What Are Differences In Womens Vs Mens Motorcycle Gloves

Icon Mens Motorcycle GlovesOne of the most important pieces of gear a rider owns is a good pair of  motorcycle gloves. As with any other gear for riding a motorcycle the style and type of glove you choose will depend on the area you ride and, the type of bike you ride (cruisers vs. sport bikes), and also the climate where you ride. You're standing on your porch, it`s a gorgeous day, fall is in the air and you can`t wait to ride. You jump in the saddle, hit the starter, flip up the stand, twist the throttle and your off -- in the wind without a care in the world. Suddenly you realize the gloves you have on just don`t cut the mustard -- it`s cold! This is an easily avoidable problem. Icon Womens Motorcycle Gloves

Riders with some road time under their belt will relate to that story for sure. There are a multitude of choices for both men and women riders available online. Although it is becoming increasingly more common to see women riding their own bikes, the selection for women`s motorcycle gloves is not quite as extensive as men`s. What are some of the differences between men`s and women`s motorcycle gloves? The differences are mostly in color and style -- the look.

Both men`s and women`s gloves come in mesh, leather, summer and winter styles, as well as gloves that provide safety features like knuckle protection. Whether you wear pink leather or black -- if the bike hits the pavement -- you need the same type of protection. The only other noticeable difference is in the sizes; however, there are some gals that can wear a men`s large.

What about some of the different materials men`s and women`s motorcycle gloves are made of -- how do they differ? If you only ride during the summer months, or you live in a warmer climate, you will probably prefer a "mesh" style glove. Alpinestars makes a line of mesh gloves they call "Air Carbon." Icon also offers several mesh style gloves for both men and women. Both brands come in several styles and colors: Black, grey, green, orange, red, and blue to name a few. These gloves provide both the comfort a rider needs in hot weather and carbon fiber knuckles for safety and protection.

When it comes to cold weather riding gear, nothing breaks the wind like good old fashion leather. In terms of style, both Icon and Alpinestars offer a sleeker, modern, more compact look in their motorcycle gloves compared to most manufacturers. Depending on the temperature range a rider will experience in his or her area, Icon offers a lighter deerskin glove that gives both protection and warmth. Icon also offers a variety of winter gloves in thick quality leather.

Both Icon and Alpinestars offer great choices in cold and hot weather motorcycle gloves for men and women. So, before you fire up the bike and hit the road, ask yourself what purpose your motorcycle gloves need to fulfill. Keep in mind what temperature extremes you ride in -- you may need both a set of mesh and leather gloves. Most riders will want more than one pair of gloves.
