Why Wear Motorcycle Gloves & What To Look For

You have the motorcycle jacket, pants, and helmet. What more gear could you need? Actually, there is another important protective piece of clothing that you’re missing: riding gloves.

The truth is, your hands and wrists are some of the body parts that need the most protection. Think of the last time you fell, even if it wasn’t off a bike. Did you put your hands out to help catch yourself? Most of us instinctively put our hands out when we fall. That being said, your hands are very vulnerable to injury when riding a motorcycle. Even when riding slow, your hands can still get injured. Motorcycle gloves can also protect your hands from blistering when holding onto the handle bars for a long period of time. In addition to protecting your hands, gloves can also increase your control over your bike.

With so many motorcycle glove choices out there, you probably wonder which ones you should get. There are several characteristics to good motorcycle gloves. Here are some of the most important ones:

  • Anti-slip grip
  • Palm, finger, knuckle and wrist reinforcement
  • Abrasion resistant
  • Air ventilation
  • Adjustable cuffs
  • Type of leather (cowhide vs. kangaroo)
  • Stitching – will it hold together in a crash?
