Seen adorning so many top riders, the Raji glove has become a bit of a legend in terms of style and fit. It’s all about simplicity, style and comfort.
The back is ultra thin and breathable mesh - unchanged from previous versions. Rubberised 661 logos replace the previous screen printed logos and have ridges that create an optical illusion when you move your hand.
The thin, tactile palm gives great bar feel and the one-piece synthetic leather padding between thumb and forefinger and onto the palm is burlier than before. Improved stitching adds to durability.
The fit is still excellent and the cuff is nice and tight. All doubts about it feeling less comfy because of the added features were blown away after our first ride. It looks like it’s gonna be another good year for the Raji.
