• New Weise Renegade and Highway Motorcycle Gloves

    Whether you ride a sports bike or a cruiser, the new Weise Renegade and Highway motorcycle gloves have you covered. And the good news is that both choices are pretty cost-effective summer riding kit.

    Weise Renegade Gloves:

    The Weise Renegade motorcycle gloves are for the knee-down one-piece leather brigade. Which means they go heavy on the armour and protection. So the Renegades get full-grain leather selected from the strongest part of the hide. And feature a twin overlay on the palm, integrated TPU reinforcement armour on the knuckles and finders, plus padded panels on each cuff.

    Inside there is a lightweight polyester lining, which helps to keep your paws cooler, along with a perforated wrist section. Stretch panels on the fingers and above the knuckles help to keep you nice and flexible, and there are silicon prints on the palm to aid your grip. Lastly the wrist and cuff are eslasticated and fastaned with Velcro.

    The Weise Renegade motorcycle gloves are available in sizes XS-3XL in Black or Black/White and cost £89.99.

    Weise Highway Gloves:

    Also new for 2017 are the Weise Highway motorcycle gloves. These are designed for cruiser and classic owners who want the retro look with 100% goatskin. On the plams are Chamude overalys to give extra grip on top of the soft, flexible goatskin. And the short cuff is designed to fit neatly under your classic riding jacket, which means you’ll look cool as well as helping to keep air flowing around your wrist and up your sleeves.

  • New Knox Nexos Sport Touring Motorcycle Gloves

    The new Knox Nexos Sport Touring motorcycle gloves look like a stylish way to protect yourself this year. They’ve got relatively subtle logos and details, so you’re not limited to wearing them on the latest sports bike or looking like a bit of a plank. But at the same time, they’ve got all the armour and specs that you might expect by now.

    The Knox Nexos are made from tough cowhide leather uppers, with softer, more flexible goatskin on the palms. You also get elasticated stretch panels at the finger joints. So there should be plenty of feel and flexibility. The fingers also have seamless, wrap-around ends, which means less pain from an annoying join digging into the end of your pinkies.

    To keep the gloves secure on your hands, you get the latest L6 Boa closure system and wrist support, which means they’re consistently fastened and micro-adjustable. So that means you can get them nice and comfy, but also shouldn’t have them come loose or undone if you’re unlucky enough to have an accident.

    On the top of the glove is a three-part kuckle guard built from memory foam and impact-absorbing honeycomb gel under a soft, deformable TPU kuckle shield. So you get protection without having hard plastic either making it hard to move your hands, or digging into them. And you also get the patented Knox Scaphoid Protection System to protect your wrist bones and prevent hyperextension when sliding – there are also sliders built into the top of the fingers.

    The Knox Nexos Sport Touring motorcycle gloves are available in either Black/White or solid Black. The plain colour in particular means you won’t stand out wearing them on any road bike, including a classic or a modern retro. The only real indicator that they’re a new glove is that closure system. And the problem of saying Knox Nexos quickly 20 times. The Nexos are available in sizes Small-XXL, and will cost you £129.99.
