I'm going to use this when it's hot days. Sometimes when it's too hot, I wear nothing. Better to have something than nothing.
And I do have quality gear too.
Ever heard of squids? Going t-shirts and shorts on highways?
That's 100x worse than going 20km/h with cheap gloves.
Ever heard of squids?! Jesus, you're 16, you can't have been riding for more than THIS season! I've been riding a hell of a lot longer than you and have been in two accidents.
My point is those gloves would be a waste of money if you got in an accident. You might as well NOT wear gloves, cause they'd SHRED the instant you hit the ground, guaranteed. If you've really been in an accident on a bike and aren't just saying it to try and sound cool, you'd understand the importance of good gear all the more..
