A never-ending supply of motorcycle gloves flood the dealers’ shelves each year in every style, color and shape imaginable.
So why, in the midst of this bounty, is it so hard to find the “perfect” glove?
Choosing a pair of summer motorcycle gloves is even more difficult due to the the conflicting goals of air flow vs. protection.Summer Summer
A glove that flows a large volume of air to the rider’s hands usually means a glove with more or larger perforations or the use of mesh or textile fabrics, which may reduce the glove’s protective abilities.
The manufacturers understand this and each summer they deliver evolved designs that try once more to address these compromises.
Note the short gauntlets on these gloves; this has apparently become the norm for summer motorcycle gloves. This means that none of these gloves will fit over the top of a jacket cuff, which isn’t necessarily a problem, but just something to be aware of.
