Sleek. Stylish. Classic. The CALIBER gloves are all those things, and much more. They are made of soft, goatskin leather. Their unique design, highlighted by decorative stitching, will satisfy the taste of classical style lovers. The gloves construction is based on pre-curved fingers and the GRIP+™ system, which ensures a perfect fit and more ergonomic grip for better precision in gas handling. The main knuckle protector is made of reinforced synthetic material supported by an auxiliary foam panel for superior protection and comfort. Additional panels with Poron®XRD™ impact absorbers are placed on the fingers and wrist area. The wrist panel is reinforced with an extra layer of leather. The vented design with numerous perforations will provide excellent breathability on warm days.
MAIN KNUCKLE PROTECTOR
Ergonomically profiled synthetic main knuckle protector provides exceptional impact and abrasion protection
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.
REINFORCED DOUBLE SAFE SEAMS
Our specially designed reinforced double safe seams provide extra protection against tearing.
FRONT PALM LEATHER REINFORCEMENT
The gloves provide increased resistance to injuries and abrasions thanks to a reinforced extra layer of leather on the front palm of the glove.
CE CATEGORY 2
CE Category 2 certificate means that the gloves have been tested through in 32 ways to check the protection, materials, stitching, chemistry used and overall ergonomy to ensure the products meet the highest protection and quality standards.
Standard: EN 13594:2015
Strategically placed perforated leather elements provide extra airflow without sacrificing protection. The perforated leather panels holes are designed for optimal protection and ventialtion performance.
GRIP+™ 3D THUMB CONSTRUCTION
The GRIP+ system is a design feature that provide optimal grip by ensuring the side of the glove is perfectly shaped to conform to the line of the handgrip. By keeping the fingers taut, and the back of the hand loose, GRIP+ improves safety, comfort and ensures the longevity of your gloves.
ELASTIC PANELS ON FINGERS
The model is equipped with flexible panels that significantly improve freedom of movement.
A pre-curved fingers construction means that the fingers surface is made to reflect the natural glove's position, which is usually an almost closed fist. This way it closes naturally and operates more efficiently on the throttle.
LEATHER GRIP PATCH
Inside the palm there are reinforced panels that protect against abrasion or impact. The glove does not slip off the handle and gives extra grip in all conditions.
Everyday pulling on and off your gloves can sometimes be difficult, but with this pulling strap it would be much easier, even with one glove already on.
Gloves are equipped with a modern micro-velcro type fastenings, which are not only more comfortable to use, but also perfectly prevent the glove from being ripped off. The hook components do not damage other fabrics around the fastening.
