Nothing beats a good pair of gloves. And if you’re looking for a simple, short-cuff glove with excellent fit, Scorpion’s got it with the Bixby gloves.
Instead of cowhide, the Bixby uses goatskin leather that is softer and more supple to the touch. This facilitates almost immediate break-in. Accordion stretch panels are used throughout which give a tailored fit with no excess material bunching. This enhances hand dexterity at the controls of a motorcycle. A simple and effective Velcro strap keeps it in place on your hand.
Trading outright protection for style the Bixby is devoid of fancy TPU armor instead relying on extra foam padding at the knuckles and palm. There’s also extra contrasting leather at the edge of the palm and up through the pinky and index fingers in case of an accident. Light perforation in the palm and inner fingertips make it an acceptable option for summer rides, yet it remains comfortable on cooler 60-degree days.
High on style and light on branding, the Bixby glove is a great option for those riding retro-looking bikes or guys and gals that ride often in the city. The index fingers and thumb are also compatible with smartphone touch screens.
If fit and style are paramount, you can’t miss with the Bixby glove. Fit is true-to-size, that is if you’re a size medium, order a medium.
