Good glove for the price
Bought these as entry level and cheap gloves to hold me off until I can afford Held or Racer gloves. I have done tons of research on gloves and decided that for a sub-$100 glove it is as good as it gets. Hard sliders on the palm and wrist are a big bonus, as is the Kangaroo interior. I would like to see a bit more padding on the outside of the hand, and hard sliders where there is currently foam padding on the pinky. One caveat, when trying on different gloves in store every glove fit differently. Even in the large size there were no two gloves that fit the same. This needs to be addressed as it is clearly a lack of quality control on Sedici's part.

PROS: Affordable, Kangaroo Leather, Hard Sliders

CONS: Questionable Stitching, Poor Size Regularity, Pressure Points

BEST USES: Spirited Riding, 3-season, Street Riding

Outstanding Street Glove from Sedici
I'm a sportbike rider. My favoriate gloves have been the Held gloves. I've been riding some 30 years. When this Rapido Sedici was introduced by Cycle Gear I snapped up a few pairs at their sale price. It has all the protection of the more expensive Helds. The fit can vary on the size. I noticed my left hand was right on but the right glove was a bit tighter in fit. I'm a solid 9 for Held and a large for this glove. They break in well after a few rides. The protection is first rate. The price has increased on this glove since I purchased but, overall this is one of the best street gloves and compares with gloves well above this price point.

PROS: Well Padded, Comfortable

Incredible Glove
I have the Cortech Latigo RR gloves also and find the Rapido gloves a MUCH better glove. Fit and feel are better with a quicker break-in period. Safety features are better as well as the feel of the controls. The price is the same and hands down, these gloves are better. Love them! The lifetime warranty is also an added benefit.

PROS: Quick Break In Period, Great Protection, Comfortable

BEST USES: Street Riding, Warm Weather, Safety, Short Trips, Long-Distance Traveling

Great Gloves
I'm very impressed with these gloves. They broke in after one day of riding (felt like they were made for me on the second day). Lots of protection, aggresive pre-curve, definitely a performance oriented glove. I'm looking at other products in the sedici line based on these gloves and their laguna boots.

PROS: Comfortable, Shock Resistant, Snug Fit, Well Padded

BEST USES: Track days, Off-Road, Safety, Street Riding, Short Trips

Great fit, great feel
I'd gone through two pairs of Bilt gloves and upgraded to these on a warranty trade in. Both Bilt and Sedici are Cycle Gear private label/in-house brands, so I wondered whether there would be much noticeable difference, but the Sedici gloves are clearly better constructed. Higher quality leather, sturdier seams, better fit. I've had the gloves for several weeks and have been very happy with them.

My only complaint--and it's minor--is that the fastening at the cuff doesn't provide much flexibility. It's snug over my regular jacket and can barely be secured at all if I wear extra layers in the cold. Having a wider patch of Velcro to work with would be an easy and appreciated improvement.

PROS: Snug Fit, Comfortable, Breathable

CONS: Minimally Adjustable Cuff

Protection Per Dollar, Except...
I bought these gloves because of the warranty. I knew they were budget-oriented and having them replaced as I need, for free, is great. That being said it is sometimes difficult to do so because the manufacturing process allows for such variation in measurements within glove sizes that finding ones that actually fit my hand is hard to do.
The protection seems okay, but the seams are pretty much useless. Every pair I've gone through has started coming apart (velcro cuff closure, cuff seams)after a couple of months.
They're too cold in Vegas winters, they're too hot in Vegas summers. I realize these are extremes but still.
These faults are not damning, as I still endorse the gloves. The redeeming quality is the warranty and the great palm leather. It looks like the Primo has taken a step up in quality and protection so I will be moving on to those when I sell the Rapidos.

Some suggestions: Spandex between the fingers in the non-crash prone areas. It would flow air fantastically.
Correct the wrist strap sizing issue, it seems like a single universal strap size is being used across the size range so the small gloves' velcro doesn't sync up.
Definitely work on the seams. If they wore like that after a year instead of two months, these things would be bloody brilliant.

PROS: Reflective piping, Some Sliders, Italian Aesthetics, Cheap, External Seams, Great Palm Leather, Comfortable

CONS: Sizing Variations, Cuff Could Be Bigger, Needs More Protection, Seams Split, Poor Airflow, Very Weak Seams, Wrist Strap Doesn't Fit

BEST USES: Street Riding, Safety

Lots of Protection!
I find these gloves to be very good, especially at the price. I really like the fact that they have a slider on the heel of your hand, which is a feature you see on well designed glove, and usually high price gloves. It has a braced Pinky/Ring finger, which is another great safety feature. The leather is very supple, and retains a lot of the feel when you grip your bars. The cuff is large, and fits well over a sleeve. I also like the pull tabs to help pull it on. It has box end fingers, which is very comfortable, and most of the seems are outside seems which is another comfort feature. The sizing may run a bit small, but the gloves do run up to 3x so most anyone will find a pair that will fit them. Overall, their awesome for sport/track use.

PROS: Quality, Well Padded, Price, Comfortable, Feel, Protection

BEST USES: Track, Sport, Street Riding

Great Value
Some really advanced safety features for under $100 (heel of palm & wrist protection). Stitching and construction are top notch. Only ridden with them once so far. Soft and comfy leather. Comfort is good. Venitlation, none, but I will mainly use these for the track and not for daily use or in hot weather. They small one size bigger worked for me but still a bit tight between 2 fingers. I suspect they will stretch.

PROS: Comfortable, Snug Fit

BEST USES: Short Trips, Safety
