VERSATILE, comfortable and practical. All key ingredients that embody a great motorcycle glove and not coincidently these are all elements that contribute to the DNA of DriRider’s Rallycross Pro 3 gloves.
We knabbed ourselves a set of these a few months back, with an adventure bike launch on the horizon, and not only did the DriRider offering perform well for this intended purpose, but since that event we have been using the gloves in a range of riding scenarios.
We’ve also had them on a variety of bikes, and each time they’ve stood up to the test admirably. Constructed from premium goatskin and mesh, the Rallycross Pro 3 offers great flexibility, support, ventilation and comfort for the rider.
There is an easy to use Velcro wrist closure which offers simplicity of use and good security for the glove to stay where it’s meant to while riding. Other features include gel padding on the palm of the glove, a neoprene comfort cuff, and Tricot comfort lining.
There’s also smart tip finger ends for touchscreens, which works well in our experience. Safety features that are ideal for adventure and road riding include sturdy knuckle protectors and a shock absorbing wrist pad.
There is also excellent ventilation, which not only assists with rider comfort in the heat, but is a great aid in drying your gloves if caught in the rain, or even if you manage to go swimming during a river crossing.
We have now put several thousand kilometres in over the last four months of using these gloves regularly, and they have shown no signs of wear and tear at all. They still look almost brand new.
That’s despite our testing regime including some off road riding and getting caught in a down pour across Bells Line Of Road between Katoomba and Lithgow. What we initially thought would be a handy acquisition to our riding kit have turned out to be much more.
They’re a set of gloves with multiple purposes; you could say, a great all-rounder. Available in our tested colour only, the DriRider Rallycross Pro 3 gloves are priced at $89.95 and well worth checking out. They’re available from all good motorcycle apparel stockists.
