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.

Favorite gloves so far. They can be a little warm during the summer here in Texas but not too bad in the grey color . They are sufficiently warm down in the 60s as well. I like the knuckle padding as it is substantial enough to provide some protection without causing bruising on the knuckles during long, rough days. Also very reasonably priced for the quality.Read All Reviews

I have only ridden with them once about 250 miles. They were very comfortable and didn't bunch up in the palm area. It was pretty warm and they felt adequately ventilated. I can't comment as to their durability as I have only ridden with them once. So far so good.Read All Reviews

I like the fit of the gloves and the wear of the palms. The palm material is not so thin that it gives me blisters or so thick you lack a good grip. The only two grips is the velcro flap comes apart 100% of the time where the top layer peels off. The foam part that covers your wrist also fades extremely quickly when you wash them just a few time. I always hang dry my gloves so it is not a dryer issue causing the fading. For the price of the pair of gloves they should not fade lighting quick or have the velcro peel off every single time. I was turning a blind eye to the fade/velcro issue but I just bought a few pairs of the Fox Dirt Paw gloved to try again. Those were my go to gloves before using the 100% for probably my last half dozen pairs.Read All Reviews
