Motocross gloves help keep your grip firm on the handlebars while you are taking on either the berms and jumps around the racetrack or the rocks and logs on the trails. Comfort, weight, durability, and even style are things to consider when purchasing that second skin. This compilation houses some of the big name brand selections for you to choose from.
The Alpinestars Radar Tracker has a reduced material design and the upper construction is made of lightweight, single-piece Spandex. Comfort is king, so these feature a stretch insert on the palm for added flexibility and lever control and are precurved for extended riding comfort. Our opposable thumb species needs some added attention in the thumb department so this glove is reinforced and gusseted for added durability and flex. Alpinestars also gave the third and fourth fingers some love with the abrasion-resistant Clarino reinforcement.
Fox Racing offers several different lines of dirt bike gloves, but the Legion gloves are specifically designed for off-road riding. Extra points to Fox Racing for having these Legion gloves appropriate for the cold-weather rides too. The brushed fleece Cordura liner not only keeps your paws warm, but adds some extra protection as well. The double-layer Clarino puts protection in the palm of your hand and the scale-looking direct-injected TPU on the knuckles and fingers increases protection in areas with overgrown vegetation. Another added perk is that the index finger is touchscreen compatible for those who are constantly connected. Hook-and-loop closures clasp around your wrist and the cuff is compression molded as well.
When roost starts flying, you get just enough protection (and flexibility) from the two-way stretch Spandex material on the body of the glove. Perforated synthetic leather on the palm helps with breathability and comfort while giving a nod to durability in a lightweight package. Cinch this glove down with the Velcro closure and pull in the brake lever with the silicone screen-printed fingers.
Fifty percent synthetic leather, 40 percent nylon, and 10 percent rubber all add up to this 100% Speedlab Ridefit glove. Silicone-printed palm graphics increase grip and the perforation improves comfort. No one ever wants blisters after a long race and these gloves will prevent the painful air pockets with 3mm-thick padding on the thumb.
