Cortech Sector Pro St Gloves Review: Ventilation On Point?

I log thousands of miles touring the open road each year, and finding durable motorcycle gloves that provide both protection and flexibility is no easy task.

I’ve tested my fair share of options, but could the lesser-known CoreTech brand stand up to real-world riding conditions over the long haul?

But, the main question I will answer in this review will be: Are these the best motorcycle gloves for the summer for you? Let’s find out!

Cortech Sector Pro ST Gloves After 5,000 Miles

After six months of testing, including short rides, long hauls, and off-road excursions, the gloves (1) have survived impressively well. The exterior leather showed minimal fraying around the fingers but zero tears or holes.

Despite several low-speed spills, the PVC sliders and knuckle protection escaped unscathed. Aside from dirtying up, they structurally appear and function as sturdy as when new. Pretty remarkable durability for the price.

I expect to safely get at least two years and 10,000+ miles out of the Cortech Sector Pro ST summer motorcycle Gloves before needing replacement. Given how inexpensive they are compared to competing brands, that’s awesome value.
