Riders often prefer comfort and the feel of their fingers in the gloves over high-level protection, but we all know that this is not exactly ideal, and that is why we have focused on joining these conflicting demands.
The fingers controlling the levers have flexible panels built-in at the joint, which do not resist bending and thus enable sensitive touch control of the brakes and clutch. This reduces pressure on the tendons and minimizes the risk of cramps. The entire glove is anatomically pre-closed for better grip on the handlebars. For maximum comfort, external stitching is used.
The edge of the hand is sturdy, equipped with an Antishock system made of Viscofoam material with a memory effect. Because the pinky finger is hit in the vast majority of falls, it is conjoined to the ring finger to increase its protection.
The palm is usually the part of the glove that must resist abrasion well. Kevlar fibers and stingray skins are also used in the area of the palm. That is then backed by Viscofoam memory foam which protects the shuttle bone. The skeleton of the palm, including the fingers, is made of very fine Pittards leather, which is 2x more durable than kangaroo leather.
To protect the joints, it was necessary to develop a new protector made of flexible material and at the same time resistant to abrasion. The energy of the impact is distributed within the area and partially absorbed by the protector. Additional energy is absorbed by the Viscofoam layer below it. For the glove to fit properly, the dimensions of this protector correspond to the size of the glove
