Motorcycle gloves play a fundamental role for everyone when riding their bikes. They are in fact designed to protect the hands, the part of the body that most affects one’s riding performance. It may seem a minor part of a motorcyclist's outfit compared to a leather suit that covers most of the body, but good quality gloves can up your driving experience by an extra notch.
If you want an excellent product you have to rely on the best brands: Alpinestars, Dainese, Held and Spidi guarantee safety in the motorcycle apparel industry. Choose the gloves that suit your needs, there are different types designed with different volumes, materials and technologies: there are models for summer, winter, leather, fabric, with membranes, short, long, for racing, urban or tourism use.
The main function of the gloves is to protect the hands, providing a shield for fingers, knuckles, metacarpus and palms. In the event of a fall, our instinct leads us to try to deflect the impact with the ground by putting our arms out; thanks to the shock absorber inserts, these gloves reduce injuries caused by impact and abrasion. All products in the shop are CE certified and comply with the latest European safety regulations: the product technical fact sheets provide details on the material specifications, certifications and characteristics.
It is necessary to understand that not all gloves are the same. On very cold days, even a small section of uncovered skin is enough to make the ride uncomfortable: in this case, for example, it is recommended to choose long gloves. If, on the other hand, the weather conditions are mild, then you should choose shorter and ventilated motorcycle gloves, to keep your hands cool during the hottest months of the year. The choice of material is also important: fabric, leather or fabric-leather according to your preferences in terms of style and ergonomics. Leather gloves offer higher resistance and protection against abrasions, while fabric gloves are more practical and comfortable. If you can't decide, choose the best of both worlds: fabric-leather gloves are padded on the inside and have a narrow velcro fastening. Ideal for those looking for good grip, fall protection and excellent ventilation.
