Introducing the perfect riding gloves for India’s hot and humid climate – the Kruger mesh leather hybrid full gauntlet motorcycle gloves. The Kruger gloves are designed to provide superior ventilation and comfort while balancing protection – making them the best choice for riding gloves. Made with heavy-duty 3D mesh and full-grain goatskin, the Kruger gloves are lightweight and breathable, while allowing for greater dexterity without compromising on protection. The knuckle protection features Sas-Tec™ CE level 2-rated Viscoelastic armor, while the palms, wrist and pinky finger are reinforced with SuperFabric™ inserts for slide protection. The fingers come with soft PVC flex protectors, ensuring maximum comfort and protection. Additionally, the thumb and index finger tips are touch screen sensitive, allowing you to stay connected while on the road. For touring, the Kruger are the best riding gloves available in India, offering superior ventilation, protection and comfort.
- Durable Materials: The Kruger 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 Rated Level 2 Protection: The Kruger comes equipped with premium, top-of-the-line CE Level 2 rated Sas-Tec knuckle protectors.
- The palms, wrist and side of the pinky finger come with SuperFabric™ EVA reinforced panels to offer significant impact protection while also allowing more flexibility and dexterity for the rider
- Designed for Indian weather: We use heavy duty 3D mesh on the upper part of the gloves for superior ventilation with perforated leather on the lower part. This allows sweat to evaporate quickly making your rides during hot weather more comfortable!
A few things to keep in mind when you start using the Kruger full gauntlet touring gloves –
- Putting on and taking off may be slightly difficult, because the wrist area is narrowed down for safety reasons. This is done to prevent the gloves from coming off your hands during a crash and to offer a snug fit.
- Remember, any protective gear is relatively uncomfortable to wear compared to riding without any protection. You may find the SuperFabric on the palm to be uncomfortable on the first try. But just like any protective gear, over a period of time, you will get used to it so you do not even notice it.
- We have used Sas-Tec knuckle protectors to maximise impact attenuation. In very cold weather, these might feel a bit hard, but don’t worry as they become soft & comfortable once you have worn them for a few minutes.
- In our research, we found that the palm size and the finger length are not in the same proportion for everyone (that makes each of us unique in the truest sense!). In such cases, the primary area of fitment should always be the palm area, even if you are to be left with some extra room near your fingertips.
- Fit and comfort are subjective matters and will vary from person to person. We recommend that you follow the instructions on “How to measure size & check glove fit” before finalising the purchase.
- Do not let the hard velcro come in contact with the mesh fabric of the gloves to avoid linting/ fraying.
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
