LOS ALAMITOS, Calif. — Roland Sands Design has released a new line of gloves in time for summer riding but which are reportedly comfortable enough for year-round riding (where your customers can ride year-round, that is).

The Barfly glove is made of top-grain cowhide, with protective and reinforced padding in the palm. The glove features a pre-curved design along with flex knuckles to help the rider better grip the brake and clutch lever. Perforated vents add to comfort.

The glove is finished off with a Velcro closure.

“These gloves do the job as protective equipment but they don’t make you look like you just got off a GP bike,” Roland Sands said. “We incorporated the key functional elements with a style to match our jackets.”

The Barfly comes in black, sand (shown) or tobacco. MSRP is $70.
