Winter Motorcycle Gloves

During the winter months, riders need their motorcycle gloves to provide different types of protection. Riders who reside in parts of the United States and Canada that experience cold winters need motorcycle gloves that will keep their hands as warm as possible at high speeds. In addition to insulation, they also need riding gear that is waterproof, as they may get caught in rain or snow showers. In addition to providing protection from nature, the riding gear must also increase safety in the event of an accident.

Protective Features of Winter Motorcycle Gloves

To protect riders from the elements, winter motorcycle gloves may include increased amounts of insulation. They may also feature a gauntlet that extends from the hand to behind the wrist. This ensures that there's no gap between the gloves and the cuffs of a jacket. In addition to shielding the body from the wind and the elements, it also offers protection during an accident. To supplement the textile or leather construction of protective gear, gloves, jackets, and pants may include armor inserts over joints. Heavy-duty plastics, composites, metals, and dense padding are among the materials used to increase a rider's safety.
