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 am a repeat buyer of the Palm Savers. They fit comfortably under the gloves although the first time using them they felt odd. Previously I had been re-experiencing blisters on my hands after the initial damage (blister). A club member strongly suggested these Palm Savers and they made a night and day difference for me. If you are suffering from blisters, first loosen your death grip on the bars and second get these.Read All Reviews

These are great fitting gloves; very comfortable and good padding, but not too thick. It has started to get cooler out in MD and riding in 40* your fingers do get cold - so these are def not cold weather gloves by any means, but great for 50* plus riding!! Love them and price is perfect!Read All Reviews
