Motorcycle clothes, including gloves, should reflect the character of their owner. The SHIMA RS-1 is an expression of their owner's sporting spirit and passion. Naturally, gloves aren't just for show - with this in mind we ensured they provide the maximum possible level of protection. The RS-1 is certified for CE cat. 2 in accordance with EN-13594:2015, guaranteeing the highest possible level of protection, as proven in a series of utterly grueling endurance tests.
The RS-1 is made of the most durable, specially selected materials. Constructed from A+ grade goatskin leather, the glove features a Superfabric palm over a set of impact-absorbing PORON foam absorbers. The wrist features KNOX sliders, while the fingers and knuckles are protected with a set of hard protectors and PORON XRD inserts. To ensure maximum safety, the ring and little fingers have been stitched together, thereby preventing serious injury in the event of an accident.
Safety is a priority. Comfort is a priority. There's no need to sacrifice one for the other, though. The RS-1 features large ventilation panels which ensure your hands stay dry. The large, comfortable wrist fastener prevents the glove from slipping, while the pre-curved fingers, the elastic panels, and the external stitching ensures a sure, stable and tactile grip.
Poron®XRD™ IMPACT ABSORBERS
Imagine that up to 90% of impact force never reach your body. Sounds good, right? That’s because of high performing foams that rapidly hardens under the impact making kind of “forcefield”. On the other hand on molecule level material is able to re-distribute the impact force in many directions so the impact that gets out is dissipated on much larger area.
HARD FINGER PROTECTORS
Hard fingers protectors provide additional protection in case of slide and impact.
HARD MAIN KNUCKLE PROTECTOR
Ergonomically profiled synthetic knuckle protector provides exceptional impact and abrasion protection
