As regards summer motorcycle gloves, we’re looking for something very light, that allows the air to flow but that doesn’t compromise our safety. And all this can be found in the 6 gloves we’ve chosen.

Alpinestars SP Air

We’ll start this ranking with a sports glove, the Alpinestars SP Air, with a long cuff made of full grain leather, with mesh inserts and perforations located for great ventilation.

As for protections, the knuckle protections in injected TPU with air inlets and exit ports to remove the hot air, as well as having an injected TPU slider on the palm.

It’s a high performance glove, to give everything on the bike with superb ventilation. Very comfortable and, by the way, there’s a Lady version for female motorcyclists.

Dainese Air Hero

Dainese Air Hero. No, it’s not the name of a superhero, but another very comfortable, vented glove, in this case with a short cuff, very light and ideal for the hottest days. The main material is cowhide with mesh inserts, the palm is reinforced with goatskin and the knuckle protector is of polyurethane.

Dainese Bora

In the Dainese catalogue there are also gloves with the same concept as the Dainese Air Hero. For example, the new Dainese Bora, short cuff gloves with quite a sports look and that are named the same as one of the brand’s new summer jackets.

In this case the main material chosen is a breathable, stretch fabric with mesh fabric inserts.
