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.
