Motorcycle gloves protect the hands while riding a motorcycle. They cover the hands adequately to protect them from blistering, getting dirty, and being affected by environmental elements. They also protect the hands from scratches and burns in case of accidents.
Types of Motorcycle Gloves
Kinds of Motorcycle Gloves include the following:
Summer motorcycle gloves
Summer motorcycle gloves are made of thin and breathable materials such as mesh or light leather.
They usually do not have linings.
They are not resistant to water.
They usually come in the form of half gloves that cover only the wrists, palms, and half of the fingers, allowing the skin to breathe freely.
Cold weather motorcycle gloves
Cold weather motorcycle gloves are full gloves made with linings and insulation.
They protect the hands as well as keep them warm during cold weather.
They have moisture-wicking capability that keeps the the hands dry and comfortable even with the thick linings.
Choosing Motorcycle Gloves (Buying tips)
Grip: Look for motorcycle gloves that provide a good grip—they should not be slippery most especially when wet.
Feel: Choose motorcycle gloves that allow you to “feel” the handlebars even when they are heavily padded.
