Are you one of those people who need to get out on the motorcycle as often as possible? Whether it’s a daily commute or a weekend trip, rain, wind and even snow are not going to stop you. You do have to keep your hands warm though. Here are the five things you need to think about when looking for winter motorcycle gloves:
Good motorcycle gloves are made from strong material. Sturdy pieces of leather ensure you retain a good grip on the handlebars. They also protect against cuts if you fall. So extra protection around the knuckles, fingertips and palm is very important.
Winter motorcycle gloves are a little thicker and have a longer cuff. This keeps the rain out. Waterproof fabric on the outside of the mitts keeps your hands dry and insulating lining reflects the heat inwards.
Our heated motorcycle gloves protect you from scrapes and cuts, and keep your hands warm.
Invest in hardwearing material. A pair of high-quality motorcycle gloves is your guarantee of many years of comfort. Leather, fleece and other synthetics are popular materials for motorcycle gloves.
- Freedom of movement
Every motorcyclist knows that winter gloves have to be sufficiently thick, but it’s also important to be able to move your hands and fingers freely. You need to react fast, manoeuvre and steer with precision. Try your gloves out when you’re out on your motorcycle. That’s the only way to be sure they are a safe option.
Of course, your motorcycle gloves need to be properly cared for if they are to last for years. Leather gloves cannot be machine washed at 30°C. You simply rinse them in lukewarm water. That ensures that the leather remains intact and conforms to the shape of your hand.
