For Mazzoleni Gloves, the most important thing is quality, and every pair of gloves is the result of italian artisan production, whose purpose is to create exceptional and prime gloves.
Today we are going to talk to you about the use of Mazzoleni’s motorcycle gloves. In particular, leather gloves, with a protective outer membrane, that are the most suitable gloves for the most extreme climatic conditions.
What is the best choice for your motorcycle gloves?
The glove is an essential accessory for traveling by motorbike, whether it’s summer or winter. It is not just a question of comfort. It is our concern that our customers are travelling with suitable gloves, which improve the safety of the motorcyclist.
During the warmer months, you should wear light and breathable motorcycle gloves, which make the experience of driving better, rather than being bare hands. Besides the matter of safety, protecting your skin from prolonged exposure to the sun can make a difference. And let’s not forget other types of pitfalls, such as insects. Anyone who has been stung by a bee or a wasp on their “bare” knuckles knows what we are talking about.
Suitable for higher temperatures both in the city and on longer trips, summer gloves are short-cut protectors, with perforated handmade fabric construction to ensure better air exchange between the hand and the outside. This type of gloves also facilitates the grip on the handlebars and it is of extreme importance related to both safety and driving comfort. In addition to this characteristic, they have leather inserts or rubber reinforcements in the areas most exposed to abrasion.
Padded motorcycle gloves with membrane, for the most extreme conditions
Padded motorcycle gloves are one of Mazzoleni’s most suitable models for travelers who visit the coldest climates and those with the worst conditions. Most of the solutions on the market include long gloves in technical fabric: they are usually worn over the jacket, to prevent cold air and water from outside entering the sleeves. Despite this, there is no shortage of padded gloves with a short-cut membrane: they are designed to facilitate wrist mobility, without damaging the performance of the protection itself.
Compared to any accessories, such as a helmet or a jacket, the glove should not be valued as an element of secondary importance. And it’s not just a question of comfort. The glove’s ability to keep hands dry and warm also provides active safety. Anyone knows the feeling, especially in the winter months, when the hands are among the first parts of the body that tend to get cold. While driving a motorcycle with a cold climate, without the right gloves, the hand movements get slower and the sensitivity on the controls decreases.
The protective technologies of motorcycle gloves: useful tips
As a curiosity, we report that other rigid protections are then present on the outer side of the palm, to facilitate sliding, once the hands are placed on the ground. All the reinforcements in leather or other abrasion-resistant materials on the palm and in other areas subject to rubbing against the motorcycle grips are also fundamental.
We remind you that the protection of the knuckles is among the most important protection on gloves and can be of various kinds. They range from the carbon and titanium composite material of the most extreme racing gloves to the metal or polyurethane of the touring gloves, examined here.
Predicting all the weather conditions that will be faced when traveling by motorbike is often impossible. Whether you are preparing for multi-day trips in areas with large temperature changes or variable weather, it is advisable to bring two pairs of gloves, one light and one heavier. Therefore, you can select them according to the current weather situation.
Certainly, the Mazzoleni Gloves team will be happy to help you with all your doubts before, during, and after the choice of your glove.
