Hmm.  Despite what you think, the Apollos are not racing gloves: they are just very good summer gloves for general purpose use, so the heads are not a great comparison.  A closer match from Held would be the "Touring Star", but that one is not waterproof, nor has XTrafit etc. and so unsurprisingly is cheaper.
