RSD Motorcycle GlovesThree different makes of motorcycle gloves are now available as part of the rapidly expanding Roland Sands Design collection – The Diesel, The Mission, and The Domino.
The RSD Glove program for 2012 follows-up the aesthetics and functionality road map established by the RSD apparel and accessories collection introduced earlier this year.Combining a heritage-based design platform with detailed functional and protective features, RSD gloves are the most comfortable and “control friendly” pair you will ever ride in.Roland Sands says: “Your hands are your connection to the bike. So we designed gloves that offer excellent protection, superior fit and the user-friendly feel that every rider wants. Protection and feel were the top priorities. Plus, they look great!”The RSD Glove program currently offers three styles: Diesel, Mission and the Domino. From the shorty Diesel to the gauntlet-style Domino, RSD gloves provide a full range of protective and coverage choices for any rider. All gloves feature soft, yet durable top grain cowhide construction, a pre-curved ergonomic fit, adjustability, and protective reinforcement in critical areas.Roland Sands Design Motorcycle Glove Highlights:RSD: The Diesel: • Shorty style, full function • Available in Black or Tobacco, sizes M – XXL • MSRP $90.00RSD: The Mission • Mid-length performance • Available in Black or Sand, sizes M – XXL • MSRP $100.00RSD: The Domino • Full-length performance • Available in Black or Tobacco, sizes M – XXL • MSRP $160.00The RSD Glove program is just one component of the 2012 Roland Sands Design collection.
