Best most crash protection sport glove?

I'm in the market for a new glove. I have the motogp nitrous gloves at the moment and was very happy with their quality and looks. My lively hood is dependent on my hands so I'm curious as to what people's thoughts are on crash durable gloves, thus price is not a consideration.

I like the look of the Revit SLR, the outer seams are good for comfort but not sure if the seams on the outside are the vest idea... kevlar or not.

Short list
Teknic xcelerator
Astar GP plus
Spidi carbo-3
carbo track (not sure about the comfort of these due to the checker things that wraps onto the outer portion of the palm)

8541Hawk will become famous soon enough
I use these: https://shop.helimot.com/shopping/shopexd.asp?id=27

Though these might be the next pair after I finally get around to wearing the old ones out.... Though I have only crashed in them twice so far which means I still have a little while to save up...

I'm happy with AStar gloves. Had several pair and I'll keep buying them. Don't forget about Held. If money wasn't a factor:

I picked up a pair of Icon TiMax Long for $75 on clearance.
comfy, seem well made.
When these first came out...I read an article that said "and they will make for a spectacular night crash!"

If these weren't so expensive, I would purchase just so I could keep pointing this out to everyone I came across:
HELD Phantom Gloves

Side of hands and knuckles protected with highly abrasion-resistant stingray skin, (dasyatis bleekeri), a world first. This is underlaid with shock-absorbing gel, for unmatched impact protection.

So here are the ones that I'm looking at.

I really like the idea of palm sliders to reduce energy transfer on impact
I like the idea of linked ring-pinky finger

but...none of these gloves offer these options, in the end I think I would choose the palm slider over linked fingers.

Spidi Carbo Track Gloves Black/White from SportbikeTrackGear.com

TEKNIC Xcelerator Gloves White from SportbikeTrackGear.com

HELD Titan Gloves Red from SportbikeTrackGear.com

RS Taichi GP-EVO Racing Gloves Red from SportbikeTrackGear.com

right now I think I'm leaning toward the RS
