Motorcycle gloves, deerskin


B Bar B 's patented wedge design is used in our deerskin motorcycle gloves, also known as "Wedge" gloves due to the distinctive wedge shaped piece of leather in the side of each finger.  Our design pre-curves the fingers of the glove and this provides several benefits.  Our design also allows the use of thicker, longer lasting leather while providing a better feel and comfort level.

Why a pre-curved finger?

  • Greatly reduced resistance to closing of hand
  • Reduction of leather bulk inside creating a smoother wear surface
    • less wear fatigue due to easier grip
    • no rough surface to cause pain and blisters
    • longer wear life due to smooth wear surface

Why are most leather motorcycle gloves made from thin leather?

Thin leather is used in most motorcycle gloves because it is necessary to make a semi-comfortable glove using a standard glove design.  Even the standard pre-curved finger designs must use a four panel finger design which won't accommodate a thicker longer wearing leather because there are four seams in each finger.  These four seams can create tremendous bulk when a heavier leather is used.  Thin leather also helps to reduce the bulk inside the hand when gripping.  Our design eliminates these problems so we are able to use a thicker longer lasting leather while providing better comfort.

What is the best leather for motorcycle gloves?

Deerskin is by far the best leather for use in a motorcycle glove.  Deerskin offers softness combined with the very best wear life.  I use a pair of our short cuff motorcycle gloves for weight lifting and they last and last and last.  Deerskin, as opposed to other leathers can get wet and with very little use will again retain its softness where cowhide, goat, sheep, and others will become stiff, hard, and very uncomfortable.  All motorcycle gloves could be improved with our patented design regardless of materials but we decided to use deerskin because of its superior qualities. 

Customer testimonial
Hello, this is my 2nd order from you. These are some of the best (if not the best gloves I have ever used). After my last order, I put a link on my website (500 members) http://www.arkansasbiker.net and gave my review of these gloves.
