I know that Knolly bumped the old thread, but figure I would get all of the new information posted in its own thread.
These gloves took me 3 years to design and were released in 2009. The pro's are the 6th generation of my SP-R line. Hands down the safest, highest performing glove in the racing market.
Here's the break down on why you need these gloves.
Construction and Materials:
Kangaroo belly hide
The construction of the HEROIC Pro's are 100% belly hide kangaroo and the impact zones are sewing on stingray fish leather pouches in all those areas. Different than the existing glove manufacture at the time, I placed hard shock foam under the areas to raise the surface and also to take the blow out of the impact.
I design all my suits to have a short fore arm. The construction of the glove must compensate for this lack of protection. The SP-R Pros allow your wrist freedom of movement that the brake and clutch on your motorcycle requires.
Itís all about safety. All the areas of the glove where you will connect with the ground have raised stingray fish skin which is the most durable leather in the world. We raise the leather off the main level of the glove with high density shock foam that keeps the impact away from the main carcass of the glove. All the finger tips are reinforced with synthetic grip which doubles as slide points. The areas of the glove that have the most movement are covered and bridged to support all the bones of the hand during a wreck.
Hand Design and Fitment:
Have you noticed your hand at rest? Its the same shape as a hand on the handlebar. This is the reason I precurve the gloves into a .... rest point. We took that a step further and built in articulation into the finger joints that bring your fingers back to a restpoint on outstretch. Max performance, endurance; all built into one small feature
Tired of your finger tips blowing out on your gloves? Me too. HEROIC is the first glove to have double welted fingers to a. spread the load and b. to give two seams of protection.
Who wears them?
These gloves have been worn and tested by Jason DiSalvo in World Supersport, Shawn Higbee AMA, Dane Westby AMA, Robertino Pietri AMA, Eric Stump AMA, Bryce Prince AMA, Skip Salenius AMA, Jake Morman AMA, LLoyd Bayley AMA, Eric Pinson AMA, Santiago Villa AMA and many many more..
