Best Dual Sport & Adventure Riding Gloves 2017


It was “Supertramp” himself, McCandless, who said it best: “The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure.” There is not a motorcyclist alive who cannot relate to this sentiment, who does not benefit from the same courage and appetite for experience that drives us to become riders of two wheels. Maybe it is the ability for a motorcycle to go where other vehicles cannot. Maybe when we saddle up, we dispense with the false sense of security inspired by four-door transportation. Either way, riding gives us a feeling of raw adventure. It ties us to our humanity, to our mortality - it makes us feel alive. And if that doesn’t make something worth doing, I don’t know what does.

Adventure and dual sport motorcycles were designed specifically to get off the beaten path. To blaze a fresh trail, you need the right combination of bravery and reticence, the confidence to forge ahead into the unknown tempered by a healthy amount of inhibition. The cliche is as true as it is trite; you have to be prepared for the unexpected. Having the right attitude is part of it, and having the right gear is the other. Your gloves have to strike a similar balance between dexterity and protection. The best dual sport and adventure motorcycle gloves will ensure you are prepared for whatever your adventure might serve up, but won’t hold you back from getting there.
