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.

These are great...they keep my hands just a bit warmer than my regular riding gloves without being too thick. Good for those 40-50-degree days when regular gloves aren't enough. Not for extremely cold temps though...I believe Klim has some thicker insulated gloves for that purpose.Read All Reviews
