Customers choose their motorcycle gloves based on a few guiding principles: function and fit, protection (safety) and style. While your customer may be more comfortable wearing a short gauntlet-style cloth MX glove on the street, they will give up a significant amount of protection for that decision.
Leather gloves are considered the most abrasion-resistant of all. And riders who have taken a tumble know that the first thing you do when you go down is use your hands to brace yourself. Just like full over ankle boots protect your feet and ankles, full gauntlet-style gloves cover your wrist and hands. These style gloves are generally best for touring and sport riding, including racing or track days.
Joe Rocket’s GPX 2.0 full gauntlet gloves are an updated, more street-oriented version of their popular GPX track gloves. These gloves offer protection, style and comfort for your customers and won’t break the budget.
These gloves feature goatskin leather instead of cowhide for better feel and comfort. Goatskin is softer and more durable than cowhide, and it is a less expensive material Kangaroo skin.
The GPX 2.0 also comes with a perforated back to keep your customer cool when they start to sweat. There is an internal injection-molded knuckle to cover the most vulnerable areas with a reinforced and padded palm. On the back of the fingers and thumb, the GPX 2.0 uses an impact-absorbing material as well as a non-slip texturized palm overlay. The exterior seam construction on the grip side of the fingers allows more comfort on long rides and better feel on the controls.
Overall, the full gauntlet is like wearing a full-face helmet on your hands and offers the most protection. It’s a matter of style and personal preference for many customers. If they like the look of safety and comfort, they will love these gloves!
