Choosing motorcycle glovesposted by Fraser on February, 18, 2015 in Bike Wear Direct
It is important for motorcyclists to take care when purchasing motorcycle gloves as they will be worn every time you are on your bike and if good quality, should last for many years. When deciding on which gloves to purchase, there are several factors that should be taken into account.
First and foremost, you should consider how much protection they will provide, after all one of the main reasons that you have to wear them is to protect your hands from any grazing or other damage. At Bike Wear, our gloves are made from grade cowhide leather to ensure that your hands are safely protected against harm.
Comfort is arguably the second most important factor behind protection; only if your hands are comfortable will you be able to focus completely on the road. At Bike Wear you can find a large collection of gloves included fingerless, mittens, Thinsulate, Kevlar and more, so that you can choose the type that are least distracting and the most comfortable for you.
For example, if you are concerned about the cold air making you uncomfortable then you might choose a pair with a wrist strap such as the Men’s All Black Waterproof ones which can be tightly sealed against the cold in winter. On the other hand, you can purchase fingerless cowhide ones which are a totally different style and are designed with double strength palm overlay.
You should choose a pair which fit snugly against your skin without restricting the blood flow around your hands. Avoid excess material around your fingertips as loose material can cause burns against the skin and even make you feel like you are less in control. Your gloves should allow you to operate your bike easily without even thinking about how your hands are feeling.
For those individuals who have no idea what glove size they should purchase, you can measure your hand yourself. Put your palm down on a tape measure and stick your thumb out while keeping your fingers together
