Roland Sands Design: 2012 Motorcycle Gloves

RSD Motorcycle Gloves

Three 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.

From the waxed cotton and oiled leather of the RSD Limited Set riding jackets to the Main Set offerings for everyday jackets, to a comprehensive collection of tees, headwear, thermals and hoodies, the 2012 RSD apparel line has something for every enthusiast.

Roland Sands says: “The RSD line is riding gear built with a parallel of fashion and function. Whether you’re avoiding Sunday drivers on the freeway, exploring an unknown back road with more corners than cars, or taking a quick rip to the local watering hole, we’ve been there… and we’ve got you covered,” concludes Sands.
