The Rodney features a short cuff with Velcro adjustment and stretch fabric panels for a perfect fit. The goat skin upper is combined with a kangaroo leather palm, foam protection in the knuckles and fingers, and SUPERFABRIC reinforcements. The upperhand is lined with COOLMAX, and the perforated hand and finger sidewalls provide airflow. And because sweat is inevitable during summer rides, the Rodney is also colorfast and sweat-proof.
Ideal for touring, the Emotion gloves in black goatskin provide a cool solution for long-haul riding in the summer months. The special flat seams keep hands comfortable, and foam protection on the backhand and fingers adds lightweight, breathable protection.
The short, summertime Sambia gloves pair kangaroo leather and spandex for a light but abrasion-resistant combination. Colorfast and sweat-proof, the Sambia also has air vents on the fingers, perforated finger sidewalls and hard plastic knuckle protection.
The Air Stream II summer glove offers premium protection and comfort. The highly abrasion-resistant Kangaroo leather chassis is fully lined on the back of the hand with KEVLAR and COOLMAX. Additional protection is provided by SUPERFABRIC reinforcements, hard plastic knuckles and leather-covered plastic on the side of the hand. The hand is also perforated and the finger sidewalls are mesh for maximum ventilation.

Summer riding means both heat and the potential for showers. The Air N Dry takes both of those factors into consideration, making it an ideal touring glove in both men’s and women’s sizes. The GORE-TEX 2in1 summer technology means that the Air N Dry keeps water out while ensuring breathability and high tactility. The unlined “Breezy” chamber is vented for optimal airflow, while the GORE-TEX “Dry” chamber offers waterproof breathability. A kangaroo leather palm, SUPERFABRIC reinforcements and hard plastic knuckle protection prove that being comfortable in the summer doesn’t mean sacrificing safety.
