Qualities of the Most Soothing Motorcycle Gloves

By Maricon Williams

Nobody wants to travel while freezing in coldness, isn't it? Thus, we have to don motorcycle apparel. Aside from coldness, it also protects us from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS), heat, pricks, falls, injuries and other dangerous elements.

Motorcycle apparel is composed of helmet, jackets/vests, gloves, pants and boots or any other riding footwear. For the hands, we have motorcycle gloves. There are different types of gloves. Most of them are worn depending on the weather. Summer gloves uses thin lining and are not water-resistant. They come in vibrant colors. Rain gloves, obviously, are for rainy seasons. They are usually made of plastic. They can get slippery and bulky. However, they are often cheap and are easy to carry along. Winter gloves are thick and will really keep your hands warm during winter. Racing or medium weight gloves are oftentimes lined. They are stylish and comfortable. No wonder why racers are comfortable having them in each race. The last type is the fingerless gloves. Wearing can be comfy. However, you can also get nasty sunburn.

In choosing them, you have to consider the season, size, construction and other vital features. To preclude gloves from wrapping around the bar, you have to choose the size that fits you well – not too tight, loose, small or long – just the right size.

Gloves are leather or nylon made. Between the two, leather gives the best protection. Another quality of a good pair of gloves is having extra padding on the knuckles and palms. Carbon shells and tiny metal studs can also be used for added hand protection.

Having washable good linings can also be a good feature of gloves. Aside from that, extensions can also protect you from the harsh and cold puffing air. It can extend up to the sleeve thus, protection is also extended.

Rain is oftentimes part of an enjoyable ride. However, how can you manage to enjoy the ride if your hands are soaking wet and numb? To avoid this situation, always choose water-resistant gloves to keep water away from your exhausted hands.

Another feature is the wrist strap. These straps are usually made from a simple button clip system or Velcro. The main function of having the same is to improve comfort by holding the gloves tightly and ensuring that safety padding is in the right place.

The next time you shop for motorcycle gloves, think about the aforementioned features. They will surely make your ride comfortable and numb-free.
