WHY MOTORCYCLING GLOVES ARE IMPORTANT

To improve motorcycle safety many countries mandate the wearing of protective clothing by motorcyclists, especially gloves

Motorcycling gloves are typically gloves made of leather. They may have gauntlets to protect the rider’s wrists from injury, and help reduce drafts while riding in colder climates. Motorcycling gloves typically have reinforced palms intended to protect the rider from abrasion injuries in case of an accident.

Optional features include additional protection or weatherproofing. For touring gloves, such additional features may include advanced insulating materials and waterproof/breathable fabric, although touring gloves may still lack advanced armoring features used in motorcycle racing gloves.

Material

Leather is the commonly used material. They are durable and long lasting. Most of the designs made out of these materials are sleek and stylish. Examples of the stylish design you can use are gauntlet motorcycle gloves. They are usually padded and lined.

Design

Motorcycling gloves are especially to protect the bikers from injuries but these can also for fashion. These gloves are made from semi aniline of hide leather with 0.7 to 0.8mm in thickness with nickel protection coat which is available in Kevlar. There is a foam padding on finger joints for protection. A reflected tape is also attached to become visible at night. Suede leather is attached on palm to have an extra grip and stylish look. Stitching is done with silver nylon.

Protection

Gloves intended for motorcycle racing typically incorporate preserved finger sections and the best available protection, obtained through additional armor incorporated within the glove. Although maximum facility is an obvious starting point for racing gloves, additional protection should not be discarded. Additional protection may involve titanium or carbon panels for knuckles and the joints of the fingers. Furthermore, racing gloves may and often do incorporate additional wrist and other protection panels to protect the heel of the hand, back of the hand and other easily injured parts of the hand. Though the choice of weather to wear a pair of gloves or not is entirely yours, most bikers do appreciate the need to wear some form of protection on their hands. Choosing a pair of gloves to answer your individual style or budget will never be a constraint, and at Carhartt Gloves, we understand this very well. What is important however, is that the pair of gloves you choose should be a quality produce and do its job extremely well in ordinary as well as tough conditions.
