Deerskin Full-Finger Motorcycle Gloves with Gel Pad
Any experienced biker knows how important motorcycle gloves are for safety on a bike. There is no shortage of stories of hand skin saved by leather gloves with gel pads. Likewise, there are many stories of hands badly scraped in a fall without gloves. Good, thick, full-finger gloves will somewhat protect our hands from becoming “road pizza”.
But that’s not the only function of motorcycle gloves. They protect your hands against the windchill and changing weather. It’s not rare to start a ride in mild, sunny weather, and end up under a heavy downpour. Blood circulates less in extremities. In bad weather, hands quickly become cold. As they cool off, finger and palm muscles become stiffer, joints become more achy, making for a much less enjoyable ride, and most importantly, a less safe ride: as our hands and wrists become cold, we tense up and are much less nimble on the controls. A delayed reaction can cause a bad hurt.
Leather also protects our hands against road hazards such as small pebbles flying off of construction trucks on the highway. If a pebble, even a very small one, hit your hand at 75 mph, the shock and sharp pain are likely to give you a knee-jerk reaction and get your eyes and mind off the road. You may become a hazard to others and to yourself. Good motorcycle gloves will dampen the shock and lessen the pain. Insects in woodsy areas can be a nuisance, hitting your helmet shield and your hands, diverting your attention off the road.
