why not just fill your pockets with crisco...and wear normal gloves, then right before you want to slide dip your hands in your pockets

what the heck do you mean my that it would rub off after a foot or so and rip the glove open and eliminate your hand!

it was a joke actually

but as previously stated...any kind of roller bearing or ball bearing glove is going to get gummed up with road gunk after a while

you could attach some of those teflon/nylon furiniture sliders (the big disks that you put on the legs of your sofa) to the palms of a set of gloves...those would possibly last for a while...then when they get too scratched up to be effective you just put a new set on

What's wrong with these gloves that you have already seen?

(I'd be inclined to think that ball-bearings would easily clog or jam with road-grit.)

well those wear out easily and theyd have to figure out a way to protect the ball and whatnot. id be a downright interesting challenge too
