Akito Sports Rider Motorcycle Glove

by Piers Storey, last login 748 days ago

Akito Sports Rider Motorcycle Glove  The Brief:
Design, source and develop a long leather race glove at a highly competitive price point.  


Project Background:
This glove was designed to be low cost and high value. Supple drum dyed goat nappa is used in low risk areas to offer better comfort and freedom of movement whilst cow hide is used at critical points to provide a better level of safety.  Perforated leather promotes airflow and accordion stretch panels offer superior flexibility. Polyurethane knuckle guards and foam padded panels provide impact and abrasion protection. Reflective 3M panels offer some improved visibility. The silicon printed palm provides better grip and control. Carbon effect PU leather, contrast stitching, material breaks, thermo plastic rubber badges and printing add to the glove’s aesthetic and promote a feeling of  quality.  apparel design |  fashion |  leather |  clothing design |  motorcycle |  product design |  race |  racing |  industrial design |  sports |  sporting |  automotive |  transport |  footwear |  shoe |  boot |  helmet |  protection |  armour |  armor |  product design |  industrial design |  glove |
