Gloves first. They have significant protection compared to these and are also fairly comfortable for riding condition while costing Rs 1,500 less than the RP5 gloves.
