A long day of riding can take a toll on every part of your body, especially your hands. Twisting throttles and pulling clutches can blister and bruise, especially if done without the protection of riding gloves. A good pair of gloves is the finishing touch to your riding ensemble, providing an extra layer of comfort, protection, and even style.
It doesn’t matter where you ride, gloves will always be a necessity. Going top speeds on the freeway can subject your hands to the elements, causing chaffing, numbness, and other discomforts. Meanwhile, riding through dirt, gravel, or sand with your hands exposed can subject them to some serious damage. Don’t let the lightweight and thin construction of gloves fool you – their fabric has been designed to protect hands in the event of a crash, offering a barrier between the ground and your skin. Riding gloves aren’t just good for protection, however, they also make holding onto any set of bars much easier. Clenching a pair of vibrating bars with tough grips can be very uncomfortable, so having a pair of gloves in between can make the ride more bearable, giving you the energy to go even longer.
With so many sizes, styles, and brands of gloves to choose from, you’re bound to find a pair that fits your needs. If it doesn’t fit, utilize our Fit Guarantee program to get the shipping paid for on your first exchange and take the hassle out of ordering your next pair of riding gloves.

I was looking for an off-road glove that was designed to be woods-specific and designed for busting bark and riding for hours at a time. My riding area is about 5 miles from the house and I ride a lot. Most weeks I can get in 2 good rides. When I got these gloves I thought "I guess isn't a lot of money to the Klim folks" because these seemed to be minimalist gloves for a maximumist price!!! Well, 2.5 years later of hard use and the palms are just notw starting to wear through. I'm shocked at how well these gloves have stood up to water, mud, heat, sweat, and just general woods glove abuse to include clearing trail. buying something that will last is always worth the money.Read All Reviews

Good gloves but, for the money, not sure they'd be a good value? The fingers were so short that I sent them straight back to RM. Got my refund w/o any headaches and bought 2 pair of the light windproof gloves. Absolutely love them. Fit is dead on, fingers are long enough and they block the wind well.Read All Reviews
