Safety is paramount even during your daily commute within the city. Keeping this in mind we have designed the Holeshot to offer comfort along with protection for use in the city and your weekend rides. Holeshot offers high airflow through the 3D air mesh panel on the back of your hand and between the fingers yet provides maximum protection by incorporating perforated goatskin leather on the palm. In addition, we have integrated KNOX SPS sliders on the palm to prevent Scaphoid injuries caused by the grab effect when the palm comes in contact with the road in case of a fall.
The Holeshot is CE tested and confirmed to meet Level 1 requirements by SATRA UK. It also exceeds Level 1 or meets Level 2 requirements on restraint, impact abrasion resistance and impact protection for knuckles.
WHAT COMES WITH THE PRODUCT
- 1 Pair of Holeshot Short Mesh Motorcycle Riding Gloves
The HOLESHOT uses goat skin leather that is durable, light and naturally water resistant. The thickness of the leather is kept high for enhanced abrasion resistance.
CE Level 1 Protection:
We chose the low profile KNOX SPS 303 to provide protection without interference during everyday use. For the right fit and better coverage, the knuckle protectors are configured in 2 sizes to work well for small & large hands. The fingers on the gloves have memory foam padding along with PVC protectors for impact protection.
Holeshot surpasses Level 2 standards for the knuckle, palm and wrist to ensure maximum safety on your daily commutes!
- Palm Abrasion Protection as measured by mean abrasion time on palm area – 3.5X Level 2 standard
- Knuckle Impact Protection as measured by mean transmitted peak force on the knuckles – 3X Level 2 standard
- Wrist Closure Resistance measured as force held for 30 seconds – Meets Level 2 standard
Excellent Ventilation & Breathability:
Heavy duty 3D air mesh and perforated leather used throughout to allow maximum air flow – perfect for hot, humid Indian weather!
We have also included accordion on the fingers for additional stretch & comfort when operating the clutch and brake. An additional memory foam layer is placed under the knuckle protector with enhanced coverage for added comfort.
Our gloves use full-grain goat leather that is naturally water-resistant. However, when leather gets wet, the oils get stripped from the leather – this will stiffen the leather and eventually cause it to crack. Think of it as your skin after taking a bath – you need to moisturize to replace the natural oils in your skin removed by the water. So, what matters for your gloves is what you do after it gets wet. Here is a step by step process to keep your glove well cared for and last longer.
- Microfiber/ soft cloth
- Small bowl or mixing cup
- Absorbent towels
- Soft-bristled brush
- pH neutral leather cleaner
- Leather conditioner
- Lukewarm water
How to clean riding gloves?
1. In a small bowl or measuring cup, mix a portion of leather cleaner in lukewarm water.
2. Dampen a microfiber cloth with the mixture and gently wipe the stained areas. If the gloves have mud splatters, allow the mud to dry before attempting to clean it away. Use a soft-bristled brush to brush it away before cleaning with cloth.
3. Clean the gloves starting at the wrist and working toward each fingertip. Be sure to clean well between each finger. Keep moving to a clean area of the cloth as the dirt is transferred. 4. Rinse the cloth often as the dirt is transferred. Turn the gloves over and repeat on the other side.
4. DO NOT USE HOT WATER
5. DO NOT allow your gloves to come in contact with solvents (do not use fabric softener!), fuel, or cleaning agents.
6. DO NOT use any kind of CHEMICAL or scrub the leather
7. Do not use a washing machine or high-pressure devices to clean the gloves, as high temperatures and pressure will damage the leather.
How to dry wet gloves?
1. Dry the gloves by pressing softly with an absorbent towel after cleaning. You can also do this when your gloves get wet in the rain.
2. Allow damp gloves to dry slowly, as this will prevent the leather from stiffening and cracking.
3. Never dry wet gloves with a blow-dryer or put them on a radiator or direct sunlight or other heat source to dry – this will harden the leather and lead to damage. Also dry the gloves indoors away from direct sunlight where there is good ventilation.
4. While your gloves are drying, periodically put them on your hands to stretch the leather and ensure they don’t shrink.
5. Just before the gloves are completely dry, put the gloves on and shape them to your hand while still damp. Remove the gloves gently, trying to retain this shape in the gloves and allow it to continue drying.
How to condition gloves?
After the gloves are completely dry, apply a good quality leather conditioner. This is very important. Properly treated and conditioned (oiled) leather will breathe and the internal microfibers will move freely in the leather.
1. Use a good quality leather conditioner that will allow the leather to breathe.
2. Apply conditioner and rub it into the leather.
3. Allow the conditioner to soak into the gloves and reapply (if needed).
4. Wipe off any excess conditioner and make sure the gloves are not slick on the motorcycle controls.
How to store riding gloves?
When gloves are stored wet or in a non-ventilated area, this may cause deformations and ruin your gloves, not to mention this allows mildew to grow on the leather causing discoloration and damage.
1. Make sure that your gloves are completely dry before you store them.
2. Place them in a breathable cotton bag to protect them from dust but with enough air circulation to prevent mildew from forming.
3. Store them in a cool, dry, well ventilated area
