Look for riding gloves that are made of a material like nylon, spandex, polyester, or leather.

As of January 2019, I do 45 minutes to an hour of cardio every day, with the exception of Saturdays. I make it a point to work out vigorously—I set goals for myself and force myself not to call it quits until they’re met. For some people, that’s two hours on the treadmill; for me, it’s a 30 second plank or 30 burpees.

Your fitness goals don’t have to match mine, or anyone else’s. Do what makes sense for you based on your personal lifestyle and personality. If you like running, then run! But if you hate running but love swimming laps in a pool, then swim laps in a pool! As long as you’re being active and healthy (and not stinking up the gym too much), then no one can complain about how often or how little you hit the gym.

Synthetic materials tend to be more breathable and easier to wash.

As with any specialty garment, there are thousands of options to choose from, but the primary difference lies in the materials. If you have money to spend and want something super traditional, leather riding gloves will definitely provide a classic look while also providing much-needed grip on the reins. Leather can be difficult to care for – they’re not as breathable as synthetic gloves, and you’ll need to wash them by hand with a special leather cleaner (and then let them dry for days).

If you just want something basic and functional—maybe because you don’t know if riding is really for you yet, or because you tend to lose things—you may want to consider an inexpensive pair of synthetic gloves. These will breathe better than leather and can often be washed in cold water.

If you opt for leather, look for one that is soft and flexible.

It’s important to find gloves that have a secure fit.

You want a glove that has a secure fit. You don’t want the glove to be too tight, but you want it to be snug, so it will not flop around when riding. You also want to make sure that it fits over your wrist or at your wrist if you are wearing your gloves with a jacket. The best way to check for this is by trying a few different brands and styles on before buying them. Try them on with the jacket or shirt you plan to wear while riding and try gripping the handlebars of your bike with the gloves on. This will help you determine if they are going to be right for you and comfortable enough for long rides.

Gloves should have extra grip to keep them in place.

  • Finding a pair of gloves with good grip is essential when riding horses. As you are riding, your hands will be moving frequently to hold the reins and control your horse. To ensure that you can do this comfortably, it’s best to find a glove that has some extra grip.
  • There are multiple types of grip on gloves, so riders should choose the one that works best for them. Some options include: reinforced palms, silicone grip and leather palms. Reinforced palms provide good grip while also protecting your hand from injury if you fall off of your horse. Silicone grip increases traction and also allows for moisture transfer to keep your hands dryer during hot summer days. Leather palms are another common type of grip found on riding gloves because they provide great durability, helping the glove last longer.

Stretchy gloves with laces or cinches can provide a more secure fit.

In addition to grip and dexterity, you’ll also want to look for gloves that fit well. Many of the best motorcycle riding gloves have laces or cinches (the stretchy, elastic-like pieces often found on athletic shoes) that allow you to adjust the fit around your wrist. These laces or cinches should be durable and easy to tighten so that a glove won’t slip off your hand in case of a fall, but not so tight that they restrict blood flow.

If you have a pair of gloves with laces or cinches and are unsure about how tight they should be, put on the gloves and make sure your fingers can move freely. Then, pull down on the lace or cinch at the top of your wrist until you feel mild pressure against the skin there. If it feels like you can clearly feel the threading from beneath it digging into your wrist, loosen it up a bit; if it doesn’t feel secure at all when you try to pull on it, tighten it some more. You want a middle point where you get good protection without impeding blood flow or feeling uncomfortable against your skin.

Riding gloves are an essential piece of equipment that can make your ride safer and more pleasant.

Riding gloves are an essential piece of equipment that can make your ride safer and more pleasant.

The primary reason for wearing riding gloves is to help you maintain control of your bike by keeping your hands firmly attached to the handlebars. Shifting gears and braking require a firm grip on the handlebars, as does riding on bumpy or uneven surfaces. Wearing thin, lightweight gloves lets you feel exactly what’s going on with the bike at all times, which can make controlling it much easier.

You can also think of your hands as a pair of shock absorbers: they’ll be the first thing to hit when you fall off your bike! Good quality riding gloves will provide padding and protection against road rash when accidents happen. Some even come with armor that protects against impact injuries like scrapes and bruises.

In addition to protecting you against falls, riding gloves protect against rain, sleet, snow and biting cold winds that could cause frostbite. They also keep sweat out of your eyes when temperatures climb up above 80 degrees Fahrenheit in the summertime!
