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.

The gloves used in the sports of racing over bumpy ground on specially strengthened motorcycles are called motor cross gloves or MX gloves.

Freestyle Motocross (also known as FMX) is a variation on the sport of motor cross gloves in which motorcycle riders attempt to impress judges with jumps and stunts.

The two main types of freestyle events are:

Big Air (also known as Best Trick), in which each rider gets three jumps — usually covering more than 60 feet (18 m) — from a dirt-covered ramp. A panel of 10 judges evaluates the style, trick difficulty, and use of the course, and produces a score on a 100-point scale. Each rider’s highest single-jump score is compared; top score wins.

Freestyle Motocross, the older of the two disciplines. Riders perform two routines, lasting between 90 seconds and 14 minutes, on a course consisting of multiple jumps of varying lengths and angles that generally occupy one to two acres (.4 to .8 hectares). Like Big Air, a panel of judges assigns each contestant a score based on a 100-point scale, looking for difficult tricks and variations over jumps

The risk of injury is inherent in the sport of motor cross biking, especially in the more extreme disciplines such as downhill biking. Injuries range from relatively minor wounds, such as cuts and abrasions from falls on gravel to serious injuries such as striking the head or spine on a boulder or tree. Protective gear such as motor cross gloves can protect against minor injuries, and reduce the extent or seriousness of major impacts, but it cannot protect a rider against the most serious impacts or accidents.

Gloves intended for motor cross riding usually feature preserved finger sections and the best available protection, obtained through additional armour incorporated within the glove. Although maximum tactility is a noticeable starting point for motor cross gloves, additional protection should not be discarded. Additional protection may involve titanium or carbon panels for knuckles and the joints of the fingers. Furthermore, motor cross  gloves may and often do add in 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.

Leather cycling gloves

June 22, 2009

FAP-FCG-002

Though cycling involves the entire body in the physical activity, the hands are the ones to control direction and the feet to give power to the movement. Hence, for the body parts that receive most blows from weather and environment elements, the use of cycling gloves is almost compulsive; this means that no equipment is complete without appropriate hand protections. For those who don’t see why cycling gloves are so important, we should mention the fact that the front part of the cycle is the one that absorbs most shocks. At the body level a bump is usually felt in both hands and the butt depending on the speed and the position assumed in riding.

Cycling gloves are gloves designed for cycling. They fulfill three functions: warmth, comfort and protection.

Warmth

Gloves are normally used to keep the hands warm, a function that is chiefly essential when cycling in cold weather. The design of most modern bicycles is such that the rider’s hands remain on the handlebars while cycling, a position that leaves them bare to weather. The hands are also comparatively inactive, and do not have a great deal of muscle mass, which also put in to the possibility of chill. Gloves are therefore fundamental for insulating the hands from cold, wind, and evaporative cooling while riding a bicycle.

Comfort

Cycling places a good deal of stress on the hands, in the form of prolonged pressure against handlebars and transmission of unexpected road shocks through handlebars to the hands. The harshness of discomfort can be alleviated  somewhat by riding position, but is essentially inherent in most designs of upright bicycle. However, choice of weight distribution between the saddle and handlebars is usually determined by other factors, such as aerodynamics, control and long-term comfort. Padded gloves or handlebar grips are therefore useful to increase comfort for a given geometry.

Protection

Putting a hand out to break a fall is a natural reaction. However, the hands are one of the more difficult parts of the body to repair. There is little or no spare skin, and immobilizing the hands sufficiently to promote healing involves significant inconvenience to the patient. So, many cyclists choose to wear gloves all year round to help avoid skin damage in a fall.

Qualities

An improved glove for cyclists is disclosed. The glove comprises a flexible shell including a palm side, an outside, glove fingers and a glove thumb. Resilient padding is permanently secured to the palm side of the glove shell, and extends substantially from the heel of the palm side of the shell toward the glove fingers and across the crotch area between the glove index finger and the glove thumb. The padding comprises an elastomeric layer, a layer of fibrous batting, and an external layer. Sweat from hands can make one’s gloves become unpleasant quite quickly, so it is best to store them so that air can circulate inside if at all possible (for example on a radiator). After a wet or hard ride it may be best to turn them inside-out to dry. Leather gloves can be washed in cool water and are reportedly best dried out on the hands. Gloves should fit snugly but not be tight. Pay particular attention to the length of the fingers as the fingertips can become very cold if the glove’s fingers are not long enough. Ideally the glove should be loose on the fingers and fit comfortably around the palm.

Types of gloves

Fingerless gloves

These gloves are half finger style with cotton knitted back (see through) and leather palm. Padding is very light. Velcro closure for snug fit. All black. Fingerless cycling gloves, also known as track mitts

Winter gloves

Winter gloves tend to be bulkier, perhaps being made in two parts, inner and outer, so that the inner can be washed. They will tend to have longer cuffs, to tuck into jackets and avoid the wrists being chilled,

Mittens

Mittens are good in extreme cold as they allow a single pocket of warm air to form around the fingers. They make use of brakes somewhat awkward

Lobster-claw

Lobster-claw gloves are a relatively recent innovation, halfway between glove and mitten. Two fingers are placed in each of two wide fingers, giving much of the advantage of mittens but making use of brake levers much easier

Weather shield

Weather shields (made by a company called Dry Bike) are small water- and windproof shields that attach to the handlebars and protect the hands from rain and wind. Though not gloves, they serve a similar purpose

Though the choice of weather to wear a pair of gloves or not is entirely yours, most cyclists 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,. 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.
