Therefore, if the bike professionals think twice before choosing some gloves, we wouldn't offer you any less: gloves for every season of the year, from the cold to the heat, passing through the mid-seasons. And gloves for every occasion, from the track to urban, that fit us to perfection, whatever our size.
Leather is the best choice if we want to enjoy the best protection without sacrificing feel, as their use is usually sport, it's important that they have good ventilation, but when the cold comes, many prefer to change to a textile glove, devised for a more touring use.
Currently we have a good selection of membranes available, such as Gore-Tex, D-Dry (exclusive to Dainese) or Drystar (exclusive to Alpinestar products), that protect us from the cold and wet. Many trust in the more sporty gloves in order to not lose feel, but due to the latest technologies we now have winter gloves that can have a sports feel thanks to the X-trafit membrane from Gore-Tex. And for the Cruisers, we even have gloves that can be heated which connected to the bike's battery have a heating circuit so that you can go to the North pole itself and back again.
Feel and protection, these are the basic requisites that we must demand from some good off road gloves. But also ventilation, as good moisture wicking will improve our grip and comfort. The ventilated gloves are characterised by incorporating microperforations on the stretch fabric, which improve our skin's breathability and will balance the whole glove, being very protected by the reinforcements in the palm. This type of glove is the best for facing the jumps and bends of the motocross circuits. Thanks to the brands Alpinestars, Fox or Shift, at Motocard we have a world of possibilities to protect our hands so you can keep on the throttle. And the reason why there's so much variety is so that you can find the ones you like best, and those that, well, fit you like a glove.
Trial gloves have to have an exquisite feel so as to feel the grip of the throttle and be hard enough to support the wear produced by the rigours of trial. As our hands suffer more than you think on the bike.Breathability is essential, especially on the palm of the hand. Which is why manufacturers such as Hebo have special breathable fabrics in this area, as well as counting on reinforcements and are easy to wash. After all, these materials have been tested by the best riders in the world, including Toni Bou.
