RESISTOR ® GLOVE
Introducing Resistor ®. The only short-cuff glove of its kind
The Resistor ® performance glove is meticulously handmade to surpass CE 2 motorcycle impact/abrasion standards and engineered to exceed tactical protection requirements.
SO WHAT IS THIS “CE 2” RATING ALL ABOUT?
The European CE body conducts tests that simulate real world abrasion and impact accidents. Gloves should protect hands, fingers and wrists from impacts and abrasion, among other dangers, without impairing the rider’s ability to handle the controls of the motorcycle. Important for this is quality and burst strength of the various materials and the strength of the stitch.
According to EU law, gloves cannot be labeled “motorcycle” gloves unless they pass rigorous safety testing. When researching the competition, we discovered some very unsettling facts. 99% of the “motorcycle” gloves on the market are not rated for the protection required on the road or the track, not even close. What you are therefore being sold and marketed by many companies are not motorcycle gloves, just gloves. Worse, many are rated to dubious standards meant for unrelated tasks such as construction, gardening, etc. That $400 race replica is just as useless as the $40 discount model. Your confusion and sense of safety is their gain.
DID YOU KNOW?
Denim and most textiles will pretty much turn into dust within one second of falling. (About a 5-foot slide) The CE testing body only requires 3 seconds of abrasion to pass tests. Glove leathers on their own disintegrate too quickly.
