Roland Sands Design Motorcycle Gloves

Brand new for 2012, Roland Sands Design Motorcycle Gear is a new line of heritage-inspired products that will appeal to any rider with an old-school mentality. With a slew of jackets that are designed for everyone from the café racer to the cruiser to the flat track rider, the RSD Gear lineup has something for a wide array of riders. All the Roland Sands Gear is utilizing premium materials with extreme attention to detail, and this is true of the Roland Sands Gloves lineup. There are three gloves in the lineup, for three different riding styles, with something sure to appeal to many riders out there.

First up is our Roland Sands Design Diesel Gloves Review:



The Roland Sands Design Diesel is a short cuff, Euro-inspired glove that is unlike anything else we carry. Constructed of premium grade A cowhide leather and accented with RSD nuances, such as the circle RSD logo on the strap, the RSD Diesel Gloves provide solid performance and protection. There is extensive flex ribbing at the backhand for mobility, with foam reinforcements on the fingers and double-layer leather at the palm for resistance to abrasion and wear. The fingers of the RSD Diesel feature a precurve for ergonomics and short cuff closure uses a short zip and velcro strap. We're big fans of the RSD Diesel Gloves, available in black and brown color options.

Next is the Roland Sands Design Mission Gloves Review:



Offering a slight upgrade in protection and a distinct difference in style, the Roland Sands Mission Gloves pair up perfectly with the Roland Sands Mission Jacket. Available in a black/gunmetal and sand/brown colorway, the RSD Mission Gloves use premium grade A cowhide, with perforated panels for airflow and comfort. There is reinforced padding at the palm, with extra layers of leather, and old-school rivets to aid in sliding/protection in a get off. The padded knuckles are actually constructed on their own panel, working with the pre-curved fingers to provide solid ergonomics. The short cuff closure system uses a velcro panel along with an RSD circle logo embossed snap.

Last, the full gauntlet in the line, our Roland Sands Design Domino Gloves Review:



The Roland Sands Domino Gloves are a full-length gauntlet that offer a classic, heritage race style. Constructed of the same premium cowhide seen in the other two gloves in the line, the RSD Domino Gloves are essentially an extension of what we see in the Mission. The Domino Gloves offer the protection of a full-length gauntlet, with leather reinforcements at the palm, foam inserts for impact protection, and old-school rivets at the base and side of the palm to help with a slide in a get-off. Flex ribbing and pre-curved fingers allow for ease of mobility while strategic perforation gets the air flowing through this glove. If you're looking for full gauntlet protection with heritage style sensibilities, look no further than the Roland Sands Domino.
