This Induction Short glove fits a bit more snug than the other Klim gloves we’ve reviewed. The fit is very similar to Alpinestars or REV’IT! which typically fits about 1/2 size smaller than typical US brand gloves. The tendency to run small is not so noticeable that we’d advise you to buy one size larger, but if you are sometimes in between sizes, your best shot would be to choose larger. Hopefully you’ve had some experience with buying gloves and can choose based upon the fit of a previous pair. If you have no previous experience with glove sizing, go here for help.
Our Two Cents
The Induction Short gloves by Klim are a sport oriented glove for hot weather use. The gloves offer some very nice protective features… leather construction, a full carbon/molded knuckle protector and a padded “slider” in the palm. The knuckle protector is solid, but it has some very nice “squishy” padding on the back side, it is very comfortable on the hand. The leather used in the palm is Pittards brand which is specially made to be more resistant to abrasion and more able to tolerate moisture from sweat. We’ve seen this material in Held gloves for years.
The gloves are for summer use primarily. On the back of the hand, there is part mesh (down over the wrist) and the fingers and other parts are perforated leather. The palm is solid leather, but with all the perf leather and mesh, these gloves should be very comfortable in hot weather. The gloves are lined with a comfortable nylon liner.
The gloves have a very positive feeling Velcro closure at the wrist and the Velcro is the “micro” kind that won’t snag against clothing. And on the backs of the fingers have some very vivid nighttime reflectives (see our photo gallery for the night shots). And you also get an integrated visor wiper in the left index finger.
I like this style and it will suit those looking for a sporty summer glove made from premium materials. We reviewed with the black glove, but the white/grey looks interesting for those in really hot climates where the heat of the sun is a factor. :: Paul, 04-13-17
