Return of the Cafe Racers - Riding Gear – Abel Brown Speed Merchant Gloves

Riding Gear – Abel Brown Speed Merchant Gloves

These motorcycle gloves are a joint effort by American-based apparel manufacturer ‘Abel Brown’ and aftermarket parts specialists ‘The Speed Merchant’. In their first collaborative partnership, the pair designed a glove that’s equal parts form and function to offer riders the best of both worlds. Each pair of Collab Gloves are constructed from great looking tan and black full grain, premium cowhide leather with contrast stitching for a classic racing look.

Unlike other style-focused gloves on the market, the Abel Brown/Speed Merchant Collab Gloves offer a degree of protection that satisfies our own stringent safety requirements. Extra panelling on the palms and double stitching throughout provides exceptional abrasion resistance. Armour on the knuckles and padded finger panels helps prevent damage from hard knocks and the mid length cuff keeps your wrists covered. For comfort, the fingers are vented and ribbed to aid with movement and the gloves are secured using a large velcro panel on the wrist. An added bonus feature of the gloves is the “Tech Touch” panel on each index finger tip which allows the wearer to operate a touchscreen device without removing them.
