Eska Speed Motorcycle Glove Test

If the glove fits wear it.  Words could not be truer with the Eska Speed gloves that I’ve acquired.

If you are not familiar with the brand Eska, here are some details. Founded in 1912 by Joseph Eska and now in its fourth generation of operation, the Austrian-based brand is known for craftsmanship and attention to detail – with over 100 years of experience you better believe this is true.

The Eska Speed Motorcycle gloves are good for three-season use in colder climates, and can be used year-round here in Southern California.  The gloves, designed for sport or sport-touring, are made of goat/perforated goat leather, which is supplied by the renowned Pittards PLC Corporation base in the UK.

The pliable stretch panels in the fingers optimize comfort and mobility while an air intake on each finger increases airflow to keep your hands dry from perspiration. The palm is reinforced with a hard-shell slider for impact protection and it also helps with grip vibration. The Eska Speed’s wrist has a Velcro strap and zipper for a form fitting closure over or under your jacket.

All of this leads to a superior fitting glove with excellent feel. I find myself not having to take them off when fueling up the tank at the gas station or my wallet at the ATM. Furthermore, the leather finger tips work with my iPhone allowing me to swipe/unlock and do basic tasks like see who called or read a message.

If you are in need of a new pair of gloves, Eska will not let you down. The Eska Speed gloves run $144.55, and are available in sizes M – XXXL (Euro 8-12). For additional information, visit real-rider.com.
