Motorcycle gloves for each type of rider
Every riding style ask for a specific type of gloves. What you’re going to use the gloves for determines what type of gloves you’ll need. Supersport riders have different needs than a daily commuter riding short distances. Also the material your gloves are made of is important to keep an eye on. Leather is strong and Gore-Tex will be water resistant. Protection and being able to control your bike will always be the most important things. After all you don’t want anything to happen to your hands and comfort will make you perform better. We have categorized our gloves in the following segments:
Racing gloves are usually made of leather. This is the strongest and most wear-resistant material a glove can be made of. They have a long cuff to make up for the shorter length of the sleeve of your leather racing suit. Leather is strong but is also forms a second skin around your hands. This means that you get more feedback through your hands to control your bike even better. Racing gloves offer great grip impact protection as well.
Most adventure and touring gloves will be water resistant. This type of gloves is often used by riders who don’t fear rain, wind and any other type of bad weather circumstances. The more premium touring gloves also offer great breathability to increase comfort. Some touring gloves are even heated for extra comfort when riding in winter.

The right motorcycle gloves for each type of weather
The weather elements are something we can’t control. Nevertheless we can prepare ourselves for anything. From top to bottom, so jackets, pants, gloves, and shoes, can all be used to adapt to the weather. If we talk about gloves we can separate these in different segments:
High temperatures and riding a motorcycle in full protective gear can be, to say the least, uncomfortable. But it should never be an excuse to ride without gear! The same goes for your gloves. There are plenty of options to choose from when it comes to summer motorcycle gloves. These gloves are featured with perforated materials and have mostly short cuffs.
The period between winter and summer and vice-versa is called midseason. These gloves are thicker than summer gloves and less thick than winter gloves. They offer great water resistance but yet still are breathable. Perfect for spring and fall riding!
Winter gloves are the best if you need to face tough weather conditions. Rain, snow or wind but yet keeping your hands warm is what they’re made for!
