New Suomy gloves for 2010 include the Ipermotard and Kangaroo models. The Ipermotard represents a glove made specifically for this growing market in motorcycle gear and it’s made from 100 percent soft leather with carbon and metal reinforcements across the knuckles. The finger part of the Suomy Ipermotard glove is shaped slightly for an ergonomical fit and has breathable parts and “fish scale” work for greater mobility.
The Ipermotard glove also features anti-slip material across the palm and thumb for better handling, while the ring and pinky finger are knit together for better protection in the case of a fall. Velcro closures are part of the glove, which is available in four different colours from sizes XS to XXL.
The Suomy Kangaroo glove is made from kangaroo leather with again, the carbon fibre and magnesium reinforcements in the knuckles. It also has wrist protection and the same style of ergonomic finger shape and breathability. Palm and thumb have grip material included and the stitching on the glove is made from kevlar for greater durability. The Suomy Kangaroo is also available in four different colours with sizing from XS to XXL. For more information see the Suomy site.
