AGVSPORT’S award-winning full-length sport-racing glove is constructed of premium full-grain cowhide leather with high tear strength and abrasion resistance. High tensile strength nylon thread stitching used throughout and high impact/use areas are all double stitched.
It has a soft and comfortable interior with leather reinforced palm, thumb, and outer of little finger for maximum abrasion resistance and extra palm pads are positioned on the base and outside of the palm.
An extra impact pad is positioned on the outside of the hand before the wrist, perforated leather panels between the fingers, and genuine carbon fiber armor with shock-absorbing memory foam on the knuckles for extra protection.
Double finger vents with perforated leather between the fingers for maximum air flow and pre-curved fingers for a snug and comfortable fit. An accordion leather-Spandex panel is used in the upper hand for the finest non-binding fit possible. A wrist strap with a protective cover and a double cuff closure with shock-absorbing foam padding enhances safety in the wrist area.
“The AGV Sport Laguna Gloves – beat out the much more expensive competition in Motorcyclist’s gauntlet shoot-out including the “Alpinestar’s GP Plus” @ $189.95 and the “Dainese Full Metal Racer” @ $349.95″
Motorcyclist Magazine: “Motorcycle road race gloves must offer adequate dexterity and control feel while you’re on the bike and provide impact and abrasion protection when you unintentionally get off it.
More than a year in the making, this months’ Gear spread gives the gloves-off comparison of what we’ve been using to keep our hands covered during everything from the daily commute to racetrack testing.
AGV Sport’s Laguna gloves became a favorite, comfortable with good ventilation. The palms are double-thick leather and have hard panels beneath the leather on the outsides of the hands. They fit well, offer excellent features, and at $99 are an incredible value, which is why they’re our top pick.” -Ari Henning

“We found the Laguna gloves very comfortable, control feel is excellent, protection feels ample but where the Laguna glove really shines is in ventilation.”
Road Runner. travel
“Most motorcyclists own multiple pairs of gloves as (perhaps more than any other piece of motorcycle gear) gloves tend to be more focused on their specific use. In fact, I never go on tour without bringing at least two pairs, one for the best-case weather scenario and one for the worst.
The Laguna Gloves from AGVSport are definitely best-case scenario handwear. The leather on the sides of the gloves and in between the fingers is perforated and small plastic vents on the knuckles flow an admirable amount of air for a glove this protective.
Speaking of protection, the Lagunas is a full race-style gauntlet glove made of thick cowhide with carbon fiber knuckle guards and a plethora of other protective hard parts.
The leather is doubled up on the palm and over the pinky for an added layer of abrasion resistance. A Velcro wrist strap cinches the glove in place while a two-flap closure secures the glove’s gauntlet over your jacket sleeves.
While this setup gives a snug, tight fit it’s a bit of an elaborate process befitting the glove’s racetrack orientation. For street riders who will be taking the gloves on and off more often, it may be a slight annoyance. The build and material quality of these Italian gloves are flawless. Not a stitch is out of place and the materials exude a premium feel.
They’re comfortable too. The fingers are pre-curved for a natural grip on the bars, but not so much that flexibility suffers. In fact, an accordion leather panel on the back of the wrist allows the glove to expand and contract according to the rider’s wrist movements.
For a substantial, highly protective glove dexterity is excellent. For riders looking for a warm-weather glove for use on the track and/or street, the AGVSport Laguna offers top-notch construction, comfort, and protection.”
