Icon's Alcan adventures taught them much about cold-weather gear. They set out to redefine the segment to provide warmth and control above all else. The Alcan Glove is the solution: more insulation, TPR reinforcement, an integrated D3O knuckle and revised gauntlet design for a better seal underneath. Alcan keeps the cold out while keeping the adventure in.

Welcome to our detailed breakdown of the new ICON Raiden Alcan glove available at RevZilla.com.
Three-season, cold weather. It's part of the Raiden Collection. So they're going for bomb proof protection aggression, and the Alcan stands for Alaska-Canadian, the Alaska-Canadian Highway. It's a homage to 1800 miles built by 18,000 people in eight months from, basically, the U.S. all the way up to Alaska. Again, you can imagine the range of temperatures. As ICON's positioning it, it's an aggression, three-season, cold weather. So you have a hipora waterproof, breathable liner, non-removable. You're gonna have a light insulative liner. Again, making this more of a fall or wintertime glove. I look at it as waterproof, adventuring, full gauntlet. I like it as a potential commuter glove that's gonna be aggressive within the ICON line.
Again, it carries that aggressive Raiden branding which I'm a big fan of. The sister of this glove is gonna be like the Raiden DKR, which is their three-season or two-season, warmer or hot weather glove which we hate. We don't think it's well executed at all. Don't go buy a Raiden DKR. The Raiden DKR jacket, pant, boots are phenomenal, the glove does not work. But this glove, at just over the hundred dollar mark, is a really nice touch. I think a lot about the sport commuter or the adventure touring hooligan commuter that wants to stay warm and dry moving into the cooler months of the year.
Now, a quick note on fitment. ICON doesn't disappoint, the sizing is consistent, you don't have to worry about it. It's American cut. Use the size chart for frame reference. I'm a size large in ICON and First Gear. I'm actually a size large in Revit now because they fit American. Extra large, in Dynasa. Now Alpine Stars they're gonna fit more Euro, just for frame of reference in some of the more popular brands.
Now, if we look at it, it is a full gauntlet. And staying with our size theme here, our adjustment theme, they fixed the adjuster on the back side of the wrist. This is one of the things we hated about the Raiden DKR car glove, we like it about the Alcan. They got it right. It's got a nice hook, keeping everything in place. It's a single cuff design. Notice it's neoprene coming down with that hipora membrane baked in. Big patch of micro Velcro, kind of sizes up right there. It's gonna go nicely over your cuff. It's got a great style to it. Notice they're using this TPR throughout the glove. That's a thermoplastic rubber, and that's gonna create some additional flexibility with abrasion resistance versus just flex on a glove. So again, you're beefing up some of these different areas.
Back side of the glove. It's gonna be neoprene for stretch, TPR keeping everything together. More TPR on the back of the hand, getting into the knuckle. It's a soft knuckle, but it's TPR, beefy, and ray. So again, shock absorption, abrasion resistant. Not as beefy as a hard knuckle, but again, a little bit more flexible for a different style of riding and a different look that they were going for. TPR, so you can kind of see carbon fiber backing along the fingers, and then you get some accordion stretch going to the fingers as well.
Notice you get your goat skin wrapping around. They're using goat skin throughout this glove. It could be lightweight. You also have a bit of a stretch cordero material which is gonna be your textile. Bring it all together. And I'll tell you that's a lot of feature. There's a lot of bang for the buck. There's a lot of value baked into a glove just coming in over the hundred dollar mark. If you go up in price along the lines of RevZilla in that $150, $160 mark, you start to see Gortex, you start to see full leather, you start to see more premium insulative materials, like Thinsulate or a Primaloft.
This guy's gonna be a bit more basic, and the cold weather scheme, again, dipping into the temperature range. It depends on where you live, depends on how comfortable you are at cold depths, but there are warmer gloves on the market, but it is designed for colder weather. I'm just calling that out. Now, looking at the bottom of this glove, we talked about the cuff and the neoprene. Goat skin up across the palm reinforced with Act suede which is a synthetic leather. It's a suede or Clarino type material. Again, I think they could do a better job capturing that seam, but it's a little bit beefier glove. It is textile in its fashion, and notice here up along the thumb you get a little bit more of a pop of leather. And you have some elasticity along that side as well.
The inside of the glove is quite warm. It's a sueded material. Has a little bit of a fleece to it. It feels great against your hand. Remember, one color only, waterproof, breathable, with hipora, with the insulation, three-season, cold weather from ICON Raden Alcan glove. Look up the Alcan Highway on Wikipedia if you just want to lose a half hour geeking out. We certainly did. And remember, I called out that I don't like the Raiden DKR, but the Raiden Series has been really phenomenal from ICON outside of that one glove that I think they're probably gonna end up tossing next year and coming out with something that replaces it. If I were them, that's what I’d be doing.
