A decent helmet, jacket, trousers and gloves. Those are the four most important motorcycling clothing items any biker should have. Sadly, too many riders neglect to place as much importance upon buying the right gloves as they do in protecting their head and upper body.
Whether you're in control of the bike or a regular pillion passenger, never skimp on gloves. Invest in a pair of expertly designed and made motorcycle gloves that fit perfectly and protect your hands. Gloves like that are usually best purchased from leading industry names such as Dainese, Rukka, Rev-it, Racer and RST. The good news is that here at Bike Stop we stock gloves from all those brands, and you can either buy online or here at our Stevenage store.
Motorcycle gloves for every biker and every season
It doesn't matter what type of bike you ride, you need to maintain good dexterity in order to keep control of it. That means wearing motorcycling gloves that are designed specifically for that – to wear when riding. Don't think that a standard pair of winter gloves from a department store or other will suffice. Opt for purposely designed motorcycle gloves, so that your hands don't overheat or feel too cold, whatever the weather.
At Bike Stop we have in stock a broad selection of motorcycle gloves that offer the optimum in comfort and safety. What's more, there's something amongst our range to suit every budget:
Summer Gloves –When the better weather arrives, summer motorcycling gloves are ideal. Enjoy riding in stylish gloves that keep your hands cool as well as properly protected.
Winter Gloves – On a bitterly cold January morning, you need a pair of motorcycling gloves to feel warm and completely in control of your bike. Specially designed, thicker, winter gloves are what you need, and nothing less.
Waterproof Gloves – Riding in the wet is hard enough without having wet hands too. Keep your fingers dry and warm with waterproof gloves that allow you full control over your bike at all times. The ultimate option is Gore-Tex (see below)
Ladies Gloves – Female riders don’t need to purchase small men’s gloves to find a pair that fit. No. There’s a huge selection of purposely-designed ladies gloves available to buy these days – gloves that offer full hand protection for women whilst also being stylish and beautifully finished.
Heated Gloves – What biker wouldn’t want a pair of these in winter or when riding in a year-round cold climate? Heated gloves with variable settings allow you to heat your whole hand at exactly the right level. Wow.
Gore-Tex Gloves – When it comes to water-proofing, nothing beats Gore-Tex, does it? Gore-Tex gloves for bikers are 100 per cent guaranteed for 2years. What’s more, as well as keeping your hands dry, they prevent sweating, thanks to their exceptional breathability.
Short Gloves – Protect your hands in style with short gloves in a length of your choice.
Long Gloves – When it's lashing it down, and you simply HAVE to ride (to work or to return home after a few days away...), wearing long gloves is advisable. For the ultimate in weatherproofing, opt for longer gloves that keep out the cold and wet, allowing you to maintain complete control over your bike. Purchasing long gloves from Bike Stop means making a smart investment in high quality 100% protection gloves that can fit over or under your jacket (or both: thanks to the adaptable double cuff design).
Armoured Gloves – 95% of the motorcycle gloves we sell have some armour to keep your hands safe and offer you more peace of mind. Our armoured gloves feature armour for the back of hand and often the palm as well.
