PORON®XRD™ IMPACT ABSORBERS
Imagine that up to 90% of impact force never reach your body. Sounds good, right? That’s because of high performing foams that rapidly hardens under the impact making kind of “forcefield”. On the other hand on molecule level material is able to re-distribute the impact force in many directions so the impact that gets out is dissipated on much larger area.
MATERIAL REINFORCEMENT ON THE SIDE OF GLOVE
Gloves feature an extra resistance to injury and abrasion thanks to reinforced additional layer of material on the side and inside the glove.
A pre-curved fingers construction means that the fingers surface is made to reflect the natural glove's position, which is usually an almost closed fist. This way it closes naturally and operates more efficiently on the throttle.
LASER EMBOSSED LEATHER GRIP PATCH
An additional layer of leather with improved grip for easier and more precise shifter handling. The extra layer was laser embossed for better grip.
