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 was a little disappointed when they arrived. I had thought for $39 they would be a little more substantial than what they really were. I have bought five or $10 closeout gloves in the past that were more like these gloves than what I had expected. I bought an XX large and they are still a tiny bit snug. And I don?t really think that my hands are all that large. I need a new gloves for a trip I was leaving on that day so I just kept them. Otherwise I might?ve sent them back and spend a little more money to get more what I was wanting.Read All Reviews

Good protection but the fit is uncomfortable for me. The large knuckle protectors seem to pull against the back of my hand when gripping the handlebars which tires your hands. Can’t speak to if this will loosen up after break in as I went back to my old standbys due to them being uncomfortable.Read All Reviews
