Don’t wait for last call. Instead, get the new Barfly gloves from Roland Sands Design in time for the first round of summer riding. Intended as an all-city glove, the Barfly merges the best of performance comfort and style, according to RSD. “Not every rider needs a MotoGP-spec racing gauntlet,” says racer-turned-designer Roland Sands. “However, every rider needs a great set of all-round riding gloves.”
Tough but supple top grain cowhide combined with strategic protective padding and a great fit might just make the Barfly your regular pair of gloves. Starting with the pre-curved ergonomic design and incorporating flex knuckles for better feel of the brake and clutch lever, the summer-weight gloves get perforated venting for optimum comfort. The padded palms are reinforced for added protection while a strap/Velcro® closure keeps the gloves from flying off when your hands are on the bars.
“These gloves do the job as protective equipment, but they don’t make you look like you just got off a GP bike,” says Sands. “We incorporated the key functional elements with a style to match our jackets.” Highlights of the Barfly include:
• Top grain cowhide construction for durability
• Strap/Velcro closure for added security
• Pre-curved ergonomic design for better fit
• Flex knuckles for better feel of the controls
Given this combination of style, functionality and comfort, you might just want to order a double! The Barfly comes in a choice of basic black, sand or tobacco colorways. Sizes range from S-2XL and MSRP is just $70 a pair. Get a better look at the entire RSD glove collection at www.rolandsands.com/categories/gloves.
