Motorcycle Gloves

Though motorcycle jackets and pants cover a greater portion of the body, gloves are another piece of equally important protective gear. Motorcycle gloves can keep a rider's hands warm in wind and low temperatures. In addition to providing a degree of protection from the elements, motorcycle gloves may be reinforced to offer a measure of safety in the event of an accident. Due to the speeds at which riders may be traveling, they may tumble or slide along the pavement for an extended distance. Reinforcement on the palm can reduce the amount of damage that the hands sustain.
