Featuring the unique NextFit™ technology, thanks to which the NextDry™ membrane is laminated directly inside the glove for superior liner stability. The GT-1 WP is a waterproof version of GT-1 model. Mounted on its soft leather are the ergonomic TPU SAP® protectors, as well as a set of unique protective panels constructed of Poron®XRD™ and SuperFabric®, allowing for a maximum level of comfort without sacrificing safety. A V-Lock™ wrist strap ensures further safety and ergonomics.
HARD TPU MAIN KNUCKLE PROTECTOR
Ergonomically profiled synthetic hard 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.
One of the best cut- and abrasion-resistant materials. The reason why SuperFabric® works so good is that tiny laser-cut ceramic plates are attached over a fabric surface. This unique approach and solution, in addition to the fabric’s surprisingly eco-friendly textiles, demonstrates the high level of performance. In short words - SuperFabric offers over 10x better abrasion resistance performance than leather.
Ergonomic and comfortable, the V-Lock wrist strap features is also designed to be safe. With its adjustment strap positioned at a 30-degree angle, and its buckle on the outer side of the glove, the V-Lock eliminates the need for endless tightening and ensures a good, firm fit, while ensuring your glove will never fall off thanks to its base-of-the-thumb strap placement.
EXTRA LEATHER ON THE SIDE OF GLOVE
An additional layer of leather as reinforcement panels placed on palm and/or side hand provide additional abrasion resistance and improving overall protection performance.
Third and fourth finger-bridge helps to prevent contortion and separation of the fingers in the event of impact slide
NEXTDRY™ WATERPROOF MEMBRANE
Featuring a microporous, breathable construction, the NextDry membrane is a waterproof and windproof solution developed by SHIMA in cooperation with a leading textile manufacturer. Specifically designed for motorcyclists, NextDry allows your skin to breathe while keeping it dry and comfortable, allowing you stay focused on the road.
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.
SILICONE PRINT FOR GRIP IMPROVEMENT
Additional silicone prints for easier and more precise operation of the gearshift lever and for increased anti-slip properties.
ELASTIC PANELS ON FINGERS
The model is equipped with flexible panels that significantly improve freedom of movement.
