Held Titan Gloves

Riders Discount is now proud to offer the #1 pair of motorcycle gloves on the market - the Held Titans. This is not a claim that we are not just throwing out there. It is backed by a large number of independent tests from all over the world. The Held Titans were designed to offer uncompromising safety, and this becomes very clear when you read the list of materials that went into the production of this glove - kangaroo leather, stingray leather, Kevlar, titanium, and carbon fiber. Held could not have built any more safety features into their flagship pair of gloves.

The first thing that nearly everyone notices on these gloves is the stingray leather (yes, real Stingray leather). The stingray leather found on to the major abrasion zones of this glove is something that you won't find on any gloves outside of the Held brand. Stingray leather is extremely abrasion resistant and it is actually slick, meaning that it will not grab or catch while sliding. Standard cowhide gloves can catch while sliding, which results in injuries from the hand flipping. Most riders tend to throw their hands out in front of themselves to break a fall and this instinctual reaction can also lead to injuries. Held helps combat this by adding carbon fiber sliders below the base of the thumb and the outside of the hand, below the pinky. There is also a large piece of stingray leather with a shock absorbing gel backing running along the base of the palm. In addition to the exotic stingray protection, the Held Titans feature some more familiar materials as well.

From the end of the guantlet to the tips of the fingers, the entire topside of each glove is lined with Kevlar. This is Held we're talking about, so you know they didn't stop there. The top of the hand is also guarded by a Carbon-Aramid-Kohlehybrid shell that stops where the knuckle protection begins. The knuckles are guarded by a titanium covered carbon fiber piece that is heated to just over 840 degrees F before being pressed into shape. Held also added shock absorbing padding for more comfort and extra protection. The amazing attention to detail that Held puts into the safety features carries over into all aspects of the Titan gloves.

Each Titan glove is made from 150 individual pieces and it takes around 90 minutes of sewing time to complete a single pair. This elaborate construction means that you end up with a pair of gloves that is not only highly protective, but also very comfortable. Helping with the comfort are the step seams that Held uses. They remain strong while never creating pressure points or interfering with the feel. Elasticated leather panels add to the comfort by making them flexible and giving them a broken in feel when brand new.

If you’re looking for the best of best glove on the market today, look no further than the Held Titan. These gloves sell for $349.99 and Held requests that they be sold for no less than this amount. We feel that a glove of this caliber is worth it due to their superior quality and top-notch safety standards. You just cannot buy a safer glove. These are not listed on our website yet, so order your pair by calling TJ at 866.931.6644 ext 817 today! If you have any questions, please feel free to shoot us a PM or send a note to FORUM at RIDERSDISCOUNT dot COM with HELD TITAN in the subject line, and we’ll get back to you right away.

Available in black...


and white/black from Riders Discount.


One feature that is new to Held is the connection between the ring and pinky finger. This prevents against dislocation of the pinky in the event of a fall. Not all riders love the feel of having fingers connected, but it is easy to cut between the two seems to release them if you choose.


The knuckles are shielded by a unique protector that combines carbon fiber and titanium.


Stingray leather is extremely abrasion resistant and very prominent on this glove. To give you an idea how strong Stingray leather is - using the same friction wheel, kangaroo leather is chafed through after only 4,000 revolutions whereas stingray leather was chafed through after 20,000 revolutions


These gloves also feature a handy little shield squeegee on the left index finger for keeping your shield free of moisture.

Held gloves absolutely rock. I had a pair of Held Phantoms and those worked wonders in my 80MPH get off. These look even beefier. And to get them from TJ is just a win-win. I'll be looking to get these once my current pair of gloves wear out.

I'm pretty sure that means TJ can only sell them at $349.99 unless he really can work some magic we've all known he's capable of
